On Monday we shared that we had picked a winner of our local makeover giveaway. Kevin and I decided to give Luke, an awesome teenager boy (13) a much needed room makeover.

His brother has special needs and often gets the most attention and time from his parents.

Our younger son Patrick has Special Needs and it has been a difficult summer. We’d love you to come and help us with your amazing ideas and genius ways of tackling small spaces”. We were thrilled to give Luke a bedroom makeover that would prepare him for this coming school year.

Our intention was to make it feel like a cool space he would want to invite his friends over to hang out in. And a place that he could feel comfortable and motivated to study and excited for things to come!

I had been wanting to paint half of the wall for awhile now and Luke’s room was the perfect place for it. I also wanted to showcase ALL of his interests in a cohesive way, sports and art!

I wanted to maximize the wall his bed was on with bookcases and a spot for his TV. The twin fits much better in the space and also creates a place to hang out with friends.

And keep in mind most dorm rooms all have twin beds, so we are just preparing him for college! The Home Depot really has such great pieces for kids rooms and dorm rooms to prepare your kids for back to school (I started my shopping from THIS collection on their website) And using THESE command strips makes it super easy to change up where you hang your art.

“You can see he loves Sports and still has his art projects from elementary school hanging up! The above art was hanging in the dining room (you can see that makeover I did for Luke’s mom HERE). Notice how I mixed in Luke’s FAVORITE sports pieces?

Now the sports items are hand-selected favorite pieces that really stand-out. I asked Luke and his mom to bring me anything that they wanted back in the room. The bookcases are big statement pieces that I found at homedepot.com SO impressed with them.

It creates the perfect place to display items they make and also for books!

The bottom of most bookcases I like to add some bulk or weight visually by adding baskets. I told her about once a month I give them a box and have them go through and donate or trash things they no longer need.

Before Luke had cubbies and bins for his clothes, not the easiest to keep organized (see below)… I did grab some wood trim from The Home Depot and turned it into a hanging frame!
