Simple Home DIY Projects ~ Fun Decor Themes For Boys & Bedding Give Away

After purchasing our new home, with literally every room needing updating and remodeling, this Mom initially had difficulty in deciding which pressing project to tackle first. Despite our best intentions and careful planning to complete our physical move in the early part of the children's summer break from school, we found ourselves taking residence merely two short weeks before the first day of the new school year.

With helping the children to adjust to our new home and settle in before the start of school, it was quickly decided to tackle the kids' rooms quickly before completely moving in.  With the Diva already into her teen years and an eight year old son, the existing nursery styling of the existing decor simply would not do.

Decor Tip
Prior to painting any room, take time to fully prepare the walls by patching any existing fixture holes from wall hanging, window treatments and shelving.  Lightly sand all wall areas to be painted to ensure your work will look fresh and smooth.  

My son had an easy time in selecting the theme for his room.  A fan of all things aquatic, he quickly chose an attractive marine blue color to paint his walls.  After a modest amount of effort in removing the exiting wallpaper border and sanding to prepare the walls, we were quickly able to convert his room to a nautical theme and completed the look by adding complimentary custom children's bedding.

Adding frame prints of marine animals, matching window treatments and interesting nautical decor elements we had picked up from combing antique stores along the coast transformed his room into a relaxing and personalized haven.

Decor Tip 
Family excursions and vacations are excellent times to pick up special decor items for your home that will lend a custom and unique look to your home.  Exploring local artist's fairs and antique shops can be an excellent way to find special items that hold precious family memories and add just the right touch to your space.

As he moves from a boy into a pre-teen, we can easily update his room with simple, affordable touches.  Adding a splash of color by painting trim or closet doors, a change of window treatments or the addition of a teen bedding set can quickly transform a room without causing chaos with your family's budget.

We have two boys and they share a room. We have it decorated in a red, white and blue theme. It's good for our younger son and our teen son.
Thanks so much.

I have four boys. Their rooms have been decorated in themes that suited their interests at specific times and changed every couple of years, when they outgrew the last theme. The ones that come to mind quickly are Thomas the Tank Engine, Pokemon, Godzilla, Power Rangers. My youngest boys are the only ones still living at home (two oldest are grown and gone.) One has got a thing for Angry Birds, so we have done it up with curtains, bed sheets and spread and his toys all to match. The youngest loves anything Phineas and Ferb, so his room is done that way, curtains, bedding and toys for decoration and playing. I have to confess that, if it was my room, the Angry Bird theme would keep me awake... So many of those cranky avians scattered around with those big eyes staring at me would creep me out, but my son likes it!
