I decided to leave the curtains plain. I believe I mentioned making pom pom garlands, but I didn't like them in there (they will go live in Baby Girl's room, so they're not going to waste) and I figured simpler was better in this case. I sewed loops of ribbon at either side of the header and hung a dowel with a cuphook screwed into the end. I find that curtains sometimes don't slide well on spraypainted rods, so this helps Yaya open and close them.
I painted the fan myself, and the jade plant is cuttings from a plant my grandma has that I assume is at least a few decades old. Thrift store brass bowl that I've had for a while.
Bedding from Target, pillowcase fabric from Hobby Lobby. The other pillow is on hold for the moment; Yaya told me he didn't want "a pillow with a cover that never comes off," so it might be on hold forever, depending on if he includes shams in that definition.
B's grandma made the crochet rug for us before she passed. Yaya claimed it when he was little.
Harry Potter art. Yaya wanted more, and I have to admit that three more could be possible someday. Not the unforgivable curses, though. He always wants those and I always say no. No dark magic!
Hulk has seen some better days. Sorry about your hand, brother.
I used leftover sample paints from the sides of the drawers to paint stripes on the video game basket. Controllers and other cords are in a picnic basket under his bedside table.
Yoda doesn't trust that monkey. I agree, the mustache and sunglasses are suspicious.
Light fixture. Yaya wants it to be fuller, like the inspiration piece, so I will probably buy a third package of veneer at some point. I realized about halfway through the second package that I should be wrapping it around the sides of the fixture kind of in loops and not around the entire exterior, if that makes sense. It probably doesn't.
My favorite quote on this wall, maybe my favorite quote, period. Quote by Conan O'Brien, picture from Tumblr, although I can't figure out where.
From here. I think I'm going to put one of these in each kid's room.
Whew. This was a difficult task at times--DIYing everything can be (read: is always) nerve-wracking. I'm glad I participated, though. Is the room 100% done? No, I don't think any room ever is. Specifically, I still want to strip his video game table and paint the bottom of his desk, and both are jobs that will have to wait until the spring so I can do them outside. As for everything else, I'm pretty happy with things as they are.
