This is what his room looked like before:
That was his idea of clean when I took these pictures....
Also, he had the blanket up because he likes his room dark. And I swear he had curtains, I just don't know what he did with them.....
(He also has gotten a new bed & dresser in the last year.)
Just cleaning out that bookshelf would have been an improvement, but after I cleaned it out, stripped off the wallpaper border, put primer over the burgundy paint, and had Jeff edge with the paint Zach picked out, it looked like this:
Yes, I was using his bottom bunk as a throw all for everything in his room.
After I painted the walls, and Jeff put Zach's new bookshelf & desk together, we asked Zach where he wanted things up on his wall.
This is the finished project:
I eventually want to get matching comforters for his top & bottom bunk, but that's going to have to wait a bit.
Zach is very happy with his new grown-up room!
Now let's see if he actually keeps it clean now.......
