Decoupage glue I love you

Two trends in blog world, and maybe the real world too has been maps and wallpapering dressers.  In a quest to make the boys room more colorful, boyish and interesting I combined the two trends and came up with what I think is a fun bookshelf.  The jury(the boys who sleep in this room) are still unsure about how they feel, but I am thinking it's just what the room needed.

 Boring Target bookcase

Map wrapping paper purchased here.

 New and improved bookshelf with the help of a sponge brush and Mod Podge.

Holden said "enough with the maps already mom!"

I couldn't resist one more shot of color, I mean, I had one more sheet of wrapping paper to work with.  I promised to be done. 

One more picture that has nothing to do with maps, but is cute none the less...for Jacky and Gina.
