Dylan's Sports Room

In 2010, Dylan's bedroom looked like this...



The thing is, he never really cared that much about cars and trucks.  In 2010, when we changed the room from a "jungle" theme, he didn't have any strong interests, unless we wanted to paint cookies on the wall.  About the time he turned 4, that changed.  Suddenly our house was filled with every kind of sports equipment you could think of, and we were playing hockey in the living room and football in the family room!  

Because we are on top of things (NOT), we just recently changed the room to a sports theme.

(Dylan still has this thing about wanting white on his bed, so that is the same.)

It started with me buying a few things at Target...

A hamper that you "shoot" your clothes into... how genius is that?!

I already had the sports "Dylan's room" sign.  I bought the bins and small canvases at Target in the $1 section!  SCORE!  


Now, there's sports balls flying through the clouds. (I really need to buy some colorful pillows to jazz up the bed a bit).


We got the bobble-heads at games.  I got the chalkboard scoreboard at Target (also in the $1 section!).

Jim made magazine covers for the walls.  Aren't they adorable?!



They are almost as cute as the decorations Dylan made for the room...

I'm not too good at decorating, but I like to see the imaginative ideas that other people come up with. The sports balls flying through the clouds is just genius! I love it!
