Bitter..sweet...chocolate

I must admit, this room makeover has been dreaded for many reasons. One. Madison is my baby. Her room was the last of the sweet nursery's to bless this house. Two. I'm just having a hard time letting it go.


So if you want to peek...


Madison decided on a very rich chocolate brown. My girl has such good taste! You should have seen her room while I was painting. It started off a mint green and as I was painting the brown I felt like I was in one big Andies mint,hehe

Awwww sweet husband. Don't let him fool ya though. I did all of the painting myself...thankyouverymuch~

Madison was so glad to see the pastel colors on her ceiling fan come down.

She is just so excited!

I love how the white just pops now with the dark brown.

This is only day one and the room is painted.The walls are still wet in this picture,I couldn't wait. Today and Tuesday the kids will be home due to living in Louisiana. Darn that Mardi Gras. Oh well..it just gives her a couple of days to clean out all of her toys that are now visiting the living room.I cant wait to show y'all the pillow she picked out. It was her inspiration for the entire room

  9. Beautiful! You tell her that we are very proud of her bold taste. I wanted to go brownish in my kitchen and didn't have the nerve. It will be very sophisticated. :)

  12. I was so worried about going so dark and so I chickened out. How will you keep her room from being too dark? Godd lighting i guess.
    I love the Chocolate. So warm and yummy!

  22. Love that color! We are in the midst of trying to figure out what to paint Kayla's room. I am at a loss and so is she. She wants one color then another...Who knows what it will end up being.

  23. Morning, Susie! OH, the walls look gorgeous! Madison has good taste and is the most beautiful little girl! She's growing up, sniff sniff! I know how it feels! But you're a tough cookie, Dear Susieness! ;)

  29. She sure is cutie! What colors will she be using with the brown? Can't wait to see her new room!

  30. Oh I just thought about something...if you want a custom rug in her room to match her new colors, let me know. We just got in a brown carpet that we could use to make her a custom rug...maybe with her initial in the center. Did you see the rug we did for Rhoda??

    ReplyDelete
  31. ah, your baby! It looks good and I'm sure there will be girly touches when all is finished!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Great color..I guess your beautiful daughter has her mothers taste!

    ReplyDelete
  33. She is so pretty, Susie. Takes after her Momma. : )

    I can't wait to see what y'all do with her room!

  34. Love the brown - but I can so understand where it's hard to let them give up their "younger" room. I am already trying to put off Graham from this and he is only 6! Why do you have to stay home? I guess I don't get the whole MG thing - isn't it only really in NewO? I thought ti was odd to see MG party things in our Wal-Mart this morning. Who celebrates this out west? (I guess I am clueless on this topic!)

  35. I'm loving her new room. My 8 yr. old will love it too - especially if it's paired with pink. They are her favorite colors.

  36. Look forward to seeing what you are going to do.

    They do grow up fast don't they.

  37. that is BEAUTIFUL! her taste has gotta be in her genes:)

  38. This room looks great...even though you didn't want to make it over (which is understandable). I love the wall color against the white doors...very nice.

    Again, great job.

  41. Susie, love the color of her room. She made a great choice. I think it will make me sad too when I have to redo my babies rooms in their choices. A sign they're growing up. Your daughter is a beautiful girl by the way.
