Today, I'm a part of a really fun blog hop that's all about the BOYS! This week, we're celebrating "Boy Mom Madness" in all sorts of ways. Today, we're sharing our boys' bedrooms. I'm literally smack dab in the middle of a makeover of my older son's room (I was truly hoping to have it finished by today...however, it's been a doozy of a month). But, below is just a little look at the spaces they call their own. And of course, check out these GORGEOUS rooms from my boy mom bloggy friends, too.
This week's series is so much fun! While my boys' rooms are somewhat simple, they're very special places in our homes. They're their havens. Their own little pieces of the world. While my older son's room hadn't been touched in six years (have mercy), I'm still showing the photos of the way it looked (before this month, when I started ripping into it. Literally.). Check out the fun below.
I just showed you all this room last month, but I can't let a boy's bedroom post go without including a few photos of my younger son's room. This is his Star Wars room that we finished a couple of years ago. The bedding is fun, huh? It zips up so they can easily make the beds every morning (honestly, while they both have their own rooms, but they usually both sleep in this room).
This is how it looks when guests sleepover (as this room doubles as our guest room). While we love our zip-up bedding, our adult guests may not want to be burrito-ed all night long! ;) These are some simple duvets. My kids weren't great at making their beds with these in place, so we were excited to use the others. I painted the Star Wars canvases above the beds. You can see that tutorial here. The lamp was also a Goodwill find that I redid here.
I made the drapes out of twin-sized sheets.
And the roller basket is such a fun light-saber catcher (it holds all things dress-up).
This is the other side of the room. The board and batten only cost us $30!
Here's our complete tutorial for it here.
Again, this room is painfully old. But, I still love it. I did a paper bag wall treatment in here (Lord, help me...never again). This is what my older son's room looked like before paper-bag-stripping-mageddon started this month. I used tin tubs from the tractor store for toys. And rain gutters for books. It was super cute for my five-year-old cowpoke...now that he's a ten-year-old preteen, he's kind of (completely) over it. Sniff.
We recently reorganized the Legos in this room with this big system.
Check out the whole thing here (with links to the free printables).
The rain gutter/bookshelf tutorial is here.
To prove my complete hatred for the wall treatment that I adored so much years ago when I applied it...here's the madness of my own that I'm still in the midst of.
Don't ever do this. Just paint walls. Seriously.
