And here's the after...
The dot wall becomes a prominent feature after moving the beds to another wall. It also opened up a wide area at one half of the room for play.
The Ikea chandelier ($40) is a lovely touch of awesome. And, if you're taller than me (say, my husband), you have to duck. That's as short as this light fixture gets. Which, is ok for me, since it doesn't hit me or my daughters in the head!
So, yes, we are still a work in progress. But, it's come such a long way that we are pretty pleased with the current state of things. I love the fuzzy rugs from Ikea ($10 each!) and the texture and softness they bring into the room as well. The girls love moving them around, "sleeping" on them and sitting on them to read. Who needs chairs? Anyway, this is our after!
Have a great week everyone!
