It's About Time

Well here we are. Maybe three years later or so :) A while back I did a post on my daughters bedroom and what I should do with it. Now in my defense, I DID try to do something more recently, however... I did not succeed. This year, Anna wanted a new room for Christmas, and we were ready for her to have one. After my last debacle, hubby had to jump in and replace what wallpaper I managed to destroy, but this time we were both determined. We tried every chemical known to mankind to remove that wallpaper....and it was no use. We rented heavy duty steamers and professional equipment, but it was all to no avail. Alas, hubby studied, worried, fretted and prayed. Finally, after much hesitation, we decided to paint over it. Yes, you heard me right. We painted over the wallpaper.

 I must add however, that we did not JUST paint over it. We spread sheet rock mud over all the seams and joins, then sanded. We repeated this oh...about 50 times. Really...more like 4 just seemed like 50.  

Here are a couple more "in progress" pics.

Now........the new teenage room.

Nuff said.

Your daughter's room is fantastic, Shine. The black and white is a striking combination. She must be so excited for her new bedroom. It looks like a lot of work was done by you and your husband, and now she can relax and enjoy. I really like the "music" picture and what it says. My son plays the guitar a bit and wished he got back to it.
