Painting it Red.....

Today Reagan and I decided to FINALLY paint her room. We've been discussing it and planning it for months. I never really got motivated to paint it because frankly her room is a pig pen and you take your health into your own hands when you step foot in there.

Yesterday we went about the daunting task of cleaning it up to even begin to move the furniture.

She broke her bed about a month ago. Yes a MONTH. So the mattress has been laying at an angle. She has been sleeping like that for a solid MONTH!!
I said "That's got to be really comfortable Reagan!!"
She couldn't care less.

So anyway, we moved the bed yesterday. Her response was "Oh...I can't wait! No telling what we'll find under there!! Hope it's not a mouse!"
I said "If we find a mouse, you're painting your own room!"

We managed to get the walls stripped and the bed taken apart. Thankfully, no mice.

Today we went to Lowe's to pick out a paint color. Reagan wanted red. But it had to be a certain shade of red.

Oh.....RED it is.

It looked like we had committed homicide after we got the first coat on the walls. It was the same shade as blood!

I have another coat to put on tomorrow.
My hope is that this will motivate her to keep it a little cleaner. She keeps going in there and looking, then coming back out saying "Oh...I LOVE IT....I LOVE IT!"
The color matches her personality!
