One of my absolute favorite projects lately has been a teen bedroom redo for my niece, Sydney. She decided this was the only thing she wanted for her 15th birthday, which is in August, and we’ve been scheming since January. Most recently, over Memorial Day weekend, we took Sydney on her first trip to…IKEA! It was truly glorious and we had so much fun enjoying all the IKEA favorites like Swedish meatballs, lingonberry drink, and soft serve. Oh yeah, we also looked at the furniture! In fact, we were able to design almost the entire room there. We rounded it out with a few additional elements from Walmart, Target, Urban Outfitters, and Etsy for a very affordable refresh. Even better, we created a gift registry so her friends and family can all contribute to the bday cause. The end result is pretty swoon-worthy, and I’m not gonna lie, I would take this room in a heartbeat. The best part? Extra quality time with my niece, of course.
