I’m not necessarily prepared to show you guys a Grand Room Reveal of the kids new shared room because once I took photos, I saw that one of their beds was poorly made, one of their new bedspreads was actually not on the bed, but an old, unmatching one, also, there was a fan in the middle of the room. And in every photo, at every angle, ALL YOU SEE IS FAN.
While taking the photos, I’ll be honest, I noticed these minor imperfections and I was all “I’m 35 weeks pregnant, I DO NOT CARE.”
And then I downloaded the pictures and yes, I care.
Very, very much.
So, to backtrack, for all of their lives, Anna and Noah have had their own rooms. We have a four bedroom house. We are about to have our fourth child. Some of the children were bound to share, so we decided to give Anna and Noah “the life experience” (heh) of sharing a room. When we approached them with this idea, they were all “uh, no thanks. But the offer, you know, is appreciated.” And then I said the magic words: BUNK BEDS.
And they agreed. Happily.
The trick for me was creating a space that was gender neutral BUT NOT BROWN.
This was part of the room before:
This is basically the same section, after:
I found the room color on Pinterest, this was my inspiration.
I downloaded the photo to my iPhone and used the Sherwin Williams app (free!) for color matching. It was right on.
The color is called Supreme Green. It’s like a light shade of mint chocolate chip ice cream (minus the chocolate chips.) It’s perfect.
Here’s another shot, of the other side of the room:
The bird artwork above the dresser and the shelves was a project the kids and I did. I had an idea of what we could do and to watch it come to life on one beautiful Sunday afternoon with my two kids was awesome. We had a lot of fun doing it and they are SO proud of the finished project.
Here’s a peek of the during process of that project:
And you know, WE LOVE BIRDS in this house, so it was perfect for all of us.
So, there you have it. A bunch of peeks. Just for you.
Maybe someday I’ll get that top bunk made properly and move the fan and then re-clean their room and take after shots one more time which means I should have the grand reveal for you in about two years.
Just giving you something to look forward to.
