Wave Themed Teen Bedroom

Hello!  I thought I would try to get another post out before the back-to-school madness hits around here. I've been wanting to share my teenage daughter's beach themed bedroom for awhile, now. It's always a bit sad to watch your child grow out of their little kid room and want something a bit more sophisticated. However, this room still has plenty of playful touches that doesn't feel too grown up.

We decided to go with a beachy 'wave' theme.  My daughter picked out her favorite color--a soft blue. Paint color is Soothing Blue by Valspar.

The surfboard belonged to my father-in-law. It was in bad shape, so we gave it a couple coats of paint and leaned it against the wall.We chose to put mirrors in this dark corner niche to add more light to the room. These wavy mirrors are from IKEA. (They don't sell these mirrors online, but here are two other fun options. Click here and here.)

On one wall, we framed out a rectangle with basic molding and painted the wall with magnet paint.  After a couple coats of the magnetic paint, we covered it with BEHR's semi-gloss paint in the color called, Wipeout. (This is the same color we used on the surfboard.)

The wooden tags were found at Michaels.
Small green and blue buttons were hot glued to magnets.

A few other art pieces and an old skimmer board were hung on the wall by the bed.

Beachaholic pillow came from Joanns.  Bedding is from IKEA.

The drapes, pillow shams and the recovered chair were made out of fabric from two IKEA twin duvet covers. We fell in love with the bold stripes and the blue and green colors. I cut up the duvets and with some simple machine sewing, made them work perfectly. (This particular duvet cover is no longer available at IKEA, click here to see more options.)

We ordered the vinyl 'wave' scripture from here.  Have you ever put vinyl lettering on your walls?  It's super easy and looks amazing!

 I love how this verse goes perfectly with the room's theme.

The fabric draped on the ceiling is to look like waves.

Simple clear-colored tacks hold up the lightweight fabric shades (these were found at IKEA.)
Light fixtures are from here.
