Extreme Makeover: Bedroom Edition

K Belle's away at camp.

She officially becomes 12 next week and as a surprise birthday present, we decided to redecorate her bedroom while she's gone.

Here's a tiny taste of what you get when you pull your child's bed away from the wall.
She gets this from her father.

Like him, she tends to stuff, pile, and stack things. And keep EVERYTHING.

On the other hand, La Petite Belle and I are chunkers (not in reference to our body-type). I trash everything. In fact, remember my bathing suit incident. Well, needless to say, I think I trashed my bikini bottoms. So, once again, my suit is incomplete.

I will be quite busy getting her room ready by Thursday night. Pictures will follow.

Happy Tuesday!

** Thanks, Jodie for noticing my faux pas. Once I think I've finally got this perfection thing down, I lose again. **

I hope I don't offend when I say this, but I think you mean Bedroom "Edition"... after seeing what's under that bed, I don't think you want to "add" anything to that room! :)

I can't wait to see the Afters!! I know y'all are gonna do something really cool in there!

I looove it! Praise the Lord I'm not the only one whose children's beds hide everything they were supposed to pick up! Can't wait to see the afters and hear about how surprised she was!

I keep losing at the perfection thing too. It's so annoying.

So, no worries. You'll probably have a chance to correct mine one day too. :)
