Hello! Thanks for joining me for my first ever Makeover Monday! I am so excited to share with you every week, something I am making over in my home. I will start with our little girl’s “Big Girl” room, and our still-yet-unfinished-after-2.5-years bathroom! Yes, you read that right. We started renovating and updating our house about 3 years ago, and it is still not finished. What can I say? Babies and weddings can be very costly and time consuming. So in an attempt to complete the house (and give me something to write about) I give you my first of many Make-over Monday!
Week one: Reese’s Big Girl Room Makeover Step 1: Paint Walls!
So a few weeks ago I got this crazy notion that the bright green paint in Little R’s room, wasn’t appropriate for a big girl (all of 2 years old,) and decided that for her Birthday next month, I was going to give her a bedroom makeover to signify her graduating from baby to full-on little girl. (Which happened way too fast mind you.) Thus, paint was sampled, fabric was chosen, and plans for new pieces of furniture were made. . . Her birthday is in less than two months. . . I have a lot of work to do! So today we are working on the first step; painting her walls.
I loved the green paint we chose for her as an unborn, sexless baby (we kept it a surprise) and still do, but for some silly reason I decided it needed to be lighter. I’m honestly still not sure it was the right decision, but I think I will like it more once the room is complete.
Unfortunately, I can’t find the before picture with the first green we painted, but here is a before the remodel pic. Definitely an improvement thus far!
And the “Afters…”
You’ll have to excuse the little “ghost” at the bottom of the pic. She was so excited about her “new room” I couldn’t convince her to leave. She pulled the bedspread off and was putting her stuffed animal to bed.
