Brookie's getting out the toddler bed. Emmy's getting out of the crib. And the toys are getting (the hell) out of my living room ::applause now::
We have a 3 bedroom home, so when we moved in it made most sense that each girl had their own room. Fast forward 2 years later, and we've somehow managed to outgrow the house we thought would fit us juuuust right.
So? It was time to make some room. That delivery? 2 twin beds & headboards. (Hold me.)
Growing up, I shared a room with my sister. I liked it, she didn't. Then again, she's also 9 years older than me so I see her point. However, our girls are only 22 months apart. They're buddies and into the same things. So the plan is to put both girls in Brookie's room (the bigger room) and turn the nursery into a play room.
Brooklyn is beyond excited for her new big girl bed. And I'm beyond nervous about Emily skipping the toddler bed & going straight into a twin. Don't worry though---Pinterest is helping us with precautions (more on that later.)
I'm also SUPER excited about getting to redecorate the nursery & make it a fun/girly/whimsical area for the girls to read, color, play, whatever suits their fancy. Brookie's room is already painted a fun yellow color (SW Friendly Yellow) and will have some tweeking done to it, but nothing too major like the toyroom. And being the gemini that I am, I've gone back & forth on what color to paint the walls & how to decorate. Again, Pinterest has been good to me and I think I've finally got an idea set in motion. It's going to have to be done a little bit at a time, but I'll be sure until the big reveal to post sneak peeks.
Like right now. I am positively smitten with these prints I just ordered from Gallerie Anais on Etsy.
And here's a few more ideas I'm loving (for the time being...until I change my mind for the umpteenth time)...
I'm also on the hunt for an Etsy seller or shamazing artist to create a custom print for me for the girls room. It's a verse from our favorite book & for some reason, I can't find any online :( And if you have any tips on redecorating or having siblings share a room---TELL ME!
Or maybe don't tell me....sugar coat it. They'll stay in their beds as soon as lights are out & not move an inch til daylight. Yeah, tell me that.
