Colorful and Charming Teen Bedroom

This is my sister Sophie’s room. Sophie is in 8th grade now and a few months ago her room felt to young for her. Once upon a time this was a kid garden room but is now a perfect spot for her and her teenage friends to hang out.

I painted this cute desk for her and the knobs were found at Hobby Lobby.

The adorable 4 foot chalkboard I also made for her using some MDF and chalkboard paint.

(If you are in the AZ area I do custom make the chalkboards and sell them, if you are interested email me.

The darling chair is another DIY project.


The rug was found at Rugs USA


 Here is a better view of the entire room.

The bedding is from Pottery Barn Kids along with the dainty canvas pictures of the birds.

Sweet Dreams was made by my Nana and will forever be cherished.

A few of the pillows are from the Nordstrom Home Department. The large one in the back was homemade and the polka dot one with the multi colored flowers is also homemade.

The lamp shade was a normal shade but then strip of the fabric. The mirror was a find from Hobby Lobby.


I love this chair. I wish I had a before picture. This 2 person chair had a dark brown fabric and my mom had it redone in this perfect grey linen and then tufted with the mis match of buttons I love it so much! So So much better.DSC_0024 The chandelier was also DIY, before the colors were pastels and dingy but after a little hand painting the colors now work perfectly in the space. The hooks are used to hang all of her necklaces. And a little tray to put a few odds and ends.


This room makeover is now age appropriate even though a few of the things were used from her old room.

Adding brighter and more colorful colors in the room helped this room go from kid room with all the pastel colors to fun and an inviting teenage hangout.

Look around your house see what needs a little facelift with a little color.
