On First Mate's Big Girl Room - Part 1...

So, it's official.  First Mate's fabulous uncle has allowed us to move his stuff out of the only bedroom he has ever had (21 years) into the attic bedroom (much cooler for a young 20-something anyway) so that First Mate can have her very own big girl room!

 Of course, the room will lose it's current blue wall color in favor of a nice creamy pink.  And, yes, Phillies fans out there - that IS a Scott Rolen poster and it WAS still on the wall (can you tell how frequently we change decor around here?).

I have been working very hard on scraping off the fantastic 90's style wallpaper border.

Pretty awesome, right??? 

I am between these three paint colors (all from Benjamin Moore):

Pink Peony

Ribbon Pink

And, Honey Nut, which I think is my favorite
(the ceiling color - sorry, it was the only photo I could find)

I'll have to see the samples all up on the wall first!

Besides the paint color and getting the room all fixed up, I have a few more projects up my sleeve for First Mate's new room.  As I get them all completed, I will share them with you!

Have a good one!


  1. Hooray! It will be very pretty! I prefer the peony. How old is First Mate?

  2. YAY!! Oh i know her room is going to turn out so sweet - and I love the colors you have picked out already! I cannot wait to see more! Happy Monday to you both! xoxo

  3. I am with you, love the Honey Nut! Great color combination's. First Mate is one lucky young lady!!!

  4. Oh yay!!! How exciting.

    That room is gaw-gus! I just painted a room a dark chocolate.
    I love it!

    I am sure whatever you choose, you will make it beautiful:)

  5. I really like the honey nut color shown! Looking forward to seeing everything after it is complete :)
