Phoebe’s big girl room transformation is coming together. I think I’ve got all the structure/storage in there and now it’s time for finishing touches — painting a table and chairs, organizing shelves, making a new quilt, filling (or not) some bare walls.
For storage we ended up going with the Billy bookshelves from Ikea. I picked them for two reasons, one the shelves are adjustable and two they have the cool magazine shelves for displaying books. I think we’ll probably end up with more stuff in baskets so there’s less visual clutter but for now it’s fun for Phoebe to see everything that’s been jammed in her closet all out and ready for her to play with.
For clothes I replaced her changing table/dresser with an in-the-closet solution, the antonious again (same thing as art cart). So far so good. I worry that the drawers are a little sticky to pull out and I wasn’t sure what I thought of the wire baskets but it’s worked well so far. And it fits in there nicely. I’m thinking of getting the same for Oscar’s closet.
I even found a spot for this cute doll wardrobe we got at a garage sale years ago that’s been living in the basement. It’s the perfect home for my grandmother’s lamp that has a crazy-short 10″ cord!
This is her favorite spot… tea party. I love it too. a nook! I gave up having the bed centered under the window so it’d create this cute little hangout.
I think we’re doing pretty good for the small space. It’s cozy. And if there’s one thing we’re all about here it’s the cozy.
