Chase's Rock N Roll Bedroom

It's finally done! As you guys know I posted that I was working on this room several months ago. Well, it has really taken alot of creative thinking...especially in order to keep those green walls! lol...You know I was doing everything possible not to paint! I just did not want to mess with it right now. I also like green and black together...it makes a cool combo. However, it did pose some challenges in here at first. The first thing I found was the picture behind the bed. I had this picture in mind with the records behind it the whole time. However, I bought black bedding and pictured colorful pillows all over the bed. NOPE! It was way too much black and I could not find any fabrics for the pillows that looked right. So...on a whim I bought the black and white bedding at Wal-mart hoping it would tie in with the circular pattern of the records. This was MUCH better! I had the black and red pillow made, it adds some color to the bed.



To make the record/picture combo I hung the picture on the wall first. Then I nailed the records all around the picture alternating them closer in and out.


I found the lamp base, shade and table at Target. The lamp base was on sale for $7.50...what a deal! It needed a little bit of red on it to balance out the color, so I painted it red around the edges.

My mom found the rug at Dollar General for only $12! It really helps to bring in some color on the boring carpet.

I found the little chalkboard at a thrift store I love to visit. I painted it white and distressed it. I asked Chase what he wanted me to write on it and that's what he came up with! It's a side way face he uses when talking to his friends on the computer. lol...Oh, and Kevin found the guitar and amp at a yard sale for $25.
My friend Sherry gave me this idea. She said to do a solid curtain and add stripes around the bottom, so this is what I came up with. I had the black curtain made and glued two strips of gray and black and white trim around the bottom.




Not the greatest pic...The dresser was plain brown wood with brass pulls. I painted the pulls black and brushed on some black paint to give it a distressed look. Kevin said it looks like it's burnt! Ok...I'll take that! lol... I found the rock n roll iron band wall piece at Hobby Lobby.



I just found this frame at Hobby Lobby the other day. They are starting to carry more music accessories.



Here is the other side of the room with the desk/hutch combo I have showed you before. I am letting Chase put what he wants in it, but I might tweak it a bit...lol.



BTW, the chair came from Wal-mart, it was only $29!



He has his army men set up just how he wants them. I DARE not touch them! lol...believe me, he will know if I do!



Of course he has to show off his alligator head! Who bought him this? lol...



You might remember the room before...this pic is all I could find.



And after...he is really loving it. His friends used words like Epic and Beast! lol...I think that means they like it. =0





Here he is chillin in his new room!




For the most part this room is done. I still have a cork board I am going to paint and of course we will finish adding some accessories to those shelves. Other than that, I think it's done! Hope you like it...it's definitely a little different than what I expected. Also, this room was done on a tight budget! We spent around $750 including the mattress and boxsprings, desk/hutch, bedding and accessories. Luckily, my Mammaw had tons of records so those were free!


Be sure and join me for my weekly Share Your Creations party ln Thursday, I will have the linky tool up tomorrow night!


I am joining Wow Us Wednesday at Savvy Southern Style.

The records/picture combo is inspired! Love the theme.

L said...

The room looks great, Kristen. My favorite thing is the artwork above the bed. The idea of the records framing out the artwork is awesome! The bedding works very well in the room with the green walls.
I can see why Chase and his friends like his new room. Nice job!

Karan said...

Kristen, It looks supper. Just love the idea with all the records.

It came together just perfect.

You did a great job, Kristen! I love the album/art work! It makes such a great focal wall for Chase's bed. I have noticed the music related accessories at Hobby Lobby since my son is in a band and has about 5 guitars now. I've restrained myself though because I have to remember that he has a small apartment and no room for Mom's buying sprees! The bedding worked out great. What a wonderful room for a boy/teen.

CalypsoInTheCountry said...

I love how the room turned out! He must be so excited! I am always looking for boys room inspiration - they can be so hard. I am switching my son's bed from a twin to a full too. It is amazing how fast they grow! Great job!

Patti said...

Room looks great (will he keep it that neat and tidy - lol) Love the records around the picture - - geez, do kids even know what a record is!!

Shenita @ Embellishments by SLR said...

Kristen, this room rocks! Literally! I love your artwork above the bed! Very creative!! Your son is a lucky young man!

Carrie @ Dittle Dattle said...

Kristen, you really soared off the charts with this cool music themed room!!! I really like how the bedspread repeats the circles in the records and the use of a real guitar and amp as accessories is just beastly!! LOL

NanaDiana said...

Kristen, I love it- It is perfect for your son..and I love the records framing the artwork. Perfect bedspread! xo Diana

Sally said...

That looks wonderful! I love the record/picture frame above the bed!

Ramblings of a Southern Girl ~ Rhonda G said...

This is so cute!!! You did a wonderful job pulling all the different elements together! The bedding looks great and the record piece behind the bed is so creative and unique! :)

Allyson Pecilunas said...

Everything looks so good, Kristen! Boys rooms are the hardest! Love the artwork above the bed. Great job!

Suzy said...

It looks great, Kristen. Just like a young boys room should. I'm sure he loves it - and his mama too!

Melissa Miller said...

Wow! Kristen this looks really neat-o! I love what you did with headboard and the bedding is great too. I know Chase loves it. Fabulous!

Hey I didn't know you were on Pinterest? I have never found you. If you want to follow my boards then I can follow you back that way. Stop by! Pinterst is fun! I just pin anything I like I find on the internet. It's that easy.

Warmly, ~Melissa :)

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Great transformation. You can tell how proud he is.

Savvy Seasons said...

Wow, what a transformation. Kristen, you did such a wonderful job planning and implementing the Rock N Roll theme. I love the picture with the records around it, brilliant idea. Chase's smile says it all. I love all the elements of his room, fabulous job! xo ~Liz

Becca said...

Kristen, I LOVE Chase's room! You did an outstanding job ... so did Chase with his Army guys! The records on the wall is genious, as is the guitar, and I love the music pieces (iron art, frame) all around. The new bedding is perfect! Chase looks quite at home in his new digs ... I'm sure his buds have a beastly rock'n good time when they're in there, too! xoxo

Terri Weston said...

Lucky Chase neat room. And soooo clean ;)

Michele Smith said...

His room is epic! (I hear those words around here all the time too) LOL
I love what you did with the records. My son and I actually gathered a few for his bedroom last summer but we haven't worked on his room yet.
I'll have to show him Chase's room!

Bedroom furniture is a major component in home decor. Your master bedroom is the soul and heart of your house and it should convey the same feeling and style as the rest of your home. Selecting the appropriate furniture for bedroom can be really overwhelming, though with helpful guidance available from the internet and visiting some good websites that deal in furniture, it may be even easier.

MusicWithMsUlrich said...

Thank you, Kristen for this inspiration! As most people have said, my favorite part was the artwork with old recorders as the border. I loved it so much that I Pinned it several months ago and made something similar in my music classroom for a bulletin board! I love it, and I have YOU to thank for sharing it!
