I am so happy to report that most of the painting is done in our “new” house, and the vile, disgusting, pet stained carpets finally were replaced in all the bedrooms this week!
While I am all for the kids’ rooms being a sanctuary for them, and giving them some creative freedom with the decor, I am adamantly opposed to themes. Why, you ask? Because kids grow tired of themed rooms and I am not about to completely redecorate a child’s room every year or two. I won’t make the investment in themed wallpaper, borders or expensive bedding, but try to bring in the child’s interest in other ways that can be easily changed out down the road. Sean wanted a sports theme, so we used this signed Lawrence Maroney shirt (that Mark won at an event) as the focal point of the room, along with some other cool signed items and his trophies and baseball hats.
I hung the name poster I made above the bed. See this post for a tutorial on this project.
