Coming Home | Kids Room

I came to the realization that I really haven’t shared much of the kids room.  All three littles share this space. When we first bought the house, there was some kickback (primarily from the oldest, and only boy) about having to share. Our options were limited and I decided that they would have to learn to be okay with it. Well…they have. In fact, Peyton said to me not long ago, that he really loves our house. It caught me off-guard and I told him that it surprised me, given how upset he was about cohabitating with his two sisters. He said to me “You know…it’s not so bad. I kind of like it.”  SUCCESS!!!

We tried to make the space a pretty neutral ground for the sibs.  These amazing beds were found second-hand by a great friend. She saw the lines on them and knew immediately that I would fall in love. She was right.  They were pretty banged up, but nothing that some white paint couldn’t fix.

The kids love to read, so there are books everywhere. I’m slowly working on making “homes” for them all. Step one was painting crates to use as a night stand/book shelf.  It does the job and was inexpensive.

I still have this mess in the corner to contend with. I wanted a cute mid-century chair and book shelves on the wall, but right now, it’s become a toy corner.

There is still more work to be done in the space, but it’s mainly small details. For the time being, it works and the kids are happy, so I’m happy. Keep it simple, right?!

About Kelly Gorney

I am a custom photographer located in Northwestern Pennsylvania, focusing on children, families and seniors. While I am still considered a portrait photographer, I like to lean toward a more “lifestyle” approach, capturing people as they are on a day-to-day basis, rather than a very “posed” look. I love what I do and hope it reflects in my work.

  2. Great space! You have such nice natural lighting coming in the room. I love bunkbeds. I shared a room with my older brother when we were young and we had so many fun memories with our bunkbeds building forts.
