And So It Begins

So I decided today, at exactly 11:34 a.m., that I was ready to begin making over the kids' bedroom into the magical medieval theme I had contemplated in July.

Just like that?

Yup. Just like that.

I've been thinking about it again for the past few days and I suddenly got the itch to paint and Baby was sleeping just happened.

And here is what I did.

Next I will slap some gray paint on the walls and paint a lovely stone border around this to make it into a window.

The idea is to get as much done as possible before I start school on January 9th.

Of course we all remember how great I am at finishing painting projects. It only took me eight years to completely paint my living room. At that rate, sister will be thirteen and Brother will be sixteen. Think he'll still appreciate a castle bunk bed then?

We'll see.

By the way, I'd like to thank my friend, The Pink Commander, for making her kids' rooms so incredibly beautiful that I became a covetous wretch that can't rest until my own children have dwellings equally as lovely.

You're a true friend.

Goodness- that is AMAZING!!!

Personally- If I tried that, well- I think your girls would stand a better chance of drawing something recognizable. My kids are much more happy with- "just come with the keys and the credit card, mom".

Encore!! We want to see the finished product :)

Wow. You painted that? If I attempted that, the princess would've looked like Rupaul and the unicorn probably like a st bernard.
