It’s been a busy summer! You may have already seen our bathroom reno, or my older daughter’s bedroom facelift. Today we’re moving on to Maggie’s room (she’s the six-year-old).
This bedroom was the last room in our home to have the original paint colour (from 11 years ago). It started as a guest room, then became the nursery for Frannie, followed by Maggie, who has been in there ever since.
Here are a few “before shots”:
Maggie selected her bedding from Target, and while at first she was drawn to the patterns with horses, etc. I convinced her to choose a pattern that would grow with her, as I don’t plan to redo her room for several years.
She knew she wanted pink walls, so we grabbed several paint chips to bring home and look at with the bedding, and I gave her a few suitable choices, leaving the final selection to her.
We considered changing the girls’ flooring (they still have carpet) but it wasn’t in the budget so we gave it a good cleaning and will keep a change on the list for the future.
I had the bright idea to move her dresser into the closet, which I did before I thought to grab the camera for the “before” pics, but it’s definitely helping with organization “after”.
Here’s what it looks like:
And that, dear readers, should be the end of our home renovating/redecorating for 2014. Thanks for following along!
