(kid's room before makeover)
We finally completed the kid's room! Of course it's an organic process, and will continue to evolve over time - but I'm so please with the way it's turned out.
(kid's room after makeover)
I decided on this double bed from Ikea since the kids like to snuggle when they sleep, & then these two matching side tables. Simple, wooden & pretty.
I found the duvet cover at West Elm and I think it pretty much makes the room.
I originally thought I'd take down the cheery yellow curtains because between the duvet + curtains + wall color, I thought it would be too much, but in the end I love the combination of fun colors. The room feels so kid-friendly and happy.
The paint color is Jardin by Sherwin Williams and is both calming and joyful.
Bud installed the low, L-shaped shelves just last weekend and they make a perfect spot for the kids to play with their toys - June's into Calico Critters right now (ahem, and so is her mother) - and still keep things off the ground.
The bookshelf is something we've had forever - I found it on Craigslist years ago - and it is one of my favorite pieces of furniture in our house. I spray painted it white when I was pregnant with Truett :)
Their closet - not pictured - has an overflowing toy box (that Bud built when True was a baby), a shared dresser & lots of hanging clothes. Thankfully the doors shut.
I'd still love to hang a mirror and a printed map of Paris (once we figure out how to mount it) and I'm dying to find a spot for the gorgeous teepee Santa (+ Bonnie) made the kids for Christmas.
What'd you think? Anything you'd change or recommend? What works in your house?
PS - here's a great storage bin round up - so you can have your cake/kids and a tidy house, too.
Other makeover projects: the kitchen renovation & the living room. And oh, oh, oh our half bath is almost finished!! It'll be interesting to see how much is resembles my original wish list :)
