Marg and Liz, the Fancy Farmgirls here.
January found us doing the great purge but also going about it a little different this year.
We’re decorating first and letting the purging and organizing follow.
Play first, then work!
January we started off re-doing the boys bedroom. We shared that with you HERE
and were moving on next to the girls room.
Lighter and brighter was once again the goal.
This is a basement bedroom so the walls needed to be lightened up.
Once again, bad, bad blogger with no “before” pics for you.
Picture a contractor handing a six year old a paint deck and letting her choose ANY color she wanted.
VERY bright blue it was!
We toned it down while still keeping it light using
Benjamin Moore “Gray Owl”.
This six year old girl is now an opinionated 15 year old so we went round and round on this trying to both come out happy.
And in full disclosure, as soon as we were done taking the pics. she proceeded to take down several things claiming it looked
“too Fancyfarmgirl-ish” Ha!
Her demands were: travel pics, fairy lights and not too much pink.
She’s happy and this momma’s happy and the pride in ownership is helping her keep it clean.
The bathroom is next!
January and February have been the months of taking back control of this house!
I’ve gotta run with this motivation while I have it.
The weather is starting to tease about spring and then the energy will be directed outdoors.
Come see our spring farmhouse tour

It’s come a long way from its Before!
