School and work have been a little overwhelming and I'm close to being burned out. Include 4 kids 24/7 and yeah you got your perfect chaotic mix. Don't
forget the 3 dogs as well and my mother.
So this summer my amazing ex in laws took the kids again for a couple of weeks and I decided to finish their rooms once and for all. I had the ideas of what I wanted to do with them since I bought the house but they had not translated into happening very well over the course of the year.
Well this summer it finally happened. I dropped my course load to 1 this semester and I had a little time in my hands along with some funds ( finally recovering since the big revamp when I moved in).
First I tackled the boys' room. These two had some serious dust and socks hidden everywhere. I ditched the old bedding sets for some nicely colorful ones I got at Burlington ( love that place) for $30 a piece. Not bad for young kids and with sheets included.
Hit the local DI ( thrift store) for a new bookcase and I found the perfect one for just $15. Killer deal since it was in very nice shape with the exception of one broken shelf.
While at Burlington I picked up a couple extra globes to feed my obsession and to go along with the map theme the boys have.
New hampers and picture frames at Ross for only $9 each and I was set.
Check out the results!
Beds and new bedding. Notice cute hamper in the corner.
I need a new dresser. Still searching.
They loved it. They have even kept the room cleaner now.
For Brenna's room. I picked up some new bedding as well for the same rocking price as the boys'. I had an old and heavy bookcase in my shed that I had planned to paint for her. I dug it up and cleaned and it looked super cute with the old rugged look so I kept it that way.
Also got some new wall decor stuff and hamper to match.
Here are the results.
I'm proud and I think I might take another long break before any new projects.
Well until next week when I redo my room that is.
