This project has been in the works for awhile, but it is finally done (minus a few touches).
I started by painting these cute canvases and putting clothes pins on them, so the boys could display the things they have made, or invitations/ certificates. I think they turned out great. i used tape to block them off then painted them with regular acrylic paint, kind-of fading the color out toward the edge.
This wall by the closet has the same basic idea, but it is more gallery style for art.
The shelf on top we added yesterday the board has "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy, when skies are gray.. We sing that song EVERY night before bed. I am going to get current pictures of the boys framed, to put next to it on the shelf.
These are the boys shelves. The Picture sitting on the lower shelf will be hung between the shelves once it is reframed. and I found a cute vinyl that says something like ..being a brother is better than being a superhero..... that I will put by it.
Each Boy has their own shelf to put their "Treasures"
The top shelf is Coopers. He can reach it from his bunk. He put his legos, trophies and piggy banks up there so Jacks can't get them.
Jacks shelf is a little bare. he doesn't have any trophies, so he put his trains and favorite cars on it. Last night he kept having me lift him up so he could see his trains!
I finally Finished Jacks big-boy-quilt. My Mom helped me clip all the seams while she was here for Christmas.
It was a crazy-lot of work, but i love how it turned out. I had to make each and every one of those different balls, and then about 15 Star squares too! Just like with Coops, I hope (after all that work) that this is a quilt he will love and use for Years!
I got this great Vinyl to go above the door. "Guess how much I love you?"
AND "THE WALL"
Isn't it great? I love how it ties all the colors in the room together. I still need to paint the Toy Box, it will be the color of the blue stripe.
First I used yarn to show where the tape should be after I marked all the measurements on the wall and baseboard. We had already painted this wall the color of the ceiling/baseboard so the colors would stand out better.
And voila, perfect lines, perfect edges, and on orange peel!!
And that is the boys room!
