Room for two

Well… we’ve done it. For better or for worse.

I’m not talking marriage – that was a while ago.

I’m talking two small children sharing a bedroom. At the moment it is definitely “for worse” but I still have hopes we will get to “for better”. We are tired and cranky – don’t come and visit this week…

On Friday afternoon while some men were lurking under the floorboards, I was yet again rearranging the furniture! This is progress:

For anyone who also has a rearranging furniture thing, and hates waiting for help to arrive – here’s how you do it all by yourself… without scratching furniture, floors or walls!

1. Take one old blanket
2. Lay it on the floor next to furniture destined for a new location
3. Lift one side of furniture item while sliding blanket under (feet are good for this)
4. Repeat with the other side
5. Push, pull, shove furniture to new location
6. Remove blanket one side at a time (again, use your feet)

Here’s Miss E’s new corner.0305_6455

And here’s Master W’s big boy corner. 0305_6456

And a few more corners and details… just because I love this room!

In sleep mode: 0305_6465

And wake mode: 0305_6467

Now if only it was that simple… switch modes for blissful peace and quiet and well rested children (and mama’s and dada’s).

If you have any tips for little ones sharing a bedroom they’ll be welcomed with open arms!
