the big bad move

We have been hard at work switching our bedrooms. If you have no idea what I am talking about, click here for waaay too much back story on why we are switching our bedroom with Sawyer's. (You can also check out the best Craigslist nightstands ever.)

Sunday afternoon while Sawyer was napping, I decided that there is no time like the present and we were just going to dig in. So we did. We thought we would empty our tiny little bedroom into the living room, then when Sawyer got up from his nap, we'd move his stuff into our old room. Confused? How about I just share some pictures? First up, emptying out our room:

 It's amazing how big that room looks without anything in it.

Meanwhile, our living room was being turned into our bedroom's dumping ground:


Moving all of that stuff took most of the day, so we called it a night and slept in the living room. It was kind of fun, actually. Like a sleepover.

I'll share pictures of Sawyer's room and our freshly painted room later on this week or weekend. I am having so much fun arranging and organizing and designing our new space (I even have a pinboard to keep track of ideas and inspiration). Sawyer loves his new room, too, so I think this has been a great decision for us. All the work is going to be so worth it.



  1. woohoo, when you decide to do something, you go for it "balls to the wall" (sorry but I love this expression for some reason!)

    I love your bravery in going for it.

    I decided to move the kids into the bigger 2nd bedroom (which is currently my study/ guest bed and CHOCK full of books) but let's see if we actually get it done in 2012 LOL

  2. I can't wait to see the end result! Happy arranging ;)
