teen boy bedroom {the ORC edition} week two

Here we are, week two of the One Room Challenge.

Here is the plan for my 16 year room update:

-repaint the wall from "old" yellow to white,
-put up some "bricks" on the main wall,
-add some shelves above the dresser,
-update the window covering,
-update bedding,
-decorate the room.

1) brick paneling from Homedepot.
2) shelves tutorial from the DIY playbook
3) dresser from RHTeen (not happening, but beautiful!)
4) light from IKEA
5) bedding inspiration from RHTeen.

So far, I managed to repaint the walls
and purchased the brick panelling....
which was a fun experiment (not!)
We have tight stairs and bring these 4 x 8 feet panels
up was not a cake walk.
We are letting them acclimate to the room.
It will be a busy weekend!

Here are two of my favorite teen boy room updates:

  1. Ahh, love that quote from Le Petit Prince AND loving your inspirational photos for your bedroom makeover, I love that industrial style. I'm mulling over making over my little guy's room so I'm already getting some inspiration, best of luck these next few ORC weeks! Kristin @ Postbox Designs

  2. Thank you Kristin. I hope it goes as planned, it is just harder to work on someone's else room...with their teenager early morning work!

  3. I love all of your ideas! Wander for a cute!! Also the bricks are a great idea! I've never seen brick panels but I can imagine they aren't fun to carry, especially up stairs! I can't wait to see the finished project though! I wish you a very happy ORC!

    1. Thank you Ginnie, it is going along slowly but there is progress!
      the brick panelling is pretty much like regular panelling, just large and flexible and breakable...after bringing them upstairs, I realized they had to be cut....we did that in the room, no back and forth....


Merci pour vos commentaires, I will get back to you as soon as I can!

Christmas crafting: it was a busy month!

This December was very busy with a lot of crafting, sewing, quilting, baking. I found it easier to share on Instagram (not something I thou...
