Since I found out I was pregnant, we knew that we had some major “shifting” to do in the house, as in who’s in what room. Our house has 2 bedrooms upstairs and 2 downstairs. Presently, we are in the master upstairs, but with bébé 2 coming in May we had to decide whether we would move downstairs, move Mavrick downstairs, or pair both kids in 1 room. We opted to move downstairs because #1 – Our furniture wouldn’t fit in Mavrick’s current room nor would we be able to put a crib and a bed. #2 – Seeing the two kiddos would be 22 months apart, I felt that Mavrick was too young to be in the basement alone. Even if he LOVES the basement, he’s too scared to go by himself…. so we decided to move downstairs and keep both kids on the same floor.
That being said, the bedroom downstairs is TINY!!!!! and well only our queen size bed and 2 night tables fit in there, so we decided it might be a good idea to add some storage on each side of our bedside. That way we can put store some books, additional decor and it adds a little oomph to the “plain” space.
Here are a few examples I liked…
These bedside bookcases are just a part of the room renos. We actually plan on tearing down walls (seeing there wasn’t a closet in the room prior to moving in it) removing the suspended ceiling and replacing it the real stuff, painting, adding ogees, decorating, builing the closet space… all in what, 3 weeks time.
I will show our progress shortly… with my wonderful iPhone cam pics. ha.
