Do you remember when I talked about redoing my twins bedroom way back when? If not, no worries it was awhile ago, eleven months to be exact. I still haven't gotten around to it. Time, money, space. Space, money, time. And of course the indecision that plagues me whenever I have the chance to make big changes. Not to mention their room is tiny, so I've felt limited in the whats and hows. But much to my happy surprise my oldest decided he wanted the smaller room (fresh start me thinks. sometimes it's easier to just move than clean), so I think it's finally going to happen. Yesterday we took the day to move him into their room. And now that Fisher's room is filled with abandoned objects that didn't make the cut into the new room, plus being filled willy-nilly with M+L's room full of belongings, many of which I realized we really could do without, we are going to use it as a temporary dump to pile other worn/tired/unused items into it. I am going to dig around my house and get rid of things that need to be gotten rid of, then clear it out all out and start over for M+L too. There very well may be yard sale in my future.
I am still pretty indecisive in the direction I want to go, but with a bit larger of a room I will certainly have more options. These are a few images I have gathered for inspiration. I love bunk beds, but they terrify me. I am just not sure I can handle the daily stress of my children pushing each other off of them either in play or in haste. I would have to get one of those "___ days since last injury" boards. But that little house bunk bed! How cute is that? I also really like the end-to-end beds in the second photo. And considering we already have two similar beds that's the route I am gravitating towards. I was an only child so I never had a shared room. Right now they don't mind but I'd like to set it up so they can grow into it as well (again with the least injuries to each other as possible). Did any of you share a room with your sibling/s? Any advice you can give me on things you liked or hated or wished for?
I am signing off for the week so I can start this giant project we now have set in motion, if I wait a minute too long I am afraid the whole thing will become a sort of monster under my bed that I cower and hide under my blankets from - I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
