As you know, we have an old house that we are trying to fix up. When we bought the house, the girls were frightened of it. Heck, I was frightened of it. The upstairs has the really old wide plank wood floors. There are gaps and dips galore in it. And it was all painted this grayish color. Floors, celings, walls, trim – EVERYTHING was grayish greenish.
And there are only 2 bedrooms, so that meant that the girls would be crammed into a room together. Oh, good times, good times I tell ya. But when we first moved in, they were scared of sleeping in their room, so most of the time they slept with us. Well, that got old real quick, as you can imagine. So, our number one goal was to get that room all girlied up as quickly as possible.
Unfortunately, I didn’t take many before pictures of the room. I’m real bad about that! And I can’t seem to find the one or two that I did take, so you’re just gonna have to visualize the grayish greenishness, m’kay?
But here is the finished product. We’ve been here over a year and I’m just now taking pictures of their room.
Those are peel and stick decals. Don’t even begin to think that I am talented enough to stencil or free-hand something like that on the walls! My mother-in-law bought the white wooden letters for their names.
I just love their built in shelf/drawers!
Here is the afghan I made for Hannah before she was born (it’s the green and white one) and the pink one is the one that sweet mamaw made for Katie when she was born.
Here’s Katie’s shelf with some of her trophies on it.
This room is my favorite in the house. The house is really old, so it will never be perfect, but I’m amazed at how things like paint and a little bit of decorating can make such a huge difference!
