My latest house project is complete. The guest room has gone from Green Lantern to Giraffe Chic. When we first bought the house 6 years ago, I was merely a comic geek and collector of all things Green Lantern, so our guest room became my Green Lantern Room. Since that time, however, I have developed a fascination for giraffes, and my collection grew quickly. Unfortunately, the two themes just didn’t work well together, so I had to make a choice. I though giraffes might be a little more pleasing to guests than the Green Lantern/superhero theme, so I chose to change the guest room to a Giraffe theme.
First I had to take down and pack up all of my superhero stuff (no easy task):
Then I had to patch up the walls:
Then I primed the room (the same day our new queen size sleep number bed arrived)
Then I hired a family friend to do the final repaint:
Finally, I redecorated in Giraffe motif:
I had to use the lamps and curtains we had around the house, for now. I have a bed skirt, new lamps and new curtains on the way. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
For those worried that I’m no longer a diehard comic geek, fret not. I plan to redo our basement and turn it into my comic book cave.
So, anyone know how to redo a basement?
