But now it's done! Hooray!
Here is his new room:
His room is very long and skinny with tall, slanted ceilings. It was already painted this color when we moved in, and we were not allowed to repaint. The bed is an IKEA Kura bed, which originally looked like this:
I painted it Bittersweet Chocolate with a bristled brush, which makes it look like it's the actual color of the wood grain. I then used scrapbook paper cut down to fit on the blue panels, and Mod-Podged it on. I love how it turned out!
The map is HUGE. It's 6 feet wide! I got the vinyl lettering from a mall in the store and we placed it on there carefully last night. It was hard, but I think it turned out great. I am planning on getting some crown molding from Home Depot and cutting and placing it on the sides of the map so it looks like a frame. Eventually I might also put pictures of missionaries we have had in our family over different countries (Sparrow has two uncles in the field right now, one in Paraguay and one in Australia.)
The bookshelf is an IKEA Expedit. He has bins of pajamas, underpants, socks, and a toy bin. The shadowbox on the wall is the outfit he wore when he came home from the NICU, his baby bracelet, his name tag that was on his incubator, the two pictures I had of him till I got to meet him for the first time (he was 3 days old before we first met), and a Valentine the NICU nurses made for him.
Here is his south wall. It has two large windows, but luckily this map fit perfectly. It might be kind of weird having two maps on the wall. This is the one I found at Women's Conference this year; it has every temple in the world on it, including ones that are currently under construction. I bought it from the BYU bookstore for $6, but there is a website here where you can buy it or find out where it's sold near you. Sparrow loves to look at it and tell me he is going to Hong Kong, China on his mission. (I don't know where that came from.) The bookshelves are IKEA Bekvam spice racks, painted Bittersweet Chocolate to match the room.
Here's his closet. We hung the organizer up to give him an opportunity to help with laundry! He also has his growth chart, which I love because it moves with us wherever we go, and his picture of the temple and of Christ.
Edit August 31, 2012: I updated Sparrow's room just a little bit - we finally got the "picture frame" up over the map! Check it out here.
