Nathan Roberts wrote a great step-by-step on how he revamped a plain bedroom into something special for his son. And I dare say with the pixelated retro Super Mario theme (what he call the Retro Room Mural or RRM), this might appeal to some older “kids” in our audience as well.
Nathan says about his process:
Not long ago I decided I really needed to up the cool factor to my son’s bedroom. He is getting older and I wanted to be sure to instill some cool geek culture into him early on. He has always loved Mario so we decided that would be a good theme to go on. I had seen the wall clings but they just didn’t quite fit what I was looking for. We needed something bigger that tied in more of the room. I finally stumbled on the idea of just painting it right on the walls. … In the end, he loves it (and my daughter is totally jealous) and that’s all that really matters.
