~day one~

Well well.
My baby went away to overnight camp yesterday
and won't return until Friday.
What to do, what to do?
How about give her room a makeover?
You up for coming along with me in this process?
This before photo is pretty,
but she is outgrowing the light pink. The goal.
Here it is.
The picture she picked out as to what she wants her room to look like.
Pretty huh?
So, the paint is bought, the pillows sewn, now for the fun part......


It's a total surprise.
She thinks that it will be a couple years before
I get around to doing this.
Here's the catch.
She is obsessed with candy, sugar, baking, etc.
I think she will be a chef one day.
So, I have to incorporate her pez collection......
Hum, this could be interesting!
I thought I would update you each night on what
I did that day and show you photos along the way.
Sound good?
OK, off to go make a giant latte before I start.
Talk to you tonight!
xoxo

Can't wait to see the results. My guest room is that same color. I have a creamy white slipcovered headboard - I really like it and I can't wait to see all the little touches you put into your daughters space!

What a fun surprise to give her when she returns! I so miss having a daughter at home.... Mine went off to college last year and is only home sporadically. But she's just met her new year's roommates and has volunteered me to help them decorate their campus apartment! Can't wait!

Everyone is saying they can't wait. Exactly!

I'm gonna have to save a pic of Savannah's old room to my computer if that's ok---it was her bedroom that made me fall in love with My Sweet Savannah's style on Rate My Space so long ago! lol Can't wait to see what you get done today & you just inspired me to go ahead and paint my upstairs, why not..right?!

How fun!! can't wait to see how it turns out!

{Carrie} said...

Can't wait to see it. I love to suprise my kids with things like this. I ran out of time when my son was at scout camp, too much procrastination. I did get it done while he was at church camp. I have to find time when my youngest is away to do hers. I was too mopey when she was gone to camp this last time.

Cherry Blossoms said...

Umm can you fly to Phx and come decorate my nursery and my master bedroom! Your home looks stunning her bedroom belongs in a magazine!! Can't wait to see the final outcome.

Beth West www.northernskyart.wordpress.com said...

She has such good taste. Must get it from her mom :) I look forward to seeing how it all turns out. Have a great time.

Ali@Honey and Maple Syrup said...

The current room is adorable, but her inspiration pic is beautiful too. Can't wait to see it!

Destiny said...

Sounds like fun! I can't wait to see all that you do with the room! Although....I must say, I love the room as it is...my 3 year old would love it too! Maybe I'll use THAT as MY inspiration LOL! Have a great week - love reading your blog :)

Stella said...

Beautiful rooms. Can't wait to see what you do and how you will incorporate those Pez's. Have fun!

dewgiesgirl said...

Melaine, This has nothing to do with your daughter's room, but I just had to say, "Thank you!" I am repainting my living room the Ralph Lauren oatmeal color you have in your home. Only one wall is half-way painted and I am LOVING it!!

Simply LKJ said...

Can't wait to see it all come together. We just moved our youngest into big sister's old room. Still adding the finishing touches. Now big sis needs a new room, for the occassional visits. I am loving those colors!

MamaBear said...

What a heavenly bedroom...both of them!! What a wonderful mama you are :) Can't wait to follow this journey yay!
