138. Today I wish we would have heard, "GOOD MORNING MAGGIE'S FAMILY! WE ARE HERE TO MAKE OVER MAGGIE'S ROOM!"
My dear, sweet 11 year old has loved Hello Kitty and the color pink for many years. But lately she has wanted a change. The thought of painting over the sweet pink walls and her Hello Kitty Mural I painted for her when she was 6 years old, caused me to feel a bit sentimental.
And of course, we have to do away with all the Disney Princess accessories.
Disney Fairies would be the new theme...with the color purple, aqua, and light green. I love the colors and the thought of it...but I sure would have loved to have a crew helping me with painting and moving everything. So, off to Home Depot we went for paint and the job began.
I didn't want to spring for a new clock so we took the princess clock and pulled it apart, used the front cover of a coloring book, painted the frame purple and purchased number stickers for only $1.50.
Maggie wanted two walls light purple and two walls aqua. Then we cut stencils of the leaves, stars and ferns we saw in the pictures and came up with a random pattern. Emily helped me with the leaves.
It took us two days to paint and decorate. The clock turned out so cute.
Then I picked up a cute, small lamp shade at Target and added stick on sparkles to the bottom edge. If you notice, I painted the base of the lamp purple, which was a strawberry pink in the first picture with a Hello Kitty shade. Maggie loved the change.
The room is small, so it is hard to take a full picture but you can see our makeover from these few pics, and Maggie is loving it! And I need a vacation to rest!
