His Room - Before


Because his room has been nothing but a crib and a dumping ground for hand-me-downs.
Because he deserves a brighter place to play.
Because we emptied a bunch of stuff out of the closet to move it into our new one in the basement.
Because Hubby was away.
Because I needed a break from quilting.

Last week I took it upon myself to redo The Garbage Truck's room. (Have I mentioned that is what the girls call their baby brother?).  Time to make it just his, and not the repository for our socks and underwear, quilting books, the girl's keepsakes, and other detritus of our lives. It isn't quite done yet, but close. I'll share the after photos next week, as long as you promise not to look too closely at my painting. I'll never win awards or write a book on that!

Oh I love a good before and after. We were just talking about redoing my 12 year olds room this summer, he wants to paint on his walls I'm a little scared.

A great project for this time of year, a makeover. Looking forward to seeing it done.

Good luck! I'm sure it's a lot of work finding the proper home for all that stuff, but it will be a big accomplishment when you're finished!

Must be the woe of most third children. Mine is four yo and he still has the spare double bed and things stored on it and under it in his room, poor little beggar. Garbage Truck, is that because of his insatiable appetite? We used to call my little brother Garbage Guts for that reason. He'd eat anything and everything put in front of him, and anyone elses.
