Options 2 & 4 are neck-in-neck. I'm having difficulty deciding how to paint the room! I need to start painting next week the latest!
Here is a picture with the top 2 paint samples & decals:
Left or right? Whatever will I do?

I am far too excited over these rugs I found today! I felt the need to share:

I bought stuff today!!!!!!!
Now I'm getting a little bit more excited. I am holding a yard sale on Friday to sell off the Princess & baby stuff to make money & room for a JUNGLE THEME!!!!! See below for pix of today's purchases, but first:
TAKE THE POLL!!!!!
For those who know me, you will be shocked that I waited until Blogpost #3 to bust out the poll feature. But it is here & I need YOUR help!
WHAT COLOR SHOULD I PAINT THE WALLS???????
Refer to the previous post, (Just Like) Starting Over, to see the walls with the picture rail & window frame. The pink & purple used in the examples will be the same. Vote for the winning combo on the right side of this page!
AKA: "The Lazy Option". Don't vote for this out of pity for me unless you really love it! Walls remain the same pink & purple it is now. Base board, picture rail & crown molding will be a light green. The window frames will be pale yellow.
Keep the purple on the bottom & paint the top a pale sagey-green. All trim will be pale yellow.
For those of you paying attention, this is remarkably like option #2. However, in option #3 the base board & crown molding are yellow, and the picture rail & window frames are pale pink.
"The Tinkerbell": dark foresty-green on bottom, pale bluish-purple on top, all pale yellow trim.
TO HELP YOU DECIDE:
|Wall clings I bought|
With the aid of my assistant, Heather, I bought these adorable wall clings today. The plan is to use the second & third ones on the walls on the upper section and use the first on the wardrobe (which I can say with 90% certainty that choosing the colors to paint the wardrobe will be the next poll).

We have ordered Crib Beds for both girls this week. More on special needs beds later! The beds will be that medium wood color.
The "before" pictures:
|Wall #1 Maya's Crib|
Wall #1: Maya's Crib
Shorter wall with entrance from hallway. Her "big girl" bed will go here as well. It will take up the entire wall up to the window.
Wallpaper border will be removed. Well, what Maya has not already removed herself. Everyone's a critic. (note her little legs in photo)
|Wall #3-Please Help Me|
Wall #3 is up for grabs!!!
|Wall #4-Julia's Crib|
I have been collecting ideas on Kaboodle to keep them organized. I haven't bought anything yet, so it's all open for debate:
Ok, I'm kinda proud I just figured out how to post that!

I have decided to create a blog about the process of turning my twin daughters' nursery into a big girls' room! For most parents this would be a very fun & exciting time. For us, it comes with mixed emotions: my twins are severely disabled due to a metabolic disorder called mitochondrial encephalomyopthy.
