Blank Slate boy’s bedroom

DIY | French Country Modern

Guess What?  It’s time to decorate my son’s room.  Some of my avid followers remember when I took on my master bathroom (in my last house) as part of the One Room Challenge series.  It was a whole lotta work and a whole lotta fun. This time, I’ve decided to take on my blank slate boy’s bedroom and transform it into the bedroom of his dreams!

I hope you’ll follow along this design journey over the next 6 weeks.  I have big plans for his bedroom and a lot of ambitious projects in the works. I will be doing everything myself! Wanna see what it looks like now?

As I said before, it’s basically a blank slate.  There are many rooms in our new home that I’ve intentionally left blank.  I love doing hands on projects and tackling them systematically.  I guess it’s the artist in me, but I find it so much more satisfying to not only design a space, but to get my hands dirty in the process.

Current problems:

  • Terrible organization
  • Lacks any kind of cohesive design
  • Needs an actual bed frame & bedding
  • Needs a desk or creative corner to read
  • Just gotta make it look way better!

Design plan for this blank slate boy’s bedroom

Each week I will update my project list below.

  • Wall molding & paint
  • Install Stikwood over ceiling beams
  • Build his bed (I told you I had ambitious design plans)
  • Lighting
  • Large Furnishings
  • Reveal

The first project I plan to tackle is the wall molding & paint. Be sure to check back next week for a full tutorial, progress, and updated project list!  Also dont forget to check out all the other talented bloggers participating in this fun event.  I am certain there will be loads of inspiration.  Click HERE to see the other participating projects.
