College Girl BedRoom Redo Sneak Peek

Okay sweet friends have ya been missing me at all?

Before I get going I want to make sure to remind everyone that
you can still sign up for my Sweet Giveaway!
If you click my Banner on side bar it will
take you to where you need to go and read more
about all the ways you can have a chance to win.
OR
click HERE.

Now I am reeeeeeeeally tired!
My daughter starts college next week.  And since she has opted
to stay home, instead of  staying in a dorm room,
 we decided a change in decor was in order.

Of course my girl is NOT a girly girl like her momma who
loves flowers and fluffy stuff.
She is all about sports, friends and fun.
So her bright turquoise and oranges walls
speak volumes as to her bright and wonderful
personality.

But, these colors reflect a younger girl and of course
we are now a College girl with a bit more of sophistication

BEFORE



AFTER...
The walls are being painted a creamy white and the furniture
is all going to be painted in black...then a touch of
royal blues.






So there's your sneak peek.  And of course, this
is why I probably won't be back on to post until I
hopefully can get on Sunday and announce
my Giveaway Winner!
We have much to do and painting still
to finish!

Thanks for stopping by.
If you leave a comments it all goes
towards your ability to have more time
 to win!

Blessings

Hello Sweets! I think your blog header is very pretty. I use the editing program Picnik, go to collage and use the one that shows four frames! Please let me know how it goes... I love this program, plus it is free, gotta love that! Your bedroom is so much better with the creams...your daughter will love the crispness of black and white!
Hugs,
Olivia

I think creamy white, black and royal blue are gonna be funky together. Looking forward to seeing the finished room. :-)

Lorena,
My both son's rooms were beige and black. Their furniture was a natural color wood with beige drawers and with all of the electronic equipment that they had in their rooms that was black, I went with black bedspreads and black curtains. It was great for them thru high school until they moved out last year. I redid their rooms and made one my Craft room and the other my Guest Room. Their hair stood up when they saw how girlied up their rooms were.
My Jim whose room is now the guest room ,. asked me if that room was now for the daughter that i never had!! LOL!!
Love the new look!!

Hugs,
Debbie
