The 3rdÂ +Â last teen room makeover that I recently finished is ready to share.
Whether for your teen or for yourself, I hope you’ve been inspired by affordable, outside-of-the-box style + creations to create a bedroom space that is unique, meaningful, and stylish. It was a blast to design + create rooms that evoke each of their personalities + interests.

TEEN BEDROOM MAKEOVER 2 > Modern Rustic with DIY Pallet Wall
For this last teen bedroom, a girl who is quite the gymnast, I was put to the test to create a fun, colorful, and inviting space filled with bold layers + storage for her many trinkets + awards.
WELCOME TO BEDROOM 3
Come on in and check out the details that make up this new striking + vibrant teen room…
Let’s break it down…
Upon meeting with the 13 year old to discuss the wants + needs for the room, I created this Vision BoardÂ to capture the essence of what items wouldÂ remain +Â what new items would be added + whatÂ sheÂ could DIY.
And this is the layout of the room with the furniture plan I created…
Of all 3 rooms, this space felt the easiest to pull together. Â When I first started the project & spoke with this teen about her vision, the furniture was arranged the same way, which I felt workedÂ best.
The twin bed made of pine with a clear lacquer finish was existing and set under the window. Â I chose to ‘frame’ the bed by adding new white sheer panels (from Ikea) that I embellished with a fuchsia pom-pom trim on the leading edge. It’s amazing how inexpensive trim can giveÂ windowÂ panels a high-end, big-impact designer look!

The vibrant paisley bedding was part of the old space and I chose to keep it since it was so pretty. Â This fabric was the launching element for which the other colors for the room were chosen. Â Fun, new bright pillows were layered on, which gave the space new life.
On the left side of the bedÂ is a tall bookcase, while on the right is a vanity / desk. Â Even though the flankingÂ pieces are differing heights, they work well together since they’re the same color of painted white and have similar lines + detailing.
For the bed wall, I chose a deep + striking turquoise paint color, which gives a beautiful + bold backdrop to the crisp white furniture. Â For the other three walls of the room, I chose a mint hue whichÂ isn’t as dominating. Â The vibrant turquoise + soft mint make a great complimentary pair.
OtherÂ engagingÂ colors of fuchsia + orange were introduced in the rug, wall decor, and pillows.
I wanted to add some fun wall decor and because of the tight budget, I thought some DIY creations would be ideal + it would allow this teens talents to shine through. Â Scouring Pinterest, I found a few cute ideas, one being yarn wrapped letters spelling out her name…
unfortunately I don’t recall the original source for these images. Â If you know them, please reach out and I’d be happy to share a link!
Here is her DIY version…
One more must for this teen room was to create a spot for herÂ growing collection of ribbons + awards. Â She is a very talented girl and it’s important to display what she has been rewarded with!
In her previous pad,Â the awards were scattered around the room and the ribbons were in a box, but now there is a designated place for everything. To the right of the door as you enter, areÂ 2 newly installed white floating shelves for the awards and a simple $5 white curtain rod below to hang the ribbons.
It’s been the perfect solution to displayÂ her achievements!
And that’s a wrap. Â Another satisfied client. Â And this one was only 13!
