After going a week over schedule (these things happen, especially since we are all volunteers with jobs and/or kids), the playroom at the safe house is done. Okay, honestly, will still need to hide some cords, put up another picture behind the sofa and install a couple window coverings but almost! It is close enough that I want to share pictures.
When I call it bright and beautiful, I mean BRIGHT. I prefer to work with more toned down colours in my own home but it was a blast to go wild for this project and do something that I would not normally do. It stretched me out of my decorating comfort zone in the best of ways and taught me that I (with a fantastic team) can do something different and still have it turn out well, a valuable lesson if I want to decorate for other people. Another valuable lesson learned from this project was how to work with a team of decorators. As the team leader I acted as coordinator and often mediator between the strong personalities on our team, and though it was stressful at times it was great to see how everyone came together in the end to make it happen. Here it is!
Oh…but I must include some before pictures again to first emphasize how terrible it was:
And now…like a proud mama I’ll show you far too many pictures:
I love the result and can’t wait to get my hands on another room in the house. Thank you to all the lovely ladies and the sweet kiddies who patiently waited while we took over your playroom!
