My Sons ' World Traveler ' Bedroom

It's been a while since I told you that I'd show you the rest of my oldest son's World Traveler room. I'm finally sharing the room with you now.  This one is another long post. Hope you don't get bored with it.

The reason that it's  taken me so long to post his entire room is because I've been hunting for a few globes to hang from the ceiling.  The idea came from Pottery Barn. I pinned the Pottery Barn photo on Pinterest. I didn't want the typical blue ones though,  I wanted the ones that are more gold/tan in color.
If you don't want to spend too much money, garage sales (or goodwill) are the perfect place to find globes. I found one and my friend found another for me at  garage sales. 
The third one came from another friend of mine. We did a trade, she got a stair gate that I was getting rid of and I got the cute little globe :)   My husband hung them from the ceiling with fishing line. 
I may still add a couple more hanging globes OR maybe some airplanes.  I painted the compass on the wall and cut the letters with my Cricut and vinyl. The painting isn't perfect, but that's okay, because it didn't cost me a dime :)   
I like to mix up bedding, rather than have everything perfectly matchy matchy.  I got the striped duvet cover, shams (and rug) at Kohls (on sale, which of course I loved.) The bed skirt and the blanket are from Ross. The navy blue pillow  is a garage sale find and...
I made a couple of pillows out of this material that I found at Hancock Fabrics.
My mom bought my son this Adventure Bible. I think it is perfectly fitting for this room and he's enjoyed reading it. The other day, he said "Mom, I'm really trying to respect you and dad, because I read in my adventure bible that if you respect your parents, God will grant you with a long life." That makes a mama happy :)!!  He's just growing up way TOO fast!

The cute little clock is from Ikea. 

I've had the lamp for a long time.  I got it at a local home decorating shop.  I hot-glued the red cording around the shade. I've seen some similar at Homegoods and Fred Meyer (but not as big.) 
On the other side of the bed I stacked some trunks. The orangish/reddish trunk is from goodwill.
 Here is his desk area:
I stole this chair from my  homework desk that I created in my back entrance.
I found the adorable airplane print at a garage sale.  The globe, truck and stars are from Ross.  The little hanging plaques on the stars use to have "love and blessing" sayings on them, which were cute, but not for a boys room...
 So I painted over the sayings and stamped boy sayings onto them.
The lamp is from Goodwill...
I hot-glued some navy blue ribbon around the lamp shade. I've had the little suitcases forever.  I believe I found them, many years ago, at Ross. 
The little buckets are from Target's dollar section.  I spray painted chalkboard paint onto round wooden circles and attached them with hemp. I'm thinking about getting some more of these for my boys' homework desk.  Ikea has great little buckets like this too.
 Loved this frame that I found at TJ Maxx
 Organized games and such.

I've already shared a few other projects from this room.

and that, my friends is my forever loooong post on my son's World Traveler room.  

Tell me, is this post way too long?  Are there rules on how long a post should be? Did you get bored with it? Or... where you inspired in any way?  Do let me know, I truly LOVE hearing from you!

Happy Monday to you all!
