When we moved in, this room was something special:
Really, it was fun for a young boy, but not for a 13 year old. We called it the 'Toy Story' room. There was fake wood paneling all around, with a horse cloud above....
It wasn't working for Isaac:
The workmanship wasn't fantastic either. That bothers me more than anything:
So I tore it all out.
And patched and patched and patched and patched. Good thing these walls have texture...
Primed what I must.
I put some different molding at chair rail height because the walls were most damaged there.
Then I painted it green (Isaac's favorite color) and prepped for stripes. The end photos show the true color of the green. This looks much more intense:
The middle of the top is technically a little lighter green. Don't know why I bothered.
Added some light blue stripes. They turned out perfect.
Prepped for more stripes:
Painted them black:
Though not shown, the black did not turn out perfect. I was overconfident and wasn't as careful.
Anyhow, it worked out just fine.
This is how his room looks un-staged, because I failed to ever take those pictures.
See? We live here.
There are a few more details to the room, but....I don't have pictures at this time.
Oh, the light is from IKEA (along with the shelves and majority of furniture).
The Legos represent a portion of our life savings.
The artwork is original, lol.
