MORE BOYS, BOYS, BOYS!!!!!


More FABULOUS boy ideas coming your way!! Yes, boys are fabulous too and you should tell yours today!!! Whether you have a budding artist at home or not, all boys like to get messy. This is a great project for your boys, plus ultimately you want it to be decor in their room so with a little guidance the final product is easy to achieve. Start with canvas that is stapled to wood. You can get them at any craft store in a variety of sizes. The bigger the better if you've got a lot of space to fill. Pick a quote that is meaningful to your son but short. Have a plan in mind...stripes, solid, abstract, etc. for the canvas if you'd like it in their room. Only display paint colors for him to choose from that will coordinate with his decor. Sit the pink out and he will choose it to be funny!!! DO NOT USE BLACK unless you want a solid black background or for the writing. Black used in this project is messy. The paint is regular craft paint from the store, you can use sponge brushes and your fingers!! This project is very rewarding for all ages, its not about perfection though, these are not meant to be exact. Let your son be the artist!!!

Industrial silver ladders are a great way to display your sons treasures, whether they be rocks or their girlfriends pictures. When I use them in a clients teenage room their is really no need to worry about securing them to the wall. For little boy clients, I find a way to secure it. The industrial ladders are also great suspended from the ceiling which allows you or your son to hang all kinds of great stuff from it. Have fun and be creative, your son is so worth it!!!!!
