The Boys’ Shared Room

When we moved Isaac out of our bedroom, he had to go somewhere.  And since his room’s not done, the only place for him was Adam’s room.

Adam’s room was already pretty crammed full of furniture, but we squeezed everything more tightly, and made room for the crib.

The famous bookshelf dresser had to move to the east wall, in front of the window.

Obviously, if Adam had a twin bed, instead of a full bed, we’d have a bit more room.  But we already had the full bed, and it comes in handy for snuggling and nursing Isaac in the middle of the night.  When Isaac was younger and spent most of the night in bed with me, Bart and Adam slept in here so that they weren’t woken up by the baby.

This shows just how tightly things fit.  I took this picture standing in the doorway, and yes, you have to squeeze between the crib and bed to enter the room.

“You been farming long?” had been on the crib wall, but I put it in the closet so that Isaac didn’t pull it down.  After taking the pictures of the room, I decided to relocate it over here.

Isaac’s (unfinished) room may become a play room when it gets done, and then the boys would still share this room.  But then the crib would go in this corner where the shelves and chair are right now and the shelves would move to the other room.  I’ve already warned Bart that when the bedroom is finished, it may take several months and many furniture arrangements/combinations between the two rooms before we figure out what will work best for our family.  For now, we’re making do (and making it cute) the best we can!
