Since my youngest’s room is a Star Wars theme, this industrial Star Wars bedroom from Yellow Bliss Road instantly caught my eye.  I love her subtle additions of Star Wars decor throughout the room without going over the top!

The colors and decor of this room from Thrifty Decor Chick make it perfect for a boy to transition from little boy’s room to a teen room with just a few changes small decor changes, rather than anything drastic.

DIY Pottery Barn Dresser

I always love what the girls over at Shanty 2 Chic make and this Pottery Barn-Inspired DIY Dresser has been on my list to make for at least one of my boys for a while.  I love the basket storage underneath for toys, socks, etc.

It’s pretty much impossible for me to pick just one thing that I love about this room that Angela from Blue i Style created for her oldest son.  Each and every detail is just perfect!

Once again, I’m loving anything I can find for a boy’s room related to Star Wars.  Danielle from 2 Little Superheroes took this thrift store find and turned it into something any little boy would love to have in their room!

Outdoor-Inspired Big Boy RoomThe wood plank wall in this room by Project Nursery is such a great way to create a gorgeous accent wall without committing to completely covering a wall with wood planks.

I love all of the elements of this sports bedroom by Kris Kraft.  Especially the DIY chicken wire light fixture!  You won’t believe how easy it is to make!

DIY chalkboard from Just The Bee's Knees

What little boy wouldn’t love to have permission to draw on his walls?  This framed chalkboard wall from Just the Bees Knees is such a fun accent and perfect entertainment!  Did you see the red ceiling too?

Did you see anything that inspired you?  Does your little man (or men) need a new look for his room?  Be sure to pin or share this for later for inspiration when you tackle your room makeover!  I’ll be sharing more projects for my boys’ rooms soon.  I’m taking on the mantra that it’s a marathon and not a sprint.  Maybe I’ll have their rooms done before they leave for college:)
