The boys share a room and both agreed to have their room the OU room. it has taken me quite a while to put this together and I am STILL not finished but its looking so great I wanted to do a room post for them. I did Riley's a while back and to be honest that was easy because her room is always in perfect condition. She rarely leaves a toy out of place and NEVER leaves clothes on the floor. I really hope this carries on with her because I LOVE IT! The boys on the other hand are completely opposite. They couldn't care less what their room looks like, in fact I am sure they think I am the one messing it up when I put things where they belong. Nevertheless I have managed to put some touches on it that I think they will enjoy and I KNOW my husband enjoys!
In a few months when we save up we are building these, but until then our boys share a bed and are quite happy. Here is THE room!
*sorry the pictures are all over the place, I don't have the time or the patients to mess with it ;)

In case you are wondering here is a step by step of the mural and pictures to show the progress.
I painted the mural myself using a projector hooked up to a laptop. We found the image we wanted and I traced it onto the wall with a pencil. The "sooner's" script was found online and Ryan downloaded the font, typed the word and we projected it onto the wall as well. Then I took a tiny paint brush and started painting.
