Firstly, from now on I'm going to stop calling him Little D and instead he'll be just D. He's 8 years old this year and is no longer 'little' and I can hardly call him Medium D so D it is! I am, of course, referring to my youngest son whose ripple blanket you'll find here.
When we moved into this house some 7 years ago he was very little so I painted his bedroom walls white up to the picture rail and above that pale blue with clouds and kites. I loved it, he loved it and everyone that saw it loved it so all was good with the world.
Not so any more. D's now decided that it's too babyish for him and that he's embarrassed to bring friends home to play in case they laugh at him so CHANGES MUST BE MADE!!! No-one's going to laugh at my child!!! (I'm now officially in Warrior Mummy mode.)
First I saw this mural which, if I was remotely talented as an artist, would be PERFECT!!!!
I quite like the idea of these soldier stencils around the room and D could help me do them.....
I REALLY like this bedding. There's no way I'll find something similar here in SA (very limited choice) but if I can find some camo fabric then I could probably run up a couple of reversible duvet covers myself. May work out cheaper too!
I know it's pretty 'themed' like those scary bedrooms at the Disney hotels and D's won't be quite so hectic but I love the window blind, the beanbag and the vines on the walls. He doesn't have a bunk bed but I can probably get some camo netting to hang over his bed like a mozzie net and...... (as you can see I'm getting quite excited and enthusiastic about this project)!
So what do you think? Good for go or stop right now and go for something a little more classic??? Give the boy the bedroom of his dreams (within budget of course) or convince him that he really needs something more conservative??? WHAT WOULD YOU DO?????????????
Advice will be appreciated.......
