I’ve had many many questions about the fast and fabulous room makeover. Aaron Christensen (my famous designer artist old friend I taught hi-low aerobics with) and I threw this room together really quickly. Aaron did most of the work by building the desk and shelving at his studio. Once he showed up last Sunday morning, it was a whirlwind of activity. I think we took these shots at 3 pm. Not bad. Truly, it’s the coolest boy bedroom ever!
1. Hexagon Honeycomb shelving – Aaron made these, but you can find already assembled sets on Etsy.
2. LUCAS- that’s actually a thin wood cut out of my son’s name and we painted the same orange as the strip. I found several styles on Etsy.
3. LUCAS Subway art– I think I got this one off Groopdealz. It was crazy inexpensive.
4. That is Aaron’s art. It’s sold in all the cool places because he’s famous……..remember?
5. Artificial Turf Bulletin Board– Aaron just whipped this up with his magic hands. He used cork, artificial turf, and stencils.
6. Bedding- It’s from Target. About a year old. I bought the set on clearance for about $29. SCORE! The original colors were really really bright and I didn’t think the grey went with the tan walls. Aaron patted my head and told me not to worry……….that he had a plan. He concocted his own blend of dye colors and dyed it. Kind of like a tea stain. It muted the colors enough to blend with the tan walls. Perfection!
Here are a couple of similar ideas.
7. The chair is from IKEA. $34. I used my silhouette to cut out my son’s soccer numbers. Aaron applied them because he knows I’m not a perfectionist and would probably make it a little crooked. 🙂
8. My beautiful son with dirty feet. We had him running out to the garage all day grabbing supplies. He hasn’t moved from this bed in one week. He loves the room!
9. 9? There is no nine..…….but I meant to do a 9. Soccer balls. I picked up foam soccer balls and mini soccer balls at Walmart. We stuck a hole in the foam ones, inserted a molly screw type thing with hot glue. With the mini’s we used the air needle thingy………we tied black party string to the needle thingy’s and strung them up!
It’s easy to get overwhelmed when planning a room makeover! When updating a room, you want to try and create a plan that will last a few years. I doubt I’ll have to re-do this room until he leaves for college.
