    Default a huge cricut project! (Miles' new walls)

    I started this awhile ago, and it's finally finished. This is going to *eventually* be Miles' new room, when we gain up the courage to move him to a bed. For now it continues to be his playroom.

    I painted the walls, and seperated the two colors with a curvy grey road.



    Then, with the help of a crafty friend and my cricut, we cut every car, truck, semi, bus, etc. that we had using vinyl. When we were finished with that we thought some clouds and a sun were needed.

    I want to get a personalized street sign (Etsy) to go on this wall above the car/truck. It would say something like Miles Drive or something along those lines...









    It's also on the other wall which I didn't get a good picture of. You can see the mailtruck starting on that wall in the photo above.

    I LOVE how this turned out. Miles does too. These pictures don't do it justice - it's so much cuter IRL! Miles is obsessed with buses and airplanes, so he is just in love. He keeps pointing them out, saying "bye bye bus, bye bye airplane" whenever we leave the room. It was definitely worth the time it took!

    Oh, if you haven't seen, this is the bedding we bought for when he moves to the bed. We also got the matching lamp, and I'd like to put some solid curtains up (red maybe?).

    Oh my goodness. My son's room was flooded with all the rain we had, and then it got mold, so we had to have a wall torn out and replaced. He initially wanted just a blue room, but when he realized his sisters were getting the nursery redone, he was sad that the brown wall would be gone and decided on brown on the bottom and blue on the top. We were going to put in a chair rail in white. Probably still will. Caleb is more into ships. I was planning on using my cricut to cut out ships to be on the horizon in shadow.

    Your idea has me thinking though. This is so beyond brilliant. What a perfect room, and one Miles can grow with for quite awhile.

    Great job!
