Girls' Bedroom Tour

The girls room was somewhat easy to decorate because I already had the bedding that I loved. However, the shape of the room is odd...very long and narrow. Meghan helped me pick out a rug from The Carpet Mill, curtains & the swing from Ikea and from there I was inspired on my own. I re-painted Ellie's white dresser and stuck that in the closet. I moved Saedi's dresser into the boys' room & replaced hers with the cubby unit from Target. The cubby is great because she can maneuver the baskets easier and clothes stay more organized. Saedi picked the pink baskets, which happily go with the pink paint that the girls chose.

The map on the wall is my favorite part of the decor. I found the old map at Paradise Point Marketplace on the way home from the Barren River Lake State Park in Kentucky when we vacationed with The Moons. Nat and I were hot, swollen and a month away from birthing our boys. I bought this map and she bought a similar one as well, so there's a it of sentiment that goes along with it. And, it just so happens that we're working on memorizing the States and Capitals with the girls so it's PERFECT!
