I'm not sure what's come over me lately. I'm cooking (with yeast!). I'm decorating. No one can believe it. Especially me!
But, since I'm doing it, I might as well share it.
I told you all before about Ashton's room and how we bought a new bed for her. Well, in case you don't know, it's impossible for me to do anything halfway. So a new bed meant new bedding, meant new paint, meant decluttering, meant new curtains.
Are you with me?
Here's what we started with:
Before she had the comforter that's on the bed in this pic, she had a double bed with a really nice white comforter. It had big flowers on it just like what we painted on the wall. It looked great and I was so proud. Then she wanted more room, so we downsized to a daybed (that we found on Craig's List) and had to get new bedding. It was cute when we bought it, but it didn't last nearly as long as we had it. (I was so ready to get rid of it!)
Here's what we have now:
We knew we wanted to upsize back to a double bed, so Ashton picked out the comforter set and we got to work. We found the bed and painted it white to match the rest of her furniture. Then we started painting her room.
I don't mind painting, but what I do mind is cleaning the brushes and rollers. And when you paint over the course of 3 days, there's a lot of cleaning to be done.
I am so thankful that Joey helped with the painting, though. He painted the entire ceiling in about 45 minutes. And he hates to paint! (But he loves me.)
Once the room was painted, we put everything back in it's place. I had ordered Ashton some curtains to match her new room and she was so excited! She's been wanting curtains for a long time, but I was just too lazy to get any. I also ordered a big purple shag rug (which you can see the corner of in the bottom left of the pic).
Overall, I'm so pleased with how everything turned out. Ashton absolutely loves it, and that's really all that matters.
