Redecorating Room With a Dirt Bike Theme

By Leanne 1

I am redecorating my 7yr old boy's room. He wants to have a flame/dirtbike themed room with lots of chrome. I need any ideas out there on how to do this on a budget. I am into using any props as he does not have much in the way of funiture but we do have lots of dirtbike stuff. Please help with any ideas we are doing this over Feb 9-14 while he is away!

I think you can get chrome spray paint (if you don't find it in the hardware section, look in the automotive section). If you have lots of dirt bike spare parts, maybe you could make some furniture with them. Maybe a table or even a lamp (you can get the kits to make a lamp at most hardware stores). You could also frame old an old dirt bike jacket for wall art. Another option for wall art is to scan a picture of him with his dirt bike and use some simple photo editing tools to enlarge and modify it for a "pop art" action look. An old helmet might make an interesting lamp, with a store-bought shade. You could cover the shade with flame-patterened fabric to go with the room's theme. If you can't find dirt bike or flame patterened linens and/or curtains (or if they're too expensive), you could get some fabric to make your own. I hope that gives you some ideas!

Paint the walls deep red. Using one of his dirt bike tires, brush dark gray paint on half of the tire, transfer the tire design to his walls. At the bike shop, purchase chrome front wheel sprockets and hang on the walls randomly. Purchase solid dark gray curtains and use new bike chains as tie backs. Hang one of his old motocross riding jerseys on the wall. Take black-n-white pictures of his dirt bike, enlarge to 8x10 and put in silver metalic (chrome) frames. (try artisticsensations.com; you will see a flame red and yellow comforter that reverses to yellow). If he needs a dresser, go to Home Depot and purchase a HUSKY Black Tool Tower

Model 92-2752-6BK Store SKU # 526 558; $299.00. It is a tall Tool Box with drawers. It comes in black. One last thing, again at the bike shop, purchase a

Aluminum Dirt Bike Stand to use as a chair/stool.

Hope this helps!!

Using mud colored paint you could "splatter" paint a wall. You could also mount the front portion of a bike on the wall like a rider is "breaking through the wall".

I also suggest splotching brown on the bottom of the wall to make it look like dirt. In the background could be mountatins and dust

black paint on dirbike tires can make the walls very interesting when you run the tires along the wall once you have applied paint. this can be time consuming but is well worth it. it looks great when done well. use a tire for a 50 or 65 cc bike for smaller tire marks.

I'm doing the same thing in my son's room. I found a site (below) with some things I thought were cute. They have bedding but I am going to decorate the room and leave the bedding plain as I haven't found dirtbike bedding I like.

I downloaded pictures of dirtbikes and copied them. Then I printed them out to make a collage on his wall, I am also in the process of doing a diamond plate chair rail aroun his walls. There are comforter sets out there from Smooth Industries and No Fear. Good Luck!

I found diamond plated tool chest at sears. Stack-on brand. It looks great and is durable. There is a monster bed collection but is very pricy.
