Ashten's room!

Another one of the exciting happenings of the weekend was going to Abilene to help Ashten decorate her bedroom.

Ashten and I started talking about decorating her room when I went to visit my sister, Rebecca, two weeks ago. We did some serious brainstorming and I left her with instructions to pick out a paint color and have her room painted by this weekend (her walls were actually a stark white color to begin with).

As you already know, I get very excited about things like this. I guess since I don't have a house yet. (and probably won't for a while!) I LOVE to help other people decorate.

I drove in early Saturday morning and we set to work, sale shopping, picture hanging and room arranging. She and her husband did a great job with the paint - the color was stunning!

Here is a before and after picture of her room.
Isn't it lovely?

We did the WHOLE thing for under $140.

Could her puppies get any more adorable?
They were little models for me while I took pictures.

The room is great! From smelling the yummy candles to seeing the sheer curtains catch the breeze and the cheerful blue color on the walls - it is so lively and peaceful at the same time!

Asten, I had so much fun working on this with you!
p.s. tell Dustin thanks again for all his help!

Let me just tell you, I LOVE sleeping in my room. All I want to do is be in there. You will be proud b/c it is still clean and I'm making the bed every morning :) Also, when it rained last night, I lit my candles, opened the windows, let the curtains blow in the breeze and read a book. I couldn't have done that without your awesomeness!
