We’re taking on a shared nordic boys’ bedroom makeover with an industrial twist for the spring One Room Challenge! Here we’re sharing our plans and the before photos.

I love that it gives me a push to get something done in a kind of tight timeline and the encouragement of everyone doing their spaces at the same time is nice too!
