Giving Matt a bedroom makeover has been a project we’ve had in the works for months. A top to bottom bedroom makeover can be a bit costly so we’ve been doing it in pieces, buying things on sale, hunting for deals and it’s about 90% complete.
Little man turned 11 this year so this was part of his birthday present and maybe even Christmas at the rate things are adding up. We started by enlisting the help of my dad, a professional painter and the biggest Green Bay Packers fan I know (next to our son). While we were on vacation he transformed the red and white walls in Packers green and gold. I was nervous about these colors going on the wall but he really did an AMAZING job with this room.
We added some Packers border to divide the two colors and after weeks of waiting finally got his new bedroom furniture which of course had to be covered in Packers bedding.
We’ve slowly been adding accessories and wall decor throughout the room including the Packers hamper and trash can I found. There’s a lot of posters and banners he’s still looking to add as well. Maybe even a real Green Bay Packers helmet at some point.
The only thing we have left to do is replace his bedroom carpet which is a hideous dark blue and falling apart. Boys are pretty rough on flooring. We’re still undecided about putting down laminate or maybe just a brown carpet. It really comes down to cost and it’s something we’re still researching.
Otherwise, this kid has the ultimate boy’s bedroom, at least for a stinky Packer fan. :P
