This post is for my Kansas City people, or really anyone who has a little one who is a football fan. For my son’s 8th birthday, I had the wild idea to change his room over from his old super hero room (below) to an updated Kansas City Chiefs room… while he was watching the Chiefs game at a friend’s house!
Who doesn’t love a good surprise?!? And while it was a little busy and stressful trying to pull it off in a few hours, it was 100% worth it when I saw the shock and joy on his face when he walked into his new room.
I purchased the paint from Sherwin Williams during one of their 40% off sales. I did one red wall in the color “Show Stopper,” and the rest of his room I painted white in the color “Pure White”. It’s the most perfect KC Chiefs red, and the white balanced the intensity of the red wall.
One of the focal points of the room is the giant Patrick Mahomes Fathead. You can shop it, and the rest of the products I used to complete his room below. I countered the somewhat pricey Crate & Barrel football sheets with inexpensive comforters I purchased off Amazon. Most of my Chiefs branded items came right from Target.
Although it’s sad to see my son outgrowing the super hero stage, this was a really fun project and the perfect time to do it. If I was going to spend the money updating his room, I might as well lump it into his birthday to make it extra special. Given the transformation, I feel like I did a pretty good job of keeping it to a limited budget. My son could not have been happier, which is really all that matters!
