And Now For February

So here it is the February room. I chose this room for the shortest month since it is farther along than the others.

The Dreaded Girls Room!

It's a small room only 9x15. Brianna and Syrina share this room for now, much to Brianna's dismay. Hurricane Syrina does go through here on a daily basis too. The first thing is some kind of additional organization for all her toys.

I also need to do some wall cleaning and possibly repainting since she has taken to drawing on her walls. This is her pic of something over her bed.

So her sister did not feel left out, she also got over her bed. She's so thoughtful!

I also need to do something with this area. That is the desk I gave a revamping to this summer. If you can see the bark chair buried under the mound of clothes that is the one I want to repaint. It may have to wait til summer though. I want to spray it with "Ballerina Pink" that Gina @ Shabby Chic Cottage loves so much. The room is painted SW Familiar Beige with white trim. The furniture is painted SW Reliable White. I plan on doing the cream and tan colors in here with small touches of soft pink. In the box is a new desk light that I got at the antique mall to replace the one in here. I also have an idea for Brianna's headboard. Not an original idea, just an idea. I also thought of putting her bed along this wall for more room. I have to think on that some more though.

I think this is going to go. I am thinking of putting some shelves up instead of this bookcase. Maybe around the desk?! My kids are garbage collectors. They love collecting junk.

The top of this has just turned into a catchall. It's Syrina's dresser and all her clothes do not fit in here. The cubby door is full of receiving blankets. I need to go through the clothes and get the ones that don't fit out. She LOVES piggy banks! I started her a collection of the. The white one with the flowers I got at a flea market last spring. I am thinking of taking this out and repainting the 2 nightstands from my room for in here. I could put all the girls socks and underwear in them next to their beds. Then condensing their clothes into one chest to save on room also.

This is Brianna's dresser that is too small for her clothes. When I swap out my chest I am going to repaint it and put it in here. It's big enough to hold both girls clothes. I also need to put that 500 lb rack that my Dad made for her Webkinz up too.

She also wants a place to put up more pics. Yeesh! If you could actually see the floor it is new also. We put the wood laminates down in here last winter. I think that I have a bit of trim to finish putting up in here though.

If anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to leave them. I can use all the help I can get in here. Thank you all for your sweet comments on my room! You guys just make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!

I'll be in here if you need me....

well if your kids like to draw on the walls - hows about a chalkboard wall? You can get chalkboard paint almost at any hardwear store out there.
& dont worry - my kids are garbage collectors too! The biggest garbage can in the world wouldnt be big enough for them.
Cant wait to see it all done.

Hi Maggie. This is a sweet room- I can't wait to see the finished product! I have so many ideas for you, but I would take a up the whole screen. If you want my thoughts just e-mail me. (E-mail on my blog) I love the idea above, a chalkboard area for your little huricane artist. I am such a slug compared to you. I love your energy! So motivating!!!!

I have no ideas other than the piggy banks would look great on a shelf that you could place up high ~ they are so cute! Loving your planned color scheme ~ I sure it will be wonderful ~ can't wait to see what you do!
