Tackle it Tuesday: Princess room redo part 2

Last week's tackle was to get started on the changes in my daughter's room. I got the walls prepped and was going to just start the paint job on Friday but when my husband came home from work he said, "just let me get changed and I'll help you paint the room." What a sweetie! We worked on it up till dinner and some after dinner and got the whole room done .... three coats of white paint. I hadn't primed the walls and it took three coats to cover the tan/beige color that was there and to make it so that you can't see the line from the color change where the wallpaper border used to be up by the ceiling. I think Princess is a bit sad that I chickened out and didn't put any pink on the walls. I found a fuschia color in the store the other day that matches the bedspread and I may try my hand at sponge-painting around the bottom third but I don't have time to do that this week. At least the room is clean and bright now and almost ready to become a guest room in 3 weeks when we have visitors coming.
The pink flower lamp has a light bulb and is ready to be hung (project for tonight) and I am still hoping to finish sewing the curtains and pillow cover this week. If I get that done there will be more pictures next week.
