University of Michigan room


This is what I have been doing for the last three days. The shrine to University of Michigan - since I won't let Austin paint our bedroom maize and blue - we had to paint the boys. I am so sick of that yellow paint! I have made 4 trips to Lowes in the last 3 days. Three coats of yellow paint and white ceiling paint and blue "M" paint, we are done!! Almost. Now I just need to make the curtains and bedding and put up some blue shelves, but we are finally getting there. I'm really excited that their room is going to be decorated! And I have to mention that I am really excited about the M that I did. I created it myself using 8 1'2 x 11 sheets of paper and one of our thousands of UM shirts for reference. I even measured and used a level! So, that brings us to my new coolest level in the world. The best $14.97 I have ever spent!! It is laser and also has a thing that sticks it into the wall. It is seriously going to change my life - no more crooked and falling off shelves and frames! I love this tool, now I just need a nail gun and a miter saw!
