Linda, This room is an absolute delight! Your son must be bursting with pride over his room and having a mom that is so very creative. Your comic strip art adds a very hip note to the room. My son wants to come live with you now. Your drapes are fabulous!! I made similar ones this past fall for my bedroom…and love them too.
I also have that same fabric that I reupholstered a piano bench with. We have such good taste. What a fun room for a teenager. The colors really make the room unique and I love the curtains! Very well put together—the colors, the textures.
I love the lampshade over the fan lights. Every little thing looks great. Thanks for sharing with my newbie party. Please add a visible link to along with the others. I really need to get this newbie party out there so other newbie bloggers have a chance to link up too. You did a freaking awesome fabulous job! I am totally in love with this entire bedroom. You did a terrific job. I have a 2o year son who recently redid his room.
I want to talk to him about letting me redo his curtains. I love the drop cloths. Wow, this looks awesome! You did an awesome job. I love the color combination and the way all the pieces came together. I LOVE the colors!
This turned out amazing. I would love it if you could link this up to our linky party going on right now. Love, Love, Love this!!!! Thanks for linking to Take-A-Look Tuesday — you were featured today!
Love the colors and patterns! Thank you for joining me at Home Sweet Home! This room is fabulous! Love the paint colors and that you put a chalkboard around the room. You are so done…you thought of every design detail…. Did you buy drop cloths or drop cloth fabric?
That room looks fabulous!!! I LOVE the colors you chose! I currently have a link party going and would love it if you shared this and anything else you would like!! Just to let you know I featured you on homework today! Pop by for a featured button. I love that you used copies of the Archie comics — they were my favorite as a kid.
I still have them all — I just might have to do something like this. I also love the band of chalkboard paint you did — genius! The room turned out great! So super, super, cool…. You know what I mean! I did just ASCP him a desk in Barcelona Orange and with your room as inspiration, I can see incorporating many elements wall colors, curtains — love!
Thank you so much! Love the shade of orange you used too!! You did an magazine worthy makeover! Loved all the beautiful photos! Even the transfer on the pillow looks unique!! Judging by the number of comments, this room has been a hit in blogland! I absolutely love it. Orange is my all-time favorite color and I think you did a great job of mixing it with other colors to make it really masculine. This room is quite the makeover! Huge props to you for pulling this off: This came out so great!!!
Your son is lucky to have such a patient and thoughtful mom to put so much time and effort into his room! It turned out amazing! What an awesome job! I hope he apprciates all that you did! Does he like hockey… I saw the colors and thought Flyers we are huge Flyers fans! Linda, I love, love, love this room! I had been thinking of just updating a lot of what we have, but I now want to start over after seeing all that you have done!
You did fabulous job! Could you tell me the measurements from the ceilng down on each color? Thinking a deep red, the black and white beadboard or paint — not sure yet!
Feel free to email me directly with any additional questions: This is such a great project! What are your paint colors? I would love to try with the gray and black and another color for my son. This is such a great room! Cracking up on the Bed Part- Game.. Jaw dropping on floor, looking around in complete and utter awe… this room is sooooo amazing! The vibrant colours, interest, details… Sam is one incredibly lucky young man! Mom, you deserve to rest! Especially the ceiling fan and the bottle cap drawer pulls.
So how are they working? Have a great day!! I saw on your curtain post about your sister loosing her battle with cancer. Its funny how things like home projects bring back grief…When I sewed a birthday outfit for my daughter it very much reminded me of crafting with my aunt who died 6 years ago with Wegners.
We are running a Before and After Link party to support Habitat for Humanity, with a chance to be featured on other big blogs and win gift cards.
Would love if you entered! I was trying to make them unique though the colors my boys picked make the rooms quite noticable. One room is now purple with a few verticle orange stripes and the other is 3 walls of purple and one a vivid green. Must say I like them all, but I wanted this one to have its own personality. I plugged the term orange and gray bedroom into Yahoo, and yours was the one that caught my eye.
Thank you for the inspiration. As the gray was going on walls I was trying to decide where else I could use that color. Anxious to get the chair rail in place, lay the new flooring, and start putting everything back together.
I think I may even steal some of your great decorating ideas, as knowing what to hang on the walls has never really been my forte. May just have to hang around with you some more and model my whole house after yours! Molly, thanks for the morning laugh! Seriously, that me from above no not God just killed me …. BK — Linda you inspired me. Just like you, i was not too crazy about painting the whole room orange.
Thank you very much for sharing All info. I love the way you used orange with the black without it looking halloweeny! I showed him this picture and he loved the bed linens immediately — do you happen to remember where you got the black and white comforter set?
Thank you in advance and for the wonderful pictures and inspiration! Me again, after I typed the above note, I realized you posted the maker of the bedding…thank you! Just wanted to say keep up the great job! And thank you for the sample photos. They really helped show my son what his room would look like. Again, thanks for sharing. I have to tell u i pinned this bedroom and it is always getting repinned!
I think its the number one repin on my PINtrest. You should be very proud. I love this room!! But seeing this… I will say yes! You have inspired me to do redo our sons room!! What a wonderfully teen boy room. I will be sharing it on my Fb page with a link to this page, if that is okay with you.
You can find it on https: Nice to know how to use fan to a room!! I really recommend other to read this article. Keep up the good work. We love the colors for this room and we love your writing style.
Here you go Linda…I hope you like it! Thank you so much for your very kind words in the post! Only, thing — my name is Linda! As this example shows, chalkboard paint, even without a bunch of chalk scribbles and drawings on […].
With a capital d. Or is it D? Comments and it looks fabulous!!!! Super fun and cute! I love the pop of colors and the crisp and clean design. With lots of blog love, Kristin theocdlifestyle. It turned out amazingly well! LOVE the curtains, the comic book art, the 3 paint colors! Especially loving the shelves that took 15 years to hang! What your computer crashed twice?? Love the bright orange and the personal artwork! Start to finish, top to bottom, you are the mom of the year.
Stars, Sports and the Deep Blue Sea!
