Paul's room was one of the few rooms we didn't paint when we moved in. Here's 4 before pictures and then the afters:
There's a new blog feature so that when you roll your mouse over a picture a title and caption will show if I chose to put one. Make sure you don't miss those words or you'll miss the story. I did just discover that this feature does not work on mobile phones. Sorry. I may not use it again.
When we first moved into this housePaul's room was already painted with 2 walls brown and 2 walls light beige when we moved in. We liked it, so we left it that way. However, we didn't have touch up paint. This rough and tough boy has destroyed the walls in 3 short years. It was time for a redo.
New StuffHand me down art work from Aunt Jess looks awesome in Paul's newly redone room. A thankful heart makes a happy heartDuring prayer last night Paul thanked God for mom repainting his room, for his STOP sign, and for his green and red choo choo trains from Aunt Jess. BrotherThe "Brother" poster was an attempt to play up the fact that he is the only boy kid in the house. I think it helped. He still wants a baby brother, but he seems better about things. Making the old "new"The wagon was Denis' as a child. We used to use it outside with the kids, but felt like it was wearing out. We didn't want to ruin it, so we came up with this idea. This way we still use it, but keep it preserved. NIght StandThis is my 5 year old's version of a night stand. I had nothing to do with it. Pretty smart if you ask me. These blocks were also Denis' as a child. A mother's hopeI hope he wants this painting in his room for years to come. I painted this for him when I was pregnant with him. I know he will outgrow it soon. Thankfully he hasn't said anything about it yet. ThinkingI wish I knew what he was thinking when looking at these while falling asleep last night. Maybe he was able to dream about trains. Maybe he told himself a story before bed. Maybe all he did was look at them. Regardless, I thought it was precious.
