A couple years ago, we transformed my oldest son's room. See it here
This week we decided we were going to transform my youngest son's room. We knew we wanted to do Spongebob and at first we had thought we'd do the whole room yellow and make it look like Spongebob did when he was the padded room to Mrs. Puff's insanity in "Doing Time". Then we decided we'd just do one wall yellow and as Spongebob, and then do the other walls blue for the ocean and put jellyfish on them. THEN my hubby decided that we should sand the popcorn stuff off the ceiling, paint it bright yellow and have the ceiling be Spongebob and all the walls be the ocean.
I don't think he realized just how much work that would be. But he did do all the sanding and all the painting of the walls. Then I walked in and painted the jellyfish, Spongebob's face, and plankton!

FINISHED!! YAY! I do have to find some curtain type thing. The boys are awful about grabbing curtains on the way up the ladder to the top bunk, though, so it is hard to put something there without it getting trashed.
