Progress on the girls big girl beds is happening in real time. The girls decided that they were done with cribs 2 weeks before my best friends wedding, which was followed by a work transition, the death of my husbands grandfather and a seasonal cold that rocked the whole house. I mean, most projects take us a long time to complete, but this one continues to linger as I find time to sneak in to work on minor finishes, like caulking, puttying, sanding, etc. It’s one thing when you can complete projects in a workshop, it’s quite another when they’re being completed inside the room of your children.
Since I wasn’t planning on the girls moving to beds until they were at least 3 — this project came as a bit of a surprise — I had to shuffle a few planned projects to the back burner. I didn’t want them sleeping on the floor on crib mattresses for the next year, although in all fairness it would have been totally their fault 😉
That said, we’re not doing any additional changes in here. I will have to rearrange some furniture and there will be a few other minor adjustments, but this is more of a bed swap and not a room makeover. Although, two twin beds take up quite a bit of space, so there is definitely a huge design change to swallow. I do have a few things I’m planning to do in the next few months, but the only other big purchase is a rug.
I’ve been wanting a rug in here for a while. We’re not ready to redo the floors, but our brown bedroom carpets make me sad, so I want to add something to cover them up and add some much needed contrast. My girls are lighting rods, so I’m looking for something bold and spicy. Here are a few of the rugs on my hit list:
Magical Thinking Maimana Woven Rug | Magical Thinking Rag Rug | West Elm Sonora Shag Rug | Munsey Flatweave Rug | Calypso Rainbow Striped | Grovetown Chevron Rug | Mancalla Striped Lattice Fringe | West Elm Boho Textured Rug
