Well, Jake wasn't real thrilled about making the cross country move considering he's 5. So when he asked if he could please have his room painted green, we agreed! Helped that we were probably going to paint it anyway. He was very happy to hear that and it gave him something to look forward to.
Then we decided to add in a little bit of a Star Wars theme (nothing too over the top). Green is not your usual color for Star Wars (most are gray, blue, black). But it can definitely still be pulled off. The bedding & furniture are from our previous guest bedroom (which was all previously in our master bedroom). So like in Evan's room... it's still sticking around. The furniture doesn't really reflect in any way to Star Wars, but we're going with it!
Kind of going with a natural materials meets stainless steel/modern theme. IKEA makes that easy! Now I just need to decide what to buy on Etsy for some original wall decor or art pieces to finish the room off. Check out what we have so far to work with...
|Shelf is a kitchen shelf from IKEA as the magnetic board|
|Place for his travel knick-knacks|
|Lego Darth Vader clock with an IKEA lamp|
|Definitely need some impact heavy decor/wall art for over his dresser|
|Another view of the desk area next to his closet|
|The wall between two windows for the space painting I did|
|Up close of the Space painting... I'll blog soon about how I made it! I really am happy with it!|
