Hi guys! I am back today to share the next big project we have been working on in our old farmhouse and yes it’s another boy’s bedroom :). We finished Ben’s bedroom back in January and we needed to take a little time off to catch our breath before starting Ryan’s room. Over the next 6 weeks I will be sharing his boy’s built in bedroom along with many other incredibly talented bloggers participating in the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda from Calling It Home. This is my first time participating in the ORC but those of you that know us know that we have been living the one room challenge for over a decade now fixing up these crazy fixer uppers we buy and live in :).
Ryan’s room is no exception. Over the next few weeks we will sharing how our plan for gutting his room. New paint, new bead board ceiling like we added to Ben’s room,
new wide pine floors like we added to our master bedroom and the rest of the rooms on the second floor,
a new closet, built in bed, bookcase, dresser, desk and a new doorway and a door. Wow, I am tired just thinking about it :). As you can see we definitely have our work cut out for us!
Ryan’s room presented quite a challenge for us to figure out how to make it feel more open. His room had 3 doorways, one window and a large double door closet which left little room to place furniture. As you can see from below he doesn’t have a normal looking doorway and he’s missing a door :). There was no bedroom door on any bedroom in our farmhouse when we moved in, weird!
The room is also only 8 feet wide so whatever furniture we did have left the room feeling very cramped.
Jason and I spent a lot of time thinking it through and even sketched out a plan on paper. Before starting this boy’s built in bedroom we did close off one of the doorways into Ryan’s room to make room for a built in desk in Bennett’s room.
I can’t wait to share how this boy’s bedroom is going to be transformed over the next few weeks with you guys!!! Thanks so much for stopping by to check it out!!!
