There are two reasons why we changed the boys room around.
1. Our 2 year old wakes up with the sun. This was fine in the winter when the sun wasn't getting up at 5:30 a.m. Now that Mr. Sun is showing his cheery face so early we are not so keen on our own Mr. G showing his face so early. We all know what a 2 yr old with a lack of sleep is like. Thus, we needed to add some curtains to this room. It already has blinds but they are sheer weave so we can still take in the view when they are closed and their main purpose is to block out some of the heat.
2. Our oldest (who sleeps on the top bunk) has been asking to take the beds apart for a while. I guess the bunk bed novelty has worn off. He has been sleeping on the top bunk for about 2 1/2 years now.
Here is the bedroom all three of the kids shared in our old house. It was designed for a community more geared towards families with teenagers, or retired so therefore this is the only other room on the main floor other than the master bedroom. It is a large sunny den/office.
I secretly miss this room. Hardwood floors for a bedroom. That white wall you see is a brick paneled wall (loved it). Someday I will duplicate it in this new house. Simple unisex decor. All 3 kiddos all in one place (sometimes bedtime was party time but it always made you smile to hear them giggling).
This is what the bedroom looked like in our new house before we switched it around a bit.
You can see in the photo below that with the bookshelf, and dresser by the windows there was no room for the addition of curtains without completely overcrowding the space.
Here is their re-arranged space.
I am looking for some inspiration for what to put over each bed. Any ideas?
And the new curtains. I just picked them up at wal-mart as they were cheaper than making my own, and someday I might jazz them up a bit.
We had to move the dresser into the closet in order to fit both beds comfortably.
So what do you think? Good move or not? Any ideas of what to put above each bed?
