I'm very impressed with the stripped wall...but man that looks like it was alot of work! I've wanted to attempt strips but haven't yet. You may just be my inspiration!

When you said you were painting...you weren't kidding! I know that took a long time and was a bit tedious. It looks like a perfectly perfect pink katkave.

That is really a nice room. I like all the color and details. One question, the door with steps in front, is that the closet or the door?

Christy said...

I love the stripes on the wall Very trendy!

Jan said...

Hey Dani, How is it going? Love the room. That must have really been time consuming. It turned out perfect though. I have to say that I am madly in love with the doors. Oh my gosh they are awesome. Great job and keep on keeping on. :) See you around the neighborhood of blog.

thank you!!!

dani

dani said...

dani said...

hey, amanda:) we got most all of the accessories for katherine's room from dry ice, a "groovy" store on the mall that's where the round-about-chair and headboard lights came from as well...
thanks:D
love,
dani

dani said...

tanya, thank you; as with decluttering under the beds and closets, it feels really good just to have it completed:D
love,
dani

dani said...

shannon, the wall was originally yellow (i don't know if you remember it or not???). i just used the (blue painter's) scotch tape, a level, and colored acrylics. it's really not that hard so long as your tape is well adhered to the wall:)
love,
dani

dani said...

jenn, actually kat's room was a 'touch-up' job, and she got a new ceiling. i am still working on her den and bathroom. (one thing has led to another).
the paint was very intricate and detailed... especially the chair-rail.
the notorious d always laughs that i use a 1/2" brush to do a whole room... HA!!!
thank you:D
love,
dani

dani said...

it is sooooooooooooooooooo clean, d:D

dani said...

hi, kellan:) thank you!!! we have always called katherine's room the "kat kave"... as it's the darkest and coolest room in our house, ha!!!
love,
dani

dani said...

hey, suz:)
thank you:D
ok,the door that you are referring to goes into our formal living room. the one right next to it (which is level with kat's room) is the closet, and the door that is between the roll-top desk and the computer table goes into katherine's bath room.
love,
dani

dani said...

Robin said...

Dani, her room is soooo cute! I luv me some stripes! Did you do those? How the heck did you keep them so straight?

My husband has the EXACT same little rolltop desk. He had it as a child. Freaky!

dani said...

thanks, shannon:D now, if she will just keep it that way!!!
love,
dani

dani said...

hi, robin:) the stripes i did with painters' tape and acrylics (as with the chair rail border). it's really not that difficult so long as you have a level!!!
that little desk we got for katherine at an estate sale a looooooooog time ago. the woman that it had belonged to (when she was a child) would be 60 years old this year had she not died. i don't know if it was new for her or an antique???
have a great day:D
love,
dani
