Bedroom Remodel

10:08 PM

When I painted these squares on Avery's wall a little over 2 years ago, I swore that, as long as we lived in this house, I would never paint over them.....



Just like I always do...I changed my mind. After all, Livvie was going to be moving out of my bedroom to room with Avery, so of course they had to have matching bedding, right? And, the matching bedding had to be accompanied by new painted walls, right?



So, we began on Wednesday, and said goodbye to Avery's pretty fun walls...




Avery was adamant that she HAD to help me out, so she got all dressed up and 'helped' me prime the walls.


She had lots of fun painting letters all over the walls... It took 2 coats of primer to cover all of those squares up. And, wouldn't you know it....I didn't do it right! Look who had to come in and finish up my mess...


Yup, I guess I didn't paint up high enough, thick enough, and what ever else I did wrong... oh well...

The next morning, Avery read Daddy some stories as he started painting the real color on the walls!


It's called Floral Medallion, but I think it looks like bubble gum pink! I just love it!

After 2 coats of the pink (and Thanksgiving dinner) Daddy was back at painting the top of the walls... I suck at 'cutting in', so I stay out of his way...


So, after that was done, we bought some trim to paint a burgundy color, and put up between the 2 wall colors. We did that all on Friday, and on Saturday night, Daddy put up the trim and it was finished! Now all it needed was some decoration!!!

So, here is the room, in all of it's glory. Not 10 minutes after it was decorated, it was messy...again...

Before and After

Those little things above the trim are some flowers I cut out from the wall paper border. I just taped them up to see if I like them or not. We think they look kinda tacky...





Avery's favorite thing in her new room...the bulletin board to put all her school works of art!



So, there you have it! This is what my family did over Thanksgiving! Thanks mom and dad for watching the girls so much for us! It was a nice and much needed break from the day to day tasks of parenthood!
