Okay so here we go…it has been a while I know since I have updated this thing so be prepared for a couple of posts!!! First up is Lily’s room Her room used to be a guest room that we coined the “Sesame Street” room…why you ask? Well when we had the room painted I had some green bedding and wanted to have a beige room with a green accent wall. Well when I came home from work and saw the colors I almost died! The beige turned out to be a bright creamy yellow! So we had a yellow and green room for a very loooooong time. It was the room in the house that I hated to show people because of the outrageous color scheme! So I was so pumped to paint this room to shed this major embarrassment!
Now it is Cotton Candy Pink from Sherman Williams….SUPER GIRLY! Her crib and changing table is all put together. The nightstand (that will go next to the rocker & ottoman) is painted pink and my mom and I put the bookshelf together that we got from Ikea. Looking at the closet you can see that I have been a busy mommy getting some adorable outfits. My mom found a bunch of my baby clothes to try on Lily. The dresser that is in the closet was actually mine as a baby. When I was in high school my mom had it painted to a distressed look and it will work perfectly for extra storage.
Next up on my list is finding the right window treatments. I have been taking my time on this, as I do not want buyers remorse. I just ordered her butterfly mobile last night from Pottery Barn Kids and cannot wait for it to come in. I will probably order the chandelier soon too, completing my shabby chic look. I am thinking of doing one of those vinyl decals with her name and place that on the wall behind her crib. We still need to hang the shelves above the changing table and hang pictures above where the rocker will go…. it is really starting to come together!
Often I find myself walking in and peeking at the room. Sometimes I go in and just stare at her things or go through the clothes imaging her in them.
So here is the before painting:
And here it is painted!!!
