A long overdue redo...

It was decided that it was time to repaint Meg's room.....we first painted it when she was three......
 
The pink has suited her all these years.....but once we came through the  " masses of posters covering the wall" phase...we knew the walls needed redoing.....
 
Surely a couple of coats of paint and a couple of nights on the couch will be all it will take.......

Everyone pitched in.....but lots of undercoat and sealer were needed to make our dodgy walls workable for a finish that was going to be pleasing....

The picture rail went... leaving lots of filling to be done.....
It was decided.....well heavily suggested.....and very well received ...that a neutral colour would serve her well for the next stage of life......

So Antique White it was........

A whole week later she was very pleased to be back in her tiny room that now feels a little bigger and certainly more grown up....
 
Now just to add a little colour back with some accessories...although she is adamant that she likes it a little on the bare side.......but what am I going to do with the boxes of barbies and other relics that she had stashed and wants me to save for the next generation??

  2. I need to show my daughters this spic and span bedroom pronto!
    (I'm glad she kept her name on the door. My eldest had those little wooden letters too, but they were abandoned a long time ago. Still got 'em though...in a box in the shed...somewhere?!)

  6. It's a very pretty color, now she can decorate her room with any color accent and even change it up as she changes her mind! A very smart choice

  7. I love it. But am very partial to slapping a bit of paint around the walls anyway. You all did a great job, Meg must love her new space! Hope all well Bron xx
