Boys bedroom mini makeover

My biggest boy (he’s 12 and a half) got a makeover in his bedroom this week. Here’s a video with me pulling it together (hospital corners please)!

And here’s the final result (for now!). I am always changing and fiddling with things… We’re doing very simple walls in this room. He doesn’t want too much fuss and I refuse to paint feature walls. On the reverse wall (which you can’t see) he has shelves with his TV, medals, trophies and his special things.







I put a little sneak preview on on Instagram and Facebook yesterday and you’re dying to know where I bought some of these goodies from…

  • Doona cover – Logan and Mason
  • Crosses Blanket – Adairs
  • Yay banner – Etsy
  • Hand on sideboard – Typo
  • Letter C – Typo
  • Skull cushion – Etsy
  • Name cushion – Hampsons Homewares
  • Geometric cushion – Spotlight
  • Grey sheet set – Spotlight
  • Cactus – Bunnings
  • DIY Cage light – tutorial and details here
  • DIY pallet bedhead
  • Orange chair – painted in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint (Barcelona Orange)
  • Light shade – DIY & fabric here
  • Antlers – gift

I must admit I am really loving his room. He’s been begging me for anything “orange” for months. It’s his favourite colour. Happy kid now 🙂

    Lol, love the video, if only we could do beds at that speed everyday….the colours are great!

  • Katie Clews

    looks brilliant, love it!

    What a fabulous bedroom, Katrina! I love the orange. We painted our dining room orange 8 years ago and people thought we were crazy! I still love it now. Can I ask if the bed is a double or king single? Thanks.

    That is an amazing boys bedroom! Looking for inspiration for my own son & happened to come across your blog. Love your house, just wondering if there is a copy of the floorplan on the blog, or did you design this house yourself?! Thanks.

    Nice job Katrina…my daughter loves Orange so this Logan and Maison doona would be a hit!

  • Libby Lazzo

    I bet loves it! Great job Katrina .

  • Maree

    I love this bedroom makeover! Loving the colour orange and the crosses blanket.
    Could you do a blog post on bedspreads for couples (mid 20’s)? I’m finding it hard to find a new doona cover that isn’t too feminine for my other half, yet still stylish. Would love a new doona for our dark, chunky wood bed in a room with navy carpet.
