Abby's Bedroom Redo

This week is a crazy week at our house... I have a lot to blog about!

I decided to make it even crazier for myself, by painting Abby's bedroom. It was time for a redo, as she is now soon-to-be sixteen.

The before pictures are how her bedroom looked when we moved into our house. Abby was nine. We did change her bedding over the years and did some accessory updates, but it was time for the lime green paint to go.

Before:

I figure this look should do okay, until she is ready to leave our nest. Or I push her out.

*on a side note, Lilah is having her tissue expander put in tomorrow at 7:30am.

GORGEOUS!!
I absolutely love the colours in this room. They are SO me, I am a very neutral person! And I love the birdy cushion. I love birds too. That was my dream for Lilah's bedroom, to do it with birds, but that dream got crushed by my three year old!! Haha!

I'll be praying for Lilah...it will be tough on her little soul.

Jill, you can't really see it in these photos, but only one wall is purple, the other three are Ashley Grey, and I love this color.... I will be doing my whole house in it this summer... well, not me, but my painter!

I adore the redo! Nice work.

I started praying for Lilah on Monday...she's on my heart and in prayers.

The room is beautiful! It is perfect for a almost 16 year old! Praying that everything goes well for Lilah tomorrow.

Beautiful! I love what you have done here, can you come do my room! Does Abby like it?

I have been thinking of you and Lilah these past few days. I will be praying for you tomorrow morning. Please let us know how she does...

That is one gorgeous room! I love the bird motif pillow...the bedding collectively looks very beautiful!
What a special gift for your daughter.

I have started praying for Lilah tonight and will continue tomorrow too. Hope all goes well.

It's beautiful and very sophisticated. From the pics the purple wall looks like our livingroom walls!
Prayers for little Lilah. She's little but she's mighty and in good hands!:)

Gorgeous room redo. Fitting gift for Abby. We redid Mikaela's room this summer and moved bedrooms around. Still adding fun accessories little by little. I love to decorate...gives me a fresh perspective.

She was NINE when you moved in? Why did she seem so old... and now my oldest is nine and it still seems so young... I love the updates you did! I'm going to hire you for some ideas when I redo my entire house ;)

We have our offices done in that colour! Love it. It is warm and inviting and pairs up so well with the green. Hope Abby adores it.
