For DS's room at home, I am repainting this weekend (same color, needs it badly!). I'm moving around his furniture a bit, but leaving most of his stuff in it. Actually, he doesn't have a lot of stuff on the walls, never cared, never changed anything for years, etc.
He went to Cooperstown in 6th grade. A few years back he pushed all the pins they collected onto a board in this room. As per usual, it's never been changed. He probably wouldn't even notice if I took it down.
However, that Cooperstown experience was fun, and all those pins are pretty cool. I kept his ring, and "official" photo of the team, with some other candid photos. I was thinking it would be nice to buy a lapel pin shadow box to display all the pins in, some of the photos and ring. I thought it would be a nice decoration for the wall, and a place to put this stuff. But is that too queer to display boyhood things like this....especially since i'm not sure he even care anymore. I just hate packing it all in a box. I did take away his yearly participatory swim trophies since he was 5 and just left some of the more current and nicer ones from different sporting events...champion game trophies, high school, etc. I really don't want this to be a tributory room, but it would be nice to have some new stuff and some "old" stuff so he will feel like it's still his.
