Meet Mace

I have a really exciting room reveal on the blog next Tuesday (mark your calendars!) But before I can share it, I need to tell you guys about my amazing niece and the inspiration behind her bedroom makeover.

This is Macie:

She is the cutest thing to happen to our family in like…ever.

Mace excels at everything she does, she is the best big sister to 4 younger siblings and my girls look up to her so much.  She is also the best last minute babysitter a girl could ask for.

Here is what Macie’s room looked like before:

Macie Before

There were a few things that we needed to address.

1.  It was really dark. 

2.  It needed to be a place that her friends would want to hang out.  (Pretty sure that is on the list of every parent that has a teenager…)

3.  The carpet.  Now go with me on this,  the carpet is not horrible.  It just isn’t my favorite thing, and it had to stay.

We have been planning on giving her room an overhaul for the last 8 months, but the timing just wasn’t happening.  Insert Sherwin-Williams National Painting Week.  Best motivation ever!

Last year I was assigned the color Pink and was inspired to create Dylan’s Dream Room.

This year my color is Green and I am mighty obsessed with the changes we made.
