Tour the Lane {Boys Shared Bedroom}


Today I thought I would share G and D’s shared room. We finished one giant bedroom down in the basement (It was meant to be two rooms but we opted for one big one instead) and it is the perfect spot for the two little boys to share.

At this point it has good bones, is painted and has all the functional pieces that we need, but for some reason I always seem to get stuck here. I don’t know why I have such a hard time with putting things up on the walls, but I do. I have a few ideas of what I want to do though and I’ll keep ya posted of any changes!

This is a look into the room from the doorway. I could only get half of the room in each shot, so hopefully you will get the full picture of it as you check out the rest of the pictures.



I took this shot before the hardware was painted for this dresser, but look here to see where I posted the finished look.



Don’t mind the little miss watching TV! She is my little shadow and ends up in lots of random shots!







I love having these Ikea shelves for toy storage. I’m thinking about doing something to line the back of them, maybe with fabric or wrapping paper or good ol’ paint.



I’m not a big lover of TV's in kids rooms, but the kids usually have a movie night together on the weekends and this was the perfect spot. Then they can watch their movie downstairs while the hubby and I can enjoy one together upstairs. It works for us.



The couch was a hand me down from Grandma and I just threw a couple soft rugs on top to update it a bit and tie it into the room.



All in all I am really happy with their room and am excited to start adding some of the fun finishing touches that I know will make it feel complete.

  1. oooooh I love the bright colors. I have two boys and am looking for ideas for their rooms for when it's time to give them "big boy" rooms!

    1. Thanks Cindy! I let them go crazy and pick out the colors, which hopefully makes their room feel more like theirs than mine! I'm hoping to get my but in gear and get all the fun finishing touches done soon ...
