Is Sissys' room sick, Mama?

Yes, this is the question that Puckey asked the other day when I took the following picture.
I told her, "Yes, Sissys' room IS sick, I think maybe it threw up!"

You might wonder why on earth I would be taking pictures of Bug & Nans' room. Well, the EXTREME ROOM MAKEOVER has finally begun! After weeks of waiting for the girls to get in gear and clean their room so I could paint it, I gave up and cleaned it myself. It's amazing how big the room is without all of their CRAP stuff in it.
So the first thing I needed to do was a little spackling...okay, a LOT of spackling. I think the boys who once inhabited this room must have had SOMETHING hanging on just about every available inch of wall space.
Next comes the primer.

Okay, now here's the main color, "Honey Flower".
And finally, the accent color, "Antigua Sunset".
Looks pretty good, if I do say so myself! My next step is cleaning the carpet. I'd just hire someone to do it, but A) It costs WAY too much, and B) I'd rather do it a room at a time when I can get all of the furniture out before cleaning the carpet, so the WHOLE ROOM gets cleaned.

I can't wait to get all the the girls' furniture back in place, and don't worry, I'll post pictures of the "finished product" when I get that far!
