For those who know me from my other blog Sew Chic and Unique will recognise this room as i blogged about it there before deciding to start this blog.
One of the first room we decorated was the girls room. I have 2 daughters aged 4 and 2 :) I knew i wanted to create something special, girly and they wouldnt outgrow anytime soon LOL
Now the furniture is light purple and there are 2 beds, a desk and a cupboard from the same collection.
My biggest challange was finding a colour scheme to go with it when i asked my 4 year old what colours whe wanted this is what she said "Mama i want red, pink and blue" and i said YES!
Now please remember i have not studied interior decorating i just learn on the job LOL so I studied the colour wheel and the relations to colour and decided on painting the walls pink and green.
So this is the before
How did i achieve that?
I measured 1 meter from the bottom which was where the green would go and wanted a white border of about 15 cm and above the border would be the pink and i drew the lines with a pencil
After that i put masking tape over the border as i didnt want any paint there. Next step was to paint the edges of the walls which included the border
and then came the fun part painting the walls with a roller brush so the first coat of both colours have been applied
after it dried we applied the paint to the edges again with a paint brush before applying the 2nd and last coat of paint
Now you might think its finshed but i still needed to add some red and blue and decided to stencil some flowers as part of the border and this is the outcome
I did alternate colours to bring in the red and blue :)
I really enjoyed painting this room for my girls because i did it with my husband (thank you honey for your help)
