Boy’s Industrial/Star Wars Bedroom Makeover Reveal!!!

We finally finished my son’s bedroom this weekend, and I’m so excited to share it with you!!

He’s been wanting to update his room for a while, and really wanted to go with a Star Wars theme. I, of course, don’t want to have to redecorate in a year when he wants something different, so I tried to keep it somewhat neutral with Star Wars accents throughout.

The room is small so we have to be creative with the space. Oh, and please ignore the hideous carpet!

This post is going to be quite picture heavy, and I will share a buying guide at the end of the post. If you have any questions, please feel free to comment or email me.

In the photos, the pictures look like they’re hung pretty high, but I assure you they are just below my eye level.

On the right side of the room is the reading nook and art/lego table. It’s really important for Cooper to have ways to help him be calm, since he’s a pretty active kid.

This child loves art. He enjoys it and he is so creative. That’s his picture of Chewbacca up on the magnet board we got to use for a display.

Markers, crayons, and pencils are stored in the union jack box.

The above photo was taken last fall when Coop was Darth Vader for Halloween. I edited out the background and placed him on a plain, super light gray background and added the text.

He loves having his own spot to read.

But he doesn’t like to be bothered.

  1. I love this! Totally using some of your ideas! I couldn’t see it but maybe I missed it.. Did you put where you got the Lego storage?

  2. Hi Kristin!

    As I was searching for the minwax in weathered grey. The only stain that I could find where named classic grey and weathered oak? I know your post was from a while back, but didn’t know if you could provide me with the correct name of stain. I did find the Behr in wet cement.

    Thank you,
    Loganville, GA

  3. AMAZING job! We have the Duvet from Target and Serena and Lily but I’ve ended up liking the Target one better. How do you like the West Elm version? I also love the mix between industrial style and Star Wars. You created just the right mix. Great job.

  4. Here from the insprired room. What a great looking, classy Star Wars theme. I almost think my teenager would love it. 😉 Great job!

  5. This is a great room. My six year old son is jealous. I am impressed with your craftiness and vision. Would you mind sharing your approximate budget for those of us that would like to duplicate something (or at least some elements) like this? Thanks!

  6. Oh, this is fantastic. I’m in the process of doing something similar for my boy. How inspirational you are. I’m also a single mother of two. A girl 8 and boy 6 and will be following your blog for more inspiration. Just lovely.
