Going, Going, Gone...

For a year now Madison has requested a room makeover. I have been dreading the thought because of her beautiful wall my Mom and I painted about four years ago. Part of me was excited for the new task but part of me was quite sad to think that my little girl was no longer little and now a tween. So for her 12th birthday she got what she has been wishing for. A new room. Out with the mural and in with new bright, bold, colors.



So long horse and girl.



Hello Pink! That's right she wanted her girly colors to shine forth. She picked out the paint colors and I got to work. She wanted a bright pink wall and polka dots. She wanted a zebra print bedspread. And a big body pillow. We had so much fun picking out the colors and decorations for her room. The lamp is so cute. She has talked about wanting one since the time she saw one in her cousin Megan's room.


Madison also wanted a new dresser and vanity. The old vanity she had was my Great Grandmother's from Kansas. She wanted something small and fun. The bed came from her Aunt D. That was also my Great Grandmother's frame that came from the farm in Kansas.



The black wall was a surprise for her. It's chalkboard. She had no idea I was going to do that. If you know Madi you know she loves to doodle, and draw on everything. Her walls were so marked up that as I was painting I kept thinking that I needed to do something for her. I saw the board on the Today show and decided to try it. We have to let it cure for at least 3 days before we can use it. So I will get back to you on whether it was a good thing or not.




And Finally We Are Done! So cute, so fun, and so exciting. Happy 12th Birthday Madison! I LOVE YOU!
