Are your kids opinionated? Mine definitely have opinions on everything, from how I should cook dinner to what they want to wear. As long as it's not harmful or too annoying to me, I generally let them do what they want (within reason and rules of course!). It's not going to kill anybody if they wear mismatching clothes or have wild hair.
Of course they have opinions on how they want their rooms to look. So far, I've been able to steer the younger two towards something that both of us like. My oldest has requested a blue and green room. I like this combo, but she wants her dresser to be a mix of blue and green. I'm not sure how to paint this dresser without it looking too crazy. I think I'm having a hard time figuring this out, because I'm really just a solid-color kind of girl.
She wants a bright peacock blue, like this vanity, and also a bright green. She's a tomboy and doesn't like anything too girly.
I'm thinking something along the lines of this room for her:
Will you help me figure out how to paint this dresser blue and green?
Stripes are an option. But what kind of stripes?
Only on the sides?
Various horizontal thicknesses?
Or I could paint the body one color and the drawers another color...kind of like this?
These are the exact colors she likes....I guess they don't look too carnival-ish together.
I love O'verlays, but have yet to try them. Maybe I could do a blue base and then paint the O'verlays green? I have to measure to see if they even fit on this dresser.
Help a girl out! What should I do?
