Before I get into the room reveal, I would like to introduce you to the occupants of this space. Meet Bennett and Grady (B and G) … the most adorable identical twin boys in the entire world.
B and G are super excited about their new big boy room.
Especially the new bunk beds, for obvious reasons.
When the time came for the boys to graduate from toddler beds into big boy beds, their parents, Sarah and EJ, wanted to take the opportunity to redesign the room. I had the honor of creating a design plan for B and G's new "Vintage Surfer Boy" bedroom.
Sarah and EJ executed the plan, flawlessly.
Here is what the room looked like before…
Actually during, these guys were so eager to get started, I didn't get a before shot in time!
Here is the design board from their design plan...
And here is the room now...
Many of the projects in this space were tackled DIY style by the homeowners.
Including the DIY Green Dresser Makeover (you can read about here), character rich board and batten wall treatment, built-in toy storage niche...
and an adroable DIY orange lamp with a jute trimmed shade.
The bunk bed was a Craigslist find, it's almost identical to the Potterybarn bed shown in the inspiration board.
The bedding (Potterybarn Kids) was our inspiration for the new room's color palette.
Ocean inspired art from Homegoods, cool vintage finds, and the boys' everyday toys/books were used to accessorize the space.
Sarah found an oak bookcase at the Salvation Army and gave it the same paint treatment as the dresser.
You can read all about the technique, here.
A lot of blood, sweat, tears and love went in to creating this fun, vibrant, space for these two adorable boys.
Thank you, Sarah and EJ, for giving me the opportunity to design this space and for letting me show off your amazing DIY skills!
