Union Jack

February 08, 2012

This is my youngest son's room.  This is the after picture, AND the before picture.  You see my youngest is 15, soon to be 16. If you have never experienced a teenage boy in your house (this is my third) you haven't experienced the carnage they can do to a wall.  There were so many holes from posters and pictures and then moving of said posters, then moving again that I thought we would have to replace the sheet rock.

 He went to summer camp in Minnesota for a month this past summer and I thought it was a perfect time to redecorate.  He helped before he left by taking everything down and moving everything out for me.  I proposed the idea of the Union Jack flag for the focal wall.  (He is a big Beatles fan.) I didn't want to go to all that work for him to hate it.  He agreed that it was cool!  So I began my trasformation from a latte colored room (sorry I dont have those pics, and trust me you wouldn't want to see them) to this color.  It is Behr Parchment Paper.  We searched for the Union Jack and the proper way to paint the design.  After taping and more taping, I began painting.  It took me about a week from start to finish. He Loved it!

Admiring my finished project.  Look at that pile of tape on the floor!

I think this would look great on his bed!  What do you think?
