Last week in my latest newsletter, I shared a snippet of our boys’ shared room refresh. While their room isn’t “finished” just yet, I’m excited to share a little bit more with you! It was a very dreary, pouring rain kind of day when I snapped these images, but to be honest, I actually like the softer, more moody lighting anyway. (all sources linked at the end)
How cute is their new name pennants?! It’s definitely their favorite part of the refresh, but before I get to what we’ve changed in here, let’s chat about what we reused, first!
What Stayed The Same
Not every room refresh requires a full scale reno. In fact, the biggest change we made in their room was the swap from bunks, to two separate twin beds. The wall paint stayed the same, as well as the rug, quilts, ceiling light, curtains and curtain rods. We even kept some of the same wall decor, the wall clock, pillows and their favorite reading/gaming chair!
I can’t say enough about how much we love their new twin beds. Fortunately, we snagged them when they were 50% off during the WayDay sale, and I think they are perfect for a boys shared room. The warm wood tone makes it feel extra cozy, it was very easy to assemble, and feels sturdy and well made.
As for the white nightstand, we needed a very specific dimension to fit nicely between the two beds. This one was not only in stock (WIN!) at our local store, but was the exact minimalistic vibe I wanted, and will look great with new added knobs (whenever they decide to arrive).
A few other simple changes we made include the striped sheets, the matching gooseneck lamps, a small table clock, and the charming name pennants.
As for what’s left to do — we still have two other walls with exciting plans ahead! Our boys have been loving reading lately, so I want to add some shelves to hold their favorite books. I’m also working on a sweet mixed media gallery wall, so come on back to check it all out!

The large print, “Work Hard And Be Nice To People” was a simple DIY project, but here’s a similar option to purchase!
