One Room Challenge: Week Six

If you’re just joining us for the first time this week, we’ve been redecorating a bedroom for our sons as part of the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda at Calling It Home. Twice a year, Linda challenges bloggers to tackle a room and give it a makeover. Throughout the six week challenge, the bloggers post weekly updates giving progress reports, sharing ideas and providing tips for others to follow along in their journeys. This spring, there have been over 200 bloggers participating in the One Room Challenge. When you’re done checking out our outer space boys bedroom reveal, you ought to sprint right over to Calling It Home and see all the other amazing home changes bloggers have made this spring.

Before we get to the BIG reveal, let’s take a quick look back on where this project started. Prior to the One Room Challenge, our boys had two separate bedrooms. Our five and a half year old had a Curious George themed bedroom and his three year old brother slept in a crib in the nursery across the hall. They get along great and were begging us to share one big boy bedroom, so we decided to go for it!

Here’s the process we followed to transform the room from a Curious George motif to create an outer space boys bedroom:

  1. We shared our before photos and plans.
  2. We got inspired by NASA posters we found online for free.
  3. We created a galactic change by painting the walls an outer space gray color.
  4. We painted a mural with a rocket and planets on the walls. 
  5. We replaced the crib with a big boy bed, found bedding for both boys along with a lamp and other items to decorate the room and organized their closet.
  6. We assembled the entire outer space boys bedroom and are ready to reveal it!

Outer Space Boys Bedroom Reveal

I don’t know about you, but when I see room reveals, I always like to see the before photos along side the after photos. It really shows just how much was changed and you get a better perspective on the look and the feel of the new space. With that in mind, here’s what you used to see when you walked in the bedroom door:

  1. Wow!!! You really did an out-of-this-world job on this room! I love the Star Wars bedding you chose, and of course those NASA posters. Your boys are so lucky!

  2. I like how all the elements come together for this space bedroom! Good thing you went with the themed sheets and kept the comforters more neutral, what way it’s easier to change up the style in the future (and you’ve managed to include a lot of puns and space humour in your post too… so clever!).

    1. Thanks, Nicole! We definitely wanted to make sure the “space” could grow with the boys for the next several years when we picked out the bedding.

  3. Carrie!!!! This is wonderful!! I’m sure they are totally thrilled w/ the changes. It’s fantastic! Congrats on reaching the end of your mission 😉

    1. Thank you, Heather! I’m so delighted you came by to check out the boys new “space”. I’m heading over to your nest now to see how your ORC project turned out. I bet it’s amazing, knowing you!

  4. The murals are awesome! I’m sure the boys are head-over-heels ecstatic over their new room! I know the feeling, since I just did my sons room too, space-age sorta as well, but my boy is older. Congrats and CHEERS to us for another room done!

    1. Thanks Vel, the boys are so very excited about their new space. I stopped by your blog to check out your son’s room – it looks awesome! Nice job!

  5. What an awesome room, Carrie! I’m sure your boys love it! That rocket is fabulous!

    1. Thank you, Rachel! That rocket is one of our favorite parts of the whole space. It really catches your eye when you walk in their room. They just love it!

  6. This room looks SO amazing Carrie!!! Love that lamp you found. Glad to hear the boys are doing so well sleeping together in the same room. My boys have tossed around the idea of being together as well, but I fear they’d never get any sleep. My younger would totally be the one that would be waking my older to go watch TV at 3:30 in the morning. Love it!

    1. Right now, we’re thankful that the older one typically sleeps like a brick and doesn’t let his younger brother’s shenanigans keep him up. We DID have to threaten to move the little guy out of the room this week though if he keeps it up. He promises he’ll try to be better. Three year olds!
