There she is, in all of her breakfast-making glory. Grandma made the cut. I really love her, and Micah’s fine with her since she’s in the corner.
Incorporating Xander’s favorite things into his room was important to me, but toys literally strewn throughout wasn’t what I envisioned. Most of his playing happens in the playroom at this point, and I like that. For his room I wanted him to be able to see the things he loved in a different way.
Art was the perfect solution. I had Xander select his favorite toys, and then we had a little photo shoot. All you need is a camera a smartphone can work just fine, some good light indirect is best, a few feet away from a bright window and some white poster board to create a clean backdrop. Batman, Spiderman and the Hulk all took turns posing while Xander adjusted their arms and legs.
Printing and framing can get pretty pricey, and I know these superheroes will probably not have a ton of lasting power. When it comes to kid’s rooms, I’m all for spending on pieces that can transition into older years and saving on things that aren’t so timeless in the life of a boy’s bedroom.
Snapbox prints offers printing and framing that’s fast (you’ll get most items within five business days) and inexpensive. I went with the Lustre paper in the white frame and was surprised to realize once they’d arrived that the frames are solid wood. The quality for what you pay is pretty incredible. I think the hulk prints are my favorite. These are the 8×8 print, but keep in mind when ordering that they add a 3″ boarder and the 2″ frame, making these almost 18×18. For under $12, that’s quite a bargain.
The Batman was actually one of my brother’s that he’s now passed down to Xander. All that white space gives your eye a rest amidst the sea of imagery and also brings light to the darkest corner of the room. I think that’s about it for Xander’s room. I’ve really enjoyed working on this space kid’s rooms will probably always be the spaces I most enjoy decorating and love hanging out in here now!
