Updated Bedroom - Pepto Pink Meets Tranquil Blue

F I N A L L Y 

My daughters bedroom.

It's taken me forever to get this post up, and share it with you. Partially, because there are still things that I want to do with her room.
I haven't hung any of her art yet. And I also haven't replaced the baseboard moulding. 
Then there is the thing with her closet.... I was going to remove her doors and hang curtains.  I was going to take her closet doors down and hang panels instead. I haven't done that either. I know, I know, I am a major slacker. 

But, since its a process, like everything else, I will get to the remaining things, and then I will share with you all, all over again. :-)

Prepare yourself people. The before was bad, real bad


I had a color scheme picked out for the last 1-2 years.. 

Then, I decided to change it and go with a neutral. 
Bad Idea.
The neutral I picked ended up looking more like baby poop. It was HORRID.

So I went back to the original color scheme. 


Take a look at the side by side comparison.  Its kinda pathetic actually. 

The color is called Pensive Sky by Behr. Its soooooo much better. I absolutely love the color. 
See the craigslist bookshelf? The room wouldn't be complete without something from craigslist.

Now your probably asking yourself, "what on earth was she doing picking out such a horrid pink in the first place?" 
Its a good question.
I was VERY pregnant when my husband was painting. As soon as we started painting her room I knew it was the wrong pink, but my son was due any day, and we needed the painting finished so we could move in. So there. :-) I had a good excuse.

Much better without the pink! I have found that choosing the right color pink is very hard.
