F&F House Tour Kids' Quarters

I apologize for neglecting my blog for so long, but today's post is a good one!  Recently I have been crazy busy and feeling a bit uninspired.  Then yesterday my husband picked up a little girl's mirror at a garage sale down the street and suggested we hang it in the girls' closet.  They love playing in there anyway, so why not?  As you'll see from the pictures below, my husband's innocent $1 purchase started quite a project.  I'm proud to say that, besides buying and hanging the mirror, I did everything--and all in one weekend!

Welcome to the girls' room!  Come in and take a look around!

About a year ago my husband and I moved Lil Bean out of the nursery into her big sister's room.  The girls think sharing a room is wonderful, and this frees up the nursery to be a guest room slash storage room.  We made Dr. Seuss characters with plywood and paint and hung them around the room.  The chandelier was originally in our dining room. 

This is how the room usually looks.

Completely. Out. Of. Control.

So I emptied the closet, removed the door, and started painting.  Do you remember the blue laundry room?  

Now the closet matches.  Does the saying, "one person's trash is another's treasure" apply to mis-tint paint?  I think it should.  I love this color.  

The white closet ceiling is now the same dark blue as the rest of the bedroom.

The shelves got a fresh coat of pale green matching the toy box.

And the bargain mirror that started the whole transformation was hung!  I even cleared out all the junk that was on the top shelf so I can store more books, puzzles, and out of season clothes.  Out of reach means off the floor! 


Ahhhhh.  A little spring cleaning feels so good.
