Update to Mr. F's Room~Finally!

I updated a few items in Mr. F's room last year. It broke my heart to rid it of the PB sail quilt! I did an inexpensive change of bedding, decorative items & a rug to make it more pre-teen than little boy. One thing that has been on my list was to add some decorative elements that would personalize the room to his style. If you have read my blog before then you may remember that Mr. F (my son) is an 11 year old, avid snow skier. I have had this phrase about skiing running through my head for the past year & I finally got it on the wall.

I bought the Cricut vinyl which you can purchase at Wal-Mart for about $10 for 2 pieces that were 12"X24". They come in assorted colors. A friend of mine owns a Cricut & cut them for me. All I had to do was pick the font & watch her cut it~it took about 2 minutes.

Here is the before picture (like the 5 gallon bucket & all the clutter?):

This is a picture of hubby giving me a guide, so I knew how to line up the letters. I definitely needed him for this project!

And here is my $10 update:

The picture in the frame is a photo of Mr. F. hitting a big jump this year. Here is a close-up:

Ski season is now over. Mr. F. will have a corner of his room in which to dream about next year's ski season. Don't we all need a bucketless place to dream?

*Mr. F still has his bucket, but a lot less junk as we spring cleaned his room this past week. Every drawer & basket has been organized. We found a great corner of his closet for the 5 gallon bucket:) As a bribe to get him to cooperate, he got to go to his favorite Mexican restaurant!
