Welcome to the 4 Moms, 35 Kids open house tour. We’ve toured the yard and entryway, the kitchen and dining room and the school/living areas. This week we’ll peak into some of our bedrooms (more bedrooms next week) and you’ll have the opportunity to link up your bedroom tour posts.
Home to our 4 boys ages 11, 8, 4 and 2. (I posted about how I decorated this room for $20)
Our kids enjoy being able to keep some of their books beside their bed in the rain gutter book shelves, perfect for bedtime reading.
Each of our children’s bedrooms have a CD player and I generally put the Bible on CD on for the little ones to listen to during nap time. We also often put on stories in the evenings since our kids have early bedtimes.
We don’t have any dressers in this room because both beds have built in drawers under them. However, things still seem a little crowded, perhaps I should move the beds around…Like my window mistreatment? Not as amazing as the master (if you’ve never visited her home decorating site, you should), but it’s my first try and I’m pleased. The ‘valance’ is an old shower curtain.In yesterday’s post about keeping bedrooms tidy I mentioned that we use hooks in each of our bedrooms, here are the boy’s set of hooks. They get some heavy-duty use.
The treasure box is where one of our boys keeps his junk priceless treasures. You can see another one over on the right side of that shelf.
Little girl’s room
After Bella was born (7 weeks ago) we moved the three oldest girls out of this room into an extra bedroom downstairs. Now this room is home to our 7, 5 and 7 week old. (Well, the 7 week old isn’t in living in this room, yet.)
Just a note about the paint color in this room, it’s a nice light, bright apple green. It’s not as dark or as yellow as it appears in these pictures.
Here is another mistreated window. We purchased the pink tulle at a yard sale and used silk flowers as accents across the top.
The area rug is from Pottery Barn via another yard sale as are the white spreads on the beds and the butterfly hangings on the walls.
Rather than me continuing to tell you, just assume that if you see it in our home it came from a yard sale or Freecycle. God provides more than necessities, He also provides a bit of beauty.Here are our little girl’s hooks, not currently as well used as the boys, but give it some time. I have a wall shelf with a sweet, scalloped edge that hubby is going to hang above the hooks to finish out this wall.
I love having enough room in the closet for the dresser.
Next week we’ll continue the open house tour with our two remaining bedrooms, the big girl’s room (I’ll be asking for suggestions here) and the master bedroom.
Now visit the other moms of many to see their sleeping areas:
