So Little Brother will be here in approx. 11 weeks.
Right now his room is non-existient.
Well, it exists but it's more of a play room that's open to the rest of the house than an actual bedroom.
Somewhere between 1954 and July 18th, 2011 someone decided it would be a good idea to turn the 3rd bedroom
(which is in the front of the house)
into a tv room.
(we are assuming it was probably was an old man wanting one of those newfangled "man-caves")
When we bought the house, we knew we would be turning this room back into a bedroom once we had another little wiggly one around these parts.
The time has come to figure out what we want decor-wise and to do a little construction.
(with help of course. I love Chris, but have you met him?)
So this is what the room currently looks like from the dining room:
And standing in the room looking at the dining room:
(that whole opening is going to be walled off, and the new doorway will be moved to the
very left side of the wall so we will be able to close off all of the rooms in the hallway)
We get to find homes for Bennett's toys and all of the other stuff we inadvertantly filled the space with! Not.
(it's not you, it's me)
So once all of that is out of the way, we get to do the fun stuff.
That is where I come in.
The walls will be kept bright white to match the rest of the house.
(yes, I know we are boring...but it all flows together like a mid-century ranch should)
I present you:
( I don't know why Polyvore shrunk it all into the center. Hopefully you can still read the labels.)
We actually don't need to buy much since Bennett's room was/is so similar.
We are re-using his old crib and changing table/dresser.
We are also moving the cube lamp from B's room into the nursery.
(the soft glow is perfect for night time diaper changes and feedings)
The same green chair is being used.
All that is left is the shelf,
(I LOVE that IKEA came out with a lacqured version of this!)
and the artwork.
(one of which is just a piece of fancy wrapping paper...though I'm still trying to convince Chris that the map is awesome and kind of makes the room)
The inside of the closet will be painted the same gray color that we used in Bennett's room, for a little added interest.
I can't wait to see it all come together!
(thank you tax refund)
What do you guys think?
Happy Friday Friends!
