Tween Bedroom Makeover – ORC | Week 4

Tween Bedroom Makeover

One Room Challenge – Week 2

I’m SO excited to be part of the One Room Challenge again.  A huge thanks to Linda of Calling It Home for organizing this bi-annual design challenge. The One Room Challenge is where design|bloggers around the world transform one space in their homes over 6 weeks.  This is my forth time taking on the challenge.  The first time I redesigned our entryway.  The second time was our master bedroom including adding on a master en-suite and the third time was our family room.

We moved into a newer home in the spring of  last year.  We had our youngest room set up as a bedroom but he never slept in it.  The room wasn’t appealing enough so it became my craft room.  But its time he had his own room again so his room is getting the make over this time around on the One Room Challenge.

My Room’s Goal:

So the goal is for our son to have the coolest bedroom on the street.  I’m jumping in a week late but better late than never.  We have our work cut out for us!!!

Here’s how the room currently looks:

It’s very bland, the carpet is stained because I’ve been using the room as my workshop.

My Inspiration Tween Room:

Our son loves skate boards, scooters and almost anything that moves beneath his feet so having a skateboard theme will create an inviting hangout where the neighborhood boys will love to come to.

My Inspiration Piece

Graffiti wall mural from Wayfair

Sometimes when designing a room from scratch it can be overwhelming to know where to start. Finding an inspiration piece, be it artwork, a piece of furniture or throw pillows, can be your starting point.  In my case, this creative and fun graffiti wall mural definitely was my bouncing off piece.  The colors, design theme, and all accessory & accent pieces stem from this wall mural.

The cool graffiti wall mural paper is the starting point to all the other items in this skate park boy’s room.

 My color scheme:

These colors below will be used for the walls, bedding and furniture.


It’s going to be alot of fun creating a skateboard room.  It’s a surprise for our son. He knows he’s getting a room makeover but doesn’t know what it’s going to look like.  I can’t wait to see his face at the big reveal!




Please check back next week and see the progress to date!

Add Value to Your Home with Debi CollinsonI’m Debi Collinson. Designer. Stager. Real Estate Investor. In 2006, at the request of a realtor, I staged my very first home. Staging houses was just starting to become popular. I was very nervous staging my first house, but the sellers liked their newly redesigned home so much that they turned down an offer for full asking price. I went back to design school and have never looked back. Since 2006, I have been staging & styling spaces to make them look like they belong in a magazine page, and buying “fixer uppers” to fix up & either sell for a healthy profit or to rent them out. I’m currently living in my 8th “fixer upper.” Sign up to receive my e-mails of how to make your home stunning, how to sell your house for top dollar AND how to become financially independent one fixer upper at a time!
