Anyways, after living with this color for a year and still not loving it, I asked Lily to go through the paint chips and pick a color she liked...
This is it "Pink Cherub" Benjamin Moore.
I was going to take down her stuffed animals off the shelves to start painting, but realized I also hated the stapled valance,that was dusty/dirty and here when we moved in, and the fact that it couldn't be washed.
Everything came out of the room and I took the curtains apart to resew them
(Hey, am I going Green?)
I also had her edit her animals and she decided to get rid of three bags worth of toys for her school Fun Fair. Let me tell you-that was a BIG accomplishment! She knows where each animal came from and each attached memory.
Mr. B bought new longer shelves and new wood brackets and knobs. I set to priming and painting them at 10 pm! Oh yes, I'm a night owl...plus its uninterrupted time.
Here are the new shelves and brackets without the knobs and curtains. Plus a nice soothing pink color on her walls.
I then added her curtains and she helped me put up all her animals on her shelves.
I still have to put up some white sheers-just haven't found the right length, but here it is last night, before bedtime.
She was a very happy camper and made her bed first thing this morning! I think even her fish looked happier and was smiling. Now to find the perfect rug...
