She gets it honest.
Often she will say, "Can we change my room around today?" And while I would LOVE to every time she asks, we're honestly running out of ways her room can go.
However, for awhile now, we've been talking about changing the color.
She asked about it this weekend, and since Menards was running a sale on paint, I said, "Sure, why not!"
Her room has been purple for about 3 years now. It's also in the last 6 years we've lived here been green, and then blue.
We like to change things up around here!
This is the purple BEFORE.It was purpley (sp?). Really purple. It was ok for awhile. But she was kinda growing out of it.
She'll be 12 in January. Yikes!
Her tastes are evolving quite rapidly. It's all about Paris, and fashion, and movie stars.
I guess I can remember what that was like oh, so long ago.
Since her bedding is adorable, and full of colors, we decided to stick with a color that matched that.
Shy Turquoise from Dutch Boy was what we came up with.
It was a pretty quick project. I trimmed out the walls, and she used the roller. Evan played in his room with Lego's the whole time.
Worked for us.
This is how it turned out. Some walls look darker than others since there was an abundance of light when I took the pictures.

I have to say, I love all the details in her room.
Even the poster wall, that I remember drove my mom nuts. It's making me feel the same way...but after all, it IS her room.
I like it. She likes it. That's all that matters, right?!
