It took me forever to finish this room. Well, it seems so!
After more than six months of hard work, I'm so happy to finally show you the end result.
The building part was finished in December, my son moved in immediately, but I kept on working on the decor.
It took me so long because some of the items I ordered, like the main lighting, took forever to arrive.
The other item that
didn't arrive was a roman shade for the window, but I just couldn't hold the reveal any longer.
So, let's get started! I'll give you links to all the projects tackled in this room at the end of this post.
Here is how the room looks while standing at the door. Yeah, the window is right across and it was a beautiful sunny day.
The carpet is one set of modular carpet tiles I already had. I don't think they sell this design any longer but you can find many others right HERE.
As I said in a previous post, my son loves his bed, it's comfy, warm and stylish. It's so nice to see him spending lots of time in his new room.
The letter M is such a big statement, that's an easy DIY project were a good stash of googly eyes came in handy.
The white brick wall treatment was achieved with paper, or wallpaper, except that, it's not wallpaper, is more like Contact paper that you can put and remove easily. Yes indeed, very easy. I bought it HERE (Affiliate link).
My son's favorite color is red, that's why you see that color sprinkled all around the room.
The decorative pillow sports the logo of his latest computer game obsession: Rocket League - another DIY project -.
I wanted to give the room that old vintage look but in a modern way. Some of the items on the shelves show that vintage, industrial look.
I found these big old bulbs and the Edison print above the bed at Sweet Clover.
The clocks came back to the shelves after the rusty paint treatment.
On the other side of the bed, the desk, with plenty of storage. I still need to make the inside of the drawers a bit pretty, most of them are still empty, hence the blank labels.
As you can see, he really likes Rocket League, the sign is another project he's loving!
The bookends were done with the piece of wood cut off the sliding door - Remember we had to trim the door to make it fit? Well, that extra piece came in handy here. The one on the right is holding the vintage rolling mechanism the door had. I was sad it came with only one. :(
This is the view when looking from the closet. Did I tell you this is a small room? It was hard to take full view pictures.
The lighting is such an important part in the design of a room. All the areas in this space are well lit!
The closet, the first project done in this room, is working really well. Here again, he has some empty drawers.
The small step stool can be pulled to the closet when he needs to reach the top shelves, he can also use it to put on his shoes or to hold stuff.
Finally, a vintage target, a gift from one of our friends to my son a couple years ago, adorns so well the sliding door.
That's pretty much all of it. But. I couldn't leave you without the before and after. This is how the room looked right before starting the work.
This is how the room looks decorated for Fall and with the owner enjoying it. ;)
