One Room Challenge {ORC} Week #2: Modern Teen Hangout Bedroom

 
It's Week #2 of the ORC and this week, we did a whole lot of work!  Painting, refreshing a bookcase and generally just clearing out of the space.
If you are just hopping in now, welcome!  I have joined Linda from Calling it Home as a guest participant in the bi-annual One Room Challenge.  Last week, I showed you my inspiration board for the makeover I am going to attempt to accomplish in the short 6-week timeframe.
 
Playing catch-up?  Here is what you've missed.

Some of the issues that need to be addressed through the challenge:

√1.New Wall Treatment: walls need to be updated to anchor the space

√2.Get rid of the bunk beds and instead, create a “couch” with twin beds.

3.Find the perfect dresser for the space.

4.Reconfigure closet to create a desk space and storage.

5.New wall art and accessories for the room.

 

Week 2

After clearing out the space and dismantling the bunk beds, we decided to go with these platform beds which are low to the ground and can be tucked together into the corner to create a large “couch” area.

Another project was to paint over the baby blue color with a crisp white.

We removed the closet doors and stripped out the “guts” of the closet.  We are planning on reconfiguring this space.

Lastly, I took one of the bookcases and lined the back with white and gold polka dot fabric to jazz it up!
