Ever since Violet was born three years ago, Avery has been looking forward to sharing a room with her little sister. I had to keep telling her that Violet was too small and she wasn’t ready, but finally, a few months ago, we made the transition. It took some adjusting (ie. Violet was over-the-top excited and would keep Avery awake with her bouncing and chattering), but they’ve adjusted and now love sharing a room.
I gave the room a little makeover to celebrate the transition. But honestly, it was just an excuse for me to putter around and change things a bit, because that’s what I do.
I went to Ikea a few weeks ago, and it was so good to me. I found lots of bargains for the room, including the cork board, round metal plate, and light. I bought the cardboard ampersand at Hobby Lobby, painted the sides, and covered the front with scrapbooking paper.
I also bought the shelves from Ikea, and the print in the frame is a free download from Lindsay Letters. It fits the room perfectly.
I made a bunch of tissue paper pom poms to hang over the dresser. The cute chevron storage bin came from Wal-Mart, of all places. It’s in their laundry section.
It melts my heart to see the girls sharing a room!! There is enough of an age difference between them that they get along really well, and Avery has a lot of patience with her little sister. My girls – I just love them.
