Will and Natalie’s New Bedrooms

I wanted to put an exclamation point on that title but I do in fact enjoy having human friends.

We gave the kids much needed bedroom upgrades! At last. It was so time. They’d been sleeping in beds the size of bobby pins. It was one of those ordeals where we (by we I mean me) went through the whole vibe in each room with a fine-tooth comb and gave them proper fourth grader rooms. We painted, got new light fixtures, new fun things for the walls, new bedding, new rugs, rearranged it all, gave it a new soul. And I have all the links for you, if you’re in the mood!

Of course you’re in the mood. I know you people.

We’ll start with Will’s room. And I’ll keep this short, I swear. (<–yeah right)

I just love their rooms. Depending on the time of day they get so much beautiful golden sunlight. Hanging plants in the corner windows add the perfect natural touch. Any window you see, add a plant! That’s my motto. I think.

Nothing is perfect, and it’ll evolve over time, but this is where we for now. Remember that floor lamp I found at an estate sale forever ago? I love it in here. Aaron built the wall boxes, and of course I dig the simple stylish look for storage and little trinket things. I’ll save all the links and put them in one spot, to keep this easy!

Getting new beds has been on the to-do list for the kids forever. So I partnered with Casper Beds for the new mattresses, and we’re absolutely in love. They’re called The Casper, and I do have a reel on them, and I’ll include the link again at the end of Will’s section. See how organized I am?

Don’t answer that.

The comforter is Ikea from a few years ago (couldn’t even tell you what it’s called), and the blankets on top are all thrifted. Except the blue one! It was an Amazon purchase years ago and I just checked and it’s no longer available. Darn it. We tried.

Cozy well lit corners are life.

The bookshelf is a thrift find. We painted it white and added those brass feet at the bottom. Spent like $25 total on it.

Remember Garbage Pail Kids? They were so gross. My kids love them. Of course they do.

The rug! It’s from Loloi. Here’s the link. I love the rich colors for Will’s room.

A little up-close at all of Will’s doo dads.

Simple but sweet. I’m just in love with how it turned out.

Alright, here are the links for his room!

The rug.

The desk.

The sheets.

The Casper mattress.

The bed frame.

The bedside table.

The curtains.

The Simpsons poster.

The Cupheads poster.

What did I miss in this room? Holler and I’ll grab you a link if I can! (his overhead light – Aaron made that about ten years ago! Lit-rally a piece of plastic. Ha! oh.)

Okay, onto Nat’s room! It was so much fun to decorate. We went a touch softer with pinks, purples and corals. Let’s get in it.

Another Loloi rug for her room! This one is the Tangerine Mist. Here’s a reel on it!

I left it slightly messy because that’s just how it is. Aaron thrifted this bookshelf and hung it on the wall to give a lot of space under it. I dig it!

The chest of drawers is an old Ikea find and I hate them. The drawers never close right and they make me stabby. I’m always on the hunt for a simple white wooden one at estate sales. Let me know if you find one! But like, for me. Not you.

The blue bench is a garage sale find, and the mirror is from a flea market! You know me.

Of course we have a little Taylor up in here. I took the scroll thingy off and just made it a poster. She just rounds it all out, if I say so myself.

Also don’t come at me for the beta fish. We’ve had him since Christmas! Happy little Romi. He’s all good.

The stuffies are ooooold. Grocery store finds, Ikea finds, some had lice so they weren’t in this photo. You know my life lately.

The butterflies I found at a flea market a few years ago. The lights are amazon! I love the delicate touch it adds.

I hung up the same curtains in her closet to create a dramatic theater look. Which coincidentally matches the attitude of the resident of this room.

The overhead light is Amazon. I LOVE IT.

This little “end table” is a thrift find. Painted of course. You know how we do.

Anyone else Babysitters Club obsessed? That’s all she talks about. We’ll survive it.

Okay, her links in one place!

The rug.

The desk.

The curtains.

Tay Tay.

The twinkle curtain lights.

The overhead.

The floral sheets.

The bed frame.

The Casper mattress.

And that’s a bedroom wrap! Thanks for being there for me during this bedroom tour that probably felt like 17 years.

Let me know what I missed!

    So nice and not at all fussy. I’d hang out in there if it were mine 😀. Now how about a source for that overhead light in Wills room. Fabulous looking light for my dining room maybe. Thanks for sharing the things you do and making me smile.

      Ahhhhh thank you for this sweet comment! Aaron actually made the light fixture a million years ago. It's neat huh?

    Hi! Love how the rooms turned out! Can you re-link the twinkle lights from Natalie’s room? The current link brings me to the Taylor poster. Thanks!

      Ahhhh thank you for the heads up! The new link is in place.

    Both rooms look great, what is the guitar on the wall, it has a cord, is it a light? And where did it come from?
    • Bev Weidner June 8, 2023 at 1:02 pm #
      Thank you! It's a ukulele with twine as the guitar strap. :)

    Love how clean and fresh they look with the white walls and white/wood furnishings but also has so much personality injected. It doesn't look sterile or like a kid doesn't actually inhabit the space. Out of curiosity though- if your kid wanted to paint the walls a bright color how would you deal with that? ;)
    • Bev Weidner June 8, 2023 at 1:04 pm #
      Ahhhh thanks! Luckily both kids are drawn to serene surroundings. If they WERE to ask for bright colors on the walls, they'd get the privilege of seeing me in a mental hospital. :)

    Super nice rooms! Thanks for sharing!

    Ahhh I love these rooms so much. I mean for myself even, never mind for my kids. Fun fact I have almost 10 year old twins, also b/g so this resonates with me strongly. I love how you let them have their *stuff* out but why does it look tacky & junky when my kids display theirs? hmmmmm. The real question though! Can you share your paint color?

    I like this result. Comfort is created precisely with the help of such details. By ordering such attributes, you are focusing on a solid and unique design for the living room, bedroom, hall and other rooms. Posters will be the perfect decoration for any room, and in the SoPosters online store you can find an option for every taste
