Summer's Room Revealed!

As promised, many weeks ago, I am finally revealing Summer's room re-do.

Here she is slaving away with the painting. Yes, I do believe in child labor, especially when it was her idea in the first place!

Of course, she didn't do ALL the work. Mommy had to go back and
cover all the spots she missed!
But she did a great job overall. I figure it's a good investment of my time
to teach her how to paint...esp. when we decide to
re-do other rooms in the house!

We made her a nameplate from a piece of fence board and scrapbook paper.

Ta-da! You were worried about that blue being too shocking, weren't you??
{I admit, I was worried!} But I think it
actually worked once all her stuff was put back in the room!

My mom {the artist} made her the curtains and the fuzzy,
zebra-striped blanket on the bed, again- Summer
picked the color scheme!
If it were left up to Mommy, I would have picked a color
scheme that included light greens & pinks, and maybe some soft lavender...
but Summer was not having any of that- NO WAY.

I have to admit, she did a good job redecorating a room that
she now LOVES, and that's all that counts, right?

Way to go Summer... I think it's great that you gave her the freedom to do what she loves. My parents always let me paint and decorate my room exactly how I wanted... I think that is why to this day I am not afraid of color and changing things up a bit!

I think its cute! That is great that she is learning how to do that now... and you are right... if she loves it, then that's what matters!
