Call us crazy but my husband and I have undertaken a new project in our house. Last summer we sold our home and moved across town into a larger home. It was very hard to leave. We had custom designed our nursery and spent 3 months painting murals on the walls while I was pregnant with my daughter. It was beautiful, colorful and uplifting.
Since we moved in July our children have had off-white walls with nothing on them, while we decided what we wanted to do.
Well we have come up with a plan, and here it is. Doesn’t look like much yet. We decided to keep our kids in the same room. And have designed raised beds along one wall for them. They really wanted bunk beds but they seem to be okay with this setup.
We are 2 weekends in and hoping to finish up before the end of the month. We painted the walls white and as I was trying to figure out what to paint on them, my daughter piped up and told me she would like a party on the walls, hmmmm how to do that. Hopefully in a few weeks you will see something that looks like a party in the kids room.
Oddly enough the colors we chose to use came from their bath toys. Every time I gave them a bath I was drawn to the colors of these foam bugs. So I decided that was what I wanted to use in their room. Just looking at the picture makes me so happy. I can’t wait to see it on the walls.
