Change is Coming....(A Little Sneak Peek)

The bedroom makeovers have begun, but we're being very pokey about it! However, I do have a little sneak peek to share with you.

All of the furniture (and stuff) from the guest room that will be Joy's new bedroom is moved out into the center of the loft floor upstairs. We took down the border, mudded and repaired the walls, and primed it.

What you'll see today is just the primed walls....the primer is tinted a similiar color to the actual color that the walls will be. These pictures make it look a little more blue, when in person, it is really more aqua.



That's a glimpse of the bed that will be painted white, that used to be mine as a little girl....the one Joy will be using in her new room.



Here's the color the walls will be painted in Joy's room.....Pool House (Valspar from Lowes). It's hard to get the true color of it to show on here...it's one of the exact colors that is featured in her bedding actually.




You saw her bedding in a previous post, but here's another look at it.



Here's a lamp that I found at Gordman's. It was already a great price, and I used my 20% off coupon and got it for right at $11.00 lamp and shade.



Hopefully we'll get more accomplished this week or at least the weekend. I'll keep you posted! I'm ready to get it done!

Joy looks so excited about her new room. Love her smile. I will have to show off this room to my daughter when you are all done with everything. Maybe it will inspire her to atleast clean her room.
Hugs,

It's looking good, at least you got this much done. I can't wait to see it finished. My little Rissa loves the peace sign stuff too. It's all so 60s. Making true the saying, everything that's old is new again.
