The Big Reveal - Before's

I love that The Boss has finally gotten to the point that he tries to remember the all-important "Before" pictures of rooms when he dives into a new project. Now I've just gotta get him to give me some warning that he's actually starting, so that I can snap a true "before" shot with the room in it's "natural state!" Here are the views of LadyBug's room while he was prepping it for her big re-do.

Note the bright pink and white sponging effect. A friend used to tell me that it looked like Bubbalicious blew up in there! It really was a cute room: Strawberry Shortcake striped sheets made into curtains, a floral comforter and SS throw pillows and little SS accents and posters around the room. Bright, airy, and very cheerful - just right for LadyBug when she was 5. But now, as she matures into a graceful and grown-up 9 year old (who will have to get used to sharing her room when we host overnight company), she was definitely ready for a softer, more sophisticated look. Stay tuned for the reveal of LadyBug's new room, coming very soon!

It's looking great and I love the pink! I know Ladybug will love it too. Please tell her she has great taste. :)
