Boutique chic

Are you guys as excited as I am?! It's the day we have all been waiting for.....
All I want to say before unleashing a before and after picture extravaganza (and maybe the longest post ever)  is thanks to all of you for being so patient and encouraging, thanks to Emily for letting me "play" in her room, and thanks so VERY MUCH to my sponsors for making this room happen. I could not have done it without you and you changed a gals life.
Here you go lovelies...enjoy the eye candy. Let me know what you think. This was an accumulation of  four very long months worth of work. We converted a laundry room into a little girls paradise...I like to call it Boutique chic. We changed flooring to amazing FLOR tiles, patched holes, rewired lighting, installed ceiling speakers, re-worked the duct work, hung a tv, painted all of the trim and molding etc. We made sure she had furniture fit for a queen as well as a closet for her royal clothes. All in all, it was a 6 day long labor of love fiesta. I hope you love it as much as we do. 











and here are just some more images of the room for those of you who get all giddy looking at it,  like I do....if you don't, just humor me haha. 

































I hope you guys love all of our hard work. I cannot wait to hear what you all think. I just have so say a HUGE shout out to the amazing sponsors...

Thanks many times over to you and Ryan for all your hard work and to the people and companies that sponsored you. The room is awesome and so are you!
