Rylee's Room

 My niece Rylee is finally getting her own room! It's not a very big room so Brad and I tackled the painting, well the first coat anyway and ceiling. I didn't get a "before" picture but it's not great with just one coat so Kristin and Sara helped the next day. We added a purple stripe at the top of the wall because there were so many colors up there that the paint would not cover. I guess the last 3 to paint didn't know how to edge the ceiling to the wall. I found pink, lavender and brown. The brown would not cover and Kristin has banned wallpaper so up went purple paint.We also did the baseboard in purple and painted the floor. We trimmed the window and door frame the same as the walls because I was cheap and only bought a pint of purple.
 The dresser and bed were found in the house so we used them and Kristin gave her the sheets and pillows. Sara gave her the pink trash can, lots of pink hangers and a lavender basket. Oh and I added two fluffy white rugs also. Now all Rylee has to do is move her stuff in. I'm sure she'll have a ball decorating her very own room.

That's such a tiny room...not much more than the size of a large walk-in closet. But it will be perfect & cozy for a little girl. That house has always been Aunt Alice's house to me.....Warren's aunt, and her sister too after she was widowed, lived there.
