What was I thinking? When the kids said they wanted to switch their bedrooms around, I thought this would be an easy one weekend project. Um, no.
Have you heard from me? No. That’s because I can’t get to the computer in the living room there is just so much stuff in it from these bedrooms!
My girls have decided to split up after a few months of discussion. This was a big decision for them; they are 7 and 14 but liked being together. Funny, it was the elder who did not want to leave the younger. Sometimes I’d go in there at night and see my little one all snuggled up sleeping with her protective sister and my heart would melt. One year at Christmas they hung lights around the perimeter of their room and they never took them down. They said they were fairy lights and liked to go to bed with them twinkling.
So I took a ton of pictures because even though it’s time for change, I am not really ready for it.
All gone, except the fairy lights!
We actually started with my son’s room. I should be ashamed to tell you the amount of dustballs in that room. He borrowed Lord of the Rings from his best friend when he was in 7th grade. Guess what? 6 years later, we found it buried in there!
I am letting each child design their own room with their own budget. We have done almost all shopping at Amazon.com, they have a ton of bedding sets (I never knew they did bedding!). Over the next few weeks, I’ll share the results.
Right now we are having the floors refinished….like I said, I thought this was going to be a weekend project! Argh!
P>S> I am doing a swap with Abbie from Whimsy of a Staggering Woman...now this is the kind of swap I like, thanks Abbie!!
