Okay, I have GOT to do something to distract myself from looking at fabric online. I am literally drooling and ideas are going around in circles in my head! However, with the $600 in doctor bills we've had (IN LESS THAN ONE MONTH!!!) I won't be buying any fabric anytime soon. *sniff sniff* So, how about a post on Aaron's room?
When we first moved here he was really into Transformers. So he had a Transformers bedroom.That has died off, and now it's Star Wars. Since I know he'll probably be over that before too long I don't want to spend a lot of money on Star Wars room decorations, so all I've actually spent money on are picture frames (in which I can change out pictures as his tastes change) and a $5 poster from Walmart, a $10 lamp from Walmart and a Yoda pillow from Target (Thanks, Mom for finding it!!!). Everything else can just be spray painted or whatever to change it up inexpensively.
So, the first change I made was wall art. Remember the ones I designed? Well, I ended up doing something else instead. I can't remember what size frames these are...some random width, but I liked that they were so tall. They were only $3 each! So, I just printed out some Star Wars pictures from the internet, glued them on solid scrapbook paper and called it good. I think they turned out pretty cool, and he loves them!
The second change was to find something on the wall above his dresser. I had this shelf which was originally in the bathroom in Houston, and it was blue. So, I just spray painted it Krylon Champagne Noveau which has a nice metallic sort of finish. Then I spray painted this star black, and printed out an "A" and put that on scrapbook paper and framed it with another Dollar Tree frame that I had kicking around.
Then, I framed the poster in a poster frame from Walmart (I think it was around $10) and spray painted Aaron's name black and champagne noveau. I got the letters from Hobby Lobby when they were having one of their awesome 50% off wall decor sale, so they came out to about $6 total.
What's my next project? Our master bedroom! I can't wait to get started!
