I’ve been at my sister’s house making over her children’s bedrooms for the entire month of March. If you haven’t seen it, click on my profit to see Bedroom #1 post which is my nephew’s bedroom.

This post is all about bedroom #2 which is my other nephew’s bedroom. This nephew is also 17 (the boys are twins); however, this is the master bedroom.
My sister had painted it purple...painted everything purple and painted everything semi-gloss. But I couldn’t wait to get in there.
I began by removing everything from the room.
I painted the ceiling white and continued the white about 2” down onto the walls.
I removed his window casings and built farmhouse window casings which I painted white.

I also removed and replaced all of the baseboards and door casings. This was easier than trying to cover several coats of purple paint.
I spackled the many holes that were in the walls. Once the spackle was dry, I sanded the walls smooth. The walls had been patched years ago and were very lumpy.
Then I primed his walls using a flat white and painted his walls “Inspiring Hue” by Valspar. The room was getting brighter!
His bed was falling apart so I built him a new headboard. The post for that is coming soon.
I painted his closet doors and added moulding to them.

He has two closets in his room and one didn’t have doors so I gave him a study area complete with a new desk. I also outfitted it with a personalize cork board, storage, a new lamp and chair. I also updated an old mirror.

He is a very talented actor so I framed his playbills using floating frames.
He loves his new room! It’s cleaner and brighter.
And not purple anymore!

    I’ve read all your posts and you did a great job but I don’t see your posting for your page anywhere. What is the address? Thanks!

    The room looks more grown up - good job. The dresser must be part of a future project. It just takes some luan to cover the drawer panels to give it a more modern design.
