With the addition of a new little person into our home, we had to do some redecorating of the kids’ bedrooms. We have a three bedroom house, which meant that two of the kids needed to share a bedroom. Originally, we had thought about having Gavin and Kayla sharing a room for a bit until the baby was older. However, when we found out that the baby was a girl, we decided to go ahead and have Brooke and Mikayla share a bedroom. Mikayla is a super heavy sleeper, so I know she will do fine sharing her room with a baby that may wake up in the middle of the night.
We had a difficult time finding bedding that had a crib set and twin set that matched. Thankfully, Target came through and we were able to find something that everybody liked. It’s the perfect combination of sweet little girl bedding without looking too baby-ish for Mikayla.
I also made these bow holders to put on the back of their door. With two girls, I have had NO trouble filling it up.
Gavin gave up his crib and traded it in for a brand new big boy bed. I’m not big into character bedding, but I figured if it would get him to sleep in his bed without argument, then I would do whatever it took. He LOVES his Toy Story bedding. I was also able to find some stickers at Target (love that place!) to put on the wall.
It was fun getting to decorate the kids’ rooms. The best part is that we didn’t have to repaint anything. We were able to make the colors that were already up work. I’m sure Gavin will be getting a change in the next couple of years after he tires of Toy Story. We will probably also redo the girls’ room in about 2-3 years when Brooke moves to a big girl bed – we can take our time on that, though.
