Star Wars Room

After years of cars and trucks and trains, the boys were ready for a new look in their bedroom. We repainted their walls (Pigeon Gray from Benjamin Moore), and decorated with a Star Wars theme.

Here's a before picture (from a couple of years ago, but more or less the same as a few months ago!)

We got this idea here.



We repainted their coat hooks and hung their Star Wars masks for decoration.
 

We bought the decals and blinds from ebay. 
I sewed the bedding from sheets I bought on Overstock.com.




I didn't take a picture of the new rug, which is a gray shag runner between their beds. We also have a framed Star Wars movie poster hanging over Oliver's desk, but that corner was kind of messy, so I didn't want to take a picture. It's not that exciting, though.

Thanks for sharing this fantastic room! I am redecorating my son's room with the Star Wars theme (from a sailing theme). Question-- what did you use to hang the masks? Thanks for the link to the awesome (very affordable) triptych art project!

Thanks for your sweet comment! I hung the masks with picture frame hooks of this type: http://www.dlawlesshardware.com/bu30pihaam.html

It was a little tricky to find a place to hook into the masks, but they both seem to stay up there pretty well.
