Our house is very small. The bedrooms are tiny. We chose the smallest one to use as a nursery and then it just morphed into a bedroom. The other one, the "bigger" one - if you count slightly larger than a really tiny one "bigger", we used as a toy room.
So now that superfrykid (I gotta get some better pseudo-nicknames around here, but that's all I've got for now).....anyway, now that superfrykid is almost in 1st grade, we decided she needed to switch rooms.
The toy room had a super wide wallpaper border around the entire room, which I removed in about 6 hours with a sponge and a Pampered Chef stone scraper thing. And the toy room was painted a yellow-orange kind of color.
Did I mention I used a Pampered Chef stone scraper to remove a ton of wallpaper?
We painted over the orange-yellow with "Lime Rickey" from Sherwin Williams. It's kind of a cross between lime green and Kermit green.
Because we're subtle like that.
Anyway, surprising us all, the room is turning out pretty cute.
