The Star Wars Room

One room I failed to update on was the Star Wars room.  It was a huge success!  Oscar was pretty gob-smacked when he saw it.  Unfortunately the weather was so overcast that we couldn’t get the light sabers on the wall stickers to charge and glow at night, although I’m sure there will be plenty of opportunities in the next few months.

Bits and Bobs

We have been finalising and buying lots of bits and pieces:

  • Variation for the tiles – natural (marble and limestone) cost more to lay than ceramic tiles.
  • Variation for screening on the verandah (a mistake on the engineering report has our deck looking into the neighbours house, so a screen is required).
  • More lights – swivel spotlights for the walk in robe and pantry (Ikea), outdoor spotlights.
  • Shelf for the shower in the bathroom (Metric Tile).
  • Returning the tallboy we ordered for the bathroom – we must have miscalculated as it doesn’t fit!
  • Walk in robe order – a custom designed Elfa solution from Howard’s Storage World.
  • Furnishing bought for Oscar’s Star Wars room – new doonah (to fit the european star wars cover), desk lamp (metalic and star wars-ish) and bedside table (it looks a bit like those walking fighter thingies!) from Ikea.
  • Floor protectors for under the desks (Ikea).
  • Globes – lots of them!
  • Connecting the electricity (this task finally pushed me to tears!).  Are there no electricity companies that know their processes for connecting a new property?
  • Confirmed solar panel installation.

Oscar came to Ikea with me and enjoyed the shopping, but he is a bit over being dragged out shopping and to the house!

The Star Wars Room

Oscar’s room is going to have a Star Wars theme.  He is mad for Star Wars at the moment, having recently discovered the cartoon of Clone Wars.  We have also just finished watching the original trilogy (episodes 4 – 6) with him.

He wants a black room (not happening – but possibly black curtains), a light saber as a light, and pictures on the walls.  It’s taken a while, and a lot of internet surfing, but I finally have all I need.

I found removable wall stickers from Stuck Up Kids:

a doona with both the original and new Star Wars characters on eBay:

and a light saber light on Amazon:

We are still working on the wall colour (for the feature wall), so far today it has been red, blue and now green.  I like the green.
