Small window into room redo's

Well, the boys bedrooms are pretty much complete. Still have a few things to do - but I'm moving on to other projects for now.

I didn't just move furniture this time - I went deep into the closets.. cleaned them totally out and started over. I donated 2 loads of toys to Goodwill.. I have 2 bags of clothes and a giant box of books in the back of my car waiting to go to Goodwill as well.

Here are a couple pictures from my oldests bedroom...
 I found this nightstand at Walmart on clearance for $65. Perfect for a kids bedroom.
Here is a picture of his license plate collection - he only has 5 states and one Canadian Province (Ontario) so far. So if you have an old license plate sitting around.. we'll take it off your hands.

And here is a snapshot of the little guys room. I found these bins at Target.. they come in 2 cube sections for $19. I'd show you more of the room, but it's pretty bare. I realized that the last time he had his own room he was a baby - so I don't have anything to hang on his walls and the room is so big it looks empty.

I should have taken before pictures - but I couldn't bring myself to show you. You would have said "Whoa".

But I promise.. I'm doing my closet and our laundry room next.. and I will keep it real and show you the befores and afters.

I have been sewing too - but it's for a baby gift  so I can't show you yet.

Pin It

Having two boys, I have a pretty good idea of what they were like. It's a great feeling to get them sorted from time to time, it doesn't take long for them to fill them up again
