Pink is my favorite color! - Well not really

So in this house we're purchasing, there are three bedrooms upstairs. We don't need three bedrooms (much to my family's disappointment.) Therefore, I'm turning one of these rooms into my Mary Kay office. And yes, by office I mean it will probably have all of the farm folders as well. But the room that I'm wanting to turn into my Mary Kay room is black.

Go ahead, read that sentence again. But wait for it, it gets better.

Black with one yellow horizontal dotted stripe. Like a highway stripe. Halfway up the wall. With the yellow caution tape around the top-like a border.

And it was a girl's room.

But it's ok. I'm going to take care of it. It just might take a few coats of primer, or a few hundred. And then......this is what I want!'s so pretty!

But with dark wood bookshelves, holding all of my Mary Kay product. And a big table in the middle to do facials and parties at. No bed, but I love the the chaise lounger on the side. I mainly just love the pink stripes. Though I may opt to do something a little more subtle in the color contrast. But I've also found some other rooms that I like and may use as inspiration. I'd love to get feedback and thoughts.

What would you like to see when you come to my house for a Mary Kay facial?

This one seemed more simple and maybe more even with my abilities, (thought not necessarily my music taste.)

I LOVE wainscoting. Love Love Love it. And how gorgeous is that with the bright pink. I don't know, this might be more my style. I just don't think it's real 1980's split level house kind of style. Might not quite go with the sparkly popcorn ceiling and brown high-low carpet. Oh yes, the carpet, that's another issue, but not one for today.

And this one, hoo-boy. I think it may be a bit high class for my taste, (especially since the first thing that popped in my head when I saw it was hoo-boy.) But it sure does look good in the picture. I think it might give me a headache though.

And then, while I'm really having fun with my new Mary Kay room, how much fun would it be to make everything in my home a little more "sophisticated" and "special" and "pink."

I don't think that Cody would love his mommy anymore after that.

Cody may love it but what would mark think?! And who is the musician in the picture, I can't tell. And quick, give me the days you want to start painting so I can request off and come help!! Love you : )

Well, the musician *cough cough* is Miley Cyrus. And Mark has already given me a dirty look for even jokingly saying our dog should be pink. And who knows when I'll be painting, but hopefully June 7th, and 8th. But don't worry if you can't do it then-we'll find a date you're open and I'll make you come work then.
