So I finished the room before Garrett came home from Oregon. He was so surprised, of coarse after he checked out the whole room, he asked if we could paint a fake river on the floor.
Four packages of glow in the dark stars from Hobby Lobby helps make his room look like a beautiful starry night at bed time.
Tons of shelves so Garrett can display his collections of rocks, sticks, leaves, shark teeth and dinosaur stuff.
He got the collectors gene from my side of the family (sorry Ivan), my parents collect everything except thimbles and spoons.
A magnet board for all his drawings, important papers and pictures
(the desk was a $5 find at Goodwill, amazing what a coat of paint can do!
Garrett still wants me to distress it, to make it look old and worn)
When we first moved in, this weird corner in Garrett's room drove me crazy. I would rant about how it stopped me from being able to rearrange his room. Well now I love it, it really helps to make the tree the focal point.
Doing his room has really got my decorating juices flowing.
I am looking around my house and backyard, trying to figure out what I should paint next.
(Still haven't put in my baseboards in my bedroom yet, sorry Ivan. Maybe this weekend)
