Here is my son's  bedroom I just finished decorating.

With a little imagination and trying out a few projects from “Instructables" I think it turned out quite well. My little boy thinks I’m the best mammy in the world for it.

I done two feature walls: "The car theme" and " Night sky mural" then added accessories or customised items and furniture in the room. My project has many different designs and crafts witch I will explain more as we go on.

 

You will also see how my first attempt at an “Instructables” project and see how it turned out ... looking forward to see everyone's feedback on that.

 

I think my Instructables project proves that you would be surprised at what you can do when you try!

I am not qualified and have no previous training in any of the crafts in this project. I just love a challenge and have a grate imagination for things, and of course "Research"! If you do your research and can follow instructions well then nothing is impossible even for a complete novice like me.

 

So please feel free to comment, chat, ask any questions or give suggestions as I would appreciate your feedback.

Step 1: Car theme wall

For the wall with the car theme.
  • I first bought the large car image from eBay, its a vinyl decal sticker and the size of the sticker set is 1300MM X 730MM, this also has glow in the dark head lights:

please see instructions provided with your pre-ordered wall art sticker for full details on how to attach to wall.

REMEMBER IF  THE WALL HAS JUST BEEN PAINTED, YOU MUST LEAVE FOR 2 WEEKS BEFORE YOU ADD YOUR WALL ART STICKER !! 
when ordering this item make sure you have chosen the paint colour that you want for your wall, as they incorporate the closest colour match for effects.

  • The customised  car badges is where you get creative.I went and asked a local scrap car dealer for the old car grill badges, they usually wont let you get them off the cars yourself for health and safety reasons, so I paid  £5  for 15 different makes.
