The Scrapbook Room is slowly Coming Together

So far my cleaning of the scrapbook room has become a major project.  The room has been tore apart for most of the month with it looking like this for at least a week.

For several days you couldn't hardly move in the room without almost knocking over something..  Well it is slowly coming together and I have actually pulled everything from the entry way wall and the 2 small walls by my work area and the back wall, and I painted them.  Boy did that totally change the look and feel of the room.  Now with the walls by my work area painted I am slowly going through my stuff and putting all my stuff in new homes.  The room is still slightly disastrous, but at least now I can walk across the room without tripping. 

Here is a sneak peak at what freshly painted walls look like.

This is the wall I look at when working at my table.  The paint I used was a light shade of juniper and is a very comforting green.  The Saying and Butterflies are removable stickers from the dollar store, which are very easy to put on and I am totally loving.   i am actually thinking of going to get more butterflies for around the room.  That glare you see on the right hand side of the picture, is actually the light reflecting off the CTMH Prisma glitter I blew onto the wall using my heat gun (hair dryer would work also) while the paint was still wet.  I love this effect, I now have glitter on 2 of the walls by my work table and am refreshed and inspired by the warm glittery feel I get every time I set down. 

Well better get back to cleaning the rest of the room so I can post the complete scrapbook room renovations on here soon.




  1. I was wondering if you were going to add glitter. That is SOOOO neat! I can't wait to see a picture of your room a finished. :-)

  2. Glad you were able to add your glitter despite what the kids thought! Are you still thinking about adding it to the floor as well?
