Alright! Today I am finally sharing the finished kids room!!!! I’ve shared about 1million photos and asked for so much feedback (on my IG stories), and here is the result: a shared space with an adorable woodland theme that will hopefully grow with the kids!
My goals were simple: keep it *mostly* gender neutral, and give each child their own defined space. This was a super affordable room makeover, because I had a lot of the decor, and a few pieces were actually given to me by a lovely online friend! I’ll reference the stuff I bought / where everything is from in the bottom. Enjoy!
We are about 2 weeks out from the kids officially sharing this space (right now SJ sleeps in our room still, but all his clothes/diapers are in this room, and I’ve been trying to start doing his naps in this room as well). I don’t think JJ will have any trouble sharing “her” room, but time will tell! One of the things I love about the floor/house bed is that it creates a sense of privacy for her, so she has her own space. I also like that she can get in and out of bed by herself (this has its pros and cons) which I think will help once baby boy is sleeping in their room as well – JJ can easily leave her room/bed and play when she wakes up, instead of crying in her bed and waking her brother! Once baby boy has outgrown his crib, we’ll build a similar floor bed for him as well and have the beds on opposite walls with the window in between! I am excited to see the kids grow into this room together, and hope they have many happy years of rooms haring ahead of them!
