My sister-in-law, Kateri, just turned 16 and has been wanting to redo her room for almost a year. This spring, I helped her paint and redecorate her room so it is more sophisticated for a teenager. This teenage girls bedroom makeover is really neutral and you could draw inspiration from it for any bedroom in your home. The space started out as a bright blue color from when Kateri was a little girl.
Her furniture arrangement was also a little crowded into one corner.
The last wall of the room has the door to her closet and a vanity along the wall.
First, we got to work painting. I mixed up a dark gray for a feature wall and then we used light silver for the other three walls. The paint I got all for free at our local household hazardous waste facility.
Toning down that bright blue really made a difference. The room felt much calmer and restful after the paint when on.
Next we hung these shelves above her bed. The items on the shelves that are the coral color were painted by us to match the new bedspread she bought. Kateri cut the DREAM sign out of wood in shop class at school.
The shelves were hung centered on the dark gray feature wall and just above the bed.
We arranged the bed in the center of the feature wall so that it is the focal point and she can get out of bed on either side. Her end table is next to it for drinks and the alarm clock. Along the other wall we moved the vanity.
This is what you see when you walk into the room.
This teenage girls bedroom makeover was really inexpensive; the only thing that was purchased were the shelves and bedding.
Last week I shared the tutorial for these easy to make pallet wood arrows that I gave Kateri. Now with her new room design, they are hung on the empty wall by her closet.
I did add a few touches to stage Kateri’s room, like the faux fur rug on her simple folding chair. That vanity needed a little something luxurious.
My efforts were felt throughout the room and I hope Kateri really loves the end result.
