Welcome to the kids' new room!

Ohhh...this used to be my bedroom, but Violas room was just too small for both kids, so something had to be done :) Viols has been asking for bunkbeds for awhile...she really wants to tell her friends, that she sleeps in the top bunk.

But...let's go in. That huge white thing there is a closet. Gigantic, but we need the storage :) I put some stickers on it to make it a little more appealing to the kids.
Beneath the bed are some drawers one with LEGOs and one with FlexiTrax (Asks new favourite toy!)
This dresser holds their sheets....and the big white thing is Asks changing table, it opens up, and it has little shelves to hold wipes and diapers and stuff. Handy when you have a bathroom that's smaller than your bed -which is what we have. Lol! Again the stickers are there to help me not feel so bad about this taking up room in here ;)
This is also new. The red and blue buckets hold everything from Little People to trainsets. Very easy for the kids to get to their toys, and really easy to put everything away..
The black round thing behind it is a gigantig swing :)

This is their new window. They spend a lot of time looking out at the cars in the tiny parking lot next door! The mattresses are not supposed to be there, they are from the old beds. But I am hanging on to them for a while. Putting them at the bottomof the bed every night...just in case someone should fall out of bed :/

...oh, and I have 21 days of crazy stress left, and then my paper will (hopefully) be all done!

What a cute room! We have the same IKEA road rug LOL It is funny, but ALL kids just love bunk beds! At least the top bunk lol

Good luck on finishing up your paper!

the room looks beautiful! really fresh and bright. I'm sure they love it - a change is a good as a holiday and all. So glad the end is in sight for your paper - and then you'll be able to get back to some stitching - I've missed you around here :-)

Good idea to keep the old mattresses for a while. Is that a horse in the corner? Cute! I always want to know the rest of the story. You mentioned it had been your room. I hope you didn't have to give up your craft room, but on the other hand you couldn't very well give up your bedroom. Good luck these next 21 days as you are working hard to finish your paper. I've missed you!

Looks like a happy room! Good luck in your final weeks - look forward to seeing more of you!

21 days, only three more weeks - hang in there, you'll do it!
And in the midst of all this stress you have been able to sort out a new room for the kids too! That's great, and it looks like a great room that they will both enjoy. I love that little mother hen touch of placing the mattress on the floor below the bed every night. I'd probably have done the same - or a safety net, or something... But she will be all right, I'm sure ;-)

What a great room for your little ones! They must love it!! I just started getting ready to re-do my daughters room, too. She has most definitely outgrown the mint green paint from her nursery days!

good luck in your last days of school!

Lovely room Tine. It looks like a very fun room. I still have a lot of the children's toys like lego in those plastic tubs as they last such a long time and are easy to tidy into.

I hope you do well with your paper.

Here it is, the 21st. Did you get your paper finished, and are you happy with it? I hope so! Now a few days to rest up, and then wheeee - time to play!
