The bedroom makeover is finally complete. We have had a blast working together, singing songs and showing the kids what team work really means. Well, that was the plan. Reality knocked and instead we showed the kids how to resolve arguments, what an exhausted and frustrated dad looks like after spending 12 hours a day painting and sanding and doing whatever the determined mom wants. The product is finished and I couldn't be happier. I am also very content and not feeling the need to change anything else in the house, so don't worry honey, you can have a few days off.

The inspiration for the colors came from these printables made by Ashley at Lil Blue Boo. I bought picture frames from the thrift store for $2 and spray painted them white.
We switched the fan blades over from the brown wood to the white wood, and everything else that went back in the room was painted white.
We searched for months for a dresser on Craigslist and one night I finally found the perfect one for $25!! I couldn't pass it up so the next morning I called my dad and we set out on the amazing race. We had to be at the location before 9 because another person was coming. It was about 45 minutes away plus it was raining and we had no idea where we were going. We made it with 1 minute to spare, paid the girl and drove off. Everything worked out so perfectly!
Anthony told me to leave it alone and he would work on it when he got home but I have a small problem with listening and a bigger problem with patience when it comes to getting projects done. No rules were broken here by having Alexis do the sanding.
She came out beautifully! The knobs were passed down from my niece a few years ago and we finally got to use them.
We painted those shelves white for her knick knacks and the mirror was also from my niece.
The headboard never made it back in.... I'm not sure if we can salvage it but don't worry, I will try!
Alexis LOVES her new room. Last night she wrote a letter to the tooth fairy and asked if she liked her new room... she said yes.
