Bye-Bye Pretty Pretty Princess

This is how the front room looked when I bought my house 3 years ago.

This is how it looked last week. A Saturday without plans is a dangerous thing in my house- I'll just make up a project. I was finally tired of my pink office, and ready to re-decorate. That's the same desk & table set I've had since my first house. My pink papasan chair from my pink bedroom, and leftover wedding stuff sits in the orange container. Some cheapo shelves and a dog add the finishing touches.

Let's not forget the desk chair I've had since college in Austin, circa 2000. Or the lovely angel painting H gave me for our first Christmas together. Or the random Christian wall decoration I received as a house warming gift, hanging in a random left-behind nail in the wall. I'll find a good home for it one day, but I just stuck it on the wall to get it out of the way. ;)

I assume some little girl loved her room, with the ballet shoes, stars, pink crown and flowers. It really didn't bother me, as I'd obviously been fine with it for years.

However, H had been nagging me to re-do my room and make it look "grown up". So Saturday- we headed to Home Depot and I picked out some color samples.

I spent Saturday afternoon prepping the room by cleaning out a few things, wiping down the walls and taping off the chair rails and crown molding.

Sunday after church, I put primer on top of the pink since I'm going with a lighter shade over the bright pink.

GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: Mom is coming over today to help me finish with the painting.

We have two rooms in our house that belonged to kids. One is blue and has a Noah's Ark strip along it, and the other was purple (now it's yellow and purple). Both have glow in the dark stars on the walls and ceiling.

The architecture of this room is so pretty! I love the window and the light! I can't wait to see what it looks like when you are done!
