If your boy enjoys spending time in the garage with his father, decorate his bedroom in a garage theme. Decorating your boy's bedroom in a garage theme allows him to enjoy spending time in his personal garage. Consider items typically found in a garage when planning how to decorate his bedroom--for example, tools, toolboxes and cars. These items work well as decorations in a boy's bedroom. You do not need any special tools or skills to decorate your boy's bedroom in a garage theme.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Paint the walls in the bedroom white with interior paint, using a paintbrush and a paint roller. White walls resemble drywall often found in numerous garages. Commonly, garage walls lack colour, therefore, plain white walls work well when decorating a boy's bedroom to look like a garage.

  2. 2

    Install a pegboard on the bedroom walls. Typically, a pegboard secures to the walls via screws and a screwdriver. Attach pegboard hooks and baskets to store items.

  3. 3

    Install grey or stainless steel blinds as window treatments for the bedroom according to the manufacturer's directions. Gray or stainless steel blinds resemble a metal garage door and will decorate the windows in the bedroom to suggest the look of a garage.

  4. 4

    Incorporate a car bed into the garage-themed bedroom. Car bed frames come in a large variety of styles, colours and materials--for example, a small plastic toddler bed or wooden car themed bed.

  5. 5

    Replace traditional dressers with large toolboxes. Toolboxes often hold tools in a garage, and can hold clothes or other items in a garage-themed bedroom.

  6. 6

    Create a "work bench" by placing a sawhorse under each end of a large piece of plywood. A work bench designates a specific area for your boy to colour, do homework or read.

Tips and warnings

  • Place only age-appropriate items in the bedroom to avoid possible injury--for example, items with sharp metal edges may cause injury to a toddler.
