I’ve made a few updates to the kids’ room I made over last Spring. We had them sharing for a year or so, but now this room is inhabited solely by our seven-year-old son and given his sister her own space. It didn’t take much to make it his rather than theirs.
After moving one of the twin beds out, the blank wall felt unbalanced. Moving the bookcase over there fixed the problem. The bedside cabinet is a placeholder until I find one I love, but it works for now.
The bookcase is now home to toys and homemade creations.
The room needed more lighting, so we added a cute, graphic light box from Litecraft. Hello! It’s bright, but it works well nestled in the bookcase. Isn’t it fun?
Back on the opposite wall, I filled the nook left by the bookcase with a mid-century tall boy that I found on eBay.
What else is new? Well, the rug – I swapped out the little rug from Eleanor’s nursery for an inexpensive flatweave one. It needs to be bigger, really.
We added a trundle bed so this can be the guest room when needed.
A keyboard sits on the wall where the other bed used to be. It gets more use now it’s in the bedroom. An adjustable stool is light enough to move from the piano to the drop-down desk when needed.
All these little updates have kept the room bright and fun, but definitely a bit more ‘boy.’ I still love how happy it is in here. Just like it’s occupant!
