Tween Girl's Bedroom Redo - ORC: Week 2

Wow, Week one of the challenge flew by so quickly and I just can not believe we are already in Week two. Happily, I made some progress with painting the walls and getting the popcorn ceiling scraped. The ceiling was not previously mentioned in my plan 😊, however, I thought it would be fun to try something new.  I am still contemplating what tone would work well, or if I should use a certain technique to spruce it up. But knowing me, something will definitely strike my fancy at the last minute.

Here are a few accessories I picked up for the room

Well here are some photos of what I have been up to at this point.

I painted the room and I love it! While the former bright colors were lovely, I am enjoying a new look for a change. 

 Here's the yummy-looking paint that I used on the wall. It is Basin Blue by Behr and it corresponds with one of the shades my daughter initially requested. Actually, I was given two choices, light blue or purple and I went with my gut feeling. Of course, she has no idea what color I selected because she wants everything to be a surprise. Can you blame her? Who doesn't like a good surprise?

Popcorn Be-gone! POOF! Currently, this look is giving me some serious inspiration. 

My 6-year-old son asked me, "Mommy, did they really make the ceiling out of popcorn?"
 (Poor soul 😃) Ha! I don't think it would've lasted if they had. 

As a refresher, here's what the room looked like a week ago.

...and now to revisit the plan that was revealed to you in Week One
