I nailed down furniture placement for the girls' bedroom. Reese's crib doesn't convert into a toddler bed, something I was sure I wouldn't want when we were buying cribs. Now that we are facing the crib-to-bed transition I kind of wish it did, just so they were still in "their beds". I feel like it would make the transition easier. Anyhow, Ryan will be transitioning to a daybed which we already have and Reese will be transitioning to a toddler bed. Joe is building her a toddler platform bed so that I can do an upholstered headboard for her.
Keeping Reese in a toddler bed allows me to create a nice play space in the girls' bedroom. This is the floor plan I came up with after moving stuff around in their room last week. I was surprised at how much space two twin beds take up in that room. I have a plan for when they are big, big girls. But I'll cross that bridge when we get there.
The girls' chair also came in -- I ordered it on Overstock and the reviews warned that the chair was small and it is petite. If it was for any other room in our house I would have cried over the cost to ship it back for sure. But for a little girls room it is *perfect*.
I'm struggling to find a dresser/bookcase combo for their room. I thought that would be the easiest thing to find. I have 42" of wall space to work with, which makes it harder as most dressers with hutches are closer to 60". It doesn't help that I refuse to spend $1000+ on a piece of furniture for a child's room.
