Yup. It's really that bad. And you can't even tell how badly it smelled by the picture. I'm guessing the people who lived in this house before we got it had about 700 cats. All in the house. All peeing on the walls. Seriously.
And there is actually a window boarded up in the closet. I'm not joking. They boarded up a perfectly good window to make a closet. There was a wall on the opposite side of the room with nothing on it that would have made a perfect closet. But no, they chose the window wall.
So here is his AWESOME redone room:
Never mind that his bed isn't made perfectly- he was napping when I was taking the pictures. Here is the opposite wall. How cool is this?
Here are some of the "in progress" photos. The painting was basically done, but the trim wasn't up and the carpet wasn't in.
Did you notice a little pig hiding next to the closet? Yeah, that's Wilbur. After all the camping mural was painted my son decided that he wanted Wilbur in his room. Silly kid. So there is "shy" Wilbur hiding on the other side of the closet door. My mom and her friend Amy did the mural and they did a wonderful job! Here are some of the extras that make his room really special:
Just an old fishing pole that was here when we got the house. I hung some picture frames from it with pictures of our California vacation. Very cute!
This was one of his birthday presents 2 years ago from my mom and dad. My dad made it (okay, how awesome is he?!)
