We're Redoing Daughter's Room

I don't have a real before. The wood wasn't painted and is pine...and was filled with holes from years of hardware hanging. The walls were painted Pepto Bismol pink. There are hardwood floors, but the floor in this room was so stained from someone's pet that we put in carpet. This is how we decorated it for our daughter when she was about 4. I love the woodwork painted white and I think it is appropiate since the wood is just pine and it fits the simple folk type of house this is. The room was pretty, but these days it's just plain tired and chipped and in need of attention. These are old pics. It's been a nice room for all these years but now our daughter is 16 now and ready for a change anyway. She wants bright, bright colors and since I can easily repaint later we are going to indulge her.

Stay tuned...today we are scraping, filling, sanding............

Thank you for sharing the pictures of your daughter's room. It's very cute, but those kids do grow up and start wanting their own thing. I'm sure that what ever you do will be very pretty. Good luck with the project
