Sometimes I get overwhelmed looking at all of the fabulous room reveals on blogs and think to myself, “why can’t I get my room’s pulled together like that?!” But the truth is, nothing is easily pulled together. For us regular folks that don’t have designers working on our homes, it takes time. One piece at a time, bit by bit. And if you’re like me, there will be snag after snag along the way.
For example, Sam’s room.
My little guy isn’t yet three years old has had lived in three different houses. He was maybe 4 months old when we moved out of his first house. The only one that had a somewhat thought out room/nursery. We were then in a rental for 9 months before moving into our current home. Once we moved in here I knew it wouldn’t be too long before he transitioned from his crib to a real bed. So creating a new nursery in this house that would only be functional for a few months didn’t make sense.
This summer he ditched the crib and we gave him a big boy bed. I have a Jenny Lind bed in the garage that I’ve been working on but haven’t finished. His bed has moved from wall to wall while I try to decide flow. I think it’s in it’s final resting place now.
