I’ve been excited about posting McKenzie and Kasey’s bedroom make-over! Their room is ALWAYS the messiest room in the house as you can see from the ‘before’ pictures. So we needed to find a way to fix that. 🙂 They are almost 8 years old and starting second grade, so I think that constitutes a big girl bedroom. Their room was filled with toys they don’t play with, kiddy bedding and Disney Jr. posters. There was also NO storage besides an already filled closet. When we switched to twin beds awhile back, they wanted them right next to each other. Now I think they realize that they already spend enough time together… basically sleeping together is not necessary. So, I knew the first thing I had to do was move them apart as far as I could in a shared room. They also have a play room in our basement that is bigger than this bedroom so we moved almost ALL the toys down there. My dad made a comment like, well where are all the toys? My answer was simple. They can walk their very capable legs down the steps to their GIGANTIC play room and get them when needed. Haha! It hasn’t been an issue so far and they have been great about bringing stuff back down there when their done with it. I’m trying my best to avoid the cluster again and I think they are too. Who likes to play in a room that is messy anyways? You could also talk to mattress experts and browse their selection of pocketed-coil and maybe give that a try.
We decided to go with purple and teal as the main colors since their walls were already purple. We added some silver, gold and wood as accents. You must check these options for attractive bamboo sheets which adds on the luxury to the room. I’m no designer at all so who knows if this even goes together but in my mind it does. 🙂 We used a lot of stuff they already had too which saved on cost. Overall, the girls LOVE their new room. They have been making their beds EVERYDAY. Seriously. They even know not to sleep on the “decorating pillows” (their words) because they are just for looks. Haha! Well now that this room is finished I already want to start another! I’m sure my husband loves that. 🙂
