Mary Elizabeth's favorite color is PINK (obviously!) so she really went for it, using Sherwin Williams "Exuberant Pink", in a satin finish for the walls and in a latex gloss for the desk top . . . with her favorite black and white zebra stripes for accents and storage pieces.

The room still needs some tweaking but the "bones" are done. Mary Elizabeth is collecting simple black frames and plans to use one wall in the room for a collage of favorite family photos. And she's still sorting through boxes of office and craft supplies that had previously been stored in the attic.
