    Default Painting my son's room

    My son wanted his room painted and asked if I could stripe it up for him. He is 14 and has seen them twice and he is a huge Wolfgang Van Halen fan. So I opted for the blue striped pattern. I put up on the wall the Frankenstraat squiggles and the arrow from the Kramer that use to be hung up at the Orlando Hard Rock because we have seen the guitar so many times. Now I was going to put some black stripes 5150 guitar style on top of the blue but he is undecided. He likes it this way but may like the black also. So he goes ask it on the Links and see what you all say. So we are asking Black stripes or leave it alone?

    It looks great - but, I have to admit, I'd be tempted to add the black stripes myself - just to give it that added 3-D WOW effect!

    That is cool that your son is into VH etc. The wall looks great! Good job.

    Do the black but just a little if your son is ok with it. It is his room. And don't be too worried or attached to your cool artwork there. Like most teenagers into music that wall will likely end up being partially covered by posters and stuff and that should be ok with you. lol

    Looks good!

    Actually he has already declared nothing being hung up on the walls except for Van Halen stuff only. I have a couple of old VH guitar replicas I might hang up and he has the frame I made of of the things he got from Wolfgang during the 08 tour.

    I like how you used the 07/08 vip bandanna as the background for the framed memorabilia. What a great tour!

    Looking good. I think it's cool your kid is so into VH and wants the WVH theme. I bet it's a real joy setting that up for him. Proud papa.
