Two little sisters have been happily sharing this bedroom over the past few months!
We decided to move the girls together to the same room to transition the nursery to a playroom. I wasn't sure how it would turn out with a 3 year old and 20 month old sharing the same room, but it has gone surprisingly well! My sister and I shared a room until we were in junior high and I always enjoyed that growing up. I'm hoping our girls will want to share a room for many years to come.
We made just a few tweaks to transition Stella's big girl room to their shared bedroom.
We added a dresser to hold both of their clothes. Each of their birthday pictures sits on top!
I tried to make the best use of the space by storing small things in a few pretty boxes under the dresser and bed:
The rack on the wall now holds two backpacks!
The pile of library books has grown taller with two little readers:
I kept the rocking chair in the room, although it is awfully hard to fit both girls on my lap!
The big kraft letters over their beds were my favorite addition. I bought each of them for $10 at Joann Crafts and Stella helped me paint them with purple acrylic craft paint. I hung them up on the wall with 3M Command hooks.
We put Hazel's crib along the wall where a big toy storage unit used to be. The toys have now thankfully been moved to the playroom!
It is a little cramped and sometimes one of the sisters wakes the other one up before they're ready, but over all it has been a good move.
