Weekend Project

This weekend Erik and I tackled a project that I've been wanting to do for a couple of months now - paint Keziah's bedroom! What other colour would be perfect for a little girl's room than PINK! Erik did all the work while I made sure the kids were happy and Micah stayed out of his way. Micah did get to help Daddy a little bit though :)


Here is the finished product. The pink is pretty dramatic actually but I wanted a warm pink rather than a cool pale pink. I think the room looks girly but also fun. I'd still like to hang up some things on the walls to finish it off. I'm not sure how well the bumper pads go with this new wall-colour (they worked better in Micah's room) but maybe I could cover them in a different fabric...




Me & Keziah in her new pink bedroom!


Yesterday we tried to get a good picture of me and the kids -- easier said that done!! This one turned out pretty good...

Well, Micah is hanging on my arms as I type, so I'd better go play with him for a little bit before naptime!

I love the pink room. When Taylor and I first moved back home her room was upstairs, and my mom had painted it pink a few years ago...well, when we moved back all of our rooms were downstairs....so I ended up painting her downstairs bedroom all pink too...up until about a month ago (when my mom finally was able to paint the upstairs one) we had 2 pink rooms in our house! Hers is more of a pale pink, but I really almost like your pink better! I'm sure Keziah will love it also!!! Also, I love the pic of you and the kids, you look super good for just having had a baby!

that pink looks just like Cassidy's. I remember after the first coat wondering if the brightness would make her sick! But she LOVES it. I would just cover up the bumpers. When I made Cassidy's room, I actually bought a pair of pink bumpers at walmart and added them to the green bedding. (they were like $10 too, cheaper then material) I then sewed a pink trim on the crib ruffle and it all matched.
You should check value village out, they might have some basic bumpers as well. I just thought of this cauze I was there today and amazed at the amount of cute bedding.
