Mom started cleaning up the new babies room, painting each wall a different pastel - green, yellow, pink and purple.
She stenciled little butterflies around the whole room. The ceiling was painted light blue, with puffy white clouds - with one special cloud shaped like a heart. That heart would be right above the babies crib.
Little butterflies hung from the ceiling by little wires and thumb tacks. The most adorable fan was hung from the ceiling. Anyone who saw the room was in awe of how cute and fresh it was. It was genuinely the perfect fairytale room for our new baby girl. I may have shed some tears when it came time to paint over this heart. Okay, I cried. I tried to get Austin to do it for me but he declined.
You may remember this picture from the previous post - but I wanted to share it with you again so you can see how her cute dresser matched the whole color scheme of the bedroom.
I chose to go simple and paint the walls a very light grey and keep the trim a crisp white.
Okay - back to the guest room! While painting the doors white, I got bored and decided to jazz it up a bit. I taped off the rectangles in the middle of the doors and painted them grey like the walls and the rest of the door white. First I painted the actual bedroom door because it's open most of the time, and if it came out horrible it wouldn't really show much...
At the same time, Roo was kitty sitting Darth Claudious - my grandkittybaby for her older brother and his wife. They gave a big high five on how the guest room turned out! Kitty also loved to watch me paint. That roller was highly entertaining for this little cutie!
As you can see, the door turned out fantastic - so fantastic that I went ahead and did the closet doors to match.
We chose to put the kids old dresser in the room so our guests could have somewhere to put their things. I also set up the old costume shop computer so guests could have Internet access. I moved framed pictures from other places in the house onto the shelves and I used the candles that previously lived in the living room as decor. At this point there wasn't any art on the walls. And this room needed some more color pronto!
Below is the art I chose to put in this spot. It looks a little squished right now because we had to move the dresser over a bit when Austin and I moved into the guest room after our bedroom was flooded... a whole nother blog post...
Another room done - get ready for the next because it's SO AMAZING I think you're gonna flip. Meanwhile, feel free to come visit and stay in our pretty new guest room! See for yourself how comfy it is!
