While you were away………… in a personalized way

My husband does a yearly or bi-yearly hiking trip and I take this as a mini craft adventure to decorate, paint or create!  This year it was time to re-do my children’s rooms.     The KNKZing makes it so easy to redo their rooms with minimal cost! I had decorated both my kids rooms in vinyl when we first adopted them.  I was able to re-do both their rooms in two days (including repainting a desk).  Grace originally had a flower bed garden scene with a large tree.  Here is her old design.


I wanted to personalize her room so I decided to try something new.  I took a photo of her doing what she loves, dancing.  Here is her photo.  I scanned 

I transformed this photo of Grace into this! 

I continued in this method for all the dancers in her room and added the mirror and ballet barre!  INSTANT transformation with NO painting!  Here are the rest of her walls.

Next was my son Yoseph’s turn! His original room with an Ethiopian theme since he was adopted from Ethiopia!  Here is his original room design.

Yoseph wanted to keep the Ethiopia theme but add planets!  The file came from SVGCUTS.com   Also I didn’t want Yoseph to be left out with the personalizing so we made him an alien!  I added glow in the dark paint to his aliens as an experiment and it worked like a charm!  Here is his finished room!

Thanks for checking it out!

Love hugs and prayers


p.s. Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Those dancer silhouettes are AMAZING. And the aliens are quite creative! I’ve thought about doing a silhouette of my 3 grandchildren to go above the bed in our spare bedroom. You may have just inspired me to get it done.

  2. Fantastic, Carol!!! What a great job on both rooms and how wonderful that the decorations reflect the kids interests so well. Those children are so blessed to have been adopted by you!!

  3. Carol, I love what you have done to transform your children’s rooms. Very personalized, and I’ll bet the kids just love them. I loved it when my mom let me
    pick out my own color scheme for my room but this is just amazing. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all you great creative gals on Team KNK for sharing with us. You too Chad. It is appreciated.

  4. Wow, First I must say how blessed your precious children are to have been brought into such a loving, creative home. And to not only be allowed to be themselves but to see themselves reflected everyday on own their walls. What a gift you all have been given! Second I thank you for reminding me of how awesome my Zing is and that with a little imagination (or a lot in your case!) I can do so much with it. Thank you for sharing!

  5. Wow how beautiful that you let your children’s likes to be displayed in such a beautiful way. It is hard for many to remember that these are the character builders not the decorator ink stamp. I am truly into your style!!! Thank you for really really inspiring so much more than vinyl!! Happy Thanksgiving..

  6. You did a lovely job with your redecorating your children’s rooms. How large are the images in your daughter’s room? They look large. Did you cut them in one or more pieces.
    Have a good one,

  7. oh what a wonderful job you did on those rooms….i bet the children loved them and cannot wait to show them off to their friends.

  8. What a terrific way to update their rooms for their personalities without much trouble and expense! Thanks for sharing!

    • Absolutely! I don’t think there is anything I haven’t been able to do with vinyl that I have imagined!

  9. you did an amazing job….both the new and the old decorations! Thanks for sharing the your pictures with us.
