I have the hardest time gearing up to show projects that I complete within my own home. I don’t have a really good reason for that…except that I never feel the pictures really capture the feeling of the place I call “home.”
And that may be the only explanation you get for why I am showing my daughter’s mostly-completed room makeover a mere 5 months after it was completed!
Here it is today….
And here’s what we started with!
OK, so the pictures above are already a bit of a work-in-progress
But her room really was almost always that messy! (sorry, dear)
Everything in the room was boring beige, and that was a hard thing for my dear daughter to bear…especially considering that this is what her room looked like in our previous home!
Bright, huh? She picked out that IKEA-look-alike furniture all by herself. I never was that crazy about it, but hey, it was cheap.
She was dying to do something with her room in our new home, but she kept pitching ideas to me that included words like “red & yellow,” “retro,” and “bubble chair.”
When she finally adjusted her vision to something that included “vintage,” “aqua,” and “white,” then she found I moved a lot faster. My children eventually learn that I get a lot more motivated to work on their projects if they’re what I want to do anyway!
If we’re all very lucky, I’ll come back and revisit the individual projects that went in to her room. But for today…just pretty pictures…with the understanding that there are still a few things to do in here…like get more pictures up on the walls!
