The girls' rooms: Before & Almost After

Yesterday morning, my parents picked up the kids for an overnight stay on the farm! Fun, right? Well, kind of. Chris and I set to work painting Alivia and Addison's rooms! We painted 2 coats on each room for a total of 8 painting hours. We planned on going out to eat, but covered in paint we decided against it. Instead we took a peaceful bike ride around the lake and picked up a pizza at Old Chicago in Shadow Lake. We finished the night getting the girls' rooms all done for the reveal today. We are almost done. Alivia's room is awaiting some artwork for her walls and a new lamp that we hope to get maybe today. Addison's room just needs a new lamp. Also, Chris hopes to do some stencil work on their walls. The girls want butterflies!

Here are their rooms before (in January)...

Chris says their is so much girl on their side of our home that our home may tip. :) It is a lot of girl! Alivia did not get anything new other than the artwork and lamp to come. Addison will get a new lamp as well. Her bedding is new from JC Penney. All of her bedding: quilt, sham, flower pillow, sheets and bedskirt, cost the same it it would have to just purchase a quilt alone from Pottery Barn Kids! Now that is crazy! It is of really nice quality too. Most importantly, Addison loves it!

Here are pictures from our bike ride last night (and run this morning!).
