Anticipating our host girl’s arrival, we had some room rearranging to do. I originally blogged about Reed and Lena’s room here and here. Very little had changed in the last 4 years. We’ve moved beds, swapped out some stuff to make it more appropriate as they’ve grown, but no major changes.
But, it was time. Lena can’t share with her brothers forever. We liked the idea of Lena shared with our host girl, Big L, this summer and this was a great time to make the break without any struggle.
I was over the moon about decorating a room for girls. Especially my girl, who loves bright colors as much as I do. And, at the same time, I wanted to make some fun additions to the boys room, so they wouldn’t feel completely left out of the room remodel. Here’s what I did with their room:
No more crib.
And lots of new photos, as well as new super hero posters.
And… drumroll, please…. the girl’s room…
(The bible verse prints are available in the Moose Prints store!)
I’m really happy with how it turned out, especially because almost everything was repurposed from elsewhere in our house.
Lena knew she was getting a new room and would be sharing with Big L, but we had done all of the work to surprise her while she and Reed visited Aaron’s parents (and the changes in Reed’s room were a surprise to him, too!).
When we showed it to her, she said, “Wow. Awesome. I knew it was awesome.”
