Girl’s Room Makeover

Last weekend I suddenly was inspired to begin transforming my daughter's room. I started by thinking I would just quickly paint over the part above the chair rail, but once I started things just kept moving along. How does that happen? :) Here {below} is how the room looked when we moved into the … [Read more...]

Laundry room--c. September 2011
