The Birthday that Never Ended

So as part of his Birthday present Matthew requested a room make-over like I did for Brittany. I really didn't intend for it to be too extensive but these thing sort of evolve and it turned into a complete overhaul. I snapped this one right before we started. After I had spent the entire morning hauling out junk. Man, little boys can be hoarders too.

My mom, the super-decorator helped. She thought it would be fun to have a reading corner. Found this chair and ottoman at the thrift store. I covered the lampshade with the fire fabric that is in his room too.

I painted a new headboard, also found at the thrift store, black. Everyone had their college bedding on sale so he did get a new comforter. I made the new quilt on the foot of the bed, also the letter M pillow using freezer paper.

There is also a music corner, I found him a keyboard for his birthday on KSL so now he is ready to start piano lessons. The rug was in the college bedding stuff too.

It seemed to be a big hit!
