I am so tired of white walls that I simply had to go with a color in Sam's room. I can't wait until I get every room in this house painted a color. I hate white walls! (Paul blames HGTV for my new love of colored walls. My mother-in-law said that if I paint the living room "pumpkin" like I want to, that she'll vomit on the carpet the first time she walks in, guaranteed.) When we made the toyroom the toyroom I took a big jump (for me, at the time) and painted the one sheetrocked wall pink, yellow and green pastels. (Different panels of the wall. I didn't just throw paint all over it willy-nilly.) But now....oh now since HGTV has gotten its claws into me....pastels just aren't enough. I need color!! Bright, vibrant color. My mom painted her dining room brick red and a gorgeous yellow that I just LOVE. So my rants about color aside.....here's Sam's room:
The vibrantly blue bookcase:
That bookcase has been mine since I was a baby. My Poppy made it for me. Until Friday, it was the same white that it's been since he painted it when he built it.
The Tow Mater poster that was used as a consolation prize since he didn't get a highway painted around his room. I'm still on the lookout for some Route 66 signs. That shouldn't be a problem since we live on old Route 66. It's just a matter of getting them.
The metal on his desk and the wood parts of his chair are going to be painted Lightning McQueen red the next time I get some days off.
