Our Farmhouse Renovation Reveal Part 4 – The Twin’s Rooms and Bathroom
Annnnd I’m back with Part 4 of our Farmhouse Renovation Reveal. Don’t worry, there are only 5 parts, so if you’re totally bored, it’s almost over! And incase you’re just now getting in on all of the action, you can catch up by reading Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3!
Ok, on to part 4 – the twin’s rooms!
Although the twins shared a nursery at our previous home, we thought the move into our new home would be a great time to transition them into their own rooms. When we first moved in, we kept them in their cribs and started gathering ideas for what we eventually wanted (ok, what I eventually wanted), but knew we wouldn’t go full force until it was time to take them out of their cribs and put them in big boy/ big girl beds, which we did right when the remodel started.
Let’s start with Stella’s room… Here is a photo of the room when the house was on the market:
I wanted to keep her room girly without drenching the entire space in pink. I also wanted to keep it cohesive with the overall feel of the rest of the home…casual and cottage-esque. So I opted for soft floral drapes with a pom pom trim, a pin striped dust ruffle, a monogrammed pillow, and of course, a chandelier!
We had the walls shiplapped as we did in the majority of the downstairs of the house. And because she kept asking for pink, I had the ceiling painted in a light shade of blush.
Because her room is so small (10’x10′), we opted for a full-sized bed and pushed it back into the furthest corner of the room. The nightstand was a “one of a kind” from Wisteria…I love the whitewashed finish.
I purchased the banner over her bed from Etsy and draped it just below the little framed romper that she wore when she came home from the hospital.
I purchased these adorable shabby chic shelves at RH Baby & Child. They were just what I needed to display some fun momentos such as her framed foot prints, my first pair of ballet slippers and the “3 Wishes” necklace that my brother gifted me when my husband and I were going through IVF.
I’m happy with the way Stella’s room turned out…I think it’s a good reflection of her sweet personality.
Speaking of personality….let’s move on to Beckham’s room.
In almost all of my sonograms with the twins, my nurses would always say, “wow, baby ‘A’ is extremely active…” It is no joke when I say that this child is non-stop. Again, I wanted a space that reflected his personality, so I opted to accent his room in red (which oddly enough is now his favorite color).
Here is Beckham’s room just before we moved into the house (sorry, can’t see much of the room, but you get the idea)…
I wanted to incorporate the shiplapped walls again, but with a different, more masculine feel…so I had it stained instead of painted and I love the way it turned out!
We (especially my husband) wanted the room to have a rustic feel, so we installed an antler chandelier and incorporated a cow hide rug to break up the dark stained wood floors.
My favorite part of this room is likely the headboard which we had custom-made with Beckham’s monogram in red, of course. Love!
The night stands are from RH and the plaid pillows were holiday pillows from Pottery Barn.
Ok, on to the twin’s bathroom…
At this point the twins are sharing a bathroom. That may change in the future, but it will ultimately depend on how long we live here. Anyways, because it is shared, we needed to keep in gender neutral and cohesive with both of their bedrooms.
Here is the bathroom when the house was on the market…
Here is the bathroom now!
I hated the original built-ins. They were grimy and dingy and I couldn’t have replaced them fast enough. We had a custom built-in made which consists of 6 drawers and a large cabinet up top.
Not only did we replace the pedestal sink with a custom vanity, we replaced the light fixture with a school house light and added blue painted shiplapped walls. We also added a custom floor to ceiling double shower curtain in a cute neutral buffalo check pattern, which I had been dying to use!
And the horse print was a HomeGoods find…the overall feel of this print was perfect for the space! We also removed towel bars and replaced them with towel hooks…much easier for the kids to operate.
I hope you’re enjoying the renovation updates! Like I said, there’s only one more part to this series of posts and it will feature our new master suite. Hoping to have it up on the blog early next week, so stay tuned!
