Once upon a time, I was pregnant with a little baby. The Hubs and I didn't find out the gender until the day of Baby K's arrival, so we decorated a neutral-themed nursery with adorable little lambs.
It was a simple and sweet little nursery. It really was...
Out popped Henry and Boom! Blue was the accent color.
Before we knew it, we had another baby - a girl. The nursery stayed the same (except for Henry's photos and such) since we once again didn't find out the gender. Let's just say, the cute-blue accent-lamb nursery-fairytale ended. The overall neutral-themed nursery just wasn't cutting it anymore. It, instead, had become more of a spew of little lambs/blues/pinks/hand-me-downs - ultimately it became a room with no direction.
It was time for something new.
After all, how much longer do I have before I can't make these sort of design choices? Miss. Eliza is already very adamant on wearing a dress every.single.day., I'm sure her "design" choices are right around the corner.
*help me* ;)
I gave my kiddos a couple of paint brushes and told them to take care of it...
Kidding, of course...well, sort of...
Okay, okay. They could only reach so high. I suppose it was up to me to get the job done and add those vibrant details (AKA super girly floral wallpaper).
Enter: Marie at 1 a.m. The most reasonable time to work on a home project is while the kids are sleeping. AmIRight?! Who's with me?!!
I kid you not that my neighbor arrived home from his third shift job and saw me working on this space from the outside. I heard him cough at one point, perhaps in an attempt to get my attention so that he could ask me what the heck I was doing. Ooooor....he just had to cough and I'm just paranoid.
Probably the latter.
<Insert blurry phone picture of #organizedchaos>
I finally finished the job at 2 a.m. Aaaaaand the kids promptly woke up at 7:30 a.m.
Eliza loved it and it made my heart oh-so-very-happy to see her "Oooohing" and "Aaaahing" over her new big girl bedroom walls. :)
I'm absolutely in love with this space. It gives me tingles every time I walk by it.
Oh and I just noticed that the mirror is nice and grimy. I believe Eliza was "cleaning" the mirror for me when I took this picture. Oh well, that's real life for ya', folks!
I can't wait to show you what I'm working on next. Hint: It involves chalk paint...lots of chalk paint...
Thanks for stopping by.
