Our teenage son, Taylor, will be back home from my parents’ tomorrow and I can’t wait to see him! He starts his senior year of high school in four days…hard to fathom for me. In my last post, I showed you the mood board and inspiration links for his bedroom. After few minor road blocks along the way,
I’m ready for the reveal.
Taylor’s room is only 10×10. It also has to serve as a guest room, so the pop-up trundle underneath turns his single bed to a king. This bed frame was part of a bunk bed in its former life. It had a cheap metal frame that I covered in bead board. The colors I used in his room are pulled from his quilt and shams
: a smokey blue, gray, navy, and khaki.
I made this pendant light that hangs in his closet/office. I had planned on buying the one in the moodboard, but I was able to find the parts and make it much cheaper. Tutorial on the light is here!
The window and closet curtain rods are made from galvanized plumbing parts. Tutorial is here!
But, it is all well worth it! I love how it turned out! I just hope Taylor likes his room as much as I do when he sees it tomorrow. And he better appreciate all of his mother’s hard work!
