a sneak peek

Okay, the room isn't totally finished, but there's enough done to give you a sneak peek of the total bedroom makeover. I wish I had before pictures so that you could see the shade of pink we were dealing with before, but since I don't, you're just going to have to trust me if you have never seen for yourself, it was bright. I thought for sure I was going to have to prime the walls first to cover up that pink, but I decided to try Behr's paint plus primer to see if that step could be eliminated. Would you believe that it worked like a charm! That room, so very, very pink before, is now like a cloud of pale pink cotton candy, easy on the eyes and tranquil to the soul.

With a big thanks to our friends Jeff and Adam, the dollhouse bed is now a permanent fixture of our household. Marianna, exhausted from a day of trying to help me paint but never actually being allowed to, fell asleep on our last run of the day to Home Depot, so she has yet to see the bed up in her room. That should be a fun surprise for the morning.

But even before the little room-dweller's eyes have taken it in, here are the pictures of her new abode for you to enjoy.

How fun!! I wish I could be there to see her face when she discovers it for the first time... enjoy that one! (You did a great job and it appears in record time as well)

Poor Adrienne- It looks like you stole her curtains! They match the new room so well, though!!

Angie said...

I know, I did steal them...but when you think about it, the room is really hers too, so I'm just transferring in advance =). The match was too perfect for me to pass up.

Angie, it turned out real cute! I like the table and chairs there until you add Adrienne's bed.

I love it! It reminds me of a friend's little brother's room. His bunkbed was an old stagecoach. It took almost his whole room, but I thought it was the coolest bed ever. I guess that's what happens when you grow up with a dad and granddads watching old westerns all the time. ;)
PS Did anybody ever try the mac and cheese recipe? Just wondering. =)

Oh, how cute!! I want one! I'm sure I could curl up by that window, but I don't think my DH would want to climb a ladder to go to sleep.

I guess some things just aren't meant to be! LOL

Your girls are going to love their new room. Y'all have done a great job! Enjoy!

Great Find! Definitely a little girls dream bed. Even my 9 year old thinks it's the neatest bed ever!
