The state of the room before was just blah! Toys everywhere and remnants of nursery that used to be. The first task was to purge toys! They seriously had way too much! I think I filled 5 trash bags full!
I bought them bunk beds in the hopes they would start sleeping together. We used the top bunk to store laundry I was too lazy to put away, and I shared the bottom bunk with Lily, hahaha!
I knew I wanted to fill the wall space with a gallery of sorts. I found all of this in one day from Hobby Lobby, TJ Maxx and Marshalls. The picture frame in the middle is from K-Mart and the collage of photos is from Minted. The illustration not hanging is from the talented Martha Napier. I won a mother's day Instagram contest with her and Old Navy and she blew me away with this special gift!
We found this fun frame from Two Women and a Warehouse in Savannah and I just added some string and mini clothes pins to interchange fun art work from the girls. If you're local and you have not checked them out, run!
I took these rod iron tea cup planters from Ava's tea party birthday party and spray painted them. I'm using them to store hair ties and sorts! Its a perfect addition to the room!
I took an idea from Pinterest about using wire baskets as book shelves. I found these three from Home Goods and spray painted them. I hung them with command hooks and added some of the girls' favorite books. Voila!
I added new bedding! I love the cute patterns and lighter colors for the room. It brightens the whole space. And see that chevron rug? I also found this steal from the same consignment store as the picture frame and it was only $16! I was ready to spend over $50 on one so I'm so happy I stumbled across it!
I left a couple of things from the old nursery. Ava and Lily's announcements and baby hats they came home from the hospital in :)
I found this nice cubby organizer from Walmart for $68! It's great quality and was so easy to assemble! At first I was thinking about painting it white but I love how the weathered wood looks in the room! I'll eventually replace the pink baskets I think with some wicker ones. But I used what I had for now to store and hide their toys.
Now that I am done with this room it will be on to the nursery! I can't wait to reveal my exciting plans with you!
