Pretty in Pink
Well... I have FINALLY got one room in my home the exact way I want it. It took 7 months, but I am VERY HAPPY with it! In fact, "Prissy" has been at my parents spending the weekend, and I keep just walking in her room to just take it all in!!
When we moved it, it was a VERY blank slate. We believe from some of the nail holes and closet fixtures, that the previous people who lived here used this room as an office. The walls were a cream color, and there were vertical blinds on the windows (YUCK!)
I new I wanted a very girlie look, and her only request is that it be pink. That for me was a very tough decision!! I had NO CLUE there were so many shades of pink?!?! We settled on one, and the man that was mixing the paint at a local store made me question my decision... as he questioned it! He wondered if my husband knew what I was doing? I kindly told him, "YES! Please, just mix the paint!"
Once I had the color on the wall, things just kind of came together. The curtains were on clearance at Lowe's, I had one of the prints for a while, I used old plates with pinks and greens on them, and finally got a plain wooden shelf at Hobby Lobby and white washed it. I am VERY pleased with it! I hope that you will enjoy it as well!
I am joining in on the Met. Monday party at Between Naps on the Porch.
Thanks For Viewing!!!
