The room started with this inspiration a couple years ago... The Pottery Barn Star Wars Bedding, ie the one and only splurge in the room.
As I said, it's merger into an Americana/Star Wars room. I found this flag at the Country Living Fair in Ohio and it was the perfect touch for above the dresser between the beds. (BTW, he sleeps in the bed on the left, this the dream catcher and lights!)
Above each bed hangs some awesome Star Wars art that was a sweet gift from my buddy Janel of Nellie Bellie. Emmy and I made these dream catchers a couple years ago. Sawyer didn't want to make them with us and didn't want one at all at first. Then he had a bad dream and asked if he could have mine. Of course I gave it to him.
Above the guest bed hangs an image of C3P0. My mom made the awesome Star Wars lego pillows for him. No, she does not take orders unless you can physically produce her grandchild.
In between the beds, his low dresser (The entire set of two twin beds, and two maple dressers came from my grandparents originally) serves as a nightstand and houses books, his alarm clock, and special Sawyer treasures.
His alarm clock is none other than Darth Vader.
On the other side, a wooden rhino and red owl I thrifted, and a treasure box he made at a party.
The book rack you see was a flea market find and is an antique arts and crafts book rack. I loved the images on the ends, perfect for a little historian....
Aren't those fun?
We've also created a small gallery wall designed just for Sawyer. I purchased the moon article from a Sweet Clover vendor. The presidents picture was a gift from my brother, the star wars vintage stamp from my parents, the vintage Star Wars poster he already had (it was my brothers), and the horse shoe I found at the Country Living Fair. The mobile you see was a craft kit from my parents that Sawyer and I made together.
We also need TONS of storage for legos and books, and he has a couple of bookcases we use for that purpose. The vinyls were purchased from Etsy two years ago and the shop has since closed.
This shot gives you an idea of where everything is placed in his room...
That dormer window nook is where his desk now sits. I painted the desk, and found the red stool at the flea market.
Sawyer is a HUGE fan of Abe Lincoln, so when I came across this mini bust at a yard sale, I had to get it for his desk,
Because we have a regular window and a dormer window, I created industrial pipe curtain rods to it our needs and made the curtains by simply sewing panels.
Recently I pulled the tall dresser out of the closet, where it had been. It was a tight fit in the closet, but we didn't need the closet space for much else. With all of the legos, I've placed some legos and some other toys on a shelf in the closet and pulled the tall dresser out, which also gives us some surface area for.... more legos.
I also try to place special photos and memories around the rooms of my children. On his desk, Sawyer has a photo from the day he was born, and all of his trophies sit behind his desk. On this dresser sits a photo from his first year playing t-ball, when I was his coach. I know those memories are special for both of us!
Along the wall adjacent to the hall sits a hook rack that our elf, Lolly, made for Sawyer for Christmas in 2012 (Ok, so I made it!) out of a pallet board and old red knobs.
Also on that wall sits a small gallery of red framed train photos my brother took for Sawyer.
