The first room I'm tackling this year is my boys' room - it's been on my radar for a long time now, but I've not really made any major progress. This time it's different, I swear. In 2011 I made a resolution to finish what I start, and now that 2011 is over I'm finally getting around to incorporating that philosophy into my DIY life. Being an easily distracted DIY squirrel is really not any fun, because you end up with 6 rooms that are all 15% complete. Gratifying it is not.
New plan: hold myself accountable and actually finish a room instead of starting new projects constantly (even though starting new stuff is always sort of fun, right? Must. finish. projects.).
I wanted something that was fun, bright, and interesting and that appealed to both my boys since they share a room. I also didn't want anything too themed or anything really juvenile that they would be completely over in 3 years. I'm hoping that this will fit the bill.
The map of the world was my jumping off point for colors, and as crazy as that random teal garage sale chair looks, I found an even crazier, cooler one that I'll be sharing next week. It's so old and garage sale-esque that it crosses over into obscenely awesome territory. My husband thinks I'm delusional, but I'm sure you'll be on my side (you better be on my side, guys).
I can't wait to get started!
