The next step in doing the boys room has been completed. Not only did they approve, I had their eyes lit up and got some rather odd comments - sadly my ability to understand teenage boys was a skill I left behind in High School. The doors according to them are "Sick!" and they are "Stoked" - I can see that all that English homework is really paying off...
So the doors were very shabby, I looked into replacing them but when I toyed with the idea of spending close to $200 on new doors, which will look just as shabby when they boys are finished with them, I decided it wasn't a good investment.
Then I was cleaning up the Xbox games and I just started looking at the case and bingo, how about I make them into game covers.
So if you remember way back last year when I made these for my boys based on their favorite game Skyrim
I checked if this was still the game of choice, they decided that they wanted 2 of the Elder Scroll games and even though it's only a pc game they wanted Guild Wars 2, so that's what I did.
The best part is, these games are all based on ancient times and the nicks and scratches only enhanced the finished look (Score one for Mum!)
After cleaning the wardrobes I decided that I needed a warning on each door - my joke on them!
DIY Delight or Disaster? Searching for 5 different fonts, fiddly weeding not to mention "tips and hints" from the boys to get to say Delight. My boys love this, I am currently the coolest Mum going...that will change quickly I'm sure! The photos are really disappointing that room is so dark, lighting is a huge issue in there.
While I think this is only something that would be coveted by other gamers, what do you think?
Thanks for reading,
