Is your love for Star Wars “out of this world” and you’re dreaming of a Star Wars theme nursery? You’ve come to the right spot! I’m sharing how we took our love of Star Wars and transformed an ordinary space to a spectacular baby nursery. I’m breaking down every detail, including product links and tips, of our baby’s Star Wars Nursery Decor. The best part is how we kept it budget-friendly too.
I love that creating a Star Wars theme nursery doesn’t have to be gender specific. You can do a girl’s version or boy’s version, on top of gender neutral as well. Thanks to the recent love of The Mandalorian too, there’s no shortage of adorable options to design the nursery of your dreams.
Everything about having our third baby has been connected to our love of Star Wars. We did a Mandalorian Gender Reveal Announcement too. It’s such a diverse universe, full of characters, that you can theme an entire pregnancy around your fandom – which makes it so much fun!
Our Star Wars Nursery Decor Reveal (Budget-Friendly Version)
I absolutely love everything about the Pottery Barn Kids Star Wars collection, and we definitely added some of our favorite pieces from it. However, we also did our absolute best to make the baby nursery budget-friendly. We had to redo our two older kids rooms at the same time, so we had a bit of a financial limit.
That didn’t stop us from creating our favorite room in the house though! It took some creativity and work, but I love the outcome of our Star Wars nursery.
Before: What Our Room Looked Like Prior To Starting
Before creating our son’s nursery, this room was my office. It was fashion themed and full of pink and it’s hard to see the 180 transformation, because I didn’t take photos when it was my office.
Here’s what the room looks like as a blank space… our “before” photo:
Starting With The Basics: Paint, Furniture As Necessities
Since it’s our third child, and I know that kids start to have a say in their room when it transforms to a toddler room, I didn’t want to paint every wall. I love the light that comes in and an accent wall keeps the space feeling more open.
We used BEHR Saga Blue paint color from Home Depot – I LOVE IT. It’s not baby blue or sky blue. Instead, it’s a nice muted blue that has some gray vibes.
For our baby furniture, we’ve used the same Pottery Barn Kids Larkin Crib since 2013 and it’s stood the test of time. I highly recommend it (we purchased it at the Pottery Barn Outlet, in Atlanta, for less than $200).
We weren’t able to spend the money on PBKids furniture for the rocker and dresser. Instead, we shopped a baby sale at Target. The Emma Nursery Glider by Delta Children and the Delta Children Farmhouse Dresser are fantastic options that are regularly on sale at Target.
You’ll have a bit more assembly to do, but the Delta Children brand is trusted and I think the design are similar copycats of higher-priced items you can find elsewhere.
Adding Galactic Touches To Our Star Wars Nursery Decor
How do you transform a room into an “out of this universe” Star Wars experience, that the First Order would be jealous of? With a bit of magic from Disney Parks and Amazon!
We purchased some CHEAP Star Wars Decals from Amazon:
All together, the decals of our Star Wars Nursery decor was less than $100. Once again, you can shop around and find the most budget-friendly options.
Space the decals on the wall, where you want them, with painter’s tape. Once you’ve settled on their final positions, you can individually add each one. Make sure to seal the decal onto the wall – using something like a credit card – so it sticks REALLY well.
The end result is AMAZING! Placing the decals and sticking them is tedious work, but I love how it turns out. It’s worth the effort and a cheap way to add a special Star Wars touch.
Plus, it looks awesome with the Star Wars Wampa Rug we scored from Amazon too!
To finally put the room together, we added some finishing touches. We found several Star Wars kids books off of Amazon to display. I always recommend purchasing several sets of sheets before baby arrives – we went with the Pottery Barn Kids Star Wars Crib Sheets. They’ve stood the test of time for our older kids too.
The focal point of his room, and COOLEST part, is probably the Ben Solo Legacy Saber from Galaxy’s Edge at Walt Disney World. However, if you can’t make it to the shops at Batuu, check out Shop Disney to have one delivered. I’ll admit that was our biggest splurge – but it totally matches our fandom.
Other finishing touches include a Star Wars Quilt and The Child Mandalorian Plush from Target. That last piece (that we still need to purchase) is our window treatments. I’ll definitely go for a blackout curtain, but we’re waiting on the best opportunity to purchase them.
