    What Mommy can get talked into [DDs Room]

    Although I LOVE all things Disney, I have always wanted my kids to have their own choices and loves, and so I have only rarely dressed my kids in character clothing / accesories etc. I figured when they were old enough to ask for it we could talk about it then.

    We have been planning on turning The Girls animal based baby room, into something really cool...in fact we already had bedding and accesories picked out for a super hip Hawaii surf theme (with pink/orange/yellow girly colors). I am basically a sports fanatic tom-boy and I always assumed The Girl would be too. But no, she is in love with ballet, the color pink and purple, princesses (Ariel in particular) and although she gets dirty with the best of them, she is a princess at heart.

    Putting my love of sports aside, when it was time to change her room from a nursery to a big girl room, I ultimately gave in, and she got the under the sea Ariel room she wanted and deserved. So here are some pics, I am actually quite proud of it considering it goes so much against everything I said I would ever do in relation to characters.

    This was her room before (drawings by Father In Law, painted by me and Mother In Law)




    So I painted the walls light purple, drew and painted the kelp and seaweed, and placed the bubbles. My Mother in law painted the bubbles (arn't they awesome), and my Father In Law (retired postal mechanic) with a super hidden talent for drawing and painting characters did both Flounder and Sebastian.

    The bed and desk area


    Other side of teh bed


    The far wall


    Entry wall


    Anyway, I do think it looks awesome and she was so excited. We really tried to land in the middle of theme and princesses (I drew the line at FIL Drawing Ariel on the actual wall).








    Oh well...At least there is still hope for The Boy

    That last shot is hilarious - and the comment makes it even more so!!


    Great room and wonderful talents in your family to make it work. We are in the process of redoing DD's room here and when the project started, it was 100% decided to make it fairy themed. We have purchased all of the Disney Fairy books to help with the endeavor...oh, except for the fact that all of a sudden she is thinking that dinosaurs or Star Wars might be more fun to do.
    I love my awesome crazy wonderful friends!!

    Oh my lord....that there would throw me over a cliff.


    Well if it makes you feel any better, about 90 minutes after we were done, DDs friend (age 4 1/2) from across the street came over to play with her in her new room and she decided to "touch up" some of our work, with toothpaste. I won't get into the aftermath as it was quite ugly, luckily only one bubble was ruined, but I was mad!

    I'll ask the questions that most people may be thinking when they see this...

    What did you do to the kids?
    How's the TV?!?!

    Yes there is a hidden Mickey, I am hopeful she will appreciate it once she is old enough to understand. I thought it was a fun touch!

    At this point we just went ahead and painted everything we had white. We finished the kids up, got both cats (hard one) and the rest of the house. My truck was already white, but I painted it anyway*.

    *this is all a lie. It was a stock photo I pulled, but I am sure these children are dead.

    Great job on the room!!!!! I'm sure she loves it!!! I would have loved to have a room like that when I was growing up.
