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! Smiley

Before (colored on walls and all):

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.

You did a fantastic job and You are very lucky to have a husband who is on board with redecorating!  That was hard work for him I bet!
  As for the kids grabbing the ladder on the bunk bed? Couldnt you just put the ladder on the other side of the bed instead?
 Never mind!
Great job!

Thank you! Smiley  It was definitely interesting to do up.  I had to kneel on top of the bunkbed to be able to do the painting! Smiley LOL

This bunkbed is built in such a way that you cannot move the darn ladder.  I wish we could.  Unfortunately, it is stuck right there next to the window and no matter how much I tell the kids not to touch the curtains, they always grab hold of them.  I might leave it as is for a while and see what happens.  I just hate having it so bare like that.

I'd have to say that I'd be scared to wake up to a giant spongebob staring down at me....  But it's a great idea and I love the other little spongebob touches Cheesy

Nice job. About the window... you could put up a self stick window decal to give the privacy without the curtains.

that is sooooo awesome. I LOVE THE JELLYFISH..... it is missing the most important thing tho..... WHERES PATRICK? lol

and as for the window what about just a roman blind or a ventitian blind roman would be less wreckable and if u attatch it with velcro they wont ruin it theyll just pull it down and maybe as a valance over the top some fishnetting u can get in party stores and put some toy fish n sea shells n stuff on it ?

either way i love it Tongue but it needs patrick hahaha perhaps a patrick rug LOL

OH QUESTION... whats with the whole popcorn cealing thing in the usa? whats the point of it? im jus curious coz it sounds like a pain in the butt to get rid off?
