Funny thing about our daughters’ room: when we moved into our townhouse, we weren’t sure how long we would be here, so we decided to paint all of the rooms in neutral colors so that we wouldn’t have to re-paint if we moved.
So we went to Menards, got to the paint department, and my husband says “girls, what color do you want your room to be??? You can pick any color!”
So they picked pink…of course, they were two and four at the time!
As soon as I started putting it on the walls I knew that a whole room that color would be WAY too much, so I just did the bottom third or so on two walls and the rest is a robin egg color (one of the three colors that the rest of our house is painted in).
The girls really don’t do much in their room besides sleep, so we’ve kept it pretty simple. They each have their own desk (from a garage sale and our next door neighbor for free) and a magnetic board (Ikea) where they can keep their treasures, art projects and anything else that they would like.
You probably recognize the bunk beds from Ikea, as well as the blue folding chairs.
I decided to use folding chairs at their desks so that they can easily be relocated to the kitchen when we entertain.
What has seemed kind of funny to me is that they LOVE having their room clean. They don’t mind helping to pick it up or make their beds and then they just stand back and look at it, it never seems to get old to them :)
I also made this artwork for their room:
And I have about 7/8 of a gallon of pink paint left over if you want to use some! ;)
