I mentioned earlier that the kids need a “drop zone” in their own bedrooms…here is one of ours. There are hooks for coats, hooks for hats, and this little organizer (from target) works as a side table and a place for lots of stuff (top two compartments are filled with hats & gloves & some school stuff, and then toys and electronics are in the bottom two)…and then the basket on top is where we keep all of the books!
The head-board was made out of 2 cabinet doors from desk cabinet that we were not using. I literally just nailed the 2 doors to the wall…they aren’t going anywhere!
And you really can’t miss the giant star wars guy. When my son said he wanted a star wars theme I didn’t even know he liked star wars, and wasn’t sure how long he would want to keep that theme, so I didn’t want to invest a ton of money. So, with a very neutral comforter, a few decorative pillows (I splurged on these…and got the pottery barn ones), a little yoda guy, and a few decals (I got these at costco a while ago…there was one giant one and a bunch of little ones…my son has moved the little ones all around the room a million times…he likes to make his room his own!), we had a star wars theme room without it looking like star wars threw up in there…and without spending a lot of money!
And here is the painted furniture in the room! I wasn’t sure about the dresser when I got it…but it was FREE so I painted it, and just kept the original hardware and now I LOVE it. And the bench was a super thrift-store find from several years ago that got painted…I still LOVE it, especially the original green beat-up leather seat! And as you can see there are some of those little decals on the side of the dresser…the ones my son moves are usually put at his eye-level or below…not where I would have put them, but I love that he cares about how his room looks and wants to work on it himself!
