After painting 2 walls a rich Jay blue and the other 2 a lighter sky blue, I began to color-fade this side wall from the darker shade to the lighter blue in curved strokes to compliment shape of the moon. I painted the moon low on the wall to give the feel of 'landing on the moon.'
I put the large bookshelf in the middle of the room to partition the bedroom space from the play area. This gave a backdrop for the Skylander mural- which Jack's parents feel he will love for now, but may not in a few years. This way- the bookshelf can be moved when they decide to re-do his room theme in the future!
Jack's dad had this retro GI Joe rocket ship in his basement under a pile of things. I spotted it and requested it as a feature in the outer space paradise I was aiming to create for his son! Passing down a piece of history! After it was secured to the wall near the moon, I painted the rocket flames below.
Jack's bedroom area-freshly painted and arranged. A cooler blue to enhance his night-time projector where he can view the planets on his ceiling!
Jack's toys, games, books are compacted nicely in the play area of his room- a cozy corner for Hot Wheels, books and drawing.
