Derick is out of town so I decided to get myself in a mess. I’ve been poking away at painting P’s room forever. In fact, we’ve never done anything in his room except a bit of inexpensive furniture and a few vinyl wall stickers. So Monday I hauled everything out and prepped the room.
I’m not much of a decorator so I went all matchy matchy, ordering a comforter set and wall border from Olive Kids that P picked out. Like every kid, he’s crazy about dinosaurs. The curtains are made from the top sheet that came with the set. I just cut it in half lengthwise — I may add some rick rack or something to give them more oomph. The blank spot on the wall is for a mural that R has sketched out. It’s going to be awesome. His bed is tucked into what used to be the closet. I may put the shelf back in with a few plastic bins for treasures. We’ll see.
I still have tons of stuff left to go back into the room so I need to organize it (i.e. take 90% of it to Goodwill while he’s at school tomorrow) and hang a few pictures. I’ll also add a low heat reading lamp above his bed and a few hooks for hats, binoculars, etc.
