Small Bedroom Before/After

Howdy! I'm glad you're here.  
This post probably contains run-on sentences, sentence fragments, 
affiliate links, and unnecessary ellipses.  If none of that bothers you, let's be friends.

The last day of my 12 day posting streak has arrived!  Since it has literally been a year this month since I finished sprucing it up, I felt like it was juuuuuuust about time I did a before/after of the small bedroom upstairs, which the two boys currently share, even though I haven't managed to get good pictures of it Blog Reveal Clean.  If it hasn't happened yet, I guess it's never gonna happen, huh?  So you're gonna get photos of unmade beds and clothes spilling out of bins.  It hurts a little, I'll be honest.

It is a tiny room, but it's cozy and loved by all despite (because of?) its quirkiness.

Here is the photo that was in the original real estate listing we saw for the house.  The wide-angle lens makes you think it's some kind of normal size but really, no.  It is itty bitty. 

that's a twin sized bed there on the right

Here's what the wall color looked like in beautiful light with a fancy camera...


But really it had a more orange-y, southwestern flare (to match those 80s light fixtures on either side of the window maybe?), which you can see better here.
The trim and door had already blessedly been painted white, so all I had to do was to slap up some wall paint, change the wall light fixtures, switch to a smaller ceiling fan, and put up some drapes.  Et voila!

crib on the left, bunkbeds on the right


(our master bedroom is the only one with an actual closet.  The kids' rooms both have these open bars + shelves happening.  Probably something to do with making them official bedrooms for real estate purposes or something?)


All these pictures with messy beds and stuff shoved in corners are a definite exercise in humility.  We just can't seen to manage to get better than this these days! I just wanted to show you how these super short bunkbeds are PERFECT for these low ceilings.)

And around the circle back to the crib corner

 Now my favorite part, when I show the same photos again!

    1. THE MIGHTY SPELL CASTER THAT HELPED ME SOLVED MY URGENT CRITICAL RELATIONSHIP PROBLEM.
      I dont know how to really thank Dr. Keke Odin for what he did for me. My Name is Anita Kelly from Los Angeles, i was dating this man who i loved very much for over four years now without any problem in our relationship. so at a point he changed so suddenly after returning from the office and started behaving so strangely. it even got to the extent that he told me it was over and i should never call him again. This was a person that loved me with everything that he had. When i told my friend jenny what happened, she introduced me to a great spell caster called DR KEKE ODIN, the chief priest of all spell caster.a At first sight this man told me all my problems that it was his secretary that used a charm on him. Dr KEKE ODIN told me not to worry that he will help me solve the problem. The following day, i was in the house in a sober mood when i first received a message from my boyfriend that he was very sorry and before i dropped the phone, he called me again to say he is on his way home and that he was truly sorry for everything. To my greatest surprise, one week later he engaged me and we got married. All Thanks to KEKE ODIN. You can contact him through the following means

  5. Will you put Helen in that crib and have a mixed-gender room for a while? Great color choice and drapes in the room. I would probably not have thought about putting in a smaller ceiling fan--good call.

    Do you want more questions? :)

    1. I think eventually, yes. For a while Paul, Ceci, and Mary shared a room until JC and Paul could move in together. Now it's set up with 2 beds and a crib anyway, so we might as well use them!

      Yes pleeeeeeeeeease more questions would be awesome :)

  8. The dark wood will create a soothing mood for your boudoir. However, don't think that oak will not work in your contemporary bedroom. This is far from the case. http://www.easeofmobility.com/best-canes-guide/
