Star Wars Room Reveal With Filament Lighting

The following post contains affiliate links and is sponsored by Filament Lighting. Read my full disclosure here.

My son has been asking for a ceiling fan in his room since we moved into this house a few months ago. In our last house, we had a ceiling fan in every single room. Mr. Whitelane loves to have moving air constantly circulating. We built our previous house, so it was an easy accommodation to have fans everywhere. I guess my little boy takes after his dad because he noticed there was not a ceiling fan in his new bedroom. You can see the before picture below of the room when we bought the house.

We have been so busy updating and making this new house feel like our own. From the kitchen, bathrooms, and basement we have been putting our touch everywhere. I had just finished my sons Star Wars theme room in our previous home. He loves it so I didn’t need to change much about the decor. However, he did get new curtains, a rod, and this awesome Fanimantion Hugh Ceiling Fan from Filament Lighting. The builder basic dome light was not a good fit for the overall aesthetic. We have been ridding this house of dome lights since the day we moved in. I am happy to announce only one more dome light remains. It is in our closet and it will not be there for long. 🙂

As I have said so many times in the past, lighting is a huge part of the design for a room. It can add so much character and style to a space. Choosing the right lighting can transform a room from boring to wow. I chose Filament Lighting for my son’s fan because of their quality and eye for design. Filament’s expertise in the lighting design industry is unmatched. They offer such an amazing variety of lighting pieces for any space. Filament also has a price match guarantee and free shipping. I wished I live closer to Minnesota to see their amazing showroom in Edina. Don’t worry if you can’t make it to the showroom either, you can find everything you need on their website. Also, Filament has a super fun blog that has so many good tips and trends for lighting to make your selection easier.

I really wanted a hugger fan for my son. We only have eight-foot ceilings on our upstairs level. Finding a fan that didn’t have a down rod was very important. I also wanted a ceiling fan that was modern but didn’t look like it came off a spaceship. 🙂 That is hard to find these days. Of course, Filament didn’t disappoint and I found this Hugh fan that fit my design perfectly.

I know people can get apprehensive about a three blade fan. To be honest, I was a little anxious to see how much air it put out as well. Don’t hesitate, friends, this fan is fantastic. I am blown away (literally 🙂 ) by how great the air circulation is on the Hugh. The three blades give it that modern edge while not sacrificing any functionality.

Let’s talk about color. This fan comes in a few options but I went with the dark bronze. It is the perfect dark masculine color. It fits the theme of this room and is just what I was hoping for. The LED light is great for this room and I love the wall control switch. I can adjust the fan speed and the light is dimmable from this panel. How sleek is this whole set up?

I am so happy to have found this Hugh hugger fan from Filament. There were so many other good options they had to offer as well. The selection and quality that Filament creates for their clients are top-notch. My son is loving his cool new fan. One more room is complete in this house thanks to Filament Lighting.

 

 

Beddy’s Beds Boy

Ok, I love my son’s room. The Star Wars theme is just what he wanted. Everything is perfect, except his bedding. He has a duvet with a duvet cover. That is the first problem. The duvet is constantly sliding down inside the duvet cover. It is very annoying to have to try and reach down the cover to pull the duvet back up to the top. My little boy really can’t do this on his own properly. That is only half our problem.

The next fun part of his bedding situation is the attachment he has to minky blankets. He just loves sleeping with a minky blanket (or two). Every night I have to tuck him in with a minky blanket on top of him and then cover him with the sheet and duvet. As you can imagine, in the morning the bedding is like a heaping, twisted pile of blankets. When he tries to make up his bed, he mostly just pulls up the duvet cover (because the actual duvet slides down somewhere in the cover). My little one then tries to find the top sheet (that is usually crunched all the way down to the bottom of the bed) due to the minky blanket. By the time he is done (bless his heart) it looks like there is still a lumpy body in his bed. 🙂 You can get an idea from these before pictures.

 

This is where Beddy’s Beds comes to the rescue. It is a bedding set with the comforter, fitted sheet, and minky blanket (or all cotton options) all in one. The whole thing goes on like a fitted sheet and ZIPS up. SAY WHAT!?? Yes, it zips up like a sleeping bag on the sides to make your kid’s life easier in the morning. This is a game changer people. Not only will it look nice and neat but it is the kid-friendliest bedding you will ever find. My little boy can now make up his own bed and it actually looks nice. Not like a lumpy pile of blankets. The simplicity of this bedding set is EXACTLY what he and I both needed.

 

Ok, I know what you’re going to ask. Is it worth the money? Yes! A thousand times over. My little boy has been sleeping in his new bedding all week and just loves everything about it. He thinks it is too cool that it zips up and has the soft minky inside. My sweet little boy can also actually make up his bed successfully. I have friends that have Beddy’s and they have washed them over and over with the bedding still looking fabulous. They are a great high-quality fabric that will last for years to come. The best part is that Beddy’s saves us so much time in the morning.

They also make blankets like this cute Check Mate one on the end of his bed. These are so big, soft, and easy to grab. My little boy loves the minky on this blanket. We are always grabbing blankets to cuddle up around the house. This is just perfect because he can grab this right off the end of his bed without messing up his bedding. It is really is our go-to blanket now!

Did I mention how absolutely adorable the bedding is too? We ended up choosing this Game On set that fits seamlessly into his bedroom theme. Beddy’s also has so many other classic and trendy styles. I am already eyeing another cute Beddy’s set for my little girl now. The simplicity of Beddy’s is just too good. I want one for every room now. 🙂 If only everything in home styling could look this cute and be so easy.

 

 

 

Star Wars Bedroom

Sometimes I feel like we have got so much done in our new house. Other days, I feel like we will never be finished. I just love being in our house and I feel so blessed we were able to build a home. Each day a little more gets put away, organized, decorated, and furnished. Most recently, I finished my son’s room.

He loves Star Wars and has been wanting his room themed like this for a while. I tried to incorporate some of the same decor he had in our townhouse. I ended up selling his headboard and getting a new bed. I really like the black metal bed. It was a good price and makes a statement. I used his same bedding and just added a Chewbacca pillow from Target.

The nightstand was another Target find. I knew I wanted a cute task lap for the top and Ikea came through for the win. I found this wood crate at Wal-Mart unfinished to go under the nightstand. I put on a coat of Minwax Jacobean stain and it currently is holding a fish tank (don’t ask).

Ok, we got this bookcase for free when we were first married. It has been through more transformations than I can remember. It is such a good piece for my son’s room. It holds all his toys and books. It is not too big or small and fits perfectly in every room he has. It had red stripes and bins from his last room theme. I decided to paint over the red with gray. I found some new galvanized bins from Wal-Mart. It fits perfectly in his Star Wars room now.

I knew I wanted some cute Star Wars patent prints for above the bed. I searched everywhere and finally came across some that I loved. Home James Art is fabulous. All of her prints are beautiful and perfectly done. I was so happy to have found her! Jo is just the sweetest lady you will ever meet. I love all her work and I am thrilled to use more of her prints (some beautiful botanicals) in my front room reveal (hopefully I can show that in a few weeks). Run over to her Facebook page and see her latest sale! I found these frames at Target.

We also switched out the fan to this sleek black one. I love how the black pops against the white. My son was cute and grateful for his new room. I finished it while he was at school. When he came home, he was so excited. He told me he loved his Star Wars room at least twenty times that day. 🙂

 

United States of America Framed

Hi there, I’m Kate. Welcome to White Lane Decor. Thanks for stopping by. I love neutral, bright, and airy spaces. I’m always looking for new ways to turn our house into a home. Have a look around and find out more.

Ok, this was on of those projects where I got really excited to get finished and didn’t take very many “before” pictures. Sorry, but hopefully I will explain it all well. I ordered this United States of America metal artwork off eBay for my son’s room. I just loved the look of it made from old license plates.  When it arrived, it was much smaller than I thought it would be. It also had two holes at the top the size of a hole punch. It wasn’t quite what I expected. Instead of shipping it back and wasting time, I came up with a plan to make it work.

IMAG1009
First, I went to Hobby Lobby and found a nice large frame the size I wanted the piece to be. It was white, of course. However, the white just didn’t seem to fit with the style I was going for. So I took my Minwax jacobean stain and glazed the frame. Once it was all glazed I sanded a few areas to distress it very lightly.

This picture frame came with a cardboard piece between the glass, as most picture frames do. I needed some way to get the metal United States sign to stay. Since it already had two holes I decided I would use the cardboard it came with and gold brad fasteners to attach the sign. I spray painted the cardboard blue. Once that was nice and dry, I attached the metal sign to the cardboard. I just slipped the gold brad fasteners through the two holes the sign had and on through the cardboard. I was worried the sign would be too heavy to hold to the cardboard. This was not the case and it stayed perfectly.

Now that my white frame was all glazed, I still thought it needed a little more. I took some red paint I had on hand to add some racing stripes to the frame. I taped off a larger stripe and smaller stripe right next to each other using frog tape. I had to put on two coats of red paint for the stripes.

Once my red racing stripes were dry, I put my sign and cardboard piece all back together in the frame. It was exactly what I wanted for my son’s room! It turned out to be the perfect size and colors I had hoped for. Even though I didn’t originally like the sign, my improvements made me fall in love with it.2
