Lilian picked out bright hot pink polka-dot curtains. Which necessitated putting away the sweet, mellow, homemade matching puff quilts and bringing out the polka-dot bedspreads that Rebekah and Julianne used after they grew a little older....and decided they wanted something more modern than sweet, mellow, homemade matching puff quilts.
Lilian is an artist. And a hoarder...of all artistic masterpieces along with every card, note, certificate and picture she's ever been given. Oh, I whittle through them all every now and again. But needless to say her magnet board was completely overcrowded. So we bought these clipboards and I let Lilian go to town painting them. Her older sisters decided they wanted in on the fun and painted a couple of them as well.
And these letter frames that had been hanging above Lilian's bed and had to come down when the bed became two...found a new home above the closet. They look better there anyhow. (See here) Oh. Did I never mention the addition of the bunk beds? Yeah...Lilian got a wild hare a few months ago and decided she really wished she had bunk beds. Unbeknownst to her, the bed she was using actually was one of a set, the other bed collecting dust in the storage room. So much to her delight, we were able to grant that wish easily.
Next up: the real reason Lilian wants to paint her room...aka Julianne's room re-do.
