Now, as you are looking at all these pictures, keep in mind the rectangular brown plaque that is in both the before and after shots is a name plaque. I photoshopped the name out to protect the innocent...
Anyway, pretty awful, right? Well, one day last winter I went into Home Depot with the little one herself. To occupy her, I made the mistake of giving her some Disney paint samples from Behr. Click here for the image she latched onto.
She kept begging for us to paint her room. So, since this architect mommy has connections, I went to my Sherwin Williams fandeck, picked out some lavenders to purply pinks and ordered some larger paint swatches for her to look at. These are the colors she picked out:
I added to the palette an accent of Valspar Weathered glass, since I had a free sample of it and I knew it went with the above image as well as the music box from the Tinkerbell movie. If you're not familiar with that music box, here is the replica that sits by the little one's bed:
The weathered glass color was used on some of the artwork: the picture frame hairbow holder and the origami butterfly art that I've shared with you over the last couple of weeks.
Anyway, Memorial Day weekend, we broke out the paint brushes and rollers. We also took the opportunity to rearrange the furniture so that the room hopefully functions a little better--there is much more floor space for her to play in this arrangement. This is where the project stands now:
Hope you enjoyed the glimpse into our home!
