Finally! It’s time to reveal Landon’s bedroom. It only took, oh, three months. Hey, at least it’s done! Like I told you I am not a designer. But this room has my heart in it. When we visited this house before it was even ours he told us he wanted a “planet” room. He loves the solar system. Far be it for me to deny him what he wants. It’s his room after all, not mine.
Now, I know a lot of people wouldn’t go for this paint color. I wanted something unique and bold. My mistake? Buying paint from walmart to save money and skipping the primer. Ugh. These newbie mistakes led to a three-coat paint job that could still could use a fourth. But I gave up because I have had enough of orange fingernails! By the way, orange is very hard to photograph.
Anyway, I don’t really care that it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. The only person I am trying to impress is my son. I wish I had a photo of the first time Landon saw his room. His eyes were as wide as saucers and he just gasped. He thinks it’s the best thing ever and tells everyone about his cool room when they come to our house. My favorite time is when all four of us crawl into his big bed and read stories and give each other night-night kisses.
Enjoy the tour!
