Redesigned Rooms

     Since Sarah left for college, that meant there were some changes in the bedroom assignments. Lindsay and Courtney have been sharing a room since moving here at the beginning of the year. They both anticipated having their own space since then, even though they didn't have any issues when they shared.

     John and I decided to have Courtney move into Sarah's room and Lindsay remained in her current room. They have been loving spreading out their stuff in their new spaces. Rest assured Sarah is still welcomed here anytime! While she might not have a designated bedroom, she will be able to either share with Courtney or Lindsay during breaks and visits- all part of being a large family :)

     Over Labor Day weekend, we decided it would be a great time to paint each of the bedrooms to the girl's taste. Courtney had a clear vision in her mind for some time- pink, black, and damask. Lindsay needed a bit of inspiration and browsing before she came up with her plan. Their rooms are a bit of in the progress still, but the majority of the work is done. A few more artwork/photos need to be hung and ideally we'd love to get Lindsay a queen size bed within a few months because Miss Long Legs is often hanging her feet over the edge of the bed.

     Here are a few photos giving a taste of what the finished product will look like. Hope to take some more photos by the end of the week once we have everything hung up. I'll then create a new post showing their rooms as a whole.

 Courtney's paint job required quite a bit more work. We had to put a tinted primer over Sarah's grayish purple that was on the walls.

 Damask! We were so excited to find this large stencil at a local craft store.

 Courtney painted the entire Damask wall.

 Preview of the finished product. Big impact!

     Lindsay's room was a breeze to paint. First she selected a new comforter that served as her inspiration for her paint colors and how she wanted the room to look. I didn't take any photos of the base color, but it is a middle shade of gray.

 Lindsay also chose a large stencil to use in her room. She chose 2 vibrant colors of blue and lime green to color them in with.

Preview of Lindsay's stencil. She chose a different way of incorporating her stencil into her room that we will reveal later this week.
