Don was giddy over the blue walls. I'm more of a pinkish sort of person...so we compromised. I get to use plenty of pink accents. The wall panels are functional, because they are actually sound absorbing. Our room has funky acoustics, we figure it's because there are no windows, just a patio door that leads to a deck. Anyway, it has major echo issues that drive us both crazy. We found an online video of how to make them. It's very simple, just take a 1X3 cut it into 18"X30" segments and screw together, insert foam, and cover with fabric. This was another frugal project. We had a few dollars left on our Sutherlands store credit bonus, so we were able to buy the 1X3s, they are only $1.69. The foam we had leftover from the dining room bench project a few years back. The material is actually a shower curtain that we had. It's from the same Shabby Chic collection at Target as our bedding. We even had enough fabric leftover to recover the bench seat and dresser lamp. We have a few other projects in the works for decorating the rest of the room. Did I mention that I LOVE cherry blossoms???? I used to live in the burbs of D.C. after securing a job following graduation. It was amazing to watch the cherry blossoms bloom and transform the city into an ethereal pink nirvana. I imagine Heaven will be filled with cherry blossoms.
