Fortress Friday #22

Okay, so this week I’ve been slacking on here because I’ve been super gung-ho, working on a new room for myself.  My step-sister lives more with her mum, so I was told I could redo her room so its mine.   But it is a lot of work.

IMG_2645It took 3 coats of white to cover all of the mess that was from before, but we did it.  And with minimum paint on the floor!  Next I had to pick out a color and go buy it.  I chose a really light blue from Olympia.
