Baseball Room

Remember the clean room contest?  I finally gave the winner, Kade, his award.  When I asked him how he wanted his room painted he said "baseball".  I was not up to making his room look like a baseball field, although that would have been cool.  I took a simpler route.  It took me a couple of hours but the work went by rather quickly.  Right before he got home from school I was rushing to put everything back the way he had it.  I then closed his door and made him close his eyes before going in.  (per Kate's request) Here's a little video of his reaction.

As you can see he liked it.  I think it turned out great.  Love the color.  The things he was asking about were some wall hangings I found at Hobby Lobby.  I put the camera away and grabbed a few tools and then Kade helped me hang them.  Here's one of them.

Now I've got to finish his curtains.  I had them ready to hem but the lining was too stiff I couldn't even get the curtains on the rod.  So I have to rip them all apart.  Love that.  I plan to make a valance out of pennants.  I bought some felt for that.  If it turns out the way it looks in my head it will be great.

What a great idea to video his response! And he was so cute about it! Kissing the walls and clapping his hands! What a nice reward for a good cleaner. How about a video tour of more of your house? : )

Hey Janel, how about just buying a plane ticket and then you can see the whole thing in person?

I love all those home improvement shows with the big reveal. I'll have to remember to do it for the girls' rooms too. I just wish I could have had everything done before he came home from school. Oh well.

Janel, I'll show you mine if you show me yours.
