so close I can taste it

OK, so we are pretty much done with the kids' rooms. It was all painted and moved around by Friday, but we're still waiting on one of those beds. Why it takes so much longer for one of them when they were both ordered at the same time, I just don't understand.

So, here's the before (again) of what was the boys' room...And part of the after. Here's Haley's new loft bed.
We really like them a lot. I can't wait for Ashley's to come in. It's supposed to be in by today, but we haven't received an email yet saying to come pick it up.
Daredevil red on her walls. I like it.
We need to put some shelves up on that wall there, at the end of her bed. But, it's going to have to wait till we have a little more $$$$.
We're also hoping to get them both their own little homework desk to go under as well. Again, more funding needed. :)Haley's is the brown dresser, the white one--Ashley's will of course go under her loft bed when it arrives. Over in this space here.....
What do you think of her Dragonfruit pink?
I like it. There's about half a can left, just enough probably for my laundry room. Hmmmmm.....

And here is the before of the boys' new room.
It was Ashley's and Haley's.....

And, voila!!!!
The after shots.

We left the walls beige, which was the plan. I was thinking about doing big red dots with the remainder of Haley's red paint, but decided against it.
We found these cute car decals at Target instead.
I like them, and so do the boys.

A huge improvement I think.
And praise the Lord! The kitchen table and the kitchen island are finally cleared off again.
Just a small miracle there.

I LOVE the pink!!
The rooms really do look great! Loft beds are sooo cool - you get twice the space (or it seems that way).

Good job!!

It looks so great Mikki! And I love the extra floor space you gain with the beds. I would totally use the pink in your laundry room. I totally think it's a room that needs to be decorated and make you feel happy to walk into. Show pics when you do it!
