Nerf Battlestation

Have you met my boy, Levi?

Yep, he’s a goofball.
A goofball who loves Nerf guns.

A goofball who had a messy closet.
A messy closet that was little,
and didn’t really hold much of anything.

A little, messy closet
waiting to become…

Oh yes I did!!
warning: Pictures do not do justice
to the coolness of this little closet.
just saying.

Those walls are aluminum foil, Duct Tape, and upholstery tacks.
I used some spray adhesive to help keep that aluminum foil in place.
As well as the Duct Tape and tacks.
He thinks it’s the coolest.

chalkboard placemats on the door.
Oh yeah…the door.
don’t ask.
Love the task light turned pendant.
And that red bulb…feels like a bunker!

Him and his friends LOVE the ladder
that leads to…nothing.
There is a shelf up high to hold the
“special” guns.

That nerf bullet holder is just pvc pipe
glued together and wrapped in Duct Tape.
(everything is cool to a boy if it is wrapped in Duct Tape!)
Some Allen wrenches on the bottom keep
the bullets from falling out.

I added a velcro strip up high
and velcro on the guns.
That way they are kept up out of the way
and it gives the boys more elbow room.
And a reason to climb the ladder.

Do you have a little boy?
And an empty closet?
Okay, new question.
Do you have a little boy?
And a closet you could MAKE empty?
Maybe try a Nerf Battlestation for the few years he is even young enough to want one?
