Map Room: Before and After

Well, the room is not "finished," but the painting is and we are definitely enjoying it for school! I still need to make curtains and pillows and hang up wall art, but that will have to wait until the summer. Unless some free time opens up! ha!


Darin added the molding around the map, changed the paint color and put up the scripture. 
I love this verse above the map. It looks even better in person. 

We decided to have the blue be the accent wall and painted all the other walls "Gobi Desert." Appropriate, huh? 
When I was a little girl, I used to sit in the little school desk in my dad's art studio 
and color pictures while he did real paintings. It's very special to me!
 BEFORE - Lots of patching, sanding and priming!

AFTER : We sit climb all over this futon to do lots of "Exploring Countries and Cultures" reading. 
It's pretty plain for now, but someday there will be time to jazz it up. 
We love the new colors!
