I said -back in May- that I would re-do my great nephews’ bedrooms. 7 and 4.
I sat with them individually, to talk about what they wanted. They gave me an explosion of ideas–! WoW! O k a y—what a surPRISE!
I took in their ideas of color ~ when their “friends come over,” ~ and what they don’t like about their rooms right now. I threw out ideas, they expanded on them—it became a really fUn consultation!
Friday, while their parents left for an impromptu anniversary weekend, I began working on Landen’s room. O.M.G. 4 years old. “What is this? Why are you doing that? What are you doing now? What’s that for? WHY are you doing THAT?” And on, and on, and on, and on. . . and on. . . Machine gun-style questioning. (Remember John Candy being questioned by Macaulay Culkin in “Uncle Buck” ??)
I patiently answered, thinking he’d be bored with it [all] in 20 minutes or so. No. Not so much. All Friday. All Saturday. All Sunday. Still this morning. Luv my little guy, but—I’M EXHAUSTED. He wore this great auntie OUT!
Remember this crazy storage shelf-thingy I showed you in May? I found it at The ReStore during their Earth Day ½ price sale.
$20 $10. This piece launched the whole design.
