Okay so kid one's bedroom needs a makeover - STAT! The other day while putting clothes away it dawned on me...our little man still has his dresser from his first "big boy room" like 10 years ago. And since he's almost 13, it's definitely time for a stylish tween bedroom, that can still grow with him into his teenage years.
So I immediately thought of Ikea and their Hemnes furniture collection. I've always loved it's clean lines and at just $299 for the 8 drawer model - how unbelievably affordable it is.
Here's the old dresser below to the right. Off to the Restore it went for hopefully another sweet little boy to use. Remember that with all Ikea furniture...you have to haul it home in a box and assemble the furniture yourself. This obviously is why their prices are so insanely low. So we put kid one to work! Okay Dad helped too ;)
Ahhh, much better! Now it's starting to look like a teenager lives here! This room is far from finished though...we still need to hang a mirror and curtains. I chipped a photo below and now I've got a fun color scheme to work with. Love Chip It!! If you haven't tried Chip It...go here.
Hope to get this room finished before Summer's end. Of course I'll keep you posted.
