Well, I think I am finally done with this room. For now at least :)
Let me tell you a little bit about this room. This was the office/bonus room located right next to the master bedroom.
I love this room because it gets lots of light all day long and it is one of the biggest rooms (excluding the master).
In order for us to have an office, we had to put the kids in one room. I know some people are against boys/girls sharing rooms, But I don't see it as a problem since they are still very young.
Since this room was a bonus room, it did not have a closet. That wasn't a problem, I just went and picked up a nice sized wardrobe from IKEA.
I wish all rooms had wardrobes, that way you can move it up against any wall you want and get the wardrobe of any size you want.
So after moving the furniture around, I came up with an arrangement which seems to work.
This room used to be light brown (I forgot to take before pics)
I chose to paint it Manhattan Mist by Behr.
I chose a neutral paint color so it would go for both the boy and girl and I would still be able to use lots of bright pops of color throughout the whole room.
So lets go take a look:
Laminate floors were installed in here by the previous owner
The shaggy rug is from Target and is nice and soft to sit and play on
The left side of the room has both of the beds
The bedding is from Target
(I bought it before my son was born last year, so they no longer carry it)
My daughter's bed is from IKEA, they no longer carry this one.
My sons crib is from Babies R US
Some toys are stored under the bed
This is on your right as you walk in
4 bins full of toys on the lower shelves of the changing table
First shelf is more cloth diapering/baby things and the rest are more toys (sigh)
I already took a carload of toys to goodwill, there is still to much
most of the clothes are folded in the dresser, however, some clothes and coats are here.
Shoes, diaper bag and hats/mittens are on the lower shelves
The window is nice and big with lots of light which is why I love this room so much!
The curtain panels are from Target
I needed a place for the books, so this bench/shelf from Target works great.
The kids can sit and look out the window and it serves a purpose to store books
The dresser is from IKEA
The lamp is from Target
And off course a little girl needs her bows and ribbons
The mirror is thrifted (I just spray painted it white)
The shelf was thrifted and spray painted white, it is
above my daughters bed, and keeps her water bottle next to her during the night since there is no room for a nightstand
I bought this curtain wire from IKEA, so I can easily change out artwork and photos
Some free artwork I made

Since this was a office, the door is glass. Which I love for the kids room, because even with the door shut, I can still keep an eye on them.
That concludes our Kids room tour, I hope you enjoyed it.
Thanks for visiting.
