As discussed when chatting about the girls’ bedroom/nursery plans, we have assigned these rooms as boy and girl titles very loosely. We do not know our coming baby’s gender (and of course birth order for future babies).
(This photo is the former resident’s furniture. Our crib is in here now.)
Similarly, our to-do list is pretty short and vague. Of the whole house’s interior and exterior, the children’s rooms are our least priority while we are waiting and seeing what life with multiple babies is like.
- Lay wood floors
- Replace light fixture
- Paint walls (an army green-ish, I think)
- Refurbish dresser and changing table (previous owner left for us)
- Rug, accessories, artwork
If and when this space is made full-on boy, I would like for a little bit of an industrial meets camping feel with things like a teepee to play in and vintage science posters. Please understand I am generally adverse to rooms having “themes,” so I hope to not execute in a too cliche way.
In theory, I would love for our babies to be sleeping in the same room as soon as No. 2 sleeps through the night. (Is that what people do? I do not know; I just make up goals and enforce them on myself.) Whether boy or girl, I want the shared space to work.
