my 17 year old took matters into her own hands and informed me that we were finally going to paint the stripes on little man's wall two saturdays ago (the saturday after pageant ended - more on pageant to come). i had originally planned to make these stripes vertical, but after separate input from both gloria and traci (who both have amazing decorating sense) i realized that horizontal would look great (and be much easier - yay!).
back in february brock and i had painted his walls blue, added the vinyl letters and maps, and hung the roman blinds (the blinds were all brock). the cans of paint for the stripes have been waiting in his room since we moved in a year ago, and the painting supplies have been waiting since february.
his room still needs so finishing touches, including the quilt i have cut out (shhh, don't tell him, it will hopefully get done in time for christmas).
