Young talent in the house!!! Check out this cool decor wall grouping for a teenager/young adult.
My daughter, Courtney, loves antiques almost as much as I do. She has been collecting old, green glass jars for several years now. When she was choosing a theme for her new room downstairs, she knew that her antique canning jars were going to be involved.
Recently, Court found these old wooden pop bottle crates in my pile of potential projects. She celebrated and immediately called “dibs”. The wall grouping she designed and decorated herself with these old wooden crates and jars is just too awesome not to share!
Of course, I may be a little biased, but I think she has the decorating gene. 🙂
Courtney added the antlers from her first deer hunt that her grandfather mounted for her. Antlers are really popular items to decorate with lately and it means so much more if you get to use some from one of your own hunts!
Some books and knickknacks she has collected over the years add to the visual appeal and also put a personal touch to the wall to make it special. I love this wall grouping; partly because it looks pretty cool, but also because I know all of the pieces Courtney chose mean something special to her.
She has created a completely cool wall that makes Courtney feel “at home” in her own room.
Court started by laying her wooden crates and antlers on the floor for a “practice run” of what the wall would look like. (Ignore the unfinished cement floor. Her room in a work in progress.) 😉
It’s always a great idea to arrange your items before securing them to a wall. That way, you can arrange and re-arrange until you are satisfied with the look.
The antique, or vintage, items Courtney used in this wall grouping belong together like peanut butter and jelly. Milk and cookies. Ice cream and cake. Okay, I’ll stop because I could go on forever and I’m making myself hungry. 🙂
The mix of old treasures and recently purchased items that she placed together just feels right. What a super cool room idea for a teenager or even a young-at-heart adult. Good job, Courtney! I can’t wait to see what you will come up with next.
