Overhaulin'

For my daughter's birthday, she got to pick out a new comforter. I did stipulate that it had to go with the purple walls even though she'd rather have them painted. I just wasn't up for a painting gig this summer. She picked this:


I did not, however, think through this little plan. The new bedding would require replacing the lamp, clock and artwork, removing the princess rug, repainting a huge bulletin board, changing out the curtains, and sewing valances. Oops. She got to use a birthday gift card to pick out a few matching accessories, and now her bed looks like this:


I did manage to sew a little fleece cover for her Ariel chair and make some artwork for the walls!


While I haven't gotten to the "sewing valances" part, the room is taking shape nicely...except for the clutter. Needless to say, it's about to get overhauled! I am reducing the clutter so that she can keep it clean (or mostly so) herself because I am seriously tired of having to pick up all the stuff in there. So, for tomorrow, my plan is to reduce the amount of "stuff" in her room to a manageable amount.

Isn't it amazing how one project leads to 400 others?

It's a little sad, though, to do all this. A lot of what's in there, the knickknacks and such, have been in her room since her nursery, or at the least, since she got her "big girl" room before she was 2 (before her little brother was born). I'm not sure I'm ready for her to be growing up so fast!
