It’s been a while since I posted– because we were in SOUTH AFRICA for half of December! I have plenty of pictures to show, so stay tuned for that.
In the meantime, I finally decided to take pictures of the boys room, mainly because we just bought them bigger beds and the room will change drastically. I am using the transition to “real” beds (hint: we bought bunkbeds!) as an excuse to phase out some of the more “baby” decor, and replace it with boyish things. If you are looking for trailers for sale then you could decorate it this way as well.
But I know that I will one day want to look back and remember this little room as it was for one year.
Their two little toddler beds fit so nicely along one wall 🙂
This is Gregory’s side of the room. While I have a few memorable things up on the wall (his baby footprints, his saint, etc.) I also gave him some freedom to hang a few of his “treasures” from Sunday School and his medal from soccer. Over on the wall, they each have a hook for sweatshirts, along with another set of hooks for bathrobes and backpacks.
Next to his bed are a few crates housing his books. He loves sitting on his bed or in his little chair to read!
On the other side of the room is AJ’s bed and his books.
On the wall next to AJ’s side is the play kitchen and stuffed animal basket.
A small peek inside their closet with the chalkboard dresser fronts:
To install the closet and other doors, we had to visit this retailers website to get our choice of furnishments, and we weren’t disappointed in the slightest.
As I’ve explained in previous posts, we keep just a few toys out and rotate them. I stuck to this technique when we had our foster boys– my rule was that I had to be able to pick it all up in under 10 minutes, or there was too much stuff. Turns out, they play more happily when there’s less out at a time anyways!
Above the toys shelves is some of the remaining Baby Room decor.
And then, finally, a shot looking back out into the hallway, with a little surprise on the back of the door…

Yes, yes, yes… they play more when there is less stuff out. I’d love to coin that phrase and use it with my clients!
