Shared Bedroom

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.

If you haven't already seen them, check out the photos of their new playroom!
