I’m redecorating my son’s room this summer so I’ve been scouring the web looking for budget friendly ways to customize his room. He’s at that age where he’s transitioning from a boy to a teen so he’s very vocal about what he does and doesn’t want. I wanted to share some creative DIY’s I’ve come across in my search for the perfect boy room. Some of these DIY’s are for younger boys but most will work for all ages. If you’re redecorating your son’s room, hopefully, you’ll find an idea or two to use during your project!
