DIY a fun Space Themed Bedroom with an easy Glow In The Dark Space Mural, cool space décor & great outer space bedding for big kids!
DIY Space Themed Bedroom For Kids
I am SO EXCITED about how this outer space bedroom turned out! This boys bedroom is one of my favorite rooms in the house. And, it was actually pretty easy to do.
The only DIY project in this room is painting the walls and the Outer Space Wall mural, everything else is décor. So, anyone that can paint can DIY this look!

There are other DIY additions in this room, like that Board and Batten wall or the DIY Upholstered Twin Headboard. Those are projects I completed years ago. BUT, I have details about those projects too.
Here’s a quick look at the bedroom before I started this room makeover.
Now, let’s get to the details behind this fun kids room makeover.
Easy DIY Space Wall Mural
I really LOVE this Outer Space wall mural. And, it was really SO EASY to do! I painted the wall my favorite dark blue for furniture (you can see it on this DIY Childrens Desk Build Plan).
The paint color is Signature from the Magnolia Homes By Kilz line. I used an Eggshell Sheen. Once that dried, I stuck the Extra Large Vinyl Planets & Sun I bought on ETSY to the wall.
Then I covered the wall with Glow In The Dark Stars that came in 6 different sizes and shapes. Some of the larger stars were used to copy real constellations onto the wall.
I used 2 sets of these puffy, glowing stars on this wall. It took me about 2 hours to stick them all on. So, pop on your favorite music or a podcast to make the time pass faster. 🙂
You can see my full DIY steps and tips for how I laid out and applied that Easy Space Wall Mural in this Super Easy DIY Outer Space Bedroom Wall tutorial.
Check out how cool these glowing stars look once we turn out the lights at night. It really is a cool space wall, guys! Sometimes, I lay in one of the beds staring at the glowing stars. It’s relaxing and fun!
Now, let’s talk about that cool space bedding!
Outer Space Themed Bedding
I hunted high and low to find the perfect Outer Space Themed bedding for this room. I found these quilts on Crate & Barrels – Crate & Kids website. They were a bit more than I wanted to spend.
BUT, I LOVE that embroidered detail on this solar system quilt. After seeing this quilt, none of the others I found could compare. I guess I’m a huge fan of embroidered details. 🙂
It’s turned out to be a nice, thick, comfy quilt for the boy’s beds. It is currently on clearance on the Crate and Kids website. So, that makes me think it’s possible it’s being discontinued. But, I’m not sure.
Just in case, here are 3 more great Space Themed Bedding options on Amazon for $100 or less:
I built and those twin upholstered headboards a few years ago. I updated the fabric and paint on those headboards to match this space theme décor a bit better.

DIY Board And Batten Wall and Crown Molding Details
Now, let’s talk about those optional BONUS DIY projects in this room. About five years ago, I installed that DIY lattice board and batten on the back wall of this room.
Lattice boards are thin, so you can install them with your existing baseboard and crown molding without it looking weird.
I was inspired by a stained-wood lattice board wall at Disney’s Wilderness lodge. I spent a week there obsessing over that trim work. So, I had to find a way to recreate it at home.
Before I installed the lattice boards, I installed the chunky, Two Piece Crown Molding on all 4 walls. I’m a huge fan of trim and molding.
You can see a big list of all of my DIY Trim And Molding projects in a previous post.
More Kids Outer Space Room Pictures
Here’s a few more pictures from our boys space themed room. I hope you found a few DIY or design tips from this room makeover. You can find links to some of the décor in this room after the pictures.
Painting the walls white created a PERFECT background for a kids art wall. Now, we can add and remove all of their favorite art projects. That white makes their art POP off the wall.
It’s a fun and easy kids art gallery wall. I use painter’s tape to hang all of the paper are. The canvas art is hung with 3M command strips. So, it’s easy to remove everything without damaging the wall.
