Boys room updates


   We've been working a lot on Jude and Phin's room over the last month.  Phin used to be blocked into his bed (we had it turned backwards with the headboard at the opposite end and then two bed rails on the sides.) but he managed to figure out how to squeeze his way out. There was no point in having his bed face the wrong way, since he could climb out anyway, so we turned it around and took one of the side rails off. 

Months ago I ordered matching white comforters for their beds, with the intention of making duvet covers for them. I'm still planning on doing this but it will probably be after Isaac is born. It's so nice to actually have their beds made with matching bedding (such a pet peeve of mine.)!  I bought twin size flat sheets to make the duvets out of, they're white with a simple khaki/green ticking stripe.

The bench was given to me by my Mother-in-law and it fits perfectly at the end of Jude's bed with a big wire basket of books underneath.

The horse picture was taken by a friend of mine from high school, it's one of my favorite pieces!

The armoire in their room was a piece I refinished years ago, it's from a vintage Thomasville bedroom set that my Aunt and Uncle gave to us years ago, the set includes the limed dresser in Isaac's nursery. They keep mostly toys in it but it also hides their CD player and extensive stuffed animal collection (EVERY Sesame Street character). They each have a dresser in the closet (plus the one in between their beds) for clothes.

I still have a lot I'd like to do in this room (like install the moroccan light fixture I've been hoarding for 2 years.) but I am shocked at how much we've gotten accomplished in the 10 months we've been here. This is what the room looked like before we moved in.

SOOOOO much better!!!!!!!!!!!!
