Landon’s Room Reveal

Finally! It’s time to reveal Landon’s bedroom. It only took, oh, three months. Hey, at least it’s done! Like I told you I am not a designer. But this room has my heart in it. When we visited this house before it was even ours he told us he wanted a “planet” room. He loves the solar system. Far be it for me to deny him what he wants. It’s his room after all, not mine.

Now, I know a lot of people wouldn’t go for this paint color. I wanted something unique and bold. My mistake? Buying paint from walmart to save money and skipping the primer. Ugh. These newbie mistakes led to a three-coat paint job that could still could use a fourth. But I gave up because I have had enough of orange fingernails! By the way, orange is very hard to photograph.

Anyway, I don’t really care that it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. The only person I am trying to impress is my son. I wish I had a photo of the first time Landon saw his room. His eyes were as wide as saucers and he just gasped. He thinks it’s the best thing ever and tells everyone about his cool room when they come to our house. My favorite time is when all four of us crawl into his big bed and read stories and give each other night-night kisses.

Enjoy the tour!

  1. I love this! The details with ‘love you to the moon’ and ‘love you to neptune’ (was that on Pinterest??) are adorable. We haven’t added those to our kids’ rooms yet, and I’m so missing them. We’ve only gotten so far as paint and bedding. Then you know, money ran out! You did a fabulous job, Molly. And I see your heart there, completely.

  2. I love the paint color! If ya’ll lived in Florida you could slowly turn it into a Gator themed room. :)

    & I love, love, the mirror framed with pics. That is something I am going to have to try.

  3. You are such a GREAT MOM for painting Landon’s room orange because he asked for it! And in the pictures it looks really well done.

    I LOVE the little Polaroid frames and the hanging solar system.

  4. I love the orange planet room for a little boy! Don’t let anyone tell you different. The Polaroid frames are so cool and your old mirror photo collage looks perfect. Job well done dudette!

  5. Shut. The. Front. Door….
    My son’s big boy room is painted the EXACT SAME COLOUR!!!
    People gasped when I told them what colour I was going to pain it.
    My husband even questioned my motives.
    But the paint?
    It’s glorious.
    We wanted a Detroit Tiger themed room so the walls are orange and everything else is shades of navy and white with a dash of light browns. It’s awesome. It’s not done yet.
    But I’m loving Landon’s room. See? Great minds think alike! Boom
