|Almost a Before shot, I had already pulled the trigger.|
Originally her room as a nursery was a pale apple green with the palest baby pink. She didn't have any choice with that first go around. I wish I could find pictures because after I forced my husband to help me put up crown moulding, baseboards and a chair rail, I painstakingly hand painted 4 inch wide stripes in the area under the chair rail. At the same time I painted a large circle on the ceiling with an attempt at trompe l'oeil to create an image of the sky. It did look rather sky-like, but lacked the authenticity to really pull it off. Three years ago we remodeled most of our house, and while the painters were going through anyway, I let the kids pick their paint colors this time. My then seven year old daughter, picked a purple and a very committed pink called something like Dog Ear Pink. We left the trompe l'oeil wannabe ceiling and called it a day. It was very cotton candy looking, but she loved it at the time.

|I liked the simple white ceiling again. It really opened up the room.|
|The shoe pockets on the door fit perfectly!!|
|She sewed that monogram pillow herself!|
|Lime green was limited to a few pieces in the room. More on that later.|
