Kids Room Re-vamp


My girls wanted to be close.  Really close.
Who am I to deny sisters that adore each other this wish!?


And Monty has taken over an entire space.  He was funny when he was tooling around the shared room saying, "that's mine!" and racing whatever it was over to his red shelf (even fairy skirts and dolls!)  We salvaged 2 of these old school shelves from going on the tip when the school was chucking them out.  I got them powdercoated and they came up a dream.  The red to match Monty's bed that we spied in the rafters of the old shearing shed back on Nic's family farm in New Zealand.  We later found out that Monty's Grandad used to sleep in it!
 


























P.S. That little possum in the hand crocheted cardi thanks Emma! is walking and discovering a whole new perspective on life.
And another chapter opens for her.

what a beautiful room and while its shared they still have their own little place and personality. Have 2 kids boy/girl and have never sorted out the shared space thing. They would drive me nuts in there too I think but toy with the idea now and again so have one room as a sleeping room clearing the other one up for playroom but big sister likes her space and her things way too much and little brother far to disruptive and annoying to her but you have certainly inspired me and shown me it CAN be done and done beautifully. Love that your little man has grandads bed. Cute little walker in her cardi too.

Look at you go with your four children and clean bedroom! Ha! How long did that last...
Savvy looking far too grown up with all that walking business, and I spy another far too grown up looking blondie there too...

Wonderful new set-up Amy!! It is fun to be able to relate to all the photos since I've been there. Grammy would love these pictures too with her Raggedy Anns given such a place of honor. How come Savvy's always looking up??! I too would like to know how long that beautifully arranged room lasted! Do you have any after pictures!! xxoo

Oh yes, one other thing....Grandma Sullins would love seeing the family tree she made on Monty's wall. Happy!

That bedroom should be in a magazine, it looks amazing (unlike my girls very messy rooms!) Kate.
