With everything that has been going on in the 8-yr old's room, he has been somewhat apprehensive about every single change that is being made. This has been his only room. He has grown up with this familiar. The process has been unsettling and I did not see that coming at all. Taking his feelings into consideration, the progress has been slow and involving him at every step. I love my guy and want him to be happy.
Here are a few of the things that will be coming into his "new" bigger kid room. First is from my stamp collection. I love stamps and think they are true works of art. I grabbed some inexpensive Ikea frames ( they are the BEST) and showed him how cool some stamps on his wall would be! He smiled :o)
A typewriter! I am convinced that every kid needs a typewriter to goof off and have some word fun old school style. There was no convincing needed!
I found this at the Salvation Army for a great night stand! Not sure if I will paint it or just clean it up ( it needs a deep cleaning) and a seal coat.
Would you paint it or clean and seal?
And these vintage Air Mail plane prints I found at the same shop. If you are a frequent flyer ( see what I did there) on my blog, you may remember my in house engineer was a Navy pilot, we met in the Navy where I was a Plane Captain working with A-4's at NAS Miramar across the hanger from THE Top Gun. It was a forbidden love. We both have a thing for planes. Even if Adam did not give the thumbs up to these, they would be displayed somewhere else.
I only have the ceiling left to paint ( did all the trim yesterday) and then finally putting all the stuff back in his room. This will make everyone in the house very happy since his room is taking up the upstairs hallway!
In my down time, I have been prepping more thrift shop shirts getting ready for another project! It is the perfect activity to do while watching Scandal! I feel like I am getting something sewing related checked off my list.
