Right now some of you are asking yourselves, "What the heck is a Dalek?"
Others of you, are immediately thinking I am the coolest freaking mom in the world. Those of you thinking this also know why bow ties are cool...and are eagerly awaiting November 23.
And for you, this is a bit of a spoilers post of Little B's room makeover. Or maybe just a teaser.
I have a lot more Doctor Who themed things planned for B's room. He turns 12 in a few weeks and while he's away at scout camp, I figured it would be the perfect time to transform his room into a the ultimate Whovian hangout this side of the T.A.R.D.I.S.
This room makeover has been in the works for a full year. It has taken me that long to finally get it all figured out.
The dresser started out like this:

And I totally wasn't feeling the TARDIS in a dresser. The dresser felt...really more...like a DALEK....it was that much of a decorating stumper, by the end, I really wanted to EXTERMINATE it!
Instead, I hit it with Valspar Metallic Silver spray paint. Two cans worth...
I attached spray painted foam balls to the front for the true Dalek, look. Danger Girl asked if I was going to stick a plunger on the top...ha! I decided the lamp would have to suffice for the Dalek eye ;)
A few of you who pay attention to detail may be wondering what the heck is up with the floor. It looks gnarly!
As I was rearranging B's room, I noticed this weird ridge and flat area that was very different from the rest of the painted hardwood floors. So I decided to pick at it, pull at it...and discovered that it was PAINTED VINYL flooring. I had a serious WHAT WERE THEY THINKING moment...when I pulled it back further:
Now I have yet another project to tackle....
