Oh.My.Gosh.  I can not believe that my twins, my babies, the “little’s” have turned five years old and will be starting kindergarten in the Fall.  I just can NOT believe it!  Where has the time gone?

Instead of being weepy about it, I got the harebrained idea of celebrating this milestone with a bed room makeover.  I’m just cool like that!

Or crazy.

The jury is still out…

Anyhow, we moved into this house three and a half years ago.  Before we lived here, my mom and dad did.  Many, many years ago, I helped my mom paint the grand kids’ room with teddy bears and it was really cute.  My mom had lots of cute Bernstein Bear decorations and it was a great room for visiting grand kids.  Unfortunately, it did not take long for my monsters boys to start ripping the cute baby bear wall paper trim off the walls.  And now, three years later, it looks pretty bad.

Also, when we first moved in, the twins were still sleeping in toddler beds.  They quickly outgrew those tiny beds and I found myself desperately searching for beds on Craigslist.  I found a decent set of “triple bunks” for only $100!  It was a DEAL!  But as you can imagine, a set of three beds for only $100 came with a few issues.  These past three years we have made the beds work even with missing screws and questionable base boards.

Here is a peek at what I’m working with…I really should have thought to make the beds before taking the pictures….

The beds are missing screws, the base boards are broken on two of them and Nate’s is held together with a few pieces of scrap wood.  It is to the point that I actually worry about the safety of the beds and I know we desperately need new ones.

My babies need a new room!

Lucky for me, Hayneedle and My Wonderful Walls have come to my rescue!

Over the next month, I will be painting and stenciling my little heart out making room for some new beautiful beds.  I can’t wait to share all the fun with you!    In addition, if you happen to be a business owner who might have some wicked cute “outer space” themed items that you want featured here, please let me know!  I’m still scouring the web for fun accent pieces and bedding to complete the room.  Either way…it is going to be a MAJOR improvement!  I might even have a giveaway or two.  So stick around and check back because I will be posting progress updates throughout the month of June!

Let the painting begin!
