Top Secret Reveal {Slice of Life Story Challenge}

I have a voice message.  It's my oldest and she beat me home today and discovered my top secret project I mentioned earlier this week.  


Oh my goodness, this is amazing!  
You should be on HGTV!  
Literally this is the most beautiful room I've ever seen in my entire life.  
Ahhhhh!

Before - she picked these colors when she was entering sixth grade.  In these photos I had started to take things down and then realized I needed a before picture.  


                                                  


After - I have a few more tweaks or ideas to finish the room but she has a space to reflect where she is now as a junior in college.  My hope was to create a space where she would want to come to and spend time with us and have some rest and peace.   I'll think she'll be back after spring break with her friends.


                                            


Thank you Two Writing Teachers for organizing the Slice of Life Story Challenge.

  5. Aren't surprises just the most fun? You have created a beautiful place for her to call her own whenever she's back home. Well done Mandy!

  6. Our oldest son had not grown up in our current house and when he came to stay with us for a few months a couple of years ago, the room he would stay in was barely a guest room and certainly not his. While he was with us, we decorated the room in his preferred style including black walls. It sounds weird but it looks sophisticated and cozy. Now when I pass that room or talk to my husband about it, I call it Pat's room. :)
