Ty is super-thrilled with his room. I wasn't too optimistic about how it was all going to turn out, but I must say, if I were a 9-year old boy (and a boy who LOVES animals, especially tigers), I'd be pretty excited about sleeping in my "new" room. That's what he calls it--his NEW room.
Here are the pictures. (Sorry, no "before" pictures to compare with. The wall colors were the same color as the ceiling--if you are able to tell from the photos--a sort of taupe color (rather boring for a boy with Ty's demeanor--orange is a much better choice for him!).
Ty's Tiger Room--finally finished!!!!
This is the wall opposite the foot of his bunk-bed. It took a lot of time to paint all the tiger stripes--I bought a stencil on-line from Jan Dressler Stencils--a very good quality product;
the tigers above the window frame are stick-ups
that I bought at The Dollar Store.
Tiger bedding ensemble--Ty loves his bedding!
The color of the wall that the bunk bed is against is
coal blue--a compliment to the orange fiesta.
Ty lounging in is new room with "Hobbes", his stuffed tiger.
Doesn't his tiger look real?
I bought these framed prints at a liquidation centre
over a year ago, in hopes of finally getting Ty's
Tiger Room finished.
This wall is just orange, to off-set the crazy tiger stripes.
I love these stick-ups. They fit perfectly above the window;
Ty says they are about to fight.
Their names must be Mitchell and Ty.
Good-night from "Calvin and Hobbes"!
