A Very Special Room for a Fantastic Teen Ager!

He's a great kid, was turning 13 and needs his space!  Mom decided that the living room would be ideal and told me he's a huge Hogs fan.  He was outgrowing his child size furniture and toys, so I cleared it all out except for one dresser.  Mom had several file cabinets in the garage, so they got a makeover with a coat of charcoal paint.  With no closet in the room, I bought an old armoire and painted that to match.  

I installed this room on his actual birthday as a big surprise at the end of his day doing fun guy things with his buddy and could not have done it without his big sister!  She was extremely helpful and even made me lunch!!  

I don't have before pictures, but here's the armoire before and after!  A wonderful family friend came over to install privacy doors.  

 Mom's gift was a new futon sofa to hang out, game and study on. 

 I replicated a Pinterest idea of an old ticket stub for a classic Hog victory game for wall art and will soon install a black headboard below.

 Hogs details throughout...

Privacy doors, curtains and lots of space to hang out with hid friends will make him a very happy teenager!

 The big reveal...we'll just say he was thrilled!  
Already in slacker motion ready for X-Box!  Life is good!
