|D is obsessed with farms (OBSESSED) and I’m obsessed with chevron, so …|
|Red poster is from a school supply shop, grey “Always remember you are so loved” was painted by me, blue square painting by me, two landscapes by me (I got new paints for Christmas, thanks Mommmm). Cute baby D photo is on the left, and a cute Baby Darling Husband photo is on the right.|
|Little Sis always makes fun of me for putting Cs in all of my gallery walls, but THERE IS NO “C” here. Just a six, because our sweet boy was born on 6/6/10 (it’s a brass house number from Kent). The red frame is a $1 cut-out I bought at Michaels and painted red, the yellow mat around D’s artwork is a piece of yellow cardstock, the “What is a little boy?” plaque is from when Darling Husband was a baby, and the “C-L-A-R-K-E” photos are free printables that I stuck in two three-slot Walmart photo frames and jammed together.|
|Like D’s new desk? I think it’s so fun! Our town was actually giving a bunch of them away, and tweeted that they were in front of the old teachers’ college for anyone who wanted them. I sent Darling Husband down IMMEDIATELY and he grabbed one for each kid, along with some extra chairs. D is in LOVE with his “real school desk,” and it meant I got to move his old one to the entranceway. Woo!|

Thanks for tolerating yet another post about The Boy Who Got The Worst Room In The House. I don’t have to feel bad any more about choosing a bad paint colour originally (too-pale grey = ick), and it feels good!
D’s room now has so many elements that I LOVE (board-and-batten, a nice bold paint colour, a gallery wall) along with kid-approved items (a funky old school desk, stickers all over the window) and lots of colour (the red and yellow accents in the gallery wall make me smile).
Most importantly, my obsession with gallery walls has been appeased … for now …
