I started by taking down all the window treatments and wall decorations and filling the multitude of holes on their walls. I am a terrible precision painter so I taped everything up after thoroughly wiping down the walls. Then it was time to paint. We tried several colors on Jonathan's walls before we decided on a darker blue gray. I knew I wanted green for Charlotte and Spencer and after trying several shades, I found a bright green I love. At first I was a little worried but it is so bright and cheery, it just makes me happy. The kids really like their colors too.

For Charlotte and Spencer I wanted to make some wooden decorations with some color and I fell in love with animal silhouettes so we decided to go with African big game. They turned out well, just a little snaller than I wanted so I'm going to move them and figure something else out for the big wall in their room, maybe vines and a monkey, Charlotte really wants a monkey.
Jonathan chose the Laie Temple for the boys' room and Charlotte and Spencer have a twilight picture of the Salt Lake Temple. They both also have a picture of the Savior in their rooms.
It feels so good to have them finished and looking so much better than before. It's amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do.
