 It’s July. Woo Hoo.  Break out the slip and slide and the popsicles.
 
It’s also time for camp for many kids and you know what that means?  Surprise projects.  Every year we get a couple “Camp Makeovers”.  These amazing parents think, “while the kids are away, the parents will play…in their room!” 
This year, Harrison’s mom called to say he needed some updating.  This cool teen wanted a more rocking vibes for his space and mom wanted to deliver while he was at band camp. Where tos start??  The ceiling!! We painted his ceiling a flashy silver metallic and then painted dueling electric guitars with flames (nothing says rock star like flames). 
 
 Dueling Guitars

We painted his existing loft bed black (dad made it) and made a bench with cubby storage below. We will call this “Jam Central”.  We also added a custom corner desk. We had custom graphic bedding made.  I love it because it has flaming guitars and CDs.  We used his existing guitar collection as décor.  The coolest touch to this room is the canvas we made as a special tribute to his band.  His band is called “Emergency Release” and they got that name while riding the bus home from school (can’t you just picture them saying, “What should we call the band?” ….and then seeing the sign at the back of the bus and saying , “Emergency Release”

The room turned out totally rad and as a bonus we added some special touches to his sister’s room too!
