If you drove by last Tuesday and caught a glimpse of a cartwheel through the windows.
That was me.
Just an ordinary day in an ordinary farmhouse with an ordinary girl in red lipstick and yoga pants with paint on them getting ready for another room make-over.
I’m partnering with Frog Tape to think outside the box and completely make over a room from top to bottom.
And just between us?
I think this is my favorite make-over I’ve ever done before.
So let’s go all Julie Andrews and start at the very beginning.
Because it’s a very good place to start. 🙂
This is the room at the top of the stair case in the farmhouse.
If you reach back into the way back machine you might remember that it had pennant flags and medals and race cars and things that went vrrrrroooooom. You can still see the compass holding court on the ceiling and the clock hands keeping time on the wall.
But that was when the boys lived upstairs.
Now it’s a girl’s domain.
Twin girls to be exact.
The new design for the room is bright and colorful and involves craft supplies and crafting tables and fuzzy pillows and numbers and letters.
And things that glitter.
And smell like blueberry.
It has a bay window on one end that we are creating a built-in window seat for.
It’s a giant window seat (almost 30″ deep).
There are places for blankets and books and it’s covered with pillows and there’s a curtain at the top to create a reading nook.
And the floor?
Don’t even get me started.
I don’t want to give it away, but I’ll give you a hint.
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.
I’m up to my elbows in it right now and it involves a lot of this.
And here’s the best part.
When I’m done it and finished and the last fuzzy pillow is in place, it will be so much more than a space to craft.
More than a place to hang out.
More than a place to simply sprinkle glitter.
It will be a space to make and dream and hope and draw and read and listen to music and build and laugh and spend lazy afternoons sitting and watching the clouds drift by.
The best kind of space.
And room made just for imagination to pull up a chair and create. 🙂
PS This room is part of the Frog Tape Paintover Challenge. More fun details to come about the challenge soon.
