Room Reveal! Fun Boys Bedroom Ideas and DIY’s

The boys’ bedroom is once again my favorite room in the house!

It’s time for the big reveal, guys! And I’m so excited to share it with you. The whole room is full of awesome DIY projects, affordable decor, and fun boys bedroom ideas. I’m loving it and so are my boy’s!

If you saw my original makeover plans for the boys bedroom, you might notice that the plans kind of changed along the way. Some new things were added, some were dropped. I think it’s always important to stay flexible during a makeover and keep asking yourself what still fits as you add new pieces to the room. Go with your gut and what you love!

Do you love Before and After Home Makeovers? Check out this blue, white, and grey kids bedroom full of pops of fun colors. I think it's a bit Modern Farmhouse, a bit traditional, and a bit Land of Nod.  #kidsbedroom #kidsroom #boysbedroom #bedroomideas
Check out this before and after! It was so drab after years of rushed bedroom changes as the boys grew. It was in serious need of an update!

I hope you find something to inspire your makeover. If you follow this blog, you know I DIY anything and everything I can. DIY either saves me lots of money (Yea!) or gives me the exact look I want. If I can’t find something in the stores that fits my rooms, I’ll build it. Like the boys’ DIY Upholstered Twin Headboards. The store bought headboards come in limited colors and fabrics. And many of them just felt cheap or boring. If you aren’t interested in building a headboard, this upholstered headboard from Target gets great reviews and comes in lots of fun colors too!

Building my own headboards meant I could go for custom paint and fabric to perfectly match the room and our tastes. But, don’t worry, you can buy a lot of the items in this room too. So, if you’re not a big fan of DIY, I can help you too.  Let’s get to it! 🙂

Don’t forget to Pin this Makeover to save it for later!

Awesome DIY for Kids Rooms & Fun Boys Bedroom Ideas

It's time for the boys bedroom makeover reveal, guys! And I'm so excited to share it with you. The whole room is full of awesome DIY projects, affordable decor, and fun boys bedroom ideas. I'm loving it and so are my boy's! This is a blue, white, and grey bedroom full of pops of fun colors. I think it's a bit Modern Farmhouse, a bit traditional, and a bit Land of Nod. I designed this for my boys, but most of the ideas would work for all kids, boys and girls. #kidsbedroom #kidsroom #boysbedroom
I am so happy I went with this style of board and batten. It’s thin lattice boards spaced about 5 inches apart. I also installed an extra chunky crown moulding in this room. This accent wall color is Behr’s Polished Pearl Latex in Eggshell sheen. It’s the color I use for all of the trim in our house. You can see the full DIY for this board and batten and find out why I went for photo canvases over the bed too!

The blue walls are from the Magnolia Homes collection by Kilz. It’s Vibrant Horizon with an Eggshell finish. I found that map of the US at a Home Goods a few years ago. I made the 5 orange and blue ‘DREAM” canvases above it with supplies I found at Hobby Lobby. You can find the DIY for those fun chunky, wood curtain rods here too. The curtains are the blue Spacedye Curtain Panel from Target. I love the look and feel of them. I’ve been patiently waiting for them to restock the grey version so I can put them in my room!

My oldest can’t resist the chance to jump in front of a camera. Which makes life a bit more challenging for a blogger. 😉 I love this Blue Triangle Stitch Quilt I found at Target. It holds up to washing really well and it works perfectly with that fabric on the DIY Upholstered Twin Headboard. It’s Magnolia Homes Brighton Navy fabric I ordered from Amazon. You can see a list of my favorite Fabric by the Yard designs here, to help you plan your next upholstery project without even leaving the house.

My husband thought this was way too big, until he saw it in action. I love this 8′ long magnet and Lego board. The boys think it’s really fun too. That’s all a momma DIY’er can ask for. 🙂 I’ll share the DIY for this soon, so stay tuned.

I built this DIY PVC Pipe Tent a few months ago. It has a drop cloth cover and fun DIY Yarn Tassels. I love how it works under that green leaf wall canopy.

This room is just so cheerful and fun now. Don’t you think? I smile every time I see it! The Dark Blue Bed Set pops off the lighter blue and white walls. Those great photo canvases are my way of letting the boy’s show off a fun memory of theirs. And it reminds them of their favorite pet donkeys.

You can find my DIY for that fun Felt and Acrylic canvas art and the DIY for that lighted LED Clip Display Board in previous posts. AND, if you look closely, you’ll see that the outlet cover to the right of the tent has a built in nightlight. Now the kids can’t unplug and play with the nightlight. Nice! You can see how easy it is to install the SnapPower Guidelight Outlet Cover here.

If you look closely at the ceiling, you’ll see I strung fishing line across that corner in a few places. Then I hung stringed white stars to create a fun 3D star effect over that hanging green leaf wall canopy and the tent. It’s a bit of the outside, inside. The white vinyl stars on the wall behind the hanging stars helps give the whole corner a fuller look. The white vinyl moon is a favorite of my moon-obsessed 2-year old.

This, this wall turned out so much cooler than I had ever hoped. The white vinyl clouds and sun I found online with the vintage airplane vinyl look fun enough. But adding those easy to make DIY 3D Hot Air Balloons just makes it all so much more awesome. Can I do this in our Master too? 😉 The long board beneath that is a DIY Farmhouse Style Magnet and Lego board. I’ll share that DIY soon.

  11. I love this reveal, especially how it looks like every corner of the room is kind of its own zone. The bed looks restful (that shade of blue for the comforter looks perfect!), while the magnet and Lego board, the tent, and the art gallery are all really creative spaces. My son would love that Lego wall, by the way! It looks like a great bedroom, and I’ll bet your boys love it.

  12. This room is the perfect fun haven for little boys. I love all the touches, its wonderful. Although my munchkins are all grown I am pinning this in case another Mom gets inspired.

  13. Wow, someone is a lucky little guy. Fabulous job!
