Trading Spaces

Project "BIG BOY" is finally complete.


The cribs are gone & the bunk beds have arrived.

(Anyone who has met the Twinkies realizes the wisdom in keeping both bunks floorbound for now...)


The entire process took a long time because the boys needed the big bedroom, formerly occupied by Princess Em.

Thus a whole lotta furniture hefting, closet cleaning, garbage dumping and picture hanging.

Emmie was a good sport about moving into a smaller room.


The deal was sweetened by all-new, custom-made bedding & window treatments.

Designed and stitched with love by Nana!

Em adores her new room and takes great pride in making her beautiful bed every morning.



Poor Jake got nothin'!

But he cleaned his room...so I'm taking his picture because a clean room is a terrible thing to waste.

Ahhh, so cute! I love those beds.

Laurie said...

Cute bedding! And a clean room indeed should be documented.

SO Cute! Love those bunk beds. We have bunk beds but they are stacked. Needless to say that my youngest learned how to climb a ladder before he was one year old. We should have been smart like you guys.

What is better than a grandma who sews? I'm getting ready to post my sweet grandma sewing treasures.

FUN! I love re-decorating.. Luckily I get to do it every year or two... when we move... again...

I LOVE a clean room and all those rooms look absolutely darling, clean, sweet, and lovely! Good job mom (and Nana!)

Jenibelle said...

Em's bedding is adorable!! Love it all! Your house is an inspiration, is everything you do spectacular? Could you show just a tiny little bit of imperfection? I'm not worthy.

Lauren said...

Everything looks fabulous!

Great job to Em for not being upset to move to a smaller room. I love her new bedding!

And, will you tell Jake that I said his room looks SUPER!?

Cathy said...

Wonderful! Great job to everyone! Nothing like feeling really accomplished over successful endeavors! Loved all the rooms, work and effort!

Christie said...

Yay for you! I love the new rooms. Your house is always so adorable. Come here and help me!

Ashlee said...

Such cute quilts! Are they staying in their big boy beds like good little children? My daughter refuses to stay in hers. It drives me crazy!

Robin said...

It looks like Jake's walls are BLACK! How cool is that!?!

Your blog is fun to read and I loved your interview with Jenibelle.

Jessica said...

Given that I loathe decorating (but love the results) I think that is a huge accomplishment. Where did you get their beds? They're red, right? I need one to match the one we had custom made in Utah.

Kenny and Linsey said...

Can Nana come live with me and make custom bedding too...or maybe just teach me how? So cute, cute, cute!

Bridget said...

What cute rooms! I love the red beds.

Annemarie said...

Cute, cute, cute! A clean boy bedroom is ALWAYS a kodak moment!

Denae (a.k.a. D-dawg) said...

DARLING! Love it all.

Marilyn said...

I love the material for your daughter's bed-so cute! I was looking at a Pottery Barn duvet cover (and drooling over it) that looks similar

TravelinOma said...

Lucky kids! These rooms are all so cute. Plus the kids add a definite darling factor.

andrea said...

gabi, it's time to train your daughter. when you break out the camera, she needs to quickly change into something that coordinates with the scenery. orange shirt on pink bed... no. all wrong. it doesn't showcase nana's work properly!

cami said...

So cute - all the rooms look great. You have a talent for decorating! And yes, Nana is the best! Love you, Mom! :)

Jill said...

Fun! I love switching things up. Makes life exciting :)

diane said...

I like the bows on the princesses window treatments. Darling rooms.

Rochelleht said...

Crack me up! LOVE the rooms. So cute. Our bunk beds are separated into two different rooms.

marta said...

darling. i just love it. nicely done, gab. and emmie doesn't realize how lucky she is! she doesn't ever have to share a room with a little sis who rolls. super cute. way to go, nana!

Wendy said...

Cute, Cute rooms! It feels so good to know that your kids have clean rooms, even if it only lasts a day or less.
I love your weekly interviews. They are always honest an inspiring.

Marci said...

Way to pull off such an amazing decorating project! You have such a great sense of style. I love how it all turned out.

And yes, a clean room is a terrible thing to waste. Way to go, Jake!!

Nimmy said...

I love all those kiddie rooms. I'm so proud that you have finally put Luke and Sam in big kid beds. Now they can make their own breakfast (as usual) without having to ask for help to get out of bed first!

crystal said...

Your kids' rooms look like a POTTERY BARN MAGAZINE!!! So unfair. My kids' rooms look like footage of Hurricane Katrina.

grassyhill said...

All 3 rooms look very nice... You did such a good job on putting them together.

Dancin Queen said...

Everything looks awesome! Excellent work!

I don't think my kids would even recognize their rooms if they were clean.
