I love surprises!  I especially LOVE to give surprises!  Whether it’s a birthday party, a Disneyland trip for the kids, or redoing my teenage son’s room while he is gone on a backpacking trip with the Boy Scouts.  I had 4 days…4 days people…to redo my son’s room. 
When we moved into our home 8 years ago, we I allowed the kids to picked out their own paint colors and decorate their own rooms.  So needless to say Hotrod’s room was long overdue for a redo.
He picked out the border and then picked out the two colors based off two of the cars in the border.  Not bad for an 8 year old, if I say so myself.  The red, because it was like Daddy's Chevelle and the blue...well, I think he just liked the blue.
I wanted to spruce up his room.  Brighten it up a little bit.  Here are my thoughts for his room.
**Notice, I just want to do subtle stripes on the wall, similar to the ones in the upper left hand corner, not the bathroom vanity. 
I'm thinking several different shades of gray with a pops of red throughout the room.  The other problem that we are facing is storage and the lack of storage that his room has. 

I was so excited to get his room done, or at least as much as I possibly could, before he got home.

Stay tuned for all the updates!
