Poesy's Bedroom: A Work in Progress
We've been working away on getting unpacked, and just keeping up with life in general. Finding a starting point is the hardest thing for me, because I'm terrible about jumping around from room-to-room. Yesterday, I took a good, long look at Poesy's room and decided to conquer it. Her bedroom is far from done, but it's nice to have a space with little chaos. Here's where I started:
The room wasn't terrible to begin with, and Poesy has been insistent about keeping the "dotty" wall and the "lello" door. Ooookay. That made my job incredibly easy. I used the existing rope shelving as a book shelf (which is perfect!) and kept the room as simple as possible.
Johnny helped me hang the Poesy photos because... well... I'm not really what you would call a "measurer". I just bang some nails in the wall until I'm happy. He's a good balance in that regard.
It's nice to have a breath of air without boxes stacked everywhere. Oh, and Poesy has been feeling a little down about missing her old bedroom, so it was nice to see her reaction when I finished. She's happy to have her own little space again, and told me she wants to live here forever. ;)
This little room makes me so happy. I found the dollhouse that Johnny and I built for Poesy hiding in our basement, and as soon as she saw it, she squealed with delight! I love that I get the opportunity to make special things for my kids. This actually goes hand-in-hand with an IG campaign I'm a part of right now called #CreateALifeYouLove for Kathy Davis. Kathy Davis is all about following your dreams and curating a life that is meaningful to you. If you're interested in following along (or participating, which would be even better!) you can follow me (@skunkboy_) and @KathyDavisBrand. Make sure to tag your photos with #CreateALifeYouLove!
