This is something that happens over time at our house. Most recently my daughter has gotten her big girl furniture and my son has added a surf motif to his Americana bedroom. I found several items sitting buried in his closet waiting for someone, anyone to rescue them to be displayed on the wall. I decided the time was now, and I would tackle this project on my own.
To start I gathered a hammer, dry wall screws, measuring tape, and a pencil. I grabbed the ladder and went to work. It took surprisingly very little time and effort and made me wonder why I had been waiting so long for someone else to do it. And I am not handy at all. I staggered the stars so they wouldn’t need to be in a straight line.
This is one of my favorite items – the stuffed animal zoo. My son has a TON of stuffed animals and they were taking over his room. This piece of furniture solved everything! He can easily put them in himself and take them out.
Since I was on a roll I headed over to my daughter’s room to hang a picture (now that I am an expert at that!) and change the curtains. Her original curtains were on hooks, but it was pretty easy to just slide those off and and put the new ones directly on the rod.
So this Tackle It Tuesday was very productive and the kids love their new decor!
