The Girls Room

We have been contemplating how to do the girls room for awhile.  We knew we wanted something bright and alive.  We looked all over the internet for ideas.  And we found the perfect one!  We chose to do bright colored rectangles.  We loved the idea!  So here is the journey we took to create this amazing room for our little nerdlets.  Now keep in mind we spent months doing this, so it was time consuming.  But in our defense we also had Christmas and a Wedding to work around.  Here we go!
We worked as a team at this point.  David marked the walls, and I stuck the tape on the walls.  Since our house was built in 1940s, the walls are not perfect.  So we had to do it by hand and kind of play with it a bit so it looked good.  haha!  Gotta love old homes!!!

We finished the taping, that took forever.  But it was worth it!  I went through and painted a glaze along the tape so the paint wouldn't bleed through.  That was quick!
Now it was all David.  He did the squares one color at a time.  I did however watch the kids so they didn't get the paint, well mainly Sam.  He wanted to be in there.  The girls had to watch some of the time because it was there room.
Finished with tape still on.
Paint tape off and I wanted to show the closet door as well!  I want to move into this room!  It turned out so cool!!!
