FRIDAY and SATURDAY we bought materials,
I was super proud of myself, letting the boys express themselves with their wall decorations (case in point, W's room) until I had to take everything down from B's room and saw the many many MANY push pin holes that needed filled before the room could be painted!
I was ready to pay someone to fill the holes and paint, but E said he would do it! PHEW! :)TUESDAY
While I was helping my pregnant friend Kara sort and organize her kids' clothes, E painted B's room, did a load of dishes and took care of the laundry that I forgot in the washer!
Paint: Home Depot Behr Riviera Sand (greenish beige) 42.98
paint roller and brushes Meijer 16.00
Moved everything back from E painting, put on the bedding and decided how I wanted the curtains sewn before I dropped the material off for a friend to sew.
Bedding: comforter and sheet set. Mainstay Brand from Walmart
curtains (pillowcases from Walmart)first coat spray paint on name letters
he was jumping around so excited! awww!Love how it looks!

FRIDAYput up the drapes
(hmmm...should I do orange tie backs?)
Added more mini hooks (2.00)and pop of orange to animal net.
moved Grandma Munkin's rocking chair out to the living room.
B said it was his "dream room"..."if it was in a mansion"!
Put up shelves, cork board and hat rack. (Trying to decide how to hang everything....E wanted the shelves diagonal, I wanted the hat rak behind the door...B got the way he wanted!)
back pillow: Gabriel Brothers 10.00
The finishing touch will be the orange bedskirt I ordered online! (I tossed out the idea of painting an orange stripe along the side wall, but E said he is going to ban me from Pinterest, ha ha!)
B loves his new room and can't wait to wake up in it on his birthday! (He's been sleeping on the floor in W's room- they love sleepovers!)
