Boys Room Before and After

So about a little over a year ago we moved into our house.  I wanted to go thru room by room and redo them or slap some paint up on the walls.  I started with my older son's room first, sorry no pictures.  Life went on and my middle son, kept asking "mommy when are you going to do my room" I kept saying your's is next.......well now a year later and his finally got finished! YAY!! O, keep in mind I did not pick out the paint! Big mistake letting your 4 yr old pick out paint!

I started with a blank slate

yay, for white walls


Check out the dresser, now look at the next picture

new dresser

Walls were painted using Behr Ultra Premium Eggshell paint. Color is Disney Alien Green and Laser Beam.  I added the wainscotting so the green wouldn't be!  It helped.  I painted the green stripe all the way around the room to break up the yellow a bit. I redid the dresser and you can read about it here. Added his name and some nic nac's, sports stuff and of course you can't forget his transformer curtains and blanket!  I'll add some shelves for books and stuff, but I really wanted to get this done for him since he'd been asking for awhile now.  If you all could see his face when I did the big reveal.....he was out of town with brother and daddy for the weekend.......his face was priceless!


  1. It's bright but perfect for a young boy! Really cute!

  2. the dresser looks great and I love the stripe on the walls! Come and share this with WorkShop Wednesday. It would make a nice addition to the party!

  3. So cute that your son was that excited! I like the wainscotting to tone it down a little. Stopping by from Weekend Wander
