When kids grow up, their childhood bedrooms only don’t work anymore. At that point, we know that it’s time to make a some-more teen-appropriate space. It’s romantic sometimes, though it can also be flattering awesome.
That’s what GeekDad blogger Randy Slavey experienced. What he recently posted on his blog is substantially one of a many considerable kid’s room makeovers we’ve seen in a while. His son only incited 13, and it was transparent that he’d outgrown his childhood room. Slavey knew that his son was unequivocally into a Portal video diversion franchise, so he and his mother took that thought and ran with it.
If we didn’t know better, we competence consider this was a screenshot from a game. But it’s indeed even cooler.
First, his son’s aged seat was damaged down and dismantled.
Slavey wanted to repurpose it during initial (partially, he admits, for nauseating reasons), though it finished adult not operative for this project.
After a walls were primed and painted, they mapped out a preferred settlement with tape.
These round sum were embellished by hand.
The new seat also had to be painted.
Slavey and his mother schooled a profitable lesson: don’t by a two-in-one paint and primer. It chips too easily! It’s totally value it to sand, prime, and then paint.
Under a desk, Slavey enclosed a tip message. Fans of a diversion will get this reference.
For a cold centerpiece, Slavey used mirrors and colored wire lights to emanate “portals” in a room.
When positioned opposite from one another, a mirrors simulate infinitely, formulating a apparition of an unconstrained tunnel.
The room finally came together!
And it looks flattering awesome.
The closet doors were embellished to demeanour like a doors between bedrooms in a game.
Any fan of a Portal array knows that it wouldn’t be finish but these dual elements.
The turret is a wall decal, in box we were wondering.
…it’s apparent how their son felt about a new room.
There are even some-more overwhelming shots of a room on his blog, along with a few of his son’s birthday cake (which was not a lie). You can see those photos and some-more over during GeekDad.
