Little B's room ideas

This year, Little B is having his room redone. Spiderman is leaving us. Can't say that I'm incredibly disappointed by that!

I'm also not sure how much longer I can call him Little B since he's only about 2 inches shorter than I am! I suspect by the time school begins next in August, I will be looking him straight in the eye.

Needless to say, it's about time he got a room that's more...tweenish.

The only problem with all of this is Little B has a new obsession and wants me to do his room around that particular obsession. Tweenish it is not.

It's Geek. Pure Geek.

To be truthful, I'm sort of excited to Geek Out his room.

I have already started on one piece...

And it's been painted this lovely shade of blue. The bluest blue

Hopefully some of you are already getting excited for this project with me...because you KNOW already what I'm turning this dresser in to. Hopefully it will be as epic in reality as it is in my head.

Meanwhile I need to pick some wall colors that will allow the room to shine. And pick up some art for the walls...

Here's my lame attempt at an inspiration board. I do plan to buy the Van Gogh inspired poster and maybe some other fun posters and frame them. I want a cool graphic element on the walls that won't compete with the dresser.

I was hoping to do a grey or silver on the walls, but Little B already vetoed that. Crazy kid.

Any suggestions? Links to awesome etsy shops?


  1. Maybe leave the walls white and do the trim in color? (making future room changes easier.)

    OH...could you paint your own crack in the wall? Like the time and space crack in Amy Pond's wall?? Maybe using glow-in-the-dark paint?

  2. Brilliant idea! I am pretty sure he has a crack in his wall

  3. Steamy Brass and copper colors inside the dresser?

    Dr Who Scarf patterned curtains?

  4. Guess what?! I chose you as one of my recipients for the Liebster Blog Award!! You can see the post here...

    Be sure to make your post and congrats to you! Isn't it exciting? :)

  5. Love that shade of blue you are painting the dresser! Have fun decorating, sounds like a cool project.


Thanks and have a great day!
