Room Tour-Landry

About two months ago, we redid Landry's room.  At the time she was in a twin bed and was asking for a desk in her room.  We live in a fairly small house and the bedrooms for Landry and Hayden do not have ample room in them.  So, I went to one of my favorite stores, Ikea.  I love the selection of kids furniture they have.  I could spend all day in that place.  I knew I was looking for a bed on top of a desk, and they had the perfect set-up.  Plus, it had a little closet on the side.

So, welcome to Landry's new room.  She asked if she could take her picture in front of her door.  You will see a sign that says "No boys allowed".  Poor Hayden. 

When you first walk in you will notice her bookshelf with her lamp.

On the bookshelf are four of my favorite pieces in her room.  Her bible she got for Christmas, her Jesus calling book, her frame with the verse I prayed over her while I was pregnant with her and her butterfly.  Butterflies are a thing for the girls in my family.  My Maw-Maw died 13 years ago and every time we see a butterfly we feel her presence.  So, I thought it only fitting to have a butterfly in Landry's room.

Her dresser.  This dresser matched her old bed, but it works well with the new bed too.  I had those letters hanging in her nursery and of course, a TV.  We got her the TV last year for her birthday.  I was hesitant at first, but she knows she only gets so much time at night and she has to earn it.

She asked to have pictures of her family in her room so I made this cork board and put some of our favorite candids up there.  And that basket below with the stuffed animals?  Well, we call that her class :)

Her desk.  The whole reason for getting this bed was for this desk.  Landry loves to draw and write and play school and has been begging for her own desk.  I love that fact that it doesn't take up space either.  That's been really nice.  I put a few cute accessories on their as well. 

The bed/desk also came with some side shelves.  These are just random things I decorated it with.

And the closet.  Probably my favorite feature.  I hang her clothes in here on Sunday for the week and then we don't have to worry about what she's going to wear each morning. 

So, that's Landry's new updated room.  She loves it.  She would spend all day and night in there if I would let her. 

Also today, I would like to say Happy Birthday to my wonderful sister in law, Steph.  Stephanie is one of the best aunts my kids could of asked for.  She would drop anything in a heartbeat to do something for them and never hesitates when I ask her to come over and watch them.  She talks to Landry on the phone pretty much every day and is always interested in what they are doing.  She is so sweet and always takes the time to listen to me about anything!  We love you Steph!
