the big high schooler room update

I’ve been working on the kids’ rooms on-and-off all summer. As you may or may not know high school age kids spend lots of time in their room {yes I know…shocker}. We’ve always had a navy/Auburn(ish) theme going on in Connor’s space and it was time for a face lift. I picked up this sailboat painting at our local Home Goods on sale and C loved it so much he said he wanted his room to have more of the this color scheme. I was stoked because grown boy rooms can be challenging!

The bull horns is another TJ Maxx Home Goods find. I love the way it looks above the closet as you walk in.

These IKEA shelves are several years old and I really wanted to get rid of them because they’re a little banged up. But instead to save on my budget I cleared out all the clutter on top of them and found the new coordinating storage bins at Target. It actually came together a lot better than I expected, and I have to admit it is a functional piece for storage.

This is his desk area for homework. He asked for the white board, here’s to hoping it helps him stay on top of organization and homework!
Of course we couldn’t get rid of all that Auburn memorabilia! I really like the way this turned out at the foot of his bed.

The window treatments were probably the one item I splurged on, but I sure like the way they turned out.
It was a lot of fun to surpise him with the finished product!
