Courtney's Room

Here's a few pictures of Courtney's new room. We think it turned out great. The colors were Courtney's choice and the lady at the paint store gave Phillip a very funny look when he asked for these colors. But this room totally fits Miss Courtney's personality. The hard part has been for me to step back and let Courtney add her decorative touches by placing her things in her room. Which she has enjoyed and is proud of.
My father built this desk in the early 80's. Courtney and I painted it white and added new stylish drawer pulls. Not everyday but some days this is where she likes to sit and do her school work, especially when Jonah is getting on her nerves. (Go Figure!!!)

I love it. I would have never thought of doing something like that, but it is SO CUTE! I miss you!

I for one LOVE the colors!!! I also am partial to the horizontal stripes. We did that in Miss Emma's room, but not quite to that grand of a scale. And the dots - too cool!

Her room is so cute! This gives me ideas for Luke's room. I may paint a beige strip around to lightened up the room, Then I could hang his band pictures in that stripe and maybe place a shelf for his trophies. You have got me thinking. It will be a while before you will see a picture.

I am so glad we have this avenue of keeping in touch.

That is TOO cute and it really does capture Courtney! I'm glad that things seem to be settling in (boo,hoo)! I hope you have a great day. I intend to call today so hopefully I'll catch you at home. JP
