Girls Room Makeover! Pink - Red - White

My Mom's been bugging me for these pics - so here they are. It took a lot of blood sweat and tears, but it's finally done! I bought these beds off Craiglist for a steal and stripped and stained them. It about killed me and Joe was mad the whole time b/c he was worried I might be prego while I was staining and he didn't want me around the fumes. But, he just doesn't have the time to do it and when I want something...........................well, let's just say it got done didn't it? :-)
I wasn't prego at the time so that was good. But I am prego now for those of you who didn't catch it a few weeks ago. Be prepared for me to turn into an elephant. It's very scary!
Anywhoo, one night I was in bed thinking of what I could do to transform the girls room. I started getting ideas and had to get out of bed and sketch what I wanted to do until about 2am in the morning. Yep, that's how I roll!







Dollar Store Frames spray painted brown. I love a deal!

These dang flowers about killed me. And yes - they are supposed to look like a childs drawing! :-)

The middle fabric is a table runner, the red is a cheap tablecloth and the red "buttons" were 50 cent mirrors spray painted red.

Another room down, hopefully soon, it'll be my bedroom that gets the re-do. It's a little white trashy right now! First I have to come up with a plan......

About my post on Jackson Hole, we stayed at my Dad's cabin (lodge) but the activites were through other companies. The slide and trampoline were up at the Snow King ski resort and the horses belong to my dad's friends.

That room is awesome! I bet your girls love it. (Home decor is not my thing...I still have white walls in my bedroom 7 years later.) I loved the style of the entire room. You should consider consulting! :o)

An Original recording of a Lady GaGa Single was Dug Up this afternoon with no traces of where it came from.
Some say that it was discovered in GaGa's Record Label's headquarters.

It looks great Alisa! Alexia wants me to redo her room too but mine seriously needs some help first.
