Hi friends! Popping in today to share a quick before and after. The girls' school is having a used book sale so I decided it was time to tackle the bookshelf in their bedroom...
Well they are looking much better now!
Ahhh. That picture evokes such a feeling of peace and serenity. :) I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts! (The glitter guitar on the top of the shelf Addison just made at a birthday party and the "Sisters" album I created on-line I shared in this post.)
Of course I know the books won't stay lined up all perfectly like this and I don't care if they do. And of course toys will inevitably make themselves at home. As long as we keep books in their category (because it makes my life easier and I'm all about making my life easier) I'll be happy.
A few of you have previously asked to see pictures of my girls' room. I don't have pictures of everything, but these are some random shots I was able to find that I took on different occasions. Most of the pictures I have are of their bunk beds.
We bought the bunk beds and bedding when Ellie was two! That's my little peanut on the bottom bunk in March of 2006. I know - it's Kole with pig tails! :)
This picture is more recent. I had just cleaned the toys off of their beds (the beds are always covered in dolls!). The bunk beds we bought at a local store and the bedding was from The Company Store for kids. The bedding is a little faded from multiple washes, but other than that it has held up really well. The girls have always just slept on the top of these comforters with a blanket over them. I don't make bunk beds every day! I am SO ready to update their rooms, but we want to wait and do it in the new house because we'll get the girls their own bigger beds.

All set for Easter!
A lot of good memories in this room. I've checked on my sleeping baby girls every single night in these beds. Even though I'm excited for them to have their own rooms in the new house, a part of me will be so sad to leave this sweet little room they grew up in. In a way I'm glad we still have over a year before we move. Not quite ready to say good-bye yet!
I'm off to check on my sleeping babies right now. :)
Have a great Wednesday everyone!
