I owe a big thank you to two people named Heather for helping me with this project.
The first is Heather of My Many Moments. I asked her for decorating help way back in November when she came up with this design board:
|Heather's Design Board|
I tried to adhere as closely as I could to it while still trying to use as much of what I already had as I possible. I loved her idea of using neutral items that would grow with my girls and letting the color come from toys and art we already had. (I still really want to get those knobs for the dresser!)
Thank you so much, Heather!
The other Heather is my mom, who just spent five days visiting us. She helped me with everything from ideas, to putting the bed frames together after painting, to watching the girls for me so I could work on it. Thank you, Mom -- it would have taken me ages to finish without you.
The best part is that my girls love their new big girl beds. Mattresses were previously on the floor to prevent injury from falling out. Which you can see used to happen -- the falling out part. Not that it ever woke anyone up.
More details on the twins' room to come in another post or two.
