My son’s bedroom

Earlier, I talked about redecorating my son, Billy’s, room.  Well, against all the odds, I finished within a week.  Now, I know there are multiple shows that can do it in one day, etc.  But they don’t have to deal with my son’s stuff and a division of efforts between that project and the daily tasks that make a house run.

I’ll put pictures here, before and after.  If there are small children, you might want to have them leave the room.  This is pretty shocking.

So whaddya think?  Was it worth a week of our time and $300?  Btw, the kids helped a lot, hauling stuff, lifting, painting, cleaning.  Billy picked out everything that went into the room.  And it’s a good thing I asked.  I was going to do a Surprise by Design thing while he was away at basketball camp and redo his room in an ipod silhouette/guitar hero theme.  As it turns out….he wouldn’t have liked it.  Just when I think I have everything figured out….

They start on our roof tomorrow.  I’m so excited I could just shit.  Seriously.  We’ve worked and saved and searched for this for 7 years.  Believe you me, there WILL be a ton of pictures when that project is done.

Love and peace,

    Good pictures! All teenage boys should be so lucky…mom rules, and the room is one of the coolest in the house!

    Well worth the $300! That room looks incredible, and the wall color? *swoon* I so want that color.

    Although, I must ask. How on earth did you manage to change kids with a $300 budget?
