It has been a LOOOONG time since I have updated any of you on the progress we’ve been making on the kids’ rooms. The reason for that is simple. We haven’t done much!! Decorating just hasn’t really been high on the priority list. That changed a few months ago when we decided to move the girls’ together in the upstairs bedroom and put Elias in the main floor room by himself. This was the long term plan, and we weren’t planning on making the switch till Adlee was out of diapers, but I guess plans can change, right? After we moved Adlee to the toddler bed it just seemed to make more sense to put the girls together.
So that got me to decorating! It took a while to get things to a place that I am satisfied with, but for right now I’m really liking what we’ve got going on. I hope you enjoy the update.
And just to refresh your memory, the “before” pictures are when the girls originally shared a room before Elias came along. The pictures below are from this post. Matea them moved to the guest room and the little kids shared this room after Elias came home. Now the girls are back together.
Also, real bloggers would have exact replica “before” and “after” photos. I don’t. I probably never will. Sorry.
Ok, so here is the before (looking through the door frame) and a view of the window seat:
and “after”- wall color is Dark Ash by Behr:
‘ What is up with the clock on the nightstand? SO WEIRD.
Ok – another “before”:
and “after” – you can see just barely see the start of the closet on the far right of the photo:
Oh – and here is a little close up of the trunk I painted with that weird paint that I mentioned on facebook a few weeks back. I didn’t love it at first, but I think it is growing on me. The trunk is falling apart (literally), so I don’t want to invest too much time or money into it. I think it works for now!
