Seven Year Room Redo

It's been a long time since my last post...almost a month! I've got lots to post about in the next couple of weeks. I had an awesome trip to NYC. If you're interested in purchasing any DVF dresses check out my ebay link to the right of the screen. LOTS of cute stuff!
We've been busy with weddings and swim team. Good grief! I had no idea what a time commitment swim team would be! We've successfully completed two and a half meets. I say two and a half because BabyGirl refused to swim the first meet. BabyBoy had a cast on his arm for the first meet and didn't participate (broken elbow). Beware of trampolines. They are so dangerous! This was our second tramp injury. Our neighbors have one that backs up to our yard and we've had to officially ban our kids from playing on it.
Last Saturday was BabyBoy's 7th birthday party. I can't believe he's seven years old! I told him I would not buy one more Lego but that I would redo his bedroom however he wanted as a gift (and then promptly handed him the Pottery Barn Kids catalog). Gotta have a LITTLE say so. Of course, he picked a Star Wars theme. I found some cute plaid fabric to coordinate with the PBK Star Wars sheet set and a king size sham from Target (lots cheaper than the one from PBK AND it looks better, I think!) I bought some of those really cool wall decals from a seller on Etsy (overloadednoggin was his name). They were so easy to apply and make a huge difference. It really adds to the theme without being too cheezy.
I purchased a black wire storage rack and big galvanized metal bins from Lowe's to put all his Legos and toys in. The shelves also serve as display shelves for his larger Lego projects. I found a really neat shadow box type frame from Target to display his Lego cars. Two cheap Target tables and some storage bins for his videos and video games, a new bedside table and lamp from TJ Maxx and we were a go! Luckily, his carpet already had stars on it so totally fit the theme. Here are some pics...
