His room will have an eclectic look, a little of this and a little of that. The full room reveal will be coming soon. That is if I can get the final touches done! I’m still searching for fun accessories to add to the room.
His new room is mostly gray & black, with colored accents. So I lucked out and found a blue skateboard, and a red’ish one (it’s really almost bordering pink, but it still looks good). The furniture in his room is maple colored so the boards echo that.
– L Brackets
Start by measuring how far apart your L-Brackets need to be when hung. I measured inside each one of the skateboard trucks with the wheels.
You can choose to screw your L-Brackets directly in to the bottoms of each skateboard, I chose not to do that just incase we ever wanted to actually use the skateboards for skateboarding. You will need shorter screws to attach the board to the L-Bracket so you don’t go through the top of the board.

turned out SO cute! LOVE it!

Love IKEA! Love this idea. I think I saw something similar in Pottery Barn Kids, but you did it so much better, and at a fraction of the cost. Great job!

This is such a creative idea! I am featuring this on my Kids Bedroom Roundup if you don’t mind.
Thank you so much Alyssa, I don’t mind at all! I appreciate it. Have a great weekend. 🙂
Good way to use skateboards creatively! I wish I had these when I was growing up.
Thanks so much! 🙂
Love this idea!!! Did u secure the board in any way 5o the L brackets? Or are that just sitting on them?
Thanks so much. Yes the boards are just sitting on the L-brackets, but you could definitely secure them with some screws if you prefer to do that. 🙂
Very cool idea. I’ve always thought this would look cool but have never seen it done. Nice work!
Thanks for share the article.
Thank you so much.
