Room in Progress

Here are a few pics of the activity last week for Little Chic's room (which she loved when she got home from camp, by the way). It's not totally complete, but every day we work on a few more details. We'll have to see how faithful I am at uploading pictures so that I can post the pretties ;)


The room started out something like this...


...and it's shaping up something like this...I was a little wary about what we were gong to do with dark brown and hot pink, but it's pretty cute after all. I did put my foot down and refused to paint the walls solid pink and brown, but I bought the bedside table and painted it and also painted the top and knobs of the white dresser. The wall color is kind of a tan and today I put some brown and pink paint details on the walls. We don't have anything hung back up on the walls, but it's getting close!

I was a nervous wreck when I was putting chocolate colored paint on this white dresser! I actually had to paint it twice since the first time, I did not sand and prime it like my girlfriend told me to. The next day as I was measuring the top for a piece of plexiglass, the paint scraped right off! I ended up peeling the entire top in one whole big piece of paint. So then I decided to sand and paint it like I should've in the first place!

This is one of my favorite things...I love storage bins of every kind! I'd say I may be addicted to them. Lucky for me, they came in dark brown.



In Little Chic's words, "The other room was just so....well, babyish, and this new one is all sophisticated and stuff."

Looks great! I did the same thing painting our stair railing last year. It took FOREVER to scrape all of the paint off when I discovered it was peeling.

I love the brown and pink. Very grown up! I also like your idea of painting the top of the dresser. Gives me an idea....hmmmm...

I need to get busy and post pictures of Rebecca's room makeover. :-)

Okay - we're ready to see the final product!

That really does look great! Very striking. I love the facelift a new color scheme gives.

Sounds like a typical home improvement project, too -- full of unforeseen adventures!
