before and after pics.... finally

So, remember this? Well I finally got the "after" pictures. This is how the room looked before the previous owners moved out: My poor Mommy and I were in this stinkin' room for about eight hours painting. Towards the end we started getting a little delirious from all the paint fumes. Awesome. It was all worth it though, because it turned out so dang cute. Here we are just getting started. I had just finished sketching the flowers on the wall: (My legs, for some reason, look like tree trunks in this picture, so please just look away from the gray monsters)

And here are the "after" pictures: (I can't take credit for the stems of the flowers, that was all my Momma)
And here is the person we did this all for:
A few days after I left they painted some stripes around the whole room.
You likey?

Great job Mary and Ruthy! I will make sure to call you when Ellery has a room of her own.
It reminds me of my Mom's sewing room, she has some flowers along one wall with a quote that says "The world laughs in flowers"
