This is the view from her bed. You have to pretend that the walls are painted a lovely yellowish called “Napery” or “Banana Cream” I haven’t decided which one yet. However, I’m leaning toward ‘Napery.’
In case you can’t tell, those are fairies in the pictures. I didn’t notice the pics are a little crooked, so just pretend they’re straightened out. You also may have noticed the random scraps of paper taped to the wall. Those are ’signs’ that periodically appear on the door, saying things like ‘please come in’ and ‘nobody allowed’ and ‘Daddy come in, but not Mommy’. You know, loving thoughts from our youngest girl.
I don’t usually do blue, but the walls came painted that color, and so we decided to go with a blue and yellow theme so as to support my lazy nature. Also, the flowers above the bed are not in a wood frame (it’s a silver), they just look that way in the picture.
My friend wanted me to post these pics after we covered the headboard in yellow fabric, (and by ‘we’, I mean my husband) so if you think this post is lame, well then, blame her. And I just want to say that for the record, recovering a headboard is something I have never even considered before now. I didn’t even realize it was within the realm of reality. Apparently it is.
But I also wanted a record of her room while she was still little, and to prove to the world that once upon a time, it was clean.
I will post pics of my oldest girls room (who needs a blog nickname - thoughts on that?) when her walls no longer look like they’re dripping Pepto Bismol. It’s a little overwhelming, but on the plus side, your upset stomach is cured just by walking in. Maybe I’ll do a before and after. If I remember. And if I get around to painting it before she leaves for college. Which I hope I do. Me love sentence fragments.
I am slowly getting this house put together. It’s fun to do, when you have a designer friend holding your hand every step of the way. Unfortunately, she lives in Utah and I live here, but there are ways of making that work. We have the technology.
Thanks for indulging me in a little record keeping. You may now return to your regularly scheduled activities, already in progress.
