I've been thinking about moving the boys into a shared bedroom for quite sometime now. Lately, Griffin would just assume to be in Parker's room all the time....including at night, when it is time for bed. And to be completely honest, I could really put Griffin's room to great use as an office/craft room for me & my husband.
Right now, my craft stuff is all spread out in different areas of our home. I would LOVE to have everything in one place, where things could be organized & tidy. I would also love to have a space where I sit & blog without interruptions. My husband also occasionally works from home & would love to have a space where he could do the same.
When I first starting thinking about making this transition, I knew that it would be a project I would want to tackle during the summer months. I'd like for the boys to get used to sleeping in a room together before school starts back up in the fall and more than likely, it will probably be a project that will take me most of the summer to complete anyway. I mean let's be honest.....I haven't even finished my master bedroom yet & I've been working on it for several months now! I'm sure most of you have probably forgotten about that room all together by now.....perhaps I need to do a post to bring you all up to date on the master?!
Until then, here are some shared bedroom ideas for boys that are inspiring me.....
Things I love about each of these spaces:
1. Two Twin Beds- I don't know what it is about two little beds sitting side by side, but it makes my heart happy! I can't wait to see my boys' beds sitting side by side! (Yes, I am a total weirdo!) My mom was out of town doing some shopping yesterday & actually found two matching headboards for me to use in the boys' room at Goodwill! They are super cute! I'll be sharing them in a separate post soon!
2. Shared Nightstand- I would love to find a small dresser like you see in these photos above for the boys to use as a nightstand. I love how the dresser separates the two spaces & also brings color, personality, & functionality to the space. I especially love the green dresser you see in the last photo. The paint detail is so cute!
3. Photos/Monograms- Most of the spaces you see here have some way of identifying one space from the other. I love the idea of using monograms and/or photos of the kids to do that. I really love the idea of the monogram pillows that you see on the beds in the first photo that I shared.
What do you think about these inspiration photos?! Which room is your favorite?
Do any of your children share a room? What tips do you have for creating a shared space?
