our oldest, ozzie, is now 12 and in middle school (someone pinch me) and we would really like our home to be a hub for him and his friends.
i’ve found this to be easier said than done, but fortunately we have a couple things going for us, a) i married a man that is both fun and entertaining and is pretty much a big kid himself. and b) our backyard is dialed in (trampoline, sport court and plenty of grass).
however, the inside of our house is on the small side and much more kid friendly than tween friendly. SO, as of a couple weeks ago, it’s been my goal to put together a cool room the older boys will want to hangout in…. on a budget.
(some inspiration from ozzie’s pinteret board)
oz is an all american boy, but he’s also drawn to black and white and geometric patterns. i’d love for his room to reflect all of those things…. fingers crossed.
here’s a peek at what his room looks like as we speak… excuse the mess.
i don’t think we’ll need to buy any new furniture, but definitely want a snazzy alarm clock that plugs in but also takes batteries as his siblings can’t seem to fight the urge to unplug the one he has.
can you think of anything else that is a must have for a tween or teen room!? or tips for hosting older kids? i’d love the help!
happy hump day, friends! we’re off to make welcome home banners for my little brother and his fam! woot, woot!!
