Wish I was there, too!
When our two older boys left home, it was time for our youngest to move into the coveted big bedroom.
From very early days, his goal in life was to be a waiter in Hawaii and live in a hotel. And climb palm trees.
As his parents, we were totally supportive of this plan. His father, because he would need to visit his son for extended periods of time in the winter. And me - because it sounds a tad bit safer than rescuing people lost at sea in wild storms like his oldest brother, or ridding the world of terrorists like his middle brother. (Job descriptions may or may not be highly dramatized - mama's a little neurotic.)
Back to the actual point of this post, Junior has always had a Hawaiian theme for his room decor. His old room was Pottery Barn Kids, but he had outgrown that and was ready for something more teen appropriate. He had received a Hawaiian calendar each year for Christmas, so we decided to make a wall collage of the pictures.
That wall collage grew and grew, and soon went around his entire room.
It was sometime after the new year, when calendars were on clearance, so I went to one of the online calendar stores and purchased every one I found.
The possibilities are endless. A favorite sport, animal or destination. There seems to be a calendar for almost everything, even vampires, and the online place I shopped had calendars from years past for dirt cheap.
It was very fun, very easy and a very inexpensive way to give a room a makeover.
And just in case you need reminding on this fine Monday morning, Island Boy says....
