Organized teen bedroom

Framed photos. Loose photos. Clay Cafe figurines. Medals. Buttons. Programs. Notes. Ticket stubs. Drawings. Posters. Lanyards. Stuffed animals. Jewellery. Tchotchkes.
These are just a few of the items that might be cluttering up a teen’s bedroom near you.

I was in the process of redecorating the bedroom of a lovely 13-year-old, and I knew I wanted to keep her stuff corralled so it looked as tidy as possible.

The “BEFORE”
I decided we’d build a beautiful custom desk along one wall and stack deep wooden ledges above it for storing everything in one spot. Most important of all, the desk and ledges would be on the same wall as the door, so when you walked into her room, you’d be looking at a serene bed and gallery wall, not a ton of “stuff.
