No, we’re not adding a music room. Musical rooms…like musical chairs. I thought I’d share with you plans for the big room move-around, coming up in May.
The great room move-around is the big idea to give my daughter a bigger room. Right now she has the smallest bedroom, but she actually likes playing in her room. Even with this rearrangement of the furniture:
She still makes a huge mess and does not have a lot of space in which to play.
Our current master bedroom is really a mirror (well, sideways mirror) image of my son’s room.
So, the idea is to move my daughter into what is now the master, move the master bedroom to the “real” master bedroom downstairs, which is now the guest room:
And move the guest room to the smallest bedroom/my daughter’s current room.
I always have to have a plan, so I’ve written it all out in my handy-dandy trusty-dusty spiral notebook. (One day I will write a post about how I am never without a spiral notebook, but that’s another topic for another day.) There’s just a lot to do, so I feel better if I write it all down and can cross things off the list.
Here’s the list, so far:
Master to Current Guest Room
Do something with the bathroom (still up in the air; looking into making this big bathroom into a powder room and master suite bath – because it’s the only bathroom on our first floor);
add crown molding to room
touch up wall paint; stencil accent wall
organize closet: add second clothes bar; adjust shelves
move furniture downstairs
Guest Room to M’s Current Room
paint over the big green stripe (!! Can you say “primer,” anyone?)
paint the walls a normal color
window coverings/curtains hung
bed moved upstairs from downstairs
dresser and chest from D’s room to this room
move suitcases to one closet and out of D’s closet
dresser in current guest room to D’s room
M’s Room to Current Master
paint walls (green stripe again?)
need two more window shades
move all her furniture in here
turn second closet into play fort/reading nook
paint bathroom, including trim
So, that’s the plan. I am starting to think about a timeline for when to start all this mayhem; I have to get my final papers graded first and then it’s full steam ahead.
I’ll update you on the plans for the master bath/powder room in a post coming up soon.
