Well, the time is almost upon us. This mother of boys is about to become a foster-mother of girls. (and maybe a boy too...who knows?)
We have, at this very moment, in our home, what has been dubbed "The Pink Room." Our son's all picked out the color together. It's pink....very, very pink.
My parents came up to visit a month or so ago. The room was painted but that was about it. I was in there, laying on the bare bed, chatting with my mother as she played on the computer when I became very queasy. The color was just too much for me to handle. It was too much pink! If I was getting queasy just laying in there a few minutes I could just imagine the affect the room would have on a little child who is going through turmoil.
So I announced to my mother that I HAVE to put something on the walls to break up all the pink going on in there. She laughed at me and we went on with our visit.
Well, lo-and-behold, my friend CALLED ME and I answered the phone. She told me that Lowes was having a wallpaper sale. They were getting rid of all those fun wall decals. Brian and I rushed over there to find that most of the decals were gone. We rummaged through what was left and found wallpaper for our kitchen and some fun circles for the Pink Room.
The result in the picture is what happens when you mix Circo bedding from Target that we found at the store on sale, a Home Depot rug, Curtains from Big Lots, Lowes Circle Decals, a hand-me-down crib and some Toy Baskets from JoAnn Fabric.
I just hope the gals who call this room theirs are a little bit princessy and a little bit funky-chic! As for our 16 year old neighbor, Joy, she's hoping we come decorate her room! LOL
