House Progress - Benjamin's Room

Okay, so this isn't the finished, finished product, but you can definitely see some progress here.

I saw a picture of a little boy's room on Design Dazzle blog and fell in love with the colors and concept. Navy blue, light blue and a touch of orange. Perfect for a Stars Wars themed room, right?




So you can see the steps...first painted the light blue walls, and dark blue wall, then the light blue stripes on the striped wall.


The measuring wasn't the fun part. No wall is perfect. No wall is the same. This was a little tricky, but my freaky math minded husband did all the math....see? We're a good team!







Obviously these were the rough edges, before cutting in, but you're getting the idea....
























So, here's the more cleaned up version. Still not finished, because in these pics we don't have the tiny orange stripe up yet. Oh, you're gonna like the little orange stripe, trust me! Just a touch was all it needed.







Here's an example of how our children entertained themselves while we painted. Pretty creative huh?



This is not a paid ad. This is just a child who knows where mommy goes to get the good stuff!



Here's a more updated picture. This still is without the mattress and bedding...which is super ca-ute! Yay for some paint project finished!!!






Costco bunk beds and Craig's List dresser.








Man, I wish I could say this room was so easy to throw together. It WAS fun, but it was stressful and there were a few arguments along the way between two adults ( I won't mention any names) who are set in their ways and both think they know the best way to skin the cat. Well as it turns out, two heads were better than one and the process was fun...in hind sight. :-)

Can't wait to show you what this room looks like now! I just have to take pictures this weekend. YAY!!

It looks wonderful! We still have yet to finish the painting in the girls room (it's painted, but we were planning on a chair rail and haven't done it yet, so it just looks like the two-toned pink walls have a scraggly line in the middle because we didn't worry about "cutting in.."
