Phew! That's done!
The walls are one shade lighter than my room. The closet doors in the pic are painted with black chalkboard paint. The back of his entry door is painted black, not chalkboard though. The trim is pure white.
I told the boy that he would have to clean his room this weekend now.
Do you know what he said to me?
Why? You messed it up.
I guess the dumbfounded deer in the headlight look scared him more than one of my clever mom quips.
Or maybe the fact that when I regained my senses I calmly told him ok and went outside and brought in a trash can and snow shovel.
But he is now cleaning!
