Trading Spaces - Kids (or something like that)

So, I'm sure you've all seen Trading Spaces on TLC... somewhere out there is a Trading Spaces - kid version. My boys have been intrigued with it... wanting a new bedroom, etc. So, while they were away today, I pulled my own Trading Spaces... basically just a surprise for them. Here are the pics...

So, I rushed home and began painting. I was nervous and then decided that if it was horrible I could always repaint the wall. I learned to just go for it and give it a try! Not perfect, but fun.

The sheets are filled with footballs, soccer balls, basketballs, baseballs, etc. The blanket is fleece... lightweight and very cozy. Unfortunately, there was only one of the ball themed fleece blankets (draped at the bottom of the bed)... I think that I'm going to use it to recover their throw pillows. It was a bargain at $4... love Target!


My boys collect things... now they each have a "treasure chest" to store them in. (only $6 at Target)!

The boys were thrilled with their new room. I let them "find" it when they returned home. Pepe found it first and ran to get Finneous to show it off... Baby girl is a little bent out of shape...
