I saw this headboard wall decal from blik:
How cute is that. Now to decide- should I try and paint that?? Should I? Dave, I am sure, would say, "whatever you want." BUT.......
Before I do that- you know who (2 little who's) have been asking for rocket ships on their wall. I am almost 100% decided that I will do one wall of rocket ships in their room, one wall covered in maps, and one wall with chalkboard paint..(what? I have leftovers...).
BUT- the wrought iron bed painted on the wall would take a mere fraction of the time that the boys room is going to take....can you tell I am dreading their room as a project??! It is just all that moving- moving a heavy bunk bed........ etc.
Then I saw this (book shelf made from rain gutters): That would work in the boys room too...and check out the TREE:
Yes- this tree is going to grow at the Mincy house!!!!
****EDIT- I talked to Dave about the headboard and he laughed and said something about being embarrassed he was even having the conversation :) What a good natured man. He may let me paint chalkboards all over- he may put up with colorful papers taped to the wall, he may like the turquoise mantle, and endure the checkered hearth and painted on windows, he may enjoy the orange, red, aqua, lime, & chocolate walls- but for goodness sake he will not have a painted on, fake wrought iron headboard!!! :)
So what do you think about the headboard decals?
How about the book shelves made from rain gutters?
And the tree? Anyone want to make a tree on their wall with discarded pieces of wood? (anyone have any discarded pieces of wood they would like to donate to our tree?!)
