My Daughters Room

As I have mentioned before, we have  been working on redoing the kids rooms for a while now and finally after much work, sweat and tears (and many nights of the kids sleeping on the couch).  I am announcing that two of the rooms are completely done!  Woohoo.  With the third room not far behind.  We The hubby tore out the built in desk and wainscoting, re-mudded, smoothed and painted the walls.  Painted the trim white.  New light fixtures were put in to replace dated brass and cut glass ones and new carpet was put in a couple days ago.  We REALLY needed the new carpet our house still had the original carpet that the builder put in it almost thirty years ago. Gross, I know.

 Next comes the fun part moving all the furniture in and decorating!  YAY!  I am so excited to share all of the rooms with you very soon, but for now here is my youngest daughters room, what do you think?  Fit for a princess?!:) She thinks so!

We used this argyle wall tutorial that I found on Design Dazzle;  all you have to do is leave off the dotted line to make it a harlequin pattern.  The colors on the wall are Valspar's Snow Paw and Salmon Bisque.  I can't remember off of the top of my head the name of the blue color that we used on the ceiling but,  if you really want to know just ask and I'm sure I can dig it up somewhere.

  12. What a cute room!! I especially love that you painted the ceiling. I did that in my son's room and added vinyl stars(space themed room). Totally makes the room! Visiting from Domestically Speaking.
