You ever have one those rooms in your house that you just couldn’t get quite right? So, you keep tweaking and adding and subtracting and adding again, but it still just doesn’t all come together like you thought. That’s exactly what happened in our oldest girls’ shared bedroom.
I started with a fabric that I loved (at the time) and painted a ceiling to match. And, once you ask your dad and husband to spend a weekend painting a ceiling red, you’re kind of committed to that color—for life (or at least for a very long time). The problem is that once the headboards, paint and bedding were all in place, it still didn’t feel finished. So, I bought a rug. Then, I bought some pillows. And, I painted a desk blue. I just kept expanding on a room I didn’t love—and spending more money to try and make myself love it a little more.
So, I’m admitting that it just wasn’t going where I wanted it to, and working on a mini re-do. It started with taking away the headboard fabric that seemed to be backing me into a corner and pairing the red ceiling with something I loved way better. I’ll share all of the details (and do’s and don’ts) with you about their new fabric wall in my next post:
