The Ab-Cat Room Makeover Part 1

Hi Guys!

The Ab-Cat’s room is no longer blue! She said she loves the Hazelnut Cream, and I have to say after agonizing over the color choice, we chose….wisely. I can’t show you after pictures yet though. The painting is finished but we will rip the carpet out this weekend, and then we can put the furniture back where it belongs. It’s all shoved in the middle or out in the hallway at the moment.


Abby has been sleeping in The Boy’s room for the time being. She is quite liking his full sized, super soft bed. We told her she could swap out her twin for the full if she wants. She originally had a full in there. She is mulling her options. The quandary is a space issue. She has been considering getting a little recliner in the very corner that Capri Patt is painting here. To do that, she would need to keep the twin. If she decides that she doesn’t care about the chair, hello full size bed!


The goals this weekend are the aforementioned carpet rippage, and hanging her new curtain rod. I was very happy when Honey took down the old, breaking vertical blinds. So happy that I immediately took them to the garbage can.We also need to pick up a new ceiling fan, hers quit her about a month ago.

Abby and I went out yesterday to purchase a new scent thingy. Her candle burning had caused a soot problem, which would be magnified with the much lighter walls. We are going to try one of these. In an effort to keep her counters clearer, she chose a plug in variety.


It looks very cute!


She put her sniffer to good work choosing the wax. There were a LOT of choices.


She is my Girl, she likes to have choices.

Capri Patt and I found these a JC Penney. I think we lucked out because I overheard Capri P speaking with the saleslady about either Penney’s dropping the Martha Stewart line or Martha dropping Penney’s. Anyway, they were 40% off because someone got dropped.


Abby’s choice was the black and white comforter with a pop of green. We think it is going to look swell!


To be continued…..

Have a swell weekend!

    […] Patt came and worked her magic on The Ab-Cat’s room last fall. I talked about the process here and here.  We painted and shopped and decorated until it was a thing a great beauty! Abby LOVED it! […]
