Keeping Busy

Trying to keep busy in the midst of all Tom's surgery issues hasn't been easy. One way I kept busy was to paint and move the girls rooms around. They were sharing a room with the bunk beds and the other room was a playroom. We decided to give them their own room, since they really were not keeping the playroom cleaned, Mom was. One room was painted a light pink with dark pink sponge paints and the other room was the opposite. Hannah detested a pink room, so she choose her color - Cornflower blue. Took 2 coats of primer to cover the pink and 2 coats of blue to cover the primer.
Here are their finished rooms. Sami's is the bigger room, so it made more sense for her to keep the bunk bed in there and Hannah has Tom's old headboard from when he was growing up on the twin bed. Sami now has a little play place underneath her bed where her doll house is stored and Hannah gets privacy to do her homework at the desk (which is the last thing my Grandmother gave me before she passed away over 25 years ago). Right there between the bed and the wall, she has pillowed piled and if you can't find her, she's there reading a book or playing her DS. Nighttime is definately easier because Samantha's not climbing the ladder pulling Hannah's hair and singing keeping her awake. My sister and I each had our own room with bunk beds that stacked on top of each other. So we would go months with our own rooms and then decide to share and move everything around. Yes, we fought like cats and dogs, but we really enjoyed each other's company, I hope the same for my girls.
