Tween Boy Bedroom Makeover

261 Views
The goal was to streamline and update this tween bedroom while maintaining all of his interests.
All on a very tight budget.
The room was previously two, and by busting out a wall to make it larger, (well, making the smaller one into a closet and storage area), the main bedroom remained a 9' by 11' space. Small, but it flowed better with the opening.
A mix of furniture against the walls held the 11 year old's clutter. He had and still does... a LOT of stuff! Everything needed sorting and organizing.

I rebuilt two outdated night stands into a chest of drawers and painted all pieces, mirror included, to make a wall of drawers match up. Making the room flow better.
