Tween Bedroom Redo

One of the biggest projects we've tackled this summer on Picnic Hill is the re-do of Brooke's room. As usual, in my rush to start, no before pictures were taken. She was ready to let go of what she called "little girl, fancys" - I on the other hand wish she would actually stay little a bit longer. So it goes, we now have a "tween" in the house.

Although no before pictures were taken I do have an old layout I made of it.

She wanted to do something with less pink. I wanted to keep pink, in the end she agreed to include some pink for me if I let her pick the other colors. Done!

We decided to go neutral beige for most the walls with one very colorful accent wall.  We're still looking for new pillows and a channel quilted tan quilt (I am currently thinking about asking a local quilter about it) She moved up to a queen size bed and added a comfy chair for reading - I really love that she is a reader!

This one is DURING 

And these are both AFTER:

Still lots of little stuff to add for her, but now that it's done ... we both love it. That probably means a new scrapbook page.
