I promised the kids back over the summer that come this fall, I'd paint their rooms. I painted them shortly after we moved into this house about 10 years ago and they were due for a redo.
The boys decided they were done with their racing stripes. This was taken a few years back when we were moving furniture around.
They picked a color called Forest Pine and I think it turned out to suit them very well.
Since we removed their closet doors and hung curtains, I painted the closet the same color as the room. I still need to fix the curtains a little bit. I want to get rid of the tabs and lengthen the hem.
The girls' room had a decorative feature on one wall. Since their walls were pink and purple alternating around the room, I painted a diamond pattern on the small wall between their door and their closet.
They decided they wanted to keep the pattern but freshen it up a little with brighter colors. They have chosen a soft mint green for their main walls and we managed to work it into the pattern too. Here, it just looks white.
I still have to finish their room, but I expect the three remaining walls won't even take as long as this one did! It was more of an art project and less of a home improvement project. But they love it. And I love that.
