Poesy's Bedroom: A Work in Progress

Poesy's Room: 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!  I can't wait to see what you guys post!

  3. Do I spy a room from ABM?
    I've always loved that door. One day when we are allowed to paint our home, I want colourful doors everywhere!

  4. I love her little room! It's so crazy seeing the difference between the room used in the ABM house, and now as her bedroom! I love the shelf though, such a good idea!
