My nephews room was ready for a redo or let's say updo! It was bland, lacked creativity and personality, just a complete blank slate.
Here is a before picture
The husband and I put our creative noodles together and decided to pull off a Pottery barn inspired skateboard theme.
We wanted to surprise our nephews and had one night to complete it and we made an awesome tween room.
Look at these handsome young men

Here are some details to the room
The side by side comparison
We keepers the walls a neutral blue and drilled holes everywhere to hang the pictures, skate board shelving, and wheels.
Colorful wheels used as hooks to hang items.
Skate board wheels
This was an instant pop of color and functionality. The wheels are from actual skate boards (thanks to my husband unscrewing each one from the boards then drilling them around the room).
The wheels were individually drilled in the wall on all post. The bottom three are in line with the others around the room creating a border.
The wheels were placed around the room level all the way around. The mini skateboards were used variously as shelving.
