I finally got my new camera cord in the mail. Remember? The Unidentified Device?. Well – I can finally unveil LilZs new room, But first? The OLD Room. And then? One half way through picture that shows the colors together perfectly! Click on any of the pictures to see the larger version.
Before I show you the FINAL results, I want to point out a few things.
1. LilZ has a Rubbermaid Garage unit as a Dresser. This is NOT because we don’t love him. We do – I swear. What you need to realize is we have NOTHING but crappy furniture at this phase of our life. The “Not buying anything new because we want a house dammit” Phase. His dresser? Is much better than our 80s reject black lacquer and gold trim set we have in our bedroom.
2. LilZ used to have a bed frame. He asked a few months ago if he could just have his mattresses on the floor. No frame. I had my bed the same way in college and MrZ had his like that as well – so we know the joy of a no-frame life. Again – LilZs lack of a bed frame is in no way a sign that we don’t love him.
3. LilZs old room was covered with thirty plus “cute animals” postcards stuck all over his walls. He loves anything that has a cute puppy or kitten on it. MrZ and I? Were the same way when we were kids. I didnt hang all of them back up (The Holes! EEK!) but I did hang all of his cute animal posters back up. I think thats enough cuteness for him.
4. There are no pictures that include the “post-painting” ceiling. There is a reason for that. I’m lazy. And Short. And I only have one step ladder to reach tall places. Blah.
5. The Hillary Duff and the
Olsen Twins Mary Kate and Ashley posters are new. I bought those last night with the help of the kids next door. (I told you I was borrowing neighborhood children while LilZ was gone). I wanted to get him a Lindsay Lohan poster – but I couldn’t find one. The kids said LilZ will SCREAM! when he sees his room. I hope so. What do you think?
