Boy’s Room Updates and Corralling Clutter


This post brought to you by Liberty Hardware. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Girl in the Garage.

A year ago, I gave my now-7-year-old son’s bedroom a big makeover.  You can read all about it HERE.  But what I didn’t tell you is that there were a few spaces left unfinished. Boy's Bedroom Makeover - Girl in the Garage Like this wall to the right of his closet, a blank space with lots of potential: Boy's bedoom updates and corralling clutter - Girl in the Garage There’s not much room for furniture there because the door swings open and covers half that space, so I wanted to find something to hang on the wall that would go with the existing decor, be functional, and grow with my son.

To start, I got some items from the Calleo Threshold wall organization system from Target.  It’s a new line of Customizable storage that’s sold in the home improvement section near the lightbulbs.  These are the items I chose, but there are several more wood and metal finishes available to look perfect in any space: Boy's bedoom updates and corralling clutter - Girl in the Garage

Calleo Collection from TargetHow to hang:  First, measure and mark how high you want to hang the rail.  I placed the yardstick above the trim and then just marked the top of the yardstick in several areas across the wall.  For an adult you’ll probably want to hang yours much higher.  😉 Boy's bedoom updates and corralling clutter - Girl in the Garage Hold the rail up where you marked and use a level to make sure it is completely straight. Next, use the enclosed screws to hang the rail on the wall.  You can use a drill/driver or you can just use a simple screwdriver.  I opted to do it the basic way and it was really easy. Boy's bedoom updates and corralling clutter - Girl in the Garage Once your screws are in place, the rail also comes with a couple little “buttons” which you can use to hide the screws.

Boy's bedoom updates and corralling clutter - Girl in the Garage As you can see below, the rail has a little groove on the top back, and the accessories slide across while hugging the top and bottom of the rail. Boy's bedoom updates and corralling clutter - Girl in the Garage We chose a deep basket, a shallow wide basket, and modern hook – all in stainless steel.  There are other styles of baskets and hooks also available.  Oh and the hooks come with hardware to be mounted directly to the wall if you don’t want to use it on the rail.

Boy's bedoom updates and corralling clutter - Girl in the Garage It’s the perfect start to this wall and I’m still searching for a big piece of art or shelves to hang above it.  I’m also considering looking for a narrow kids’ desk to put underneath it.

    Oh my goodness! What a great system. The boys are surely all organized and clutter-free now. I need to get some and do the same. Thanks so much for sharing. Susie from The Chelsea Project

    What a great way to help a little one organize his things! I could use this system for some of my craft supplies. The next time I am at Target, I’ll be sure to check it out.

    Jen,
    I think this would be a great addition to many rooms. My first thought is my craft room. It seems like I could use an unlimited amount of these beauties for storage.
