Charlotte's Room - Before

I wanted to do a post about Charlotte's room... especially since she wants me to turn it into a rainbow theme.  Yes, rainbows.  But hey, it's her room - she might as well like it!  But when I had a say in her room for the first 4.5 years, here is what I did with it:

It took hours and hours to paint this damn room - but it turned out fantastic!  And also, I think this is the cleanest it ever was... only because she was at her grandma and grandpa's house when I converted it from her "baby" room into her "big girl" room.  Now her toddler bed is gone and has been replaced with a double bed, there are toys EVERYWHERE, bookshelves, toy shelves, a clothing bar with princess dresses, stuffed animals, toy guns, basically a kid's room 'o crap. That is why you are not getting pictures of it in its current state.

But now she's ready for an even "bigger" girl room since she is so grown up and starting pre-k in the fall.  We'll be getting her a bunk bed and dwindling her "stuff" down to about half. 

I'm still trying to figure out the whole "rainbow" thing and how I am going to make it happen.  She literally wants all the walls painted in bright rainbows.  We'll see what I come up with.  Until then I have to arrange another "extended" visit with the grandparents so I can reduce, clean, and paint! 

I'll get to it.  Sometime this summer.  But for now I am going to enjoy the last remaining remnants of my toddler's room before the pre-tween shows up.

* By the way... like the owls in the bottom picture?  You can buy your own owl HERE in our shop!
