I'm in desperate need of some advice! My daughter has a very small bedroom that we are giving a "makeover" for her birthday. The colors she has chosen are a cotton candy pink and lime green. She wants both colors on her walls and I just don't know how to do this! She doesn't want wallpaper boarder, which would have been my only idea (to paint the top one color and the bottom the other) Does anyone have any suggestions for me? I'm wanting to keep it to just paint as we are on a budget. Thanks! :o)

I have a couple of suggestions. You could paint 2 walls lime green and the other 2 pink.

You could take a pencil, black paint or anything you choose and create a casual wave across each wall then paint one side pink the other green. horizontal or vertical or diagnol.

You could take a picture frame 8 X 11 or any size that works. Use it to outline nice squares on the walls. Then, paint the wall background green the squares pink or whatever. You can do this with any shape you choose. Or, use a ruler or yard stick and create your own geometric design and paint in your color choices. Since your doing this for a little girl you could draw a simple "doll" house. Door windows, flower boxes, flowers, her name on the door. Use white to draw a simple picket fence. Use a picture book from her book collection and pick a simple drawing to copy from. Use pink and green to accent the house. You can do it. You will surprise yourself when it comes to pleasing your child. Good luck
