Tyler's New Room

Tyler's room was pretty juvenile. It was red, white, blue, and green. The decor was mostly trains and stars. He was ready for something new. I had plenty of ideas, but after talking to Ben and Tyler (both actual boys), we decided to go with posters. So, Ben took Tyler to Walmart and Borders and picked out a bunch of posters. Ben's mom made him a new blanket for his bed (Spiderman) and my mom got him Star Wars sheets. I made him a ribbon board with Batman fabric and now his room is perfect for a 6 1/2 year old boy. He loves it and that's what's important. Apparently, yesterday Ben took Tyler back to Walmart and picked out some paint. He is tired of the blue on the bottom of his walls. The color he picked out is called "Energy Red". That is the perfect name for this color. It's like red on steroids. It's going to be painful to paint.

I would have loved to been on those shopping trips just to have seen the process. What neat parents you are allowing them to be their own designers & not insist on what you like. It is the beginning of a new generation of interior designers in the family! We love both rooms! Good job kids!
