Teen Bedroom Makeover on a Budget!

by Marina Ingrit

I love reveal day! After working so hard on a room makeover, it is so fun to finally be able to share it with you. I think this room has more DIY projects in it than any of my other rooms. At least that is how it felt 🙂 I had so much fun designing and executing this room makeover for my nephew. He is an excellent baseball player and loves all things sports so we took that as our jumping off point. As always, I tried hard to keep this an inexpensive project (which is why so many things were DIYed). Here it is! A teen bedroom makeover on a budget!

I love a blank slate and this is exactly what the room started out as.



You might recognize the bed. It is the same type as the one in my niece’s room that I made over. They were part of a bunk bed set. Since there was only one, and we needed two beds in the space, we decided to start from scratch.



Last month I shared how I painted the walls a nice grayish blue color. They have such a large window that faces south east so I felt like I could go a little darker with the walls.




I’ll be sharing even more details, tutorials, and a source list later this week but today is the REVEAL!



My nephew was using an old broken dresser as a desk. Even though there is a respectable 54″ from the end of the bed to the closet, I decided to build a fold down desk to save some space. He didn’t have and shelves to display trophies or collectables so I made some to go above.



His older brother is in college and stays at home some of the time so we needed to keep the second bed in the room.



Since his older brother was also a ball player, we printed off some 16×20 prints of each of them playing to hang over the beds.



Since they were using a tote and a step stool as their side tables, I knew I needed to find them a better replacement. I couldn’t find two that were similar enough and within our budget so I built two very simple tables with drawers. Part of being able to keep your room clean as a kid is having a place where you can shove all the miscellaneous things quickly. My kids each have a drawer dedicated as their “treasure” drawer (that’s a nicer way of saying junk drawer). Headphones, cords, gum, baseball cards, etc will all fit nicely in these two deep drawers.



After I built them, I pulled out my trusty Finish Max Super to get them painted! Luckily I still have an unfinished corner in my basement to work since it is so cold still in Utah. I painted one coat on each table in less than 3 minutes!




This teen bedroom makeover on a budget was so fun to pull off! My favorite part of any room makeover is seeing how happy the person is with their new space. My nephew is thrilled and has already added his own touches to the room like LED lights and action figures to the the shelves. I love it! Of course I take styled shots for the blog, but it makes my heart happy when people make it their own when I am gone.
