The same week I worked on our daughter's princess room, I also finished our son's Star Wars room. It was a lot of work, but I think it was so very worth it! I'm really happy with how it turned out
The headboard is made up of the magnetic boards that used to be on my son's dresser. You can buy them at IKEA. We just put two of them on the wall, side by side.
We also used puck lights with magnets on the back of them (from Dollar tree), to make the headboard seem more like a control panel. The green things are little glass "stones" from Dollar Tree that we glued magnets onto. We wanted to give the effect of driving the Millenium Falcon. Our son really loves playing with the lights at night and we read his bedtime stories by the light of the puck lights
We ended up adding a few more lights... these are LEDs that are attached to a button.
Here is the button that controls the LEDs... I have no idea how my husband did this this, but I think it's awesome
We also put up a "light saber holder" (it's actually a broom/garden tool holder from Home Depot). I originally saw the idea at Quite Contrary
I cut some white vinyl with my Silhouette to make the sign; the black and gray areas are painted
I also repainted what used to be the Spiderman trunk
Here is the sign on the outside of his door
and here is another mural; this one is the view from the gunner turret on the Millenium Falcon. I chose the battle of Endor for the scene
Here is a detail
and no Star Wars mural is complete without the Death Star
Just like my daugter's room, it's totally over the top. I figured we might as well do it up!
Do you have a little boy who's into Star Wars? I was a little worried our son would be scared of the battle scenes, but he loves everything about the room.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
