This weekend we ventured to a family reunion for the day, and in addition to seeing lots (and lots) of extended family members, we also picked up a couple of cool family heirloom pieces.
Twin beds! Slept in by my mom and her brothers and sisters, as well as my sister and myself, and since then have been in the possession of my uncle who's sons slept in them. And pretty soon (but not too soon) my 16 month old will make her way into one of them.
I would post a pic for y'all to see, but they are currently still in pieces and wrapped up from the journey home. But they are solid mahogany post beds, somewhat similar to this:
Not only is it special to have a family antique like that, but it's not often you find children's furniture that's made of solid wood. I'm excited to get them put together (although they'll need a little work).
Little nugget is still in a crib so that means I have to rearrange her room to work in a twin bed until she's ready for the transition. The guest room has a really comfy queen bed in it, so there's no use in changing anything about that.
Here's her room now (also don't mind the few discrepancies--by no means is has the room been styled or professionally photographed; I just cleaned it enough to look decent in a quick photo):
And here's how the room is laid out in plan view:
And here are the options for incorporating the twin bed:
So what do you think?
Right now I'm leaning towards the first option, but ultimately it will depend on what it all feels like once I get it in there. It may end up being nothing like the way I've drawn them. Even still it's a good excuse to give that room some attention since all I've added since we moved in were the draperies and the photos for the gallery wall.
As usual, I'll keep you posted!
Until next time!
