Kami's Room Makeover

When we moved into our house we painted the upstairs room blue because my younger son and daughter were planning on sharing it.  2 weeks later, the son decided he was old enough to be in the basement with his older brother and our little princess was left with a blue room.  Fast forward a year.

My mother was visiting a few months ago and we decided it was time to finally repaint the room to a more girl friendly color.  Out came the paint chips and we ended up with a soft yellow that is soft, warm, and that matches her bedspread.  (Kami is not very pleased at this point that I am not painting her room pink but I appease her by promising there will be lots of pink in it :)


So off to the paint store we go and a few hours later we have transformed the boy room into a soft girly yellow room.   And that is as far as it went.  (Don't we just look stunning in our painting garb)


So now that my Mother is visiting again, we decided we should finish up what we started.  First off, time to repaint some picture frames to add that pink I promised.  The girls had so much fun painting with their grandma, and Josie had fun pulling out all the pots and the pans while everyone was to busy to bother her.


Today we hung everything up, including that adorable curtain that my Mother made at the last visit and I never got around to hanging.  (Sad, I know.)  Kami loves the little jewels that hang from it.  I ordered the vinyl letting online and love how cute it looks over all of her dress-ups.  (And I am glad my mom was here to help put it up as I have never worked with vinyl before but she is a pro!)


The other side of the room has her cute little book canopy and her newly painted pink frames.  There is enough fabric left from the curtains to make a little pillow that will go in the book area.  My mom is tackling that WIP so that I can get to the final one.


A second bedspread to match the first.  I have the fabric bought, the idea planned, and just need to get cutting.  It's on next weeks list and I plan to do a little tutorial for it too.  I always get so excited to start a new quilt, I can't wait :)

  2. What a great color! Would you mind sharing the type and color number? We used to have that color in the home where we used to live and don't remember just what it was. My husband wants to repaint our family room that color.

    Kami's room looks so cute. I'm sure she must be real proud of her pink picture frames. :-) I look forward to seeing the new quilt that you will be making for her. Happy Sewing!
