You may have read my many tips when it comes to making room for baby. One of them was creating the perfect shared sibling space. And well, I’ve done just that in my own home. Over the past few months, the cupcakeMAG Team and I worked with some amazing companies to turn a drab space into a fab space for 2 of my girls, because we are outgrowing our house and have to make room for baby until we finish our addition.
Now, the decision for the closet should we create a nook for a crib for our youngest now, or make it a reading nook? The room turned out so bright and cheerful, I want to sleep in it. Not to mention, it’s currently one of the May Room Finalists over on Project Nursery!
And so now I have to decide if I want to put 3 girls in one room as we make room for a boy, as our oldest is lucky enough to have her own space. Until the addition is completed, we are 1 room short, as we only have 4 bedrooms with 5 Littles.
Scroll through to see what I was busy doing all week — making the perfect shared place as we make room for another Little!
