Who needs Trading Spaces?

In an effort to make our familyroomden, ‘playroom’ a little more attractive play-friendly, we have been doing some redecorating.  Anyone who has seen our ‘decorating’ ability in the past is probably cringing at this very moment.  We decided to paint the walls blue, I was thinking a light, sky-blue.  However, it is more of an ‘under the sea’ blue.

We also let Supergirl in on the decorating action as she is in charge of the artwork for the walls.  She quickly got to work:

    I like it! I especially like Supergirl’s artwork. By the way, you have a VERY cool gate around your fire place. 8^)

    What a fantastic idea with Supergirl’s artwork! I may borrow that idea for Bella’s room 🙂

    Her artwork very closely resembles FGV’s around age 10-12. Wow, she must be really advanced in her artistic development as well! You can find FGV’s work in the kids/guest room (one of them was hanging upside down until I noticed last year)…

    I love the color. I am about to paint my kitchen blue (a lighter version of that blue). I love having kids artwork to decorate. It is easy and cheap (and there only will be more and more and more the older she gets) We bought 5 or 6 poster sized Ikea frames and a few smaller ones and we have a whole hallway full of “art”. My daughter can change them out herself now..but it is nice to have a place to put it. THe fridge can only hold so much. I have also utilized the “clothes line/clothes pins” system in hallways too. That is another great way to “store” it.

    I have been putting off doing some decorating things…I am getting inspired.
