I just got done reading the book 'Pinkalicious' to my daughter. A suitable book for a little girl who loves pink. This weekend, aside from fireworks and red, white and blue cake, Husband and I began to transform our littlest's bedroom.

The walls were painted white over a previous blue color. A no-no for our girly-girl. The carpet is actually gray, even though it looks blue-ish in this photo.

I'll name this color  'Cafe Au Lait.'

I found a color I loved from another paint store, shhh...had Lowe's match it (because they'd sent me a coupon) and saved the rest in an old PB jar. (Paint tip: keep the sticker, so they can scan the bar code to get the exact match if you need more paint!)

Then busted out some handy spray paint to paint the vent cover, switch plates and outlet covers...I'm still pouting over not being able to paint the woodwork white, but I'll get over it when I get all the accessories up and with the help of a neighbor, sew her a new comforter, which in the end will cost me $3.50!

Stay tuned for more posts on her room transformation...

Join me and others, we're hookin' up with Allison:


  1. Your daughter would soo get along with mine. she's totally girly-girl, loves pink, won't wear tennis shoes or shorts-mostly dresses and cute sandals and flats. Not sure how she got this way since I'm not a frilly kind of girl. Can't wait to see how your daughter's room turns out!

  2. you've got a big job ahead of you, AND a big reward!
