My Latest Project for Grandson!





My grandson wanted his room to be a big boy room and decided Camo was the theme. His mom is the designer/decorater but due to pregnancy can not do it.....so in comes Grammie...but Grammies is not a decorater.

He got his camo colors on the walls but not the design but he loves it and it all seems to be coming together...still need wall art and we are waiting for his camo netting to arrive to make a closet door covering. They live in a small home and every bit of space has to be utilized so his closet is storage as well as his new entertainment unit. We put his dresser in the closet as well to free up some floor space.

Two walls are painted the dark camo green, one the light camo green and the other a dark brown. We bought him the bunk beds and his other grandmother bought him the comforter sets in camo that are reversible. The brown curtains came with it but his mom is going to do something else to them as they are too plain.

He has some army tanks, men and other items that will be put in either shadow boxes or on small shelves. He painted his own light switch covers and plug in covers. As well as a hocket stick with pegs on it for hanging his medals in...he did a great job of making them match his camo bedding.

We are looking for some cool under bed storage units for his smaller trucks and toys. He confiscated his parents dvd rack for his movies and games and put at the corner of his bed....looks great but wonder how long that will all stay together and neat.
