ORC Week 2 - Another Boy's Room Re-do

Nope, you did not miss my Week 1 ORC post.

The reason being simple, I jumped LATE into this game. In other words,  I joined only this week!

If you don't know anything about ORC, check it out HERE

But as they say, better late than never right? And because of my late entry and late planning, I hope and pray that I will be finished on time for the big reveal along with everyone else!

Ok, 'nuf about that. Let me show you the room we're working with...

This is my younger son's bedroom, and the picture above was how I decorated it when we first moved into the house. Only thing we did, was paint the window wall white (since it was orange before).

Then I re-did his room HERE, in 2012. And obviously, he was into Dr. Seuss at that time...


But as he grew, of course his tastes have changed and he has asked me to fix his room up already right after I did Sophia's Nursery ,also for the ORC , Here.

I procrastinated a long time as you see. And actually one of the perks of joining the ORC is that is gives you extra motivation to get things done. However, I think my main reason for procrastinating is this...

.. I MISS THE TIME WHEN HE WAS STILL LITTLE, and he's just growing up WAY TOO FAST! sniff... sniff..
Ok, since I made the point of not being "chicken" anymore , which I also wrote about HERE, I hope you'll cheer me on as I tackle another room!

Next week I will show you my plans for this space!


Have a Great Week!
