We recently combined our girls to one room. Everyone had their own room but we felt it was time to try combining the girls for several reasons. One of the biggest challenges with combining rooms is double the stuff; double the clothes, double the animals, double everything. I knew the only way to make it work was to get bunkbeds! I found a steal deal at Walmart on THESE bunkbeds and we have loved them. When we were looking they were half off! They are sturdy and pretty; both things I love!
I tried to spend the least amount of money possible doing this room. The best way of doing this was using what I already had! I took a few things from both of their rooms and changed up the layout. I had gold accents scattered throughout the room as well as soft pinks and yellow! I love keeping things neutral for this reason. It is really easy to switch things up when the majority of your main items are neutral!
If you have been following along on instagram I shared how I shopped my own home to give this corner an update. I took these old cheap Walmart frames scattered around my home and spray painted them gold ( I love using the Rust-oleum brand). I put the prints in the frames from the book collection by Julia Rothman my daughter got for Christmas. It was such an easy and inexpensive update.
There were also a few practical things we upgraded for the girls, like a sound machine and dimmable wall lights. THESE wall lights have been wonderful. They produce a lot of light and I love that I can turn them off or lower the light after the girls fall asleep! I also love THIS sound machine. We have tried lots of sound machines and this is the best by far! It is loud and does not have any clicking noise throughout the night!
I bought matching throw blankets and the little round pillow for the floor. I got all of those things on clearance or at Dirt Cheap (one of my favorite places to find good deals on Target items). It was an easy room to redecorate and combine.
The girls love playing in their room. It feels light and clean and I love getting on the floor with them and playing doll house or baby dolls with them. The room is inviting and simple… two of my favorite things!
One last item I want to share with you is this sweet doll you see in the pictures. This doll is from Land Of Mae. My friend Stacy hand-makes each doll. There is so much detail and love poured into each doll. The doll you see here was a custom made doll. It has my daughters name on the ballet slipper, her skirt is removable, we chose everything from skin color, to hair style, to dress pattern. If you are wanting a special heirloom piece for your little one go check out Land Of Mae!
