boys room

While we do have four bedrooms, we have always wanted the boys to share a bedroom.  This is something we may revisit when they are a bit older but as it stands now, they are sharing a room.  Now having said that, it is rare that they both stay in their own beds through the night so it doesn’t much help in the keep each other company aspect.  In the end, a king bed is really for two adults and two kids, right?!  Is my sarcasm coming through?

Here is a look back on the initial design for the boys rooms… and as you’ll see, we didn’t much deviate from that.  I’m a big proponent for investing in quality pieces from when they are born so you can’t years of use out of them.  I am happy to say, that the only Ikea thing in their bedroom is the Ribba picture frame.

our boys, our renovation

boys get spacey

If I could design kids rooms full time, I would love it.  They are so much fun to put together.  For the boys room at our old house (take a peek here & here) I used a lot of pieces that I knew would grow with them or that we would be able to utilize in other parts of our house.  When moving in to Oh Mid Mod we decided that the rooms were plenty large enough for the boys to share and the other bedroom could be used at their playroom, which I cannot wait to do!  Locke is pretty obsessed with all things space right now.  Let him tell you about the 5 dwarf planets and how he would like to build robots that walk on Mars when he grows up… That Montessori education 😉  We are putting the finishing touches on everything right now then I will take photos of the finished room which MAY end up being the first room 100% finished in the house, ha!  They deserve it.
