Paula, is full of surprises! So how she and husband Hal, managed to keep a room ‘makeover’ a secret from daughter Kelsey, is amazing in itself! But when Kelsey, who had just returned from a Senior Trip to Colorado, ran upstairs, opened her door and screamed, they knew their mission was a success.
After two days of planning and one long day of installing. Paula, friend Jordan and I completed the project. Using mostly things on hand, it was definitely a team effort. We moved furniture, rolled out a rug (thanks' Nash!), cut, framed, hung, stapled, glued and arranged until the stars came out. Whew!
And while we were creating a special space for Kelsey, she was on Pike’s Peak with her class. Funny that we happen to have this old photo which we included on the wall of vintage maps.
Vintage maps, old photos, plates, and an oil painting by Kelsey's grandmother decorate the wall above a French chaise.
Happily, Kelsey, loves her room and enjoys spending time there. Which lead her to think of a surprise of her own…She cleaned out her closets, desk and drawers!
Happy Senior Year Kelsey! You will make an excellent senior class President! May God richly bless your path on the adventure ahead and remember that ‘Life is a Blue Sky of opportunity!
