Sareny's New Room

With Sareny starting school, we decided she needed some space of her own. We have a four bedroom house, but to this point have had all three children sharing a room. It was getting a little crowded in there, and I was worried about how Sareny could keep her school stuff from getting destoyed by the little kids.
Here is what our guest room, or "Grammy Jo's room", looked like before our remodel.

Sareny picked out purple and pink for her new room. Keith suggested a simple paint scheme; unfortunately I had something a little more complicated pictured.
We did purple, pink, and white stripes on the bottom and a lighter pink on the top with a white chair rail inbetween. After spending many hours touching up the stripes, I had to give Keith's idea of a "simple paint" scheme some credit. We'll be doing Isaac's room next, and unfortunately for him, I daresay we'll be going with Keith's plan.
We got her a new desk to keep her school supplies in and to do her homework at.

My friend Debra G made these pegs for Sareny when she was one, and they fit in perfectly with her new decor.
We also got a new dresser and new bedding and painted the old headboard white to complete the look.
I am really happy with how it turned out, and more importantly, Sareny loves it and "it makes her heart happy."

Sareny's room is so cute! I am with you on the stripes, they are a pain in the $@%@. Her bedding is adorable. It looks almost like the bedding I have in the twins room. You guys did a great job :)

Love the look! Especially the flower pegs :)

Why don't you come over and do Grace/Zane's room while you're in the mood?

Whose heart wouldn't be happy in that room? So cute! Yeah, stripes get old quick when you're doing them, but they're cute. The little hooks are awesome - perfect for a little girl who uses a backpack every day now!

Totally impressed!! It turned out so cute, and I love that Sareny loves it too--that's what it's all about, right?

ok, so honestly, i saw the first pictures and thought, "my, that isn't very girly... they could do better than that", not realizing they are before pics... and then, BAM! nice work. I love the bottom half, mostly because i didn't have to do it ;). nice work, you are a good mama.

We especially like the decorative baby in the "before" picture. :) So cute.

And the room is awesome! Total renovation. I'm so glad Sareny likes it. I would too.
