his crib was tucked in a nook that will eventually become a closet – somehow we overlooked the minor detail of building a closet when we were building the house.
so, at the height of my busyness this summer, i took on the challenge of switching the kids’ rooms.
against my husband’s specific request.
you see, he knows me well.
when i am really busy, i tend to want to add on extra things.
it doesn’t make any sense to me either.
but my sister was here and we rose to the challenge.
it only took us about 45 minutes to move all the furniture.
i still love the girls quilts i made for them years ago. there are so many colors in them, that they go with anything.
the double dressers are more than enough to fit all their folding clothes.
eventually, i want to make a little cushion for the window seat, and hang a tiny chandelier above it.
the little red & white “kitchen” (as we call it) was my grandmother’s, and mine as a little girl.
the bookshelf was given to us by some friends.
i’m thinking of painting it brown with maybe a dark pink back.
i just know the soft green is too pale in here.
i love it in here even more!
i just mod podged scrapbook paper on top of these letters.
i’m thinking of redoing them, ’cause i’m kind of tired of these prints.
the little stool in between the beds were from my grandparents’ neighbors’ house – people who were very dear to me.
the vintage lamp has the lamest shade on it that really needs some attention.
i’ll get right on that.
i have nothing else to do.
here’s the closet substitute.
it is way too small.
all the hanging clothes are squeezed in so tight, its ridiculous.
although it doesn’t look great, i have a clear hanging shoe organizer screwed to one side.
its perfect not only for organizing shoes, but also belts, scarves, and gloves.
my husband’s guitar sits in the corner in here since he plays worship songs for us some nights before bed.
