What does a parent do when their son is a huge Star Wars fan? Create a Star Wars Boys Room, of course!
My youngling LOVES Star Wars. He sings John Williams’ score as he plays, knows every character, and even named our Beta fish after a planet (he’s red – thusly named Mustafar – aka Moose). After finishing my other son’s train theme room, we promised to give his older brother his dream Star Wars room. Here’s how we did it!
We used the left over mistinted paint from our other boys room for the top color and purchased the bottom color (Valspar Asteroid) and the navy (Valspar La Fonda – giggling as I recall Napoleon Dynomite). My son’s favorite color orange was added throughout, with fun geometric shapes. That is what Trent painstakingly did this week.
First, Trent taped off the stripes in a random geometric pattern. Then we painted, removed the tape and fixed any orange that bled thru.
Next we added to pictures above the stripe to mimic windows.
The two panoramic pictures have starry, space pics in them with added Star Wars ships as though you were looking thru a window.
Trent took some of his Star Wars ships from his childhood and hung them with fishing line from the ceiling. Note the light panel as seen in the movie in the Jack and Jill Bath.
Trent hand stenciled the logos over each door and this one under the window. We had the stencils from a Halloween pumpkin carving kit. Our boy loves it! Here are the sources to find items for your Star Wars room – affiliate links are provided for your convenience. Read my full disclosure here.

UPDATE: As he grew, we created a star wars bed of his dream that looked like it was hovering!
