Shared Room Inspiration Board

In case you didn’t know, I’m the oldest of four (actually, almost five) siblings. My mom is expecting a baby girl this fall, and we’re all really excited! 

Because “baby sister” (as we’re calling her right now – we haven’t picked a name yet) will be sharing a room with me and Emily (who is two), we’re going to need to figure out how to fit another bed+ more storage into our room. Here are some of my ideas!

Bunk Bed w/ Trundle

We’ll probably need to get a bunk bed anyway, but a trundle would be cute + a future bed for “baby sister” if necessary. The ones with drawers are adorable too! Another thing I love is that you can separate them into two beds, which would be great someday 🙂

Storage Cubes

I’m thinking about getting some of these for the closet (right now the closet is pretty crazy) and adding some cute baskets. Image result for boho color scheme

Colors

I love these colors because they’re bright and fun, but I might add some light pinks as well.

Cactus/Cacti

Cacti (that word is SO weird)  are so cute and I’d love to incorporate them somehow… maybe sheets like in the picture above? I’m not sure!

Do you share a room with a sibling (or two!)? Do you have any ideas for me?

Lane’s Room

Hey everybody! It’s Lane! Mom sometimes makes us a temporary room because she doesn’t have much space. She stores all the pieces in large bins. Today I got to make my own room. Actually, Sunday. I took all the photos on my tablet except that have me in it! 

Look closely, the captions are small!

Welcome to my room! Mom took this photo of me in my room.

Here’s what my bed normally looks like. I always make it, but I generally have a book and/or my tablet on there.

These are my pillows.

For the pink, blue, and polka dot blue large pillows, I used a packing poof and a baby washcloth.

Then I wrap the cloth around the packing poof.

For the small throw, I decorated a piece of fabric.

Then, I stuffed it with more fabric scraps and duct taped it together. (One of my first crafts.)

The red pillow is a red sandbag.

The tablet is a non working iphone 3, and the book is from american girl school.

I love lounging on my bed watching a movie!

This is my storage unit

On the top shelf, I used an iphone box to make a box for books and notebooks.

The saucer is a mini gift box lid.

Lane keeps her robe there as well.

(Sorry for bad image). Some clothes are also kept on the storage unit.

On the desk, Lane will sometimes dump her purse or hair stuff.
WP_20170723_15_04_09_Pro
Bye, Y’all! (Lane is taken with southern drawl- hey I rhymed!)

A peek from the air.

My light comes from a window right above the space.

The posters are hung on the wall, aka the armiore.

Thanks for reading! Sorry, I have not been posting, I was on a trip and have been doing a lot!
