"new" rooms for the kids

I decided to separate the kids. Mostly because I was itching for change, but also a little bit because some nights they talk to each other forever, and I really need them to get sleep since Peyton has so many activities in the morning. 

Noah stayed in the small room, and Peyton moved to the playroom. 

The dresser is now where Peyton's bed used to be.

 His crib stayed in the same place, but we removed the front rail. I think we're going to get him a twin bed for Christmas. 

 This is the most frustrating storage unit. It all just snaps together pretty easily, but that also means that it unsnaps pretty easily too. I'm thinking about moving it into his closet because instead of taking a nap today he decided to play with everything. I would go in and check on him, and he would run to his bed and say,"lay down". ha. I am not ready for him to give up his naps yet!

We moved Peyton's kitchen into Noah's room because there wasn't any space in her room. Noah plays with it more than she does anyway.

I had a really hard time with Peyton's room because of the bookcase. It's anchored to the wall, so there was no moving it.

There's a bunch of random things up there right now.
 I took off the orange and pink comforter and put it in her closet. She used to have this quilt at the end of her bed, I was ready for change so on it went. My grandma knitted the blanket at the end of her bed.

Ghetto bulletin board that falls down all of the time, and her keyboard that I really wish she would let Cory teach her how to play. She'd rather just dance to the songs in the song bank. 

I just threw what we already had in their rooms, and plan on slowly decorating them.  I've been a pinning fool getting ideas for their rooms. I know I definitely want to go with something nautical for Noah. I'm just not sure if I want to do navy or a lighter blue, orange or red or grey. I've been on the hunt for rugby bedding, but everything I've seen online is either super expensive or discontinued. I love the look of these room's for Noah, and have a bunch of nautical accessories that I love, and have pinned. 

I love these old crates on casters.  

I'm not sure which direction I'm going to go in for Peyton's room. I was thinking about getting her a desk or vanity for Christmas, but I'm not sure where I would put it. I also want to get her a bed frame. 

I love this, and am thinking about doing something similar.

I know I want to replace the bulletin board with this. I just need to go to the thrift store, and find a big frame.

Peyton has a billion stuffed animals and I know she would love this...
I'm pretty sure Cory could easily make it. I'd probably paint it to add a little more color in her room since I don't want to paint. 

So that's what's been going on the last couple of days. boom goes the dynamite.
