Julia's room makeover

As a gift for Julia's 7th birthday Andrea and I wanted to surprise her by giving her bedroom a makeover. So, we went out shopping and got everything from paint to curtains to bedding to room decor to transform her room into the perfect haven for a girl to retreat to when she is overwhelmed with a house full of brothers. Being the only girl in the family we wanted to give her something really special and thought this was the perfect idea!

We headed out to her place early last Wednesday and were on a mission to finish her room before she returned home from being at her cousins house (Thanks Chris for helping us with getting her out of the house for the day).

Here is what Julia's room looked like before

We started by clearing out the room then got to work painting the walls a refreshing lilac color We had lots of help from Chris, Zach and Ethan.

Here's Zach, he was a huge help with the paint roller

As we eagerly awaited the walls to dry Christine and Andrea decided to go shopping to get a few more things for the walls. We thought it would be fun for Chris to pick out a few things of her own to add to the most feminine room in the house. The neatest thing she picked out were some pretty awesome 3-D butterflies for the walls, we even hung some from the ceiling. Ethan and Zach had fun helping us decorating the room as well, it was great having them there to give us their advice with placing things in just the right spot. It was so much fun watching their excitement as they saw the room transform into something pretty cool. We finished with not a minute to spare! Actually, Chris had to block the door from Julia barging in her room so that Andrea could hang the last of the picture board before our grand presentation!

And here she is grinning with excitement!

It's kinda' hard to make them out but here around JULIA's name are the 3-D ButterfliesHappy Birthday Julia!
Aunt Annie, your mommy and I had a blast! You so deserve the perfect room. I love you Jules!
