Teen Room For My Son

This room is finally done.  I spent today making curtains from Walmart sheets and getting them hung so I could take photos of the finished room.  I almost ran out of light because I was shooting the pics about 30 minutes before sundown.  Nothing like getting done at the last minute. 

Here is the view as you enter the room.


There were a lot of changes in here.  We painted the walls from a light tan/cream color to gray.  I used Sherwinn Williams Silverplate.  It has more of a blue tint it than I expected, but it works in this room. 

It goes well with all the furniture I painted using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in graphite.  This paint made the furniture painting go really fast.  I used 2 cans of paint and have a little bit left.  I gave everything a coat of clear wax.  My favorite piece is the chest the was my  husband’s.  I shared about the redo here.



His new chair I talked about here was a perfect choice for him to kick back and watch tv or play video games.  The armoire helps hide it all when he isn’t using them.


I showed y’all my chalkboard closet doors redo here.


His headboard got painted and we found new bedding at Pottery Barn Teen.


I found the sheets and bed skirt at Walmart.  The light gray sheets match the walls almost exactly.

We replaced his white and gold ceiling fan and painted the wood curtain rods with my Krylon aluminum spray paint and black glaze.  They were an orangey oak color before you can see the fan and rods here.


His fence section Coca Cola sign I made for him is above the bed.  You can see how I made it here.  He asked for a Coca Cola room so I tried to accommodate him. 


The Route 66 sign was from Wuslu.  Route 66 just happens to run through our city. 



We already had some soda crates I found on Craiglist last year.  I used a couple on top of his armoire.


And another one by his industrial lamp I made him and talked about here along with a vintage fan I already had.


We removed the books on his shelf that were for young kids and put them in the attic.  He kept a few that we put on the bottom shelf and in some baskets I got from Target last year.


The red metal locker looking bin on the side of the shelf was from Target too.  I spray painted it red.  I will have to post about the things on his shelf.  He has a few special items displayed.

I thought I had more before photos of his room, but I don’t.  Here is one so you have an idea what it looked like before.

And now.


I am so glad to be done.  Now if I can talk myself into painting the trim in the family room…………
