Room Transformation

Drew's first birthday is only a few months away. I can't believe that he'll be a big boy in no time.

With that, I was thinking of re-doing his room. Since we were able to move Zack's part of the shared boys room into our finished basement, that left a lot of wall space uncovered in the room.

I didn't want to continue the frog theme that was placed on Drew's side of the room for his baby theme since he's moving into the toddler stage. So, I have decided on the much loved Winnie the Pooh. I have a few posters I could hang along with the photo's of his family, but that left a huge bare wall unattended too.

I have been looking for something to place on that wall for a couple of weeks now. I have thought of a few ideas, but shot them down since it would take too many pieces to come together. Now my next idea is to paint a mural. Yup, I'm crazy!!

I was nervous about drawing on the wall, since I haven't ever done that. I was so nervous to be able to accurately place all the details where they needed to make the characters look like Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and the gang. So, I've come across a seller on ebay that has traceable murals for the wall. Perfect!! Now, I just have to figure out what scene I want to paint. I'm so excited!!

I wonder where the Pooh theme came from

I don't know:) Maybe I had an inkling when I was younger that I wanted to gave a Winnie the Pooh themed room for my little boy :)

This is really weird. I'm actually driving around with a big 2ft tall stuffed tigger in the front seat of my car. It used to be mine when i was little, it looks brand new, at the time it cost $40. I was going to donate it to the goodwill today, but do you think Drew might want to have it instead?

Meg, that would be awsome for Drew to have if you don't mind :)
