Upon move in we were met with the most disgusting of paint colors your eyes have ever seen. Dark brown and burnt orange, I wanted nothing to do with this mopey space. So I painted over the drab with light and bright green, added loads of girly touches and tada!
When the house was built this room was originally designed as the master. The two nooks were to be the closets and directly across on the other side of the room was a door (since drywalled over) that connected to a full bathroom (which is now the girls bath) to complete the master suite.
The builders also designed another super large area on the right side of the house. It came unfinished by default though if you wanted to pay extra it could be finished complete with a bathroom and would function as the master. So somewhere along the lines that happened and this room ended up being an extra bedroom. The only problem is this room is huge. Waaaaay too big for one kid. So for now it's our playroom, P & T share a room and E has a room all to herself. Whenever P & T want their own space we will most likely redo the playroom. Drywall it up and make this one large space into two more reasonably sized bedrooms.
But I hope that Parker and Teagan will forever want to share rooms. They will, right?!?
The nook on the left is our cozy reading area. Typically there's a fun bright bean bag in the corner but, like most of our toys, it must has grown feet and moved on to another spot in the house. The Big Bird chair is a throwback from when I was little. And behind those sparkly curtains is my hands down all time favorite part of this room:
DRESS UP ROOM!
Filled with dresses, crowns, skirts, shoes, all the girly things. I love seeing the girls go behind their princess curtains in normal clothes and emerge princessed out to the max.
Another update in the playroom, as well as the rest of the house, was a new door. The doors we moved in with were plain Jane flat pieces with no detail. All were swapped out and really make our house look that much better. Same with the carpet. The day after we closed we had all existing carpet pulled out and replaced. Nice, clean and fresh, Yes please!
Next to the reading nook is Barbie paradise. Even I love playing with this dream house. On the other side of the room is our cozy futon space which doubles as a fun place to nap on occasion.
And last but not least, the art wall which showcases our mini Picasos. Never are we short of artwork in this house!
I had to snap some pics when this room was organized because let me tell you, it's not always this tidy!
And to wrap up, some random pics from our long weekend, made even longer the week before by a sick Teagan. Made even longer the week prior to that by a sick Parker. Made even longer by an ear infected Emerson...One day we will all be germ free!
Patiently waiting for our healthy cookies made of nothing but oats, bananas, and choc chips. Parker ate them up, Teagan tried to avoid all the oats and pick out the chocolate (smart woman) and I avoided them like the plague.
Sisterly love :)
What happens when Parker steals my iPhone for selfies
Not only is this daddy-daughter love cute, but also adorable is that Parker woke up from nap, found Teagan's kitties and brought them down for her to cuddle when she woke from her nap.
Teagan's art skills have exploded. Doing awesome!
I never ever want the rocking the baby to sleep stage to end <3
