#5 Enjoyed every moment of it
James said: 'Elliott absolutely loves Toy Story so while I have all the time in the world at the minute, I decided to just give myself a little project!
'I have no experience in art, I enjoyed it in school and did well although that was a while back now! I've picked up a pencil every now and then but nothing major.'
#6 Both the father-son duo loves Toy Story
'I've wanted to do something in his room for a while but always been busy with work so it's been nice to spend time at home with the little one and do something like that.
'I loved Toy Story when I was younger and now Elliott loves Toy Story too and I just wanted him to have a dream bedroom really.
'First, I found a few images online of the characters and drew the outlines of the characters' bodies and lettering on with pencil.'
#7 All the effort was worth the struggle
'I then went over the characters with a black sharpie.
'Next, the lettering at the top was painted and then the sky was painted, leaving the white parts for the clouds
'Finally, I painted the characters on the wall and finished off with outlining the characters again to make sure they stood out.'
#8 Elliot loves everything bout his new room
'I'm happy with the result. I had an idea of how I wanted it to look but executing it took longer than I thought!
'Elliott loves the wall! He points the characters out every time he goes into his room now.
'Only downside is that it's become a distraction for him at night time - he likes to have lengthy conversations with them now before he sleeps!'
