It’s been a couple of years since we’ve shared my sons’ bedroom. They have a love/hate with sharing their bedroom since they are polar opposites. My older son is fiesty like his mama with a short temper…also like his mama. Little bro is sweet and passive but the messiest kiddo you’ve ever met. My older is a neat freak, wakes up early, is always on time and loves to follow the rules. The younger fella, he just smiles and moves like a sloth. I decided I needed to make this small room as organized as I possibly could to keep the peace in this shared boys room. The solution? Beds with drawers and a closet makeover (coming soon). We also added our favorite zipper bedding for the fastest way to make your bed. NO.MORE.FIGHTS! Yaaaaaaay!
We are in love with these outdoor lights. We used them in my laundry room makeover by adding a lamp kit to it. We did the same by adding a lamp kit but instead of having to unplug it like my laundry room version, we found one you can turn on and off in the actual cord. So convienent for the boys.
Several years ago for one of our birthdays, Kristi and I spent the day thifting. I scored this old ammo trunk for $30 with big plans but alas, it sat outside since then. I finally drug it into the boys room as a nightstand. Right now they don’t use it for storage since they don’t need it but it’s always there just in case.
I found these vintage industrial beds at Living Spaces (not sponsored!). I normally don’t shop big box stores for furniture but the price was right. The boys utilize the drawers for random stuff like sports uniforms and church related items. We did the whole building a bed route before and they held up for a couple of years but boys are BOYS and they eventually loosened to the point where one kid was on his mattress on the floor so we gave up and bought some beds…
I love that they’re real wood and have the metal details to keep the vintage industrial feel.
I searched over and over for boys wall decor ideas and loved the grouping of this boy’s room. I took a couple shots of my kids doing two of their favorite things: riding their pro scooters and playing lacrosse. I typed up cool story bro and had it all printed at Costco then put them in a barnwood frame from Hobby Lobby. Easy.
A new fan and flooring and this room is a lot more mature since the last time you’ve seen it!
We made this little MAN CAVE sign from a scrap of wood. We’ll get it listed in the shop soon.
