    How exciting! Can’t wait to follow your renovation journey. Why won’t you let her keep that mural? (LOL)

    My great-grandfather was a painter, he designed bags and paintings which were made later with petit point. They are wonderful. He had an apartment and he painted the whole living room with scenes from his favourite opera, stroke by stroke. When he died, the next tenant painted the whole walls white and destroyed everything.
    So, let your daughter keep the mural. If she likes it, it’s good, it’s her room.

    Greetings, Sophia

    So excited for you, and can’t wait to follow along on your journey! I agree with you about the beach scene, though, but here’s a thought. What if you take a good picture of one wall then mat & frame that bad boy and let her keep THAT in her room? I saw someone do that when they had cars and trucks painted on their son’s wall, then decided to repaint. πŸ™‚ Good luck! (Drink lots of wine. Totally helps.)

      I love that idea, Kirsten. I’ll have to take a picture and save it for Lila. She seems pretty excited about my idea for her room, too, but every once in a while she’ll say, “Let’s just leave it.”

      I feel like if I’m going to sand the whole room down, I should do it when the house is already a disaster. I couldn’t ever imagine doing it with furniture in the room. πŸ™‚

      Thank you, Danni. It’s definitely a bittersweet process: ripping out drywall and tile only to realize that it’s got to be put back together. I’m heading over to your blog right this second to see your “after” – I”m so glad that you love it!

    I feel like we are in the same point in our renovation! The great-I-just-ripped-all-the-carpet-out-can-I-really-lay-a-lovely-floor-to-replace-it point, it’s not like you can just decide not to finish ya know. I know your’s is going to look lovely {sandy walls and all} I can’t wait to see the progress! πŸ™‚

      That’s too true, Kadie. It’s the realization that you HAVE to put it back. You can’t just leave it the way it is. Progress is being made, slowly but surely. I’m an instant gratification girl, so this is testing my patience already! πŸ™‚
