Our boys received a very special Christmas present this year...
a new room!!
Our little Padwans have been wanting bunk beds for some time so we decided to redo the nursery as a surprise. We told them we had to fumigate the room due to a bug infestation...thank goodness for gullible little Jedis!
We painted with the same Benjamin Moore colors found on the Pottery Barn website, Comet and Bachelor Blue, lightening Comet two shades.
The comforters and shams were discounted finds from Pottery Barn and Ebay!
This is my favorite part of the room! I saw inpirations for the Lego storage/play station and the Lego mini figure board on Pinterest but forgot to pin them! If you are the mastermind behind these great ideas, please let me know so I can give you the credit!!
***UPDATE- My boys AND THEIR FRIENDS LOVE the minifigure board!!! They play with it ALL of the time! Occassionally a brick pops off, but I keep some super glue in a hidden location (don't need anyone super glueing their brother to wall) to quickly put it back on. Knock on wood, we haven't had any pop off in awhile, even with a couple of playdates!****
The mini figure board was made by measuring off even spaces and using super glue to adhere the 2 x 6 Lego pieces. In the orginal tutorial, they used glass but I was afraid it might break so I chose to use white board. After a little use, some of the bricks are coming off with the white coating. I'm guessing a piece of metal would work best, but I couldn't find any in the short time I had to put it all together. If you try it, let me know how it works!
The lightsaber night light can be found in the science section of Toys R Us. The boys LOVE it! It automatically turns off after 15 minutes, but has a remote control to turn it back on if the padwans need a little more "light" before falling asleep.
The silver board on top of the plastic drawers and on top of the shelves are MDP (?) board painted with metallic paint. Be sure to sand the edges and wipe it all down before painting!
We also found the cool Star Wars planetarium in the Toys R Us science section.
It not only shows the Earth's stars, but it also show the Star Wars Galaxy.
After getting the silver boards put into place we added silver thumbtacks as a trim.
It's a great finish to the room.
The shelves back to back add extra storage that keeps clutter hidden.
