The Girlz Bedroom Makeovers

The girlz decided after six years of sharing the same room that they wanted their own bedrooms. We only have three bedrooms - one is the master, of course, one was the girl's room and the other we had turned into their "dance" room. So... we had to say goodbye to the dance room. It was a hard thing to do - especially for me because I'm so sentimental. I just remember all the fun times they had in their dance room with their friends and performing dances for Steve and me on the dance stage.

 

We gave the dance stage to friends so that helped the girls (and me) not be so sad. Now they can go to their friend's house and see it! Plus, it brought us joy that another family could enjoy it like we did. These are pics of the night they came over to get it and the girlz performed their last dances on the stage.





Then the destruction began. This is when I had to leave the room :-(


The girl's bedroom has seen a lot of changes over the years. Here's pics from when it was a nursery...


Then we changed it to their "big girl bedroom"...


So we asked the girlz if they wanted to be surprised or if they wanted to be part of the makeover and they asked to be surprised. Steve and I love to surprise them with makeovers - it's just kind of fun for us. We love to see how excited they get when they see the change for the first time. Here's some pics from when we surprised them with a makeover of our gameroom/homeschool room last year.

It took several weeks of hard work and LOTS of coats of paint but we finally finished the rooms yesterday, with the exception of adding things to the shelves and hanging a few pictures. Here they are so excited to go see their new rooms...


Abby was first to see her room...



Then it was Mackenzie's turn...



We now have two very happy and giggly girlz who are busy as I write this decorating their rooms and making them their own :-)
