Stream­lined teen bed­room

ended up look­ing re­ally cute. She can even keep adding to them.

The fi­nal touch was find­ing a space to cor­ral her jew­ellery col­lec­tion, which in­cluded piles of those colour­ful rub­ber bracelets. We’d al­ready re­placed the hard­ware on her dresser and night­stands, so I used those left­over wooden knobs to make a sim­ple jew­ellery or­ga­nizer. I just painted a scrap of 2x2, screwed the knobs into the front, and at­tached the whole thing to the wall be­hind her door.

The whole wall came to­gether beau­ti­fully, and I love that she can rear­range the ledges any way she likes, as her tastes change. The best part is that no mat­ter how full they get, the vis­ual clut­ter is con­tained to just that one area above her new desk — and it’s not the first thing you see when you walk in her room. #win­ning

Teenage girls love their “stuff,” so you need to find the right way to store and dis­play it.

Heather and her Handy Hus­band built a cus­tom desk with deep ledges above it.
