Hi friends! How is your summer going? It’s my favorite season, I love the longer days and warmer nights. I have been spending a lot of the summer driving my kids around to their different activities. Normally a lot of car time is not my favorite part of the day but as of late I’m trying to savor every second. My oldest will be driving next summer so in a way I feel like this summer is an end of an era.
The fact that the kids are growing up leads me to my latest home project, a teen bonus room. We have a space upstairs that we set up as a playroom when we moved in to this house 9 years ago this week. It was a great space to store their toys and gave them plenty of room to play. Recently I purged and passed along their toys-boy did they have a lot of nerf guns and legos! Once the room became a clean slate I started the transformation into a teen bonus room. Here’s my vision for the room.
I’ve already started putting the room together. I’ve stuck to the design board with the exception of the rug. I ordered the one pictured in the design board but in person it was very yellow so I sent it back. I went with THIS RUG instead and love it. Below is everything I plan to use in this space
This is a sneak peak of how the room is coming together.
I plan on creating a piece of art for above the couch. It will be large, probably 40″ x 40″. Here is the inspiration piece, I just need to come up with the right phrase to use.
I’d love to have the art done in the next week few weeks. Once it’s done and the rest of the details are finished I will take lot’s of pictures and share it all with you.
Happy Summer Everyone-
