Jessica's Room (Before and After)

BEFORE: T.V. was in the corner on a card table, the trundle bed was breaking apart. Andrew's clothes were in the drawers, so we had to get him some plastic bins to put them in. The bottom trundle bed was really uncomfortable for adults.
AFTER: We put the boys' old bunk beds in Jessica's room and put the toddler bed in there as well. Despite it being a full size bed on the bottom bunk, it still looks pretty roomy with her dresser being in the closet. Eventually, I'll get rid of the Strawberry shortcake theme and get something a little more boyish for Jacob when he is ready for the toddler bed. Right now this room serves as a guest room. After baby moves into the nursery, this will be Jacob's room. If we have a girl, this will be the girl's room.
Here is the closet. We took off the closet doors (it just made it easier to hide toys and junk in. We burned Jessica's dresser (the one that that was top heavy and fell on her) and gave her Marcus' old one. I hate the stickers, but oh well. We put the TV on top of it, but we will reinforce it somehow even though it feels very stable. We went through all Jess's clothes and got rid of a bunch of stuff she had outgrown or just didn't wear. It feels much more manageable now. Most of the kid's toys are in the playroom/nursery. That will be the next room I try to organize.

Wow a guest room, did you ever think? What a good job you guys did. I am so happy for you. It looks like you worked so hard. How did you sleep? Love you!

I LOVE organizing, and, it seems, so do you! It is a wonderful way to keep the provisions God has given us. Most of us have too much stuff and don't take good care of it. Good girl for being such an inspiration to many!

I hate stuff! I threw away bag after bag of broken stuff, junk and bits of stuff that just add up over the years. I do like to organize, unfortunatly it takes a little money to do it sometimes.

Candy, God has blessed us! It won't always be a guest bedroom, but for now I will enjoy it being so. I don't mind cramming kids in one room for a night either if we have a grandma or grandpa spending the night. They're kids! They love sleeping on the floor! said...

I love it! I'm always rearranging things and moving things around to make room and keep the junk from piling up.

And yes, kids LOVE to sleep on the floor, don't they. My middle child preferred to sleep on the floor for the first 3 years of his life. He has just recently started sleeping in his bed all of the time!

Btw, thanks for adding me to your blogroll!
