Tween Bedroom Makeover | Room Tour | Budget Friendly

Wednesday, July 1, 2020


Our family recently moved into a three bedroom home, which means the kids get to have their own room! Well, sort off - at least Aaliyah, 11, who is the oldest gets to have her own room and the boys share a room. 

The crazy thing about this move is that we moved during the Covid-19 pandemic in the middle of March as stores were closing and people were rushing to the grocery stores. We moved back to our home state of NJ, one of the hardest hit states, which for us meant that stores were closed for months and we couldn't do much to our new home (as far as decorating).

Since we knew the kids were going to be in separate rooms and the second floor rooms in our new bungalow would be too small for bunk bed, we did away with the bunk-bed in Pittsburgh before we came back to NJ. We had no idea stores would be closed for as long as they were, if so we probably would have planned better so the kids mattresses didn't end up on the floor.

The first room on my list to give a makeover to was Aaliyah's room. Aaliyah is going into the 6th grade and is officially "too old" for the color pink and anything with unicorns. Aaliyah's wish list for this room was plants and pictures. That's literally all she asked for. Here is the before:

 


Here were a few goals during this makeover:

1. Get a bedframe
2. Desk
3. Re-do dresser
4. Decorate

THE MAKEOVER


Originally I had planned on getting the kids bed frames at Ikea but because they stayed closed for so long and shipping from Ikea is so expensive, we opted for Wayfair instead.

Since we moved during quarantine, the kids began online learning so I wanted Aaliyah to have her own space to sit and be able to do her work.. comfortably. I decided to give my vanity to Aaliyah so she could use as a desk for her online classes and also use it as a dressing table.

Aaliyah has a dresser that had been waiting for me to paint since 2013 lol so I finally got this done! It got a fresh coat of paint, new knobs, and new pulls. What a difference!

The Final Look

Aaliyah is so happy with how it turned out! It came out so cute. My favorite part is the selfie setup and the lights. What do you think?
