Dr Seuss Play Room

We have lived in our current house for almost 4 years. Our bonus room has never really been decorated, and has been the man room/craft room/dump room forever. So with the kids getting bigger, I decided it was time to make it into a functional room!!! Here is the before picture...

 Above is when we first moved in and it was the man room... Lovely dead bear on the wall. It is actually a pretty big room, so I split it up. The half by the window is the "play room" and the other half is craft area and office. 

 I decided to go with a Dr. Seuss theme! So, I borrowed my dad's projector and projected the pictures onto the wall, and traced them with a paint pen. Similar to what I did for the construction room. 

 I painted cat in the hat, Thing 1 and Thing 2 and my husband made me the growth chart out of some old barn wood!

 My awesome book shelves are.............................. vinyl rain gutters!!! They were less then 10 dollars at home depot! My husband cut them for me and screwed them into the wall, they work PERFECT!

This is also some cute board screwed to the wall with clips glued to them. Then I cut some vinyl for my kid's masterpieces! 

The kids LOVE the play room! My husband completed the room by making me this awesome toy box!
