This week, I finally share Master 12’s Bedroom. I’ve shown a little of this over on Instagram, however now that the painter is finished, I can share it all 🙂 Makeovers are always a little easier when you have a blank canvas to start with. In this room we have the same grey walls, with white trim. Master 12 is a real boy, he loves all things sport, however he still needs his peaceful time, so we needed to reflect his personality whilst retaining somewhere to rest and sit quietly. I didn’t have too much of a brief from him, only that he wanted it to be cool. Again, we were working with a strict budget, as I have no doubt that he will want to change it in a reasonably short timeframe.
My ideas with this room all started with these skateboard shelves. Master 12 had pinned them to his Pinterest board, and from there the idea grew. Builder hubby, screwed brackets into the plasterboard using wallmates, he then screwed the skateboards onto the brackets. These will be used to hold his trophy collection when we finally unpack that box. The 3 Frisbees were cheapies from Kmart, and double up as something to play with and a wall decoration.
The second idea we worked with were these funky clipboards used to hold artwork on the wall. These came from Officeworks and were really inexpensive, the posters were taken from surfing and motocross magazines.
Every teenage boy needs a desk to study at, so while we were at Officeworks, we picked up the desk and chair. Having never had a desk in his room Master 12 was wrapped! The linen came from Cotton On, it’s reversable, so he can change it to suit his mood.
With the business end of the room taken care of, we needed somewhere he could relax, Master B loves to read and listen to music. Without the room for a reading chair, it was decided that we would put a beanbag in. Whilst in Kmart looking for the beanbag, we found these super funky ‘grass’ tiles, that we used in place of a rug, we added a bright cushion, also from Kmart and this is without a doubt his favourite part of his room.
Last but not least, we needed to house his ever growing collection of hats. We allocated 4 hooks on the wall to put his most used hats, they are just as he walks out his door, making it convient as well as decorative.
That’s it, my babies room. I love it, he loves it, and his mates are all jealous, so I think I’ve filled his brief of cool. What do you think?
If you are looking to fix a heavy structure into Plasterboard, we use Ramset Wallmates.
