Teen Boy Bedroom

Can you please a teenage boy? Well, I did!  Yay, he likes it!  It was a surprise, so I was nervous but it was worth all the work.

We started with paint.  I did the focal wall (the one with the bed on it) two shades darker than the rest of the room. The focal wall is Dark Ash and the other walls are Dark Pewter.  Both from Behr Paint at Home Depot.

The bedding I ordered online from Woolrich.  It is really nice quality. I got a lot of the accessories at Hobby Lobby. Like the deer over the bed, some of the things on the shelves and the awesome switch plate covers. I also made the shelves, they were quite simple.  I will add a tutorial post on them later.

The curtains were "sew" simple.  Ha!  Just the check fabric with the added black band on the bottom.   Which was an accident... I made them too short and then had to add the black on the bottom.  But, I like how they turned out.  Sometimes accidents happen for a reason. Maybe?

My hubby and I made the headboard.  Well I designed it and told him how to build it.  He is amazing that way. I will post a tutorial a little later.

Then on this wall, I used some boxes I made a while ago for my daughters room but have since changed that room also.  I painted them with black spray paint.  The "explosive" signs are parts of an old box I found that held dynamite.  It has a date on it that says 1944.  I thought they would be fun and unique.

The lamp was also from Hobby Lobby.  It is so perfect for the room, I just had to have it.

It was a fun room to do and it was a success in my teenage boy's eyes so that's even better.
