Ok, ladies. I need some opinions here please.
We are quite blessed in that we have a 4 bedroom home and only 1 child. My niece who lives with us is getting married and moving out in Nov. So that will free up the other room that is already completely painted, floored, and ready to be occupied. Bear with me, this may be kinda a long explanation, but I promise I'll get there.
1 bedroom is not usable at this point as it is still bare concrete. Its the last room in the house to be tiled. Not to mention it also has to be painted, etc. We don't have the time to do it. Too many other things on our plate. We are building Braxton a twin size loft bed with storage stairs to go in his room. This is replacing the toddler bed he still sleeps in, but barely fits in. The room he is currently in would barely fit his bare necessity stuff plus a twin bed, much less a loft one with stairs. It would be too long for any of the walls as all of his walls have either a doorway or a door that opens onto that wall. Its terrible placement of doors. And, on top of that, his room is the smallest we have. So we have decided to give him my nieces room which is larger, longer, and much better suited to actual living, especially for the bed we're building him. We are giving Aarilyn his room. It works perfectly as a nursery, as that was his nursery. Here's the problem. That room is blue. I mean COMPLETELY blue. Walls, ceiling, everything. It does have clouds painted on the ceiling to make it look like sky. And DH refuses to paint. (which to be fair I totally get. We don't have enough time to paint it, nor enough money to hire it done. Same reason the other room isn't getting done right now.) So, repainting is out of the question. I am a frilly girl person. Think ruffles, lace, frilly. I kinda have an idea of what I want to do in there, but would like to get some input of any ideas ya'll might have to make a blue room a frilly, fun, girly nursery room. We are for sure incorporating an owl, birdie theme in the frilly stuff.
I'll come back and post later what I'm thinking about now. Have to go put a kid to work really quick.
Ideas anyone? I welcome Lurker's thoughts too! No guarantee to use the ideas, but at least it will get my cogs turning even if I don't use it.
