    Wow some of those shelves I really liked. Wish I had some in my daughters room. Then when she moves her stuff out I’d have another spot for sewing and quilting stuff. LOL

    I love the Mario shelf idea! That is going to be a fun project for me! Can’t wait to start…right after I do my map dresser for my older son. Oh, and I learned how to make chalkboard paint using non-sanded grout…so yeah, I’m pretty much excited to do lots of remodeling in all the kids’ rooms using lots of chalk paint!

    Oh, and Sorry, Carla, but they never move out…ever!!!!! lol Just kidding. I’m so glad my oldest son stayed as long as he did (till he was 21, he’s now 22). I loved him being here, and now I miss him. It’s really strange to see his younger brother in his room 🙁 I have 6 more to go, (16, 10, 10, 3, 1, and 2 months). I think it’s safe to say that at 41 years old, I’ll be fully retired by the time they all do move out! 😉
