He requested a room with dinosaurs and baseballs, so with new paint, (yes, thats a red ceiling!) some easy DIY projects, and smart shopping, I was able to create a room that doesn't feel like a typical themed
The finished room! A red ceiling gives it that pop of color and adds visual interest without overwhelming the space.
