A promise is a promise

Months ago, while at Lowe's looking at paint swatches for our bathroom, Brooke decided she wanted to paint her room pink. I put it off for awhile, saying we would do it, but not untill the summer. That bought me a couple of months. But the other day I was hit with the fact, that it is now summer, sooooo. I am not quite ready to unveil the finished product, as "we" (Mike) are putting in new baseboards too so I will post the whole room when it is done. But I HAD to show you this find from Lowes. I came across it while picking up the baseboards....



Look at this lamp!!!! It has a crystal, heavy base. Did you see that original price and the price I actually paid for it. LOVE at first sight. I am trying to offset the headache inducing pink aka Berry Much pink, by making everything else in the room white, so it looks crisp. I have painted her little vanity that was purple and pink and also found a white mirror at goodwill for 8bucks that I put little poms into the holes. We had some white sparkle curtains down in the basement already in her play area, so I moved them to her room. She had some Pottery barn striped curtains, that actually match the pink, but it was just tooooo much!!



It is turning out fun!! Hopefully the baseboards will be done after tonight and i will show the room all put together!
Oh yeah, I was able to buy the new lamp and mirror because I am back on my coupon kick and saved $32.00 in coupons at the grocery store this week :) What projects are you doing this summer??
