Here are the before pictures:
He's looking at the race car board. I knew he'd love it. The blue night stand was a weathered plant stand on our front porch that I spray painted. Paul gave him the alarm clock because he uses him phone over the clock anyway. And I got the lamp on clearance for $8.00 at World Market. The lamp shade had a black and gold New York skyline on it, but a little fabric fixed that.
I never got a picture of the magnet board without him in front of it. But I just covered the frame in wrapping paper. Cut some vinyl to make the roads and parking spaces. And cut 'beep' 'honk' and 'zoom' with my cricut and glued magnets to the backs of the cars and he's got his own little race track that doesn't take up floor space!
I took the 'BABY' blocks off his shelf, and replaced it with 'Beep!' (His favorite car related word.) I also added a picture of him. I painted a frame I already had and then put car/truck/train paper on it.
This is maybe my favorite new addition. I was garage sale shopping one morning a couple of months ago and came across a house that was selling one of everything. Including one, just ONE of EVERY hubcap ever made. She must have had 200 and I promise you, no two were alike. I found three that I thought had character and kind of matched. She wanted $5.00 each. How she thinks she can sell that many unmatched hubcaps, I'll never know. But by the dirt, spiders, and cob webs I endured during my hunt through them, I'm likely the first person to ever buy any. I offered $5.00 for all three and she gladly accepted my offer. A little warm water and a rag, then some spray paint, and this is the end result. A stop light. Garrett likes it.
