Teen/Tween Hangout Room Reveal! [#inawaverlyworld]

Tracking PixelThis project is brought to you from Waverly.

This Teen/Tween Hangout Room has been so much fun to work on. As my kids have gotten older, we have needed less of a play room with toys, and more of a room where they can hang out with their friends. So when my kids changed rooms at the beginning of the school year, we ended up with an extra empty room. And I thought it would be the perfect place for a hangout room!

Waverly asked me if I would like to use some of the amazing fabrics for the room and I was so thrilled. I created some new pillow covers, added fabric to a chandelier, new curtains and I recovered a beanbag chair for the room using these fabrics. I also recovered a lampshade and used some Waverly wallpaper to transform a vintage table into a media stand.

I am thrilled that my kids love the room. It is a fun place to hang with their friends, do homework and watch movies. Yay!!

I also framed some of the wallpaper and hung the frames on the wall at the entrance to the room. This might be a good alternative to wallpapering a room for people that are renting or cannot make permanent changes to their walls.

  4. First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question which
    I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious
    to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting
    my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?

    Thank you!

    I absolutely the lounge chairs and I’m wondering how they are holding up? Are those slip covers that can be washed? Thanks for sharing!

  6. Stephanie says:

    Beautiful! My 13 year old needs a room makeover. She would go crazy for this! Definitely going to do the selfie wall. Can you tell me the colour of the walls please? Thanks,

  7. How did you cover the beanbag sphere with a rectangle of cloth? Did you use spray adhesive to adhere it to the beanbag?
    It just make the space so young and fresh for teens!

  8. Melissa T says:

    Do you happen to know who’s shutters you have? Could you post a couple of close up pics of them, including the louvers? Thx.

  9. I LOVE this room! I have been searching all over the internet for the well rounded fabric you used for the curtains. I can’t find it. Do you know where I can order it from? Thanks!!

  10. Beautiful Jen! I love all the crisp and fresh looking black and white pattern with the hits of color- I am a total fabric-addict so I love seeing creative new ways to use fabric in creating a room scheme that go beyond the usual drapes and cushions!!

  19. Where did you get the white lounge chairs?

    Love those!!

  20. Love love love it. I am in the process of turning our playroom into a “teenage lounge” as my girls call it. I decided against mounting my tv as well and have diyed a cute little tv stand about the same size as yours from an aquarium stand ( I painted gold ) and the top of a dresser (painted light pink) I have a twin size bed in there for seating that I am turning into a chaise. You are such an inspiration to me and I love that u just finished this room at the same time I am working on mine! Keep up the good work!!!!
