A summer goals update


Last week I shared with you my summer goals and this week I'm tackling the toughest of all of them.

PAINTING THE GIRLS ROOM.

My girls ages 13 and 11 share the giant room above our garage. After much debate, we've decided to keep them together (for now).

When we moved to PA my girls were 6 and 3 1/2 and my son was 1 1/2. Needless to say their room colors are slightly juvenile. The room is divided by a cartoonish floral border and the bottom half is green and the top half is yellow.
They don't like it anymore and I respect that. However getting them to agree on anything that isn't outlandish has been challenging.

Suggestions included black, white, and red checkers, orange and teal (until the remembered the colors of nickelodeon), black, zebra, stripes (both dark purple and light).

I am happy to say those were eliminated. We have now decided on two shades of blue and a white. The ceiling will be white. The far wall will be dark blue and the other walls light blue.

We may or may not attempt some polka dots.

Fingers crossed they are gonna like it.

More updates to follow.

Good for you for tackling the hardest goal first. I think your plan is good. Too loud and busy like zebra stripes would give them a headache!
