Boys Teen Bedroom – Reveal

| |

It’s here… the Boys Teen Bedroom Reveal.

Yes, I know… I am like a slow little turtle crawling uphill. 

I started my son’s teen bedroom last year.

It’s been done for awhile and I have neglected to share the final reveal with you.  

This room truly was a labor of love –

I wanted this room to be a work of art, all done by hand.

My son appreciates it, and knows that he has a room that is really special. 

He even asked me if I would re-create his room when we move. 

I told him I’d give it my best shot.

For the most part,

everything in this room is DIY.

The lamps are from Home Goods.

The wall of hooks make the room seem larger and the clock was easy to make.

The wall map is definitely a statement piece in the room,

and you’d never guess what is under that upholstered chair.

Now he has the perfect place to sit and do his homework.


Do you remember how it started?

Bunk Bed

Oh… that is so embarrassing!

Child's Room

Okay… that’s a little better,


I wanted it to look like this

That’s when drawing a floor plan came in handy,

and drawing elevations was a must to make sure my vision was down on paper.

This helped others see the vision too.

I decided on room colors,

and completed all of  the projects that went in the room…

It started with the two-toned desk.

then the wall of hooks,

a chair with a story to tell,

With a blink of an eye he will be out of the house,

but now he has a room he will remember forever!

  1. I too started my 13 yo daughters room makeover last year for and around her bday in August and its been a slow process trying to finish it up. One of the last remaining things was some sort of art/decor on the main wall above her bed. Saw your pictures and DING DING DING! I love the boards with encouraging phrases!! Now I can’t wait to get started.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. That’s great news Joy! I am so glad I could help! This is one of my favorite projects I did for his room too. He’s a sentimental guy, so it touched his heart a little too. I would love to see your final result.

  2. Such a terrific room, Angie! You just rocked every detail. I think the desk is my favorite or maybe that gorgeous chair. I will probably copy your extra long coat rack, though–love that!

  3. Beautifully designed room Angie.
    Just out of interest, what medium did you use to draw the wall elevation drawing?

    1. Hi Ranjit, Thank you! The wall elevation was drawn by hand – I know there are many computer programs for drawing elevations as well, I’m old school. Ha!
