So here's the before. I didn't do a very good job photographing it. It had pink upper walls and a mint green bottom half. Her bedding was those colors too. As my roller went up and down over those childlike colors a sad realization washed over me. I see her growing up so much...that little girl sitting on the horse was like the last of the little little girl stuff. At night I sometimes lay in bed and freak out a little over what's to come. You realize next year is junior high. OH MY GOODNESS!
Okay so we went dark. It wasn't the original plan, but we all love it. Just look at the surprised look on her face. I thought it might be too much, but surprisingly it wasn't. It totally warmed up the space and created such a cozy bedroom for her. It actually made me hungry as I was painting the room. It looked just like melted milk chocolate. Don't ask the color, because we color matched it with her bedding. Isn't modern technology amazing?
So glad that's done. Mission accomplished! I've been a crazy person lately. Projects galore. Does anyone else feel slightly overwhelmed...like there isn't enough time in the day?? I personally could use an extra 4-5 hours! I've never been very good at the balance thing. Any ideas on how to maintain some sanity?
Have a blessed day.
