After only a year in this house I finally got around to decorating Tanner's room. The problem was that Tanner wanted to pick his own theme and I was stifled by that kind of request. He wanted ocean/fishing theme. Everything I found fishing was too country and the beach type stuff was too girly.
But finally I painted the wall making a God awful mess in the process and then I called Mom over to do the tough stuff. She brought her friend Carol. They used to decorate together before Carol moved. Basically they decorated anything that would stand still long enough. If their bossing and giggling can be tolerated they do great work!!
First they taped the wall.
Then they painted it. They may have also requested I quit taking pictures of their butts. See? I told you they were bossy.
The finished wall looked like this. Well it isn't quite finished. The fish needs an eye. Details.
While they were doing that I was basically screwing up everything else in the room and hammering many holes int he wall. Then I would whine until they came and fixed it. This picture of Tanner and his record setting trout is what prompted this whole decor idea.
That is one huge trout at 29 inches long
The babies were quite upset that we hung up their toy, but they got over it.
I feel like I should go upstairs and take a picture of the room now finished and cleaned, but on the way up there a million thing would happen and I would not get to come down here and post the pic until later and then I would have lost the opportunity to post two such quality items in one week.
I am definitely lowering my standards. How about you??
Last home dec project I am hoping to complkete before school starts is painting the guest bathroom. That shouldn't take too long or make too much of a mess. Right?
