This project started because Krew had seen the commercial for fathead stickers. He kept telling me he wanted a superman fathead. I tried to talk him into Batman room. First, because of the colors. I’m not a fan of primary colors of red, blue and yellow. Second, I have NO superman action figures for display. Still working on finding some. I am loving how it turned out, so fun for my boy!!
I decided to do this makeover for Christmas but there was no way to accomplish everything in 1 night. In November I started by sewing all new bedding. He saw me making all the bedding but had no idea it was for his room.
I then bought a new bed that I painted red, he did know the bed was his and we already had it in his room. I bought a used dresser an painted it and put it in his room. We bought the shelves a couple weeks before hand from Ikea. I had sold his old shelves and bed which actually paid for all the renovations.
I also painted a two-tone all the wall before Christmas. Christmas Eve Krew slept over at my sisters and that is when the room came together by painting the the buildings, added the bedding, lamp and prints and finally adding the large superman. (not a fathead but one I found online for much cheaper).
I have to admit, I was wrong. The colors are perfect, I love the red bed and how the dresser and wall turned out. The black and yellow of Batman may have been boring.
