60 minute makeover

Son was sent to Nanny's house for the day today while Husband and I have spent the whole day redecorating his bedroom. It use to be an plain shell with only his bed and drawers in it. Now. TA DA.

I'm so psyched about finally getting this done. It was meant to have been done back in April but you know how it goes.. When Father-in-Law dropped Son off he was sleepy (it was past his bedtime) and when I took him into his room to show him around his eyes grew and grew and he got so excited and wanted to touch everything.

He instantly went for his hanging toy baskets (each one has one of his favourite type of toys in it. Cars, blocks and musical instruments) and dumped them all out to play with. He loved it all and it just made me so so happy.

It's hard to get a full on picture of the place because his room is small and narrow, so these are the best I can do.

Husband I think did a spectacular job (I did very little hard labor to be fair... I did dress the bed and organize the stuffed animals though!) which was no surprise as he is quite spectacular.

Will attempt to make a more interesting blog post tomorrow. When I've recovered that is.

It looks amazing! You must be pleased I'm sure (and good and tired, right)?! BTW, I just gave you an award on my blog! And I am following you, too! Yay!

Wow, great job! I have done painting before, I know how exhausting it can be.

Popping over this morning from Airing my Dirty Laundry. His room looks awesome. I love creative mommys! How cool are you? Great job!

Great job. I am SO glad he likes it! I am about to tackle switching my kids rooms so I can fit Sophie and the new girl on the way in the bigger room and put Miles in the one under the dormer. UGH! (And you are worried about 2 babies? I must really be crazy!)

That looks amazing!!! Great job!!!
We do not own, so I have not got to go crazy yet.

We owned in Ohio, but we are still renting that while living in FL!

I am ready to own again!!! haha
