This afternoon I’m working on my blog and updating some pages and things on here when I realized I never blogged about the girls bedroom in the Colonial. When we first purchased the Colonial we had three beautiful girls and we were pretty sure we were done. We figured that two girls could share a room and one would have their own room until we moved the Master Bedroom to the main floor in a few years. This worked out well for us until we found out we were pregnant. Then we just knew it would be another girl so no big deal, two kids in each room for a while. Well that all changed at the ultrasound when we saw something between the legs that didn’t belong to a girl. So for a while the bubs hung out in our bedroom but that was getting old after about six months so we finally broke down, bought some bunk beds and made all three girls share a room. This room was a beautiful pale green and pale pink color scheme to match their shabby chic bedding. They didn’t like it and so we found some bright and ugly interesting duvet covers at IKEA so I let them repaint their bedroom. They picked out a loud pink color that took three coats on the wall. Here it is, the bedroom that three girls lived in for a year and half!
The closet was pretty small so we added another bar on the bottom half of one side for E’s clothes and then we ended up purchasing an adjustable clothes rack on wheels for the other side because as you can see in the next picture, it was blocking the door to the attic. So this way, we could easily wheel the clothes in and out of the way when we needed to get up to the attic.
I’m not sure how much longer the girls would have lasted in that bedroom, maybe another year or so before it was just too hard with our oldest wanting her own space, different bedtimes, friend’s sleeping over, etc. I’m sure we would’ve figured it all out but now we don’t have to. Everyone has their own room at the new place yet they still sleep together at least once a week! I love that they can have their own space yet still choose to sleep together sometimes. This room was in no way done and I was kind of just letting it hang in this stage until we knew what we were doing with rooms and well, our life! And on a side note, I did offer to repaint the pink room for the new owner but his daughter loved it so I didn’t have to. So far everyone here has neutral walls and it’s staying that way, for a long time!
