A Star Wars Room Makeover

Just before school started my son started asking to paint his room, saying he wanted a Lego Star Wars room. It's the first time he's ever expressed any interest in decorating his room so I was all for it. I started looking on Pinterest for various ideas and I found this inspirational blog post. It was exactly what I wanted to do. Before you could blink an eye, we had purchased paint, new curtains, and these awesome glow-in-the-dark stars.

In my excitement to redo the room I didn't take any before photos. The walls used to be tan with red curtains and a red comforter on the bed. Here's what it looks like now.


The Millennium Falcon is actually an empty Crayola art case that I hung up in the corner with some heavy duty button thread. I added a few of the glow in the dark stars to it as well. The prints were just images found online that I tossed in some cheap Ikea frames.

On the opposite wall, over the bed, I added this storm trooper vinyl decal:


It's the first thing you see as you walk into the room and I really like it, but it was a huge pain in the butt to put it up.

We scored this 7-inch glow-in-the-dark sticker at the scholastic book fair that was at my son's school last week. It's on the side of the bookcase next to his bed. It doesn't get enough light to glow and you can't see it unless you're lying in his bed, but that's where he insisted on putting it.


The last big thing that is going to be added in order to complete this makeover is a new twin sized BB-8 quilt. Sam Hunter from Hunter's Design Studio has this amazing pattern. I'm going to make the larger sized BB-8 with a gray background.

My goal is to try and get this done in time for Christmas. Yeah, right...{insert crazy laugh here}.
