Miss Dainty's room is currently the one with the bigger closet, while Baby D's room is really nothing more than a catch all room with a crib smack dab in the middle. There's Mr Hubs' drumset, a desk, an extra crib mattress, and containers in the closet in that room. Such a great baby room, eh? Miss Dainty's room is a constant disaster. The girls share the closet, and I hadn't figured out a system that Miss Dainty could use in helping me maintain order when it came to the clothes. There were clothes just about everywhere... clothes and toys. The toys were in containers in a 9 cube shelf, which I thought would work great, but apparently they just have way too many toys. So my first goal was to reorganize the closet and to put away all of their clothes.
The top right photo is the room's before picture, and is what Miss Dainty's room looks like "normally." There was just no child friendly organization for clothes or toys. Bottom right is the closet's before picture. Ack! No wonder I hated putting clothes away, I didn't want to face that!
My goals are:
Organize and put up clothes.
- Reduce amount of toys.
- Organize and put away toys.
- Paint walls.
And then, Baby D's current room will become Miss Dainty's/guest room. She's been asking for a bigger bed, anyway. She doesn't like how narrow her twin size bed is. This bed was what we originally wanted to get for Miss Dainty's room, oh two years ago. It's a single bed which turns into a double and has drawers for storage underneath. Pretty awesome. I might still go with that one, or I might just get her a full. I think the Ikea one would be best though, so that she has the option of having more space if/when she needs it.
I'm really looking forward to working on their rooms! Thanks for the inspiration Emy!
