Annabelle's room isn't done but it's not bad either (and as you can see, she likes it). I made a few hasty errors that I now have to repair. I was going to put her bed in one direction and painted a letter "A" surrounded by flowers to go on top. Once I got the bed and dresser in there, I realized it wasn't going to work. So I'll need to sand that area down, paint over it with the leftover paint, and move the "A" to where her bed is now.
I would leave the "A" above the dresser but I have a large mirror that is supposed to go there--and her bed is needing some sprucing up.
The open items on her room (besides additional decorating) is finishing the ceiling paint. I had already painted the ceiling when Bob & the gang decided to do a repair near one of the light fixtures. So, that needs to be repainted.
In addition, I want to hang drapes from the archway in her room. That arch doesn't really do anything other than trick your eyes. The ceiling of the new portion of her room and the ceiling of the old portion did not line up by about 1/2 inch. (I know, I know, don't ask). So, the only solution was to either tray the ceiling (2k) or leave an arch (free). In a panic I called my girlfriend Vicky who assured me an archway would be cool (and she really does have great taste and is honest--so it's not like the time my mother said that the perm looked nice on me). So the idea is that one side of her room is sleeping, and the other side is play. Here they are making full use of the play area today.
I've had a few people ask me if the boy's have noticed that Annabelle's room is larger than theirs. I'm not sure it actually is--and I'm afraid to calculate the square footage. Right now I mostly hear how unfair it is that they share a room at all. Luc has asked several times if he can sleep in the garage. And, there are many times I'd very much like to oblige him.
