I wish I had taken pictures of the girls' bedroom before this weekend, but picture if you will: kind of small, all the walls were painted a stormy, depressing, bluish-gray, not many pictures up on the walls (because I have been planning on repainting since we moved in last year!), and an ugly blanket hanging up over the window to black out the sunshine that persists at 10:30pm during Alaskan summers.
So it pretty much looked like a dark cave.
Garrett and I spent yesterday repainting the room a very light aqua color, I put up some bright-and-happy $10 black-out curtains in the room, finally got some pictures hung up on the walls, stuck glow-in-the-dark starts all over the ceiling, and hung a glow-in-the-dark solar system (that Garrett found at a thrift store) above the girls' beds.
It's no color-coordinated scene from Pottery Barn catalog, but I kind of like it that way.
Just lots of bright colors.
Very Mary Engelbreit-esque!
(And goes with all the color in the girls' mod-podged Mary Engelbreit drawers.)
The only things left to do in order to complete the girls' bedroom~
Order some poster-sized pictures of my girls to frame and hang above their white dresser:
And paint the old rocking chair that sits in the corner (I claimed it from Grannie's barn last year all covered in bird poop!)
Now, what color should I paint it??
