Currently this is what Maddie's room looks like:
And this is Sarah's room...
If you notice there are lots of differences between each room.
I have stepped back (referee) and allowed them to talk it through and
come up with a decorating plan.
Here is their plan:
Colors will be:
Black (Maddie's choice)
Pink (Sarah's choice)
Green (Maddie's vanity is already green)
Haven't picked a wall color yet...
(that could be because Dad has said no to all their choices!)
Sarah is going to get the same bedding as Maddie,
just flip it to the white and black side.
They want to add "their" color to the room
through pillows on their beds...
Sarah's pick for pillow's...
Maddie also want to have Zebra print added to the room.
We (ok, I did add my opinion here) thought maybe
changing the fabric to her vanity chair to zebra...
Sarah and Maddie spotted a zebra rug on clearance
at Lowe's for $13.00!
(Their rug is packed away, but this gives you and idea)
Curtains are still being debated on.
I offered to make them,
if they can agree on fabric.
Any suggestions? Because, you
know suggestions from you would be cool,
where as mom's suggestions are so uncool!
Now the decision of what furniture stays and what
goes? This is tough and believe it or not,
they have figured it out!
All of Maddie's furniture is going into
the room and she is going to let Sarah use her
cabinet with the mirror.
Sarah's small dresser will go in the room,
between their twin beds.
The girls want lights on the wall beside their beds.
Maddie is my reader and this will let her read at
night, but not keep Sarah up.
(Sarah is my night light girl, so Maddie reading light will
give the perfect light for Sarah to drift off to sleep)
They would also like one of these...
Pulling this post together seems like it has been an easy
and happy process, but it had many trials along the way.
It's been fun watching them learn to work
together and having to give and take along the way.
Next on their list is accessories,
I'll be sure to keep you posted!
