Ready for more Little Girl Bedroom Updates!?! When we first moved into our home, this was Little B’s room. It’s a bright, good-sized room, but something about it just didn’t seem right. So I waited to unpack for way too long!
This room was the only bedroom that faced the front of the house and I really wanted more privacy for her — a funny request for someone who moved from a very urban area to a much more rural area!
Then I got the brilliant idea to move the boys up into the playroom. Actually, they helped me get the idea by leaving a trail of toys between their bedroom and the playroom (rooms that are at opposite ends of the house).
I thought about making this Little B’s room initially, but because of the awesome closet, I settled it within myself to let the boys share this room when we first moved into our home.
When the boys got the boot, this room sat empty for a day and then Moni and Pa came into town to see our new house and bring us a queen sized mattress for our guest room! Thanks Moni and Pa!
A blank palette — totally ready for some love!
One of the biggest perks in moving the boys upstairs was an awesome storage closet for seasonal decor!
I started making plans to add shelves to this closet, until —
I attempted to organize Little B’s closet which is large, but has a difficult layout.
It’s a dark, narrow closet that just doesn’t seem to work with her toy/clothes combo.
Shoes must be stored high so the American Girl Dolls can each have a room of their own.
Recognize these storage baskets from her old room — that room was so organized — I miss it!
I like to keep a few old baby toys in her closet so cousins and little friends have girly toy options when they visit.
After a long attempt at making this closet work, I decided I would have to break the news to Stud — we needed to do one more room swap — Little B and the Guest Room needed to switch and then I would be totally done with room swapping!
He gave me an enormous sigh, then sweetly went to work painting Little B’s room with me — More Gray Owl.
I’ll show you lots of progress in Little B’s room, tomorrow!!!
