A couple of months ago, I set an ambitious goal for myself. I wanted to do a complete bedroom makeover for my fourteen- year old son while he was away for summer camp.
I had to move everything to the middle of the room so I could paint. I wanted a soft gray color and really loved the look of Sherwin Williams’ “Online.”
It ended up being more blue than I expected, but that was a happy accident because my husband and son love it.
Now I just can’t wait for his new curtains to arrive and get put up. I know he’s going to love them because they’re blackout curtains.
After two fun-filled weeks at camp, free from responsibility and chores, I greeted him and almost immediately afterwards said I couldn’t believe the condition he left him room in (true story!) and told him he needed to clean it right away.
As much fun as it was to plan and shop, the best part was, of course, seeing his reaction and knowing we’d made him a place that’s almost as special as he is.
