Star Wars Kids Room

May 15, 2013

My son celebrated his sixth birthday yesterday, my wife and I decided to surprise him with a Star Wars themed room … on a budget.

The reason I’m writing this post is because of the lack of resources I found on the Internet when it comes to kids Star Wars themed rooms. I found a whole bunch of great stuff, I mean really great… thousands of dollars great and as much as I think that my son certainly deserves a life size Yoda statue or a wall of FX replica lightsabers I don’t think he’d appreciate those collectibles as his old man would.

We redid the room for about $150 which includes the new bed sheets and comforter. We did use some of his old Star Wars toys which are no long in use but would make great decorations (such as the masks) and puzzles.

The room consits of:

New bedding

New comforter

Yoda Glow in the Dark Giant Wall Decal (bought at AC Moore with a 40% off coupon)

Various Star Wars: The Clone Wars glow in the dark wall decals  (bought at AC Moore with a 40% off coupon)

Darth Vader and Clone Trooper masks

Custom bought pictures (from a local flee market, done by a Korean artist)

Puzzles glued on cardboard

Darth Maul lightsaber night light (which turned out to be the pièce de résistance)

I made a video of the room below:

And here is his reaction when he came back from school (this is the best part):

    That is so great, Zohar! He was so thrilled. I’m a mom of boys so I can fully appreciate the allure of Star Wars. Who am I kidding, I’m a huge Star Wars geek myself.

    Just wanted to let you know that Equal of the Sun arrived the other day. Thanks for taking care of that for me. =O)

      Thanks Michelle, it’s just too bad I don’t have my woodworking shop set up otherwise I would have added some great details.

    That is awesome! My son would have loved that when he was your son’s age. You did a great job!
