the in-between phase


At the end of January we finally decided that we probably shouldn't wait any longer to start the painting project on Mikayla's room. At the time of our decision, we had been in our *new* (sort of) house for 9 months! Nothing like putting off a project you could say. We purchased the paint for Mikayla's room back during the Memorial Day sale (one word: rebates!), but even that was 6 months ago!

Now, please don't hate me because I painted over this beautiful mural ("before" picture), but it's just not my style and so I knew it had to go...eventually. I was fine living with it for however long I did, but I was ready for a change. Although...if you had ever visited our first house, you will soon notice that both Mikayla's room at the old house and her room at the new house is now the same after the paint job was complete.

We're still in the "in-between" phase right now as we have lots of decorating to do to make the room more complete, but at least the hardest part is done! The next step is adding the chair railing...or whatever we decide to do. Let's just hope it won't take another 9 months to get finished!

Mikayla was so excited to help!

It's going to be great!! LOL about the curtain rods and no curtains ;) When we first moved into this house I needed window treatments everywhere. But I don't know that we'll do much in the new house.

You sure have made progress...it looks nice so far. We have to repaint Jamison's room too. Can't wait to see it all together.

So at first I couldn't believe you painted over that mural but to see the final project is so much better. Love the colors! Looks like a great big girl room.
Blessings!
