I’ve been pokey at sharing pictures of the boys’ room, because first of all the trim work is not 100% done, and second, each time I go up there it looks like, well, a kids room—not super-neat. SO finally I just decided I’d share these pictures that I took the day they moved in, and if I actually get that ‘perfect’ DONE AND CLEAN picture later, I’ll share that too.
It is teeny, but in a fun cozy way. The boys love it. I can’t believe how much storage space there is under the beds! The first picture is taken from above. The door is to the left, next to the plaid bed, and on the far wall you can see the adorable window my husband installed. The room also gets light from a skylight and a window in the family room, both of which are high enough to peek over the 3/4 wall of the new room. I really like the airy feel that the 3/4 wall gives the bedroom. The wall is 7 feet, but the ceiling in the room goes up to 12 feet at the peak.
This second picture shows the view of the room from the window-bed. You can see the way the wall doesn’t go quite all the way to the ceiling. You can also see the cute little halogen touch lights that the boys have over their beds for reading. You may also be able to see the really cool paneling we put around the room. It gives the room a fun, rustic feel, and I was excited at how nice the pictures looked against the ‘plank’ look of the walls. It’ll be even better with all the trim done. I’ll try to remember to show you a final picture later.
Oh, and yes, the big shebang for which I need the fancy dress IS a New Years thing. I will share details and pictures after I get back tomorrow. I found some cute shoes, and this afternoon a dear friend brought me her whole jewelry box from which to choose. Too fun!!!!
