In the old house the girls each had their own bedroom and their own decorating style. They are truly opposites! In the new house the girls share a room. They have adjusted wonderfully. It is so much fun to hear them giggling and whispering at night. I always wished I had a sister, I am so happy they have each other.
The one thing they have in common is pack-rat-atitis, as Tony calls it. They keep everything! Today the girls started to de-clutter their room! The plan is to re-do the room and start from scratch. Instead of trying to merge their two bedroom sets together, we are going to sell it all and start over. They are excited to make this space theirs!
What I love most about my girls is that they know what they want and they know they each have their own style. I love listening to them pull it together.
Keeping it real....here is the room today...
As you can see we haven't accomplished anything in their room since moving. Still have the paper shades, orange wall and lots of new clutter!
Here is their plan:
1. Bunk beds in white
2. Maddie color choice for a comforter
3. Sarah color choice for a comforter
4. They want the walls painted a light blue color
5. Built in cabinets with two window seats.
6. A Chandelier
7. I would like to stencil a wall, but they haven't approved it yet!
8. Ruffles and girly touches.
9. Organizational ideas
10. Personal Art
We'll keep you posted as we start this project. Step one is selling their furniture and then we need to paint. The floor is still up for debate. The girls and I are voting for hardwood, but Tony didn't seem as excited. Can you think of anything we missed?
