Dawson’s Bedroom Reveal

OH MY WORD…… I’m so glad this room is finally done!

Sporty, Rustic & Industrial Boys Bedroom

It really is one of my favorite rooms that I’ve ever put together.  I love it because it fits my son perfectly.  It’s sporty, has his favorite colors and it also has some very industrial and rustic elements.

There were a lot of different projects that I did in this room so I’ll give you all the details on how I did them.

Dawson’s bedroom redo {part 2}

Phew!  What a crazy weekend!  I finished painting Dawson’s room, stained his furniture, hung shelves and organized all of his junk…. but there were a few set backs along the way and we had an unexpected visitor drop by  (I’ll post some pictures….SO GROSS!!)

After all the grey paint had dried, I started taping off the room for the orange stripe.  I measured up 5 ft from the floor and then did an 18″ stripe all the way around the room.   To get the cleanest line possible, I first painted along the edge of the tape in the same color as the wall.  This seals the edge and will give you the cleanest line.dawson room painting stripes

Dawson’s Bedroom Redo {Part 1}

So it’s been a long time coming to redo my son Dawson’s room. He’s 11 years old and he’s had the same bedding/decor since he was 2!

He’s always loved sports and while I think his old bedding was cute, it’s a little too juvenile for him now.

Here’s what his room looked like before:

Now I really want to try to give my kids rooms that they want…but it’s so hard to find that balance between what they want and what I WANT! If you know my family, you know that we are big University of Tennessee fans. We lived in Knoxville for 2 years and my husband and my son LOVE the Vols. Well, their color is orange. So guess what my son wanted? You guessed it…an orange room. Now, that’s a tough one for me. Orange is a pretty bold color and isn’t exactly my favorite.  But it’s what he wants and he also wants to have kind of a basketball theme so I guess it goes with that.

{spring mantle}

Spring has always been my favorite time of year!  Everything seems so fresh and new.  All the flowers start to come out and there’s color and beauty everywhere.  So what better way to celebrate spring than with a mantle to showcase it?

Recently I discovered a store called Passport Furnishings in St. George.  I was in love with this place the second I walked in…tons of cute home decor and furniture at great prices.  I got this lovely birdcage, cool distressed clock and bird tin.  If you live in Southern Utah you have to check this place out!
mantleI started by creating varying heights, textures and colors.  The height came from my candlesticks and picture frame.  I added texture with soft flowers, wood, metal, fabric and paper.  Then I used my favorite shades of spring to brighten it all up: light aqua, yellow, coral, pink and some touches of grey and white.

To add that little touch of whimsy I made this spring banner.  I found papers in different patterns and colors and used them to make the backgrounds and letters.  I used my Cricut machine to cut the letters out.  Then I glued my paper onto a rectangle of tea-dyed muslin and added a small flower to each pendant with a pearl brad center.  To hang them up I just used these cute little clothespins and attached them to some twine that I tied to my frame.  Super easy!

I really love how it all turned out!  It’s the main focal point of our family room and it brings that feeling of spring into our home.  Enjoy!mantlefullshot1

{Color Combination}

In our Master Bedroom my goal was to make a tranquil retreat with a good balance between masculine and feminine touches. Grey is definitely the dominating color with yellow & aqua adding those little pops of color.

When we designed our house I knew I wanted to have tall windows on either side of the bed.  I love the dramatic look it gives and how it frames the bed to help make it the focal point of the room.  The chevron print curtains are from GroopDealz.  My favorite thing in our room is the photo canvas above the bed. The size is 30×30 and I had it made from Costco.  I love how it brings out all the colors in the room and how it displays “us”.

The pallet sign was a really fun project to make and was pretty easy to do. All you need is an old pallet, a nail gun and some paint to make something unique and beautiful for your home

One of my lucky finds recently was this vintage looking suitcase I found from a local store called Tai Pan Trading. I’ve searched and searched for a suitcase like this and when I found this one in aqua, I knew I had to get it!  I used it to help display my temple print which proudly displays my faith (visit lds.org to learn more)

The pillows were a fun way to add some different textures, patterns and colors to the room. I got them all from Target. Bedding is “Ruffled Circles Quilt” from West Elm.
