Star Gazer Nursery


A fun twist on a celestial theme. I'm a bit of a Star Wars nerd and of anything galactic. I knew I wanted to model a room with subtle accents of the two. My overall inspiration came from the Storm Trooper so I opted on an overall white color scheme with touches of grey and black. I came across this chandelier from Ikea, which reminds me of the Death Star. We received this awesome solar system mobile as a gift (from pottery barn) which adds a pop of color to the space (pun). My favorite feature of the room is the half moon wall. I'm obsessed with ferm living half moon wall paper, but one wall would have costed the entire budget of my room. So I decided to DIY it. Which ended up costing me about $15 in supplies and 6 hours worth of work!

Hi! The "wallpaper" - I basically purchased a piece of foam from a local arts and crafts store so that I can trace and cut out the half moons from 3 different size drinking cups I had at home (ranging from small to large). I then attached them to cardboard for a stamped effect look and easy application. I picked up a sample size paint jar from Home Depot ($3).. that's really all you need. If you decide to go with a fuller, less stamped look, you may need 2 of these. I then taped the walls I believe 5" (you can do 4" or 6" as well depending on the look you want) apart and painted the half moon foam and started to stamp slightly onto the lines of tape. I would work with the same size a few times and then bring in the smaller and larger ones. As for the sheets- they are from pottery barn kids and the curtains are from h&m home. Spaceship art is from Etsy. The black and white one above the rocking chair is from target.

I would love to know the sources for the sheets, curtains and spaceship art!

Great job with the room- you nailed your Stormtrooper inspo! Share some more details on how you recreated the wallpaper, please.
