Hi everyone!  Today I’m sharing part 2 of my son’s Star Wars bedroom transformation.  In case you missed it, on Monday I shared his Star Wars Upcycled Toy Box.  I was so happy with how it turned out!  Especially being my first big project using chalky finish paint.

Both of my sons have these Expedit 8 cube bookcases in their rooms from Ikea.  They make for perfect toy and book storage for the boys.  This one actually used to be in my craft room, but just wasn’t enough storage for me.  Hopefully sometime soon I’ll have everything done in there and you can see the Expedit system I have now:)

IMG_5539-editedI started with these awesome storage boxes from Target.  I had planned to use this color to stencil Chewbacca, but the design ended up looking more like Bigfoot, so I took this box back to the store.

For this project, I used:

1 bottle DecoArt SoSoft Fabric Paint in Ultra White

1 bottle DecoArt SoSoft Fabric Paint in Olive Green

1 bottle DecoArt SoSoft Fabric Paint in Lamp Black

1″ foam brushes,

vinyl for cutting the stencils {affiliate link}

4 ClosetMaid storage boxes

If your craft store doesn’t carry the SoSoft Fabric Paint, you can always sub in the Americana Multi-Surface paint.

IMG_5550-editedI cut my stencils out of scrap pieces of vinyl and dabbed the paint on with my foam brush while my 5 year old supervised.  My kids are very into details;)  I created SVG files for all of the designs I used and included the links at the end of this post.

IMG_5553-editedI peeled off the vinyl to reveal the design underneath and let the paint dry.  I did the same for the other three boxes and that’s it!  The hardest part of the entire process was placing the vinyl just right onto the box.  And even that wasn’t all that difficult.

Now his room look super cool and these boxes can rein in all of his cars, legos, Ninja Turtles, etc.  This was my first experience using the SoSoft fabric paint, and the name definitely fits the paint.  I ran my hand over the dried paint and couldn’t tell the difference between where the fabric was painted and where it wasn’t.  I think this means a cool t-shirt is in order soon:)

As promised, here are the SVG files for you to download and cut on your own:

Thanks for checking out what I’ve been doing in my son’s room.  I’ve got more to share later this week!

      I just got a silhouette and am still learning, so I’m not sure of any tricks that I can share right now to make it work. Sorry!
