There is so much to show you here.
The house was basically untouched
for around 50 years.
This was taken last summer before they bought it.
There was lots of dark paneling and the rooms
were quite closed in.
This was a big move for my daughter's family.
Her girls had lived in the same house since birth.
They were a little anxious about the move.
Mom & Dad did their bedrooms first thing.
I think I will take you through the house
room by room.
We will start with Lulu's bedroom.
She chose the SMALLEST BEDROOM upstairs
because she likes small spaces.
Here is the room
Paneling around the whole room
and a built in unit that took up one whole wall
of the small space.
Here is the room with the wall unit removed
and drywall installed.
The wall behind her bed is painted pink and has
SPARKLES in it which show up
when you see it in person.
Her Dad built her a special light fixture
using barnwood and recycled jars.
See the "door" in the ceiling?
That has a pull down staircase that goes up
to a LOFT-which will be a study room for her.
Her Mom and I painted the desk
and chair for her here.
It was the first time I used Annie Sloan chalk paint.
Auntie Mimi painted her name
on an old window frame
using a Paris theme.
Lulu put the boa around it all on her own.
Do you see the phone on the desk?
That is the one I spray painted here.
And-just a peek at a couple of sweet details.
So-There you have it.
A room fit for a sweet pre-teen girl.
She loves her room and
I LOVE HER!
Even if she does have hydrangeas growing out of the back of her head
