Boy's Room Makeover

My boy's room is FINALLY *officially* finished! It's really been done for awhile (before we moved in I was working on it) but I had to save my pennies for the perfect light fixture to complete the space. (Which came from Lowes btw :)

Here are the BEFORE pictures:

Sort of typical 90's decor. Don't you love how I'm too lazy to get my kid out of the picture? 😜

...And there he is again. Must have been super satisfied playing with that blanket, and hey- why mess up a good thing, right?

Okay, so here is the BIG reveal!! Benjamin told me he wanted an "outer space" room. He is super into Star Wars right now (um, who isn't?) but this momma does not do "themey", and I wanted something that would also appeal to the boys for quite awhile as they get older. I am SO happy with the results!

AFTER pictures:

So I added a casing trim about 8" down from the ceiling which helped make that starry sky seem bigger and heightened our 8' ceilings. 

Choosing the right colors was key in not making the room too dark. I ended up with Behr's Pixel White on the walls (really more gray) and Cosmic Blue on the ceiling.

The bedding is from Target and I made the star pillows (copying something I saw on Etsy.) The exposed seams fitting right in with the style of the room made that a super easy and cheap project!

There's my Pinterest rain gutter bookshelves and DIY roman shades over mini blinds projects :)

I'm in love with this little rocking hair I bought on Craigslist and that is Nick's old toy chest in the window on left. It houses all the dress up stuff :) (My kids are costume fanatics!)

Another view...

I just had to use this scripture in the room- so perfect! (Frame: IKEA)

For a pop of color on the adjacent wall, I spray painted an old mirror I already had a Marigold yellow color. (Lamp: Ross)

Aaand... Yay for toy storage!

Well that about about wraps it up! My boys think their room is AWESOME, it has all the functions I was hoping, and I smile when I walk into it, so I think: mission accomplished! :)
