The Ab-Cat’s Room Makeover-Part Two

I know I told you a week or so ago that I would show you The Ab-Cat’s redone room, and I fully intended to, I have not been stringing you along! We were waiting for the chair to come in, then waiting for Honey to put it together, and then I only thought about it in the morning when she was sleeping . And like I said, I have been told that taking pictures in ones room when one is sleeping is creepy.

Here was her old room, minus the posters and junk she had hanging since high school. I wasn’t quick thinking enough to get the before, before shot. Nasty, breaking vertical blind, old carpet, worn out comforter and entirely too much BLUE.

Capri Patt helped with the un-bluing. Bring on the Hazelnut Cream!


Her room had the honor of being the first to have the carpet ripped out! She was rolling loud in there!


And then TA-DA, new carpet! And new curtains!


Old headquarters of the room.

New central nerve center! Ignore that stuff between the dresser and desk. It is a failing cat bed experiment. It is Abby’s deepest desire to lure the cats into her room. After a decade of living with her pupper-dog Katie, the cats considered her room OFF LIMITS.


They have been wandering in, and Mama Mia even stayed for a nap on the bed one day, but they are not committing to a snooze in the cat bed. She is a patient girl and still has hopes that they will get bolder!


I made her the letters for Christmas last year. We put that sign where she can see it multiple times a day, as encouragement to be the wonderful girl that she is.


The blue is back, it scared me!

LOVE.THIS.PICTURE!!!!! She is a fan of Ansel Adams’ work.


She chose the comforter and the green as her pop of color. I am LOVING the curtains. They will be SO much easier for her to manage.


She bought a new chair! It’s from the Christopher Knight Collection on Who would have ever thought that we would have a chair designed by Peter Brady in our home?? She can read or watch tv, reclining.


MORE blue.

Thanks Capri Patt for your expertise!!!!

    […] 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! I was […]
