So, who knew starting a blog involved so much technical skill?  (A lot of you, I'm guessing!)  I've been bogged down in trying to learn wordpress so I can switch over from weebly, learning to edit my photos better using picmonkey, and generally forgetting to take "before" photos.  So, just a quick post about a work in progress....

Middle daughter's bedroom was nothing special, which also encouraged the messes to stick around.  While we painted the room when we moved in seven years ago, they had become quite dirty and scuffed.  Over the years, the room has been shared by all three girls, individually, and by various combinations of two.  As all three girls are growing up, it is time to give each of them their own personalized space.  

We poured over pictures on the internet of girls rooms, and decided to do a Paris Theme.  The room is about 80% done, we just need to finish decorating the walls...
 
This is an old project which was inspired by some quick projects I saw on other blogs.  While the medicine cabinet started out organized, after some time I realized it could be much more effective.  I don't even remember what was in that silver container - because I rarely used it.

I also hated that big crack down the back, and the blue paper on the bottom that had been in the cabinet since we moved in.

I grabbed some spackle, sealed up the crack and searched my basement for leftover paint.  I decided bright yellow for a nice cheery pop in the morning.  The bright sun color led to the flowers and covering the shelves with paper I had purchased from Ikea some time back.   I grabbed some dollar bin containers I had already purchased from Target.  I used velco from Home Depot to secure my glasses case to the back wall, allowing me to take it off for travel.  

I still love the bright, organized, cheeriness I get each morning when I open the mirror!

I created this while my hubby was deployed, and now that he's home, I need to update it a little to give him some space too, so there will soon be an update....
