a girlie room

The girls’ room has been purged, cleaned, scrubbed and rearranged.  I spent the entire day Thursday working at it, filled up five bags (four to donate, one to trash) and ended it with one sore back and two happy girls.  I’d say it was a mission accomplished.
We decided to move the beds for a change of pace and for a place to disguise messes made on the floor when they’re playing.  And the direction of the cubby storage means I don’t have to see the perpetual mess from the hallway.  It’s the little things that make my house peaceful.  I know there will be messes, but if I don’t have to see them all day long I’m a happy momma.  I love to walk by and see neatness, and I know that maintaining neatness is tough for little girls.  So I’d rather hide messes by clever furniture placement.
The dresser holds some special toys and books, including hand crocheted Morton that was Zac’s as a boy.  He’s wearing the orange shirt up there.
And in case you were wondering, here is what it looked like before.  Scary, huh? In my defense, I let it get messy during the week because I knew I’d be cleaning everything out anyway.  But it was still pretty bad. 
Today we tackle the boy’s room.  Who has a bigger mess than the girls to deal with.  Wish me luck, I’ll be needing it (and some Advil).
I’m sharing with Heather at Blessed Little Nest today.


  1. I have two little girls who share a room, so I always LOVE to see what other people do to share space. I feel like I'm perpetually cleaning and purging and wonder where in the world all that stuff comes from!!

  2. i love the beds that way! so clever and cute!! and of course super lovely ;)

  3. very pretty room! Love the bedding!

  4. great arrangement! well done!

    the kids rooms are actually pretty decent most of the time because I've got several systems in place that help them get things put away easily - now if I could just think of a solution about the stuff the always drag out into our living area - bah!

  5. I love it! Looks Very Cozy...and I "LOVE the butterflies!
