One Room Challenge: Reveal Day
We made it to the finish line. Even though, it was just a walk-in closet, I still managed to get all stressy and obsessive. BUT – it’s so good to have the kick in the pants needed to get an entire project finished. And this time, unlike the last two times (seen here and here), I get to live with it!!
As a reminder, I redid my daughter’s walk in closet, which we now call The Clubhouse…
We really do have so much fun in there.
Gracie usually walks straight for her rocking elephant and rides away…
Josie will pull a princess dress out of one of her dress up bags that I had embroidered with the words “Tomfoolery” and “Mischief” – that’s one of my favorite little elements.
And I usually head for the books on the shelf and plop down on the sheepskin rug to read to the girls….
The girls will often stare out the window together, which they love. I will often stare at the Sister Parish curtains with black pom pom trim and thank my lucky stars that I have a mom and helping friend that know what to do in front of a sewing machine.
Sometimes this closet does mean the business of getting dressed, but into frilly dresses, so it’s not the most serious business in town.
Rarely, I put clothes away but I’m much better at posing while fake putting clothes away than actually putting them away. I’m much much better at faking it.
This closet door is never shut now. If, say, my husband shuts it, I’ll follow right behind him and open it right back up.
I have been known to say “Goodnight closet” moments before tucking my daughter into bed and just last night Josie said goodnight to it.
For the record, her future husband is screwed. He can thank me when Josie is straightfaced talking about the necessity to wallpaper her closet – to which he shall respond, “you can wish upon all the stars in the land, but we’re not papering our closet” and then she’ll think of this star light…
But my girls won’t remember what their closet used to be like because they are 2 and 1. Perhaps you don’t remember what it looked like either…here is the before.
With that, we’re off to stare out the window to spy on our neighbor’s dog because apparently we have a thing about dogs.
Grace is especially fond of dogs…
While we’re looking out the window, I highly recommend going to see everyone’s hard work and big reveal on the One Room Challenge at Linda’s blog Calling It Home.
Thanks so much for looking!!
