June around our house is full of Celebrations. Both of my children are June babies and my anniversary is in June. Today to be exact - Happy Anniversary Dan!!!!! 13 years of bliss. If you count the years that we have been together we are at 19 - more than half my life. Yes, we are high school sweethearts and I couldn't imagine my life with anyone else!
A few years ago, my daughter (who hates pink and had a pink room) said, " When I turn 10 I want to re-do my room!" Since it was a few years off I said "OK". Well the few years went by and she turned 10 a few weeks ago. She never forgot about the room so it was time for the big re-do. She loves red so that was an easy decision for color choice. We started by taking off every little bit of pink on her bed and replaced it with this -
The pillowcases had some embroidery work done
and the sheets had some work done too!
I found this cute little lamp shade at Target and put it behind her bed on a cute little table -
On the ceiling I hung some cute paper lanterns
and then added some chalkboard paint to the walls
For her birthday, my mom made her this cute little bean bag chair
Of course I need to do a few more finishing touches like adding a bulletin board and shelf for her trophies and ribbons. I know what I want to do I just need a little help from my husband so I am not sure when it is going to get done. I may just have to tackle the project myself!
and then I need to finish the picture area - this area needs a little help but I will get to it!
All in all everyone was happy with the room. EVERYONE BUT -
Yep my son Bryce. He thought it wasn't fair at all and he had a birthday coming up too!!!! So my mom made him these cute pillows for his room and gave them to him on his birthday this past weekend.
I think they turned out great and he loved them too! Now for the walls - I had seen the American Flag made out of baseballs at Red Robin and I thought that would be perfect for his room. I counted to see how many balls were in the picture and there was over 200. That number didn't shock me until I started looking for used baseballs to make the picture out of and calculated how much that was going to cost me. The number of baseballs that I was going to use for his room instantly shrunk! I purchased some baseballs on eBay which was the first time I had ever purchased anything on there. I have to admit using eBay was A LOT of fun - maybe too much fun for me! I just received the baseballs this weekend
Now I have another project to complete - Wish me luck! I will post a picture of it when I finish (hopefully it will be done by his next birthday!!)
