Teen Girls' Room Reveal {a boho inspired makeover}


Hooooray y'all, the girls' room is done! Don't get me wrong, I do love the process of re-decorating a space, but I truly do LOVE when it's finished too! You may remember that I became a bit obsessed with the bohemian style about this time last year when we remodeled our pop up camper {if you missed that click here}. Well, the girls really loved that style too, and now that they're a bit older, they really wanted to take their room from it's fun and color-filled theme to something a bit more mature, so a little boho chic remodel was in order. This room change had quite a few stages mind you, nothing happens fast around here! If I were a more on the ball blogger, I would have been writing about and photographing the small steps, oh boy, blogger fail. But anywho, it started with a chalkboard wall that literally and immediately changed the vibe in the whole room. It was quite amazing, their room really got it's moody on!



Aaaaaand, there it sat for the longest while, a chalkboard wall. We all began scrimping and saving pennies, and searching sales at Urban Outfitters. Since last year, Olivia had been confiscating any and all change she found around the house and suddenly she developed a love of doing her Daddy's laundry, must of had something to do with the fact that he leaves change in his pockets and it comes out in the wash- ha! She filled jars with change and would take them to convert into real money for her room savings jar. Sofia would add money to the jar with her Christmas money and allowance, so you see, this room has been quite a collaboration!



We began slowly collecting pieces for the room and putting them in a box. Finally after a few months we were ready to transform this room! One of the key elements for the girls room was a Crosley Record Player. I scoured Ebay forever, and finally found a refurbished model that was within our budget. I was terrified that it would come and be a disappointment, but I was bowled over, it worked! My how I've missed the sound of a turntable! The girls started collecting records from thrift stores and not a day goes by that I don't hear the most wonderful music coming from their room.



Another thing you may notice is the addition of plants. I love the plants and I'm sure we'll gradually add even more. They're key to the bohemian theme and they really do breathe life into any room. Love, love them!


There's so much more we could have done, but this was what we could do and still stay within our budget, and we can always add more pieces as we save more money. Hey, there's always lots of Daddy's laundry to do!

Thanks for stopping by for the tour y'all! I've listed the sources below just in case you want to get your bohemian vibe on too!

    1. Hi Natalie! We used heavy duty thumbtacks, the kind you'd get at a fabric or home improvement store. They are mostly used for recovering chairs and such. They have a longer needle so they've worked out perfectly. The fabric is so billowy that you can't even see the little tacks. Thanks so much for your question and have a wonderful evening!
