{Boys} Superhero Room Tour

Pin It
I've been so bad about sharing finished projects lately!  This is another one that has been done for a LONG time!

Here's a before shot of my little man's room.....

Not much to look at!  Just furniture, and messy toys all over.  Typical of a boys room.

He has a really cool nook in his room, which wasn't being used at all.

As we talked about what he wanted, he told me that he really wanted a superhero room. 

The inspiration for the room originally started with these pillows:

I loved the vintage feel.  They were superhero-ish without being too character-ish.  Does that even make sense?

I was totally on board with giving him a "superhero room" but didn't want it to be cartoony.  So, we came up with this!

Here's the new room!

(new, as in, it's been done for 6+ months!!)

I was able to utilize that nook much better by turning it into a reading and project area.  

He loves to sit there and "do stuff".

I jumbo clips above the table are the best.  They can display quite a few of his endless projects!

Love this white cabinet and world map above it.  Little man is fascinated with maps currently.

This map is actually vinyl, made up of a million little dots.  It's pretty cool, but was definitely a two person job to put up.

Here's how this side of the room flows together.

Other side of the room:

Probably his very favorite thing in the room is the light up arrow above his bed.

He uses it as his night light.

To keep with the non-cartoony theme, we found these awesome prints!

Little man picked them out, and I must say they are pretty fun.

We have all the important heroes.....Thor & Captain America

Little Man's personal favorite, Iron Man.

And the Hulk.

What really makes this space distinct is the sputnik light fixture.  
Can you believe I found it at Lowes?  And for a super decent price too! 

I've shopped around for a fixture like this for a while, but most of the ones I found were super pricey. Not this one!  It even came with all the vintage bulbs-which are the expensive part to buy!

It was so fun putting this room together.  Little man loves having his own boy space, away from all his sisters!

Thanks for stopping by!
