A List Maker's Life: Feathered and Striped

Feathered and Striped

Before our newest little one makes his arrival we really wanted to make over each of the "big kids'" rooms. When Gavin's project turned in to something much bigger than I originally expected I resigned myself to the idea that Anne Hope would have to wait for her own extreme bedroom makeover.

Well, lucky for her, I was wrong. Grandpa stepped in to get the project in motion and Kevin put in hours and hours of weekend overtime to make her freshly redecorated bedroom a reality.  Crazy enough I didn't take a single before picture. 
My favorite thing about Anne Hope's new room is the colorful curtains.  Her favorite - the "bed up high." 
With another project checked off the list, who knows maybe I can still convince Kevin to fit in a kitchen makeover and a new roof??? 

No, seriously, my biggest goal now is to find a way to scrub all of the slopped paint off my elbows and toes before heading off to the hospital to deliver.

  6. Did you add the wainscotting too? (I'm having a heard time remembering the old too!) The stripes really help to break up the pinkalicious room. A favorite for her no doubt. And what almost 5 year old wouldn't LOVE a high bed. :)

  9. What a cute room! I'll bet she loves it. You guys do more room makeovers than anyone I know and it always looks great and makes me want to make over my own house! :)
