I have a messy secret. It can be found behind the doors of the entry closet. It is a hodge podge of crap that we have accumulated over the past 10 years. I don’t think I ever took everything out of here to purge and clean. Ever. And it shows. It was time for an entry closet redo…
As you know from previous posts, I got rid of the crib in my daughter’s room and have been working to convert it to a toddler room. You can see the inspiration board here. I have been working on some other art projects for her room. You and see these projects here and here. In addition to those projects, I have painted the room, replaced the skinny oak trim with 1x4s painted white, painted the closet doors, set up the new twin bed, got new bedding and created a girl room gallery wall over the bed.
I had this fabric take along house done for months and gave it to my son for Christmas but never got around to sharing this on the blog. I made a girl version for a friend’s daughter (which you can see here) and another similar one for my daughter for Christmas. Pinterest has so many girl versions to gather ideas for but it was almost impossible to find examples for a boy version, unless you wanted to make a barn. No worries, I got you covered;).
As you may remember from my last post, we have decided to get rid of the crib in my daughter’s room and give her the twin bed from my son’s room. I wanted to get a queen bed for his room so we have more options for when we have guests. Cue the mini boy room makeover. (Side note, never tell your 5 year old boy you bought him a “queen bed” as he will be mortified and say, “But I’m a boy!!!” It will lead you to needing to have 10 minute conversation about bed sizes and names and he will still be dubious. Just tell him you bought him a “big boy bed.”)
Did you ever decide to do a project and somehow it snowballs into a way bigger project with like 14 satellite projects? Well, that is me right now. I
was am super excited to get my daughter’s room redone but that entails moving the bed from my son’s room and buying him a new bed which lead to needing to make a new headboard for his bed and while I am at it, maybe I should just go ahead and change out the trim in those rooms. And I finally decided EXACTLY what I am going to do to our entry closet to make it much more user friendly so why not get going on that, too? See? I am almost to the point of project paralysis because I have so many ideas and things I want to do that my brain can’t seem to focus on organizing my activity and I am having a hard time getting anything done. Almost.
