Today’s the big finale! It’s been six weeks since we started sharing about the projects, decor and ideas for the outer space boys bedroom we’ve created for our sons. Now it’s time to lift off and reveal the entire room in all its galactic glory!
In this room reveal, you can check out the full outer space boys bedroom, including a mural with planets and a rocket, Star Wars bedding, NASA posters and more ideas. If your kids are anything like ours, they will be over the moon with all these ideas for a bedroom that’s out of this world!

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:
- We shared our before photos and plans.
- We got inspired by NASA posters we found online for free.
- We created a galactic change by painting the walls an outer space gray color.
- We painted a mural with a rocket and planets on the walls.
- 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.
- 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:
Now for the big reveal in 10… 9… 8… 7… 6… 5… 4… 3… 2… 1…. BLAST OFF!
Here’s what you see now:
Once you step into the room, all eyes immediately gravitate to the real star of the outer space boys bedroom — the large oversized rocket above my son’s bed! (See how we created it here.)
