Yesterday I made quite a bit more progress in the little girls' room.
I hung the B L O O M letters above Saragh's bed, bought and hung curtains (I'll be adding black out fabric as soon as I can, anything to get them to sleep in longer!), and bought new duvets. I am so happy with the results so far. Anna is really insistant about a rainbow on the wall, so I need to figure out the best way to do that and get it done.
The most exciting things in the room (for me, anyway) are these little spice racks bookshelves. I really, really love bookshelves that allow books to be displayed forward facing. I truly believe that they are more enticing to little kids, expecially pre-readers. Book spines are boring, but book covers are exciting! The books have already been changed out several times by Anna and Saragh since hanging these Monday night, so I know it's working.
There's a little more to do to finish up the room. The closet door needs to be fixed so that it will close easily and the two walls above Anna's bed need some things hung on them. I'm so pleased with this room! It's such a far cry from the before pictures.
Yeah. I told you.
