We are moving? Of course you do, I have only mentioned it like 10 times. Which seems crazy because this has all happened relatively fast and yet I feel like the actual MOVE day has taken ages to get here? weird? Anyway, I spent the last 4 days working on getting the kids bedrooms ready to move in. The colors in the rooms previously were awful and I really wanted to do something fun for the kids since we haven't ever really personalized their rooms before.
All 3 of our girls share a room. I wanted them all to feel involved in the process of decorating the room, but that can be hard to do with many differing opinions. Not to mention that I am a control freak. So in true controlling mommy style.... I scoured the internet for room decal stickers, looked at hundreds of them, and then showed the girls the 5 choices I liked best and convinced them that my favorite one was the best choice! Guess what? It worked! ALL 3 of them agreed on it! And they were super excited about it too! So these are the stickers we chose:
The picture of the flower decals I found showed them on a green wall and everyone liked that too, so as you can see, we went with it. But I didn't want the whole room green because I knew Young Man C would want a green room. So I told the girls we would just do the flower wall green and pick a different color for the other 3 walls. I brought home 2 blue and 1 purple swatch, and again, amazingly they all agreed on a blue one! So what do you think?
I think it turned out really great! I can't wait for the girls to start living in it! I'm pretty proud of this room as it involved many hours of painting and then the application of 70 stems, 70 flowers, 10 grass sections and 15 butterflies! Yes, Yes, hand over my mother of the year award please! Little E was hanging out with me today while I did more work on C's room. She likes it.
The Young Man's favorite color has been green since the day I met him, so it is no surprise he requested a green room. He asked for it to be the color of his school soccer team sweatshirt. It is a bright, cheery green so I obliged. His room wasn't really photo ready today, but I wanted to share it with you anyway:
You can see the blue painters tape hasn't come off yet, I still have a tiny bit of touching up to do. But don't both rooms just make you feel happy inside? They do for me and it helps to keep me excited about this move even though it's a LOT of work!
***I MUST take a moment to give a shout out to my wonderful sister and brother-in-law who gave up their Saturday to help me paint! Couldn't have done it without you two! I also have to give HUGE props to my hubby who has been holding down the fort and taking care of all the kiddies while I have been MIA. Love you babe!***
Anybody have any fun kids bedroom pics they want to share on our facebook page? We would love to see them!
