Boys room decor....

Pin It
It's finally done. At least the walls and paint are. We've been working so hard on my second son's room. (Thus the reason for a little MIA last week.)
It is temporarily set up for a guest room but looks great! I have to touch up a couple of paint places and finish the wall art but thought I would give you a peak at what we've done so far. I am thrilled with it. It was a lot of hard work. Dear hubby HATES this kind of stuff. He can fix your computer but building walls drives him nuts. Between the two of us we make quite the team. I use my experience as a kid helping dad build on the house and google what I don't remember to build the master plan. Of course this master plan is in my head and translating that into something tangible is always more work than you'd think. I did the taping and texturing and am loving this more than the first bedroom we did. I learned a bit and of course practice does make perfect.

I'm not sure where the idea to mix blue and green came from but I really like it. It is bright and cheery in a masculine way....
My youngest was determine to sleep here. He even crawled under the blanket and said "ni, ni". He is just too blasted cute!
I managed to find the curtains a Walmart. They were perfect and you can even flip them end for end.
We had the blue paint left over from Josh's room so I was excited when the two matched so nicely. Of course navy is not a hard color to match.

I can finally hang his pallet coat hooks up too. The door will still hit the hooks but not as bad and I think I can find a stopper to fix that.
His closet has two doors. One is at the base of the stairs. We had to leave this one so that furniture could be moved down the stairs. The two walls are weight bearing walls so we couldn't change them. At least the builder thought to put the door at the base of the stairs. I don't know why they didn't leave it open more but oh well.
His room is a bit small. We are also short one dresser so we decided to just build shelving in his closet to accommodate both problems. His closet is rather large anyway. I found the square bins on clearance at Home Depot. They know me oh, so well now. lol! So now he will have shelves for toys and clothes. His bed is a captains bed and does have drawers in the bottom so that will help too.

I love it when a plan comes together. Keegan is thrilled. Although I think his baby brother is gonna give him a run for his money, he was all set to go to sleep. Tucked in for the night and everything! I will post more pictures when I get his wall decor up. I am loving it. What do you think?
And since there are so few BOYS room ideas out there...I'm sharing this with DIY Show Off.
