Estelle Room Update
2013/02/04 2 Comments
It’s been awhile since I have posted about the progress on the kids’ room(s). Technically, it is one room with a doorless doorway that separates two small rooms. Each space is defined enough to have it’s own look. Estelle’s current room was her former nursery, and we haven’t moved any of the wall hangings to accomodate the new set up. Although, that shuffle will probably just be limited to the non-plaster wall opposite her bed to make touch ups easier. We’re not going too crazy with the redecorating this time. We will likely do some room shuffling again in the next 2-3 years with the hope of squeezing two single beds into one room and adding a sofa bed for guests in the other room…some way, some how.
Anyways, on with the short tour (it’s a small room).
I think we’ve only made two changes since our last post, the addition of the net canopy and the kid’s coat rack as hanging storage. Both are from IKEA. We’ve done some minor rearranging of bins, baskets, and toys. Those seem to be ever-changing.
The kitty mobile below has been in the room since Estelle was a wee baby. Sometimes, we name the cats and tell stories about them before bed. They may get moved again if I ever finish some pom-poms for the canopy. You can find this mobile and many more mobile designs from Salty and Sweet on Etsy.
There’s nothing too remarkable about the area around the shallow shelves. The two vintage suitcases hold her dress-up clothes. We may need to add to the case collection as she adds to her dress-up collection.
One quick photo of the baby’s room. It’s still purple, and will remain that way. I have slowly been trying to take away the more girlie things in case we bring home a little boy. The crib is nearly ready, I just need to empty out that pile of Estelle’s outgrown clothes. There’s still much to do to get ready for baby, but it mostly involves us bringing stuff up from the basement, sorting it, and giving it a good wash.
Thanks for joining us on the tour! Please ask if you see something you like, and you want to know where to get it. I will do my best, the rooms are a good mix of new and vintage.
