Organizing My Son's Room

I finally got to organized my son's bedroom.  We got him a laptop for Christmas and a desk and chair for his upcoming birthday.  I was going to wait  till his birthday to  give him the  desk and chair but decided  to give it early on so I could arrange his room  before he goes back to school.  So last Thursday, I finally did it.  
We got this desk at TJMaxx.  It's a simple chair but he loves it.
 I gave him this  Coby  digital photo keeper.  It has an alarm clock which he uses during school days.   This was a gift I bought for a friend's  child but  was returned  to me when I failed to show up in the party.  Oh well,  it works out well for us.  
 I got him this study lamp from Shoplet.  I t has a seven-step, touch dimming function that includes warm or cool light settings so you control how to shed the light in your space. The 550 lumen lamp is made of ABS plastic and aluminum.  See how you can turn the  light whatever angle you want it to?  It's really a  great light to have in your  study table or work table.  I love how technology  keeps progressing these days.  Products are getting so versatile that it meets the function that we need.  I also love the fact that the cord isn't  attached to the lamp itself.  It makes it easier to  put away.  The fact that you can fold the lamp is also a space saver when you want to put it away.  
 I bought these letters when we were still at the old house but never got to use it.  Now I finally got to hang it on his room.  I also put a succulent plant in his table for some fresh element.
 This is the laptop that we got him.  It is an Acer but I love the features.  I actually borrowed it from him a couple of times so I can do my blogging stuff while I am in bed lol.  I like that it is wifi-ready.
 It's funny because my daughter  has been using his desk to do her art stuff.
 My husband inherited this  bedroom set from one of his Aunt so when we  bought our home, my FIL told  my husband to take  it  for the kids.
 I told my kids how lucky they are to have their own room with closet and stuff.  I grew up with 8 siblings so we shared one big room.
 He is always losing his ties and belts so I hang all of them on the wall so he doesn't have an excuse to lose them ever again.  We will see how  this works.
 I also hang some of his hats.
 And his memorabilia (compass and  medal).
 This was a certificate given to him by the Navy when he was born.  My husband worked at Pittsburgh processing center and his boss presented him this when our son was born.  I thought it was pretty neat.  
 This was given to him  by a family friend during his  first holy communion.
 Of our two children, our son is the sentimental one.  He love  things that have history and sentimental value.  This old clock was a project my husband did when he was in  6th grade and  it still runs like it's new.  My FIL told my husband to take it when we were moving.
 This is the  gift that his sister made for him so we hang =ed it on the wall as well.
I bought this rug for my office but  it's very small so I just put it in my son's room.
 
I am so glad that I was able to organized his room before they go back to school.  Now he have a desk to put all of his  school books and things.

You've done an amazing job organising your sons room. Loving the items on the war.

The room turned out great and I am sure your son is enjoying being in his newly decorated and organized room. I thinking getting a desk for his use is important. Kids need a place to study and do homework among other things.

Your son's room looks really great! I don't think I've ever seen a kid's room that was so neat.

Alli Smith said...

Great job! My hubby just redid our girls rooms last week including new decor and he also made them accent walls using a chevron pattern!

Rebecca Swenor said...

Your son's room looks amazing. I love how you hung the ties and belts along with some of the hats. Hanging these things is a great way to organize them. The desk area looks like a great area to do his homework. Thanks for sharing your son's organized room and your job well done.

I love a good organization project. You did a great job with your son's room. I have to work on my girls' rooms - it's a never ending process lol!

What a great room to hang out in. Boys are always the hardest to keep organized and it looks like you have given him a great head start.

Heather Jones said...

Sharing a room with 8 siblings sounds hard. I can't imagine that. I had to share a room with my little brother and that was difficult. Now my kids have their own room, but I only have 2 kids and no more on the horizon. I bet he loves his new desk and laptop.

WEMAKE7 said...

What a great looking room and so organized. I bet your son loves his new desk and chair and computer.

Dawn McAlexander said...

Your son has a pretty cool room. I would have liked to have had that room when I was growing up.

Maureen Hitipeuw said...

What a beautiful room! You did an awesome job organizing the room. I love the dream catcher. PS: Your dog is super cute!

Mimi Green said...

This room looks really good. We also took advantage of the holiday time and de-cluttered our kids room and rearranged them a bit.

Tiffany said...

It looks great and really organized. I especially love that you framed the artwork that his sister made for him.

Such a nice room for your son. I hope he could maintain this clean and tidy look..
