It’s taken me ages to finish EO’s bedroom, but I’m so happy with how it’s turned out!
A Review of Progress:
You may remember the closet project from a year ago. I still like to come in here and just look at it sometimes!
Then the new paint and board and batten made a big difference and covered some of the unsightly cracks in the sheetrock.
EO’s pop-up trundle bed was finished just before Christmas, but the room still wasn’t ready to move him in yet.
Most of those tools went into the closet when it was built, so they had to go somewhere else before EO could move in. We bought Tony a tool shed that holds most of it, and I moved some things out of the storage area in my closet to make room for some of my craft supplies.
And the Update:
And now we’ve finally made this space EO’s. It’s a little cramped currently because of the crib, but the kiddo’s not even two yet – I’m glad we made the decision to keep him contained awhile longer. And he LOVES the room! He has his reading nook by the window and can reach all his books from the chair. (I say all his books, but 80% of them are actually down in the library. He has his own cabinet down there.) He helped me put the clock on the wall, and like his mommy he’s obsessed with clocks!
We moved his pictures from the nursery in here, and he loves pointing at them and saying, “Pictures!”
I left a few craft items in the bins on the top shelf. Between the closet and the dresser, the kiddo has plenty of storage space!
All his stuffed animals and memorabilia are displayed on the wall shelves, and swapping the desk for this dresser really opened up the walkway to the bathroom.
