Grand Slam

Grand Slam

This before bedroom was a little boy’s dream, if that little boy happened to be really into playing baseball. Or watching baseball, as 95% of the mural consisted of the spectators. Strikes two and three come in the form of the wallpaper border and overall dim and claustrophobic feel that were weighing this room down.

Alicia from Thrifty and Chic stepped in as a pinch hitter and turned it into a home run (oh, you’d better believe I’m getting as much mileage as I can out of these baseball puns!) and guestroom extraordinaire for her client. All told, the damage was less than $500, and that included buying most of the furniture! Score!

    Haha! My husband had this exact mural in his bedroom growing up and the border was in his bathroom.. Funny!

  8. We put that baseball mural in our little boy’s room in our first house in 1993. It cost $100, which was a fortune to us back then.

    One day while he was supposed to be taking a nap, he decided to peel of part of the wallpaper!!!

    I almost died when I saw it! We let the kid live, though. He’s 19 and going in to the Army soon.
