My boys share a room and I wouldn't have it any other way. Forget that we live in a two bedroom house and I can't have it any other way; they get along really well and seem to enjoy sharing a space. Decorating their room can be tricky because their tastes and my tastes clash sometimes, but we're flexible...so that helps. There's a lot going on in that little room so I keep the palette neutral and accent with bright colors. I had a desk in there but we needed storage, so I swapped it out for a dresser that I found on Craigslist.
Here's the before...
But here's the after...
It took hours to sand down through all of that spray paint, but it was worth it. I painted it linen white and Kevin sandblasted the metal drawer pulls and sprayed them matte black.
The panels on the armoire doors came out easily and I was able to paste fabric with wallpaper paste to the front and back of each panel. Once fully dried, I cut off the excess fabric with a utility knife.
This is a really easy and inexpensive way to spruce up an old pine armoire.
This little room has a lot going on but it all works.
