The end of Project Run & Play but the beginning of oh so much

I'm beginning the sewing for my soon to be 7 year old's room makeover. I started by making a pinboard. Of course. You can't start anything without a pinboard anymore, can you?

Then I picked out some fabrics. Oh my. I think she'll be in love.Girly fabric-6545

I couldn't decide if I wanted to go with more of a neutral duvet cover or a floral quilty one. You can probably guess which way I went. 

Considering this color pallet, what color would you paint the wall? Nothing pink. She shares her room with her little brother. Though I'm sure he doesn't care!

    I loved your dresses! I’m shocked to see you go, but I’m sure it was a huge time suck, so YAY for more time to work on projects you love!

    So funny, I was thinking of yellow too! It would be so nice because you could always incorporate the white and yellow into the color scheme for your little boy’s things and tie it all together. Beautiful fabrics!!!

    I LOVE those fabrics…..and can’t wait to see your room! Can you come to my house next? I need some serious help, and I change my mind about 2 times a week so they are NEVER going to get done.
