Lindy's Room

My kids were all coming and going today. Ashley flew to St. Louis this morning for a Chi-Omega leadership meeting. Meanwhile, Laura and Lindy drove all day back from Daytona where they were at church camp. They said they only got about two hours sleep last night from staying up talking with their friends all night. They were exhausted when they got home!

We finally got everything finished in Lindy's room...well, sort of. We got the furniture put together last night. Today you should have seen Steve and me squeezing the box springs into his Expedition and tying the mattress on top! We were sweating to death! (It's about 1000% humidity here lately!)

I also went to Target today to pick up a few little things and then ran by Steve's mom's house to pick up the pillows she was sweet enough to make. Then I cleaned everything up and put on the new comforter, fluffed the pillows, put light bulbs in the lamps and waited for her to come home.

She loved it!! She was so excited. Of course, we still need to add all the fun touches like pictures on the walls and some cute candles, etc. But I will show you what we've got so far.

Here is her room before, complete with the teenagy colors she wanted back in middle school and I let her have. ;)

And here are her new, sleeker colors and design!

I will show you more once she has a chance to finish putting everything up like she wants it. :)

I think I am "projected out" for a while! For the next week or so my plan is to just relax and enjoy summer!


  1. Wow Betsy, This is gorgeous!! You did a great job. I'm sure she is thrilled. I love the colors.

    Now go, get you some rest girl, you've earned it :)

  2. That looks so good. I bet she was very excited when she saw the difference. We are in the middle of redoing my daughter's room. We have the furniture already, but I haven't gotten the bedding ordered quite yet. Can't paint until I can match the duvet cover. I will fer sure post pics!!

    PS I really enjoy your blog!
