I assumed as soon as we found out Griffin was a boy that he & Grayson would at some point be sharing a bedroom. I expected that they would be the best of friends (and they are) and that it would be fun for them while they were young. So, naturally, when we found out we were expecting little Miss C, our plan was to move Grayson and Griffin in together so that we could have a nursery and a guest room. I really wasn't all that worried about it. Grayson has always transitioned so easily & I thought Griff would love it. Well, let me just say, the transition was not nearly as easy as we had hoped. In fact, after nearly 2 months of transitioning Griffin is just now getting settled! But? They are actually sleeping in the same room AND Griffin has been sleeping through the night. Hallelujah!
Even though the transition has been hard & we were exhausted (see also: I needed an IV of coffee
sometimes all the time), they love being in the same room. They really are best friends and have so much fun together. I love hearing them on the monitor as they wake up or as I get ready in the mornings. Those boys can make each other laugh SO hard! They won't be in the same room forever, but I'm glad they can share right now. It's still fun for them!
Now, onto the fun part. Pictures of the room! I kept the same "theme" that was in Grayson's room. He had a lot of navy blue, red, & trucks. I don't do character stuff (I'm sure I will eat my words on this eventually) but I can handle some trucks!
The beds are my favorite! We had thought about bunk beds with stairs but I am not ready to trust Griffin alone with those! He's a safety hazard--ha! Ben's dad made these awesome twin beds for the boys and they turned out just how I had envisioned them. I wanted a more rustic look & they look amazing! Griffin's bed is the one with about a gazillion stuffed animals. I made the same "G" canvas over his bed as Grayson had in his old room. I just switched out the colors...easy wall art!
Griff's side & a better look at the bed. Aren't they perfect?!
This is Grayson's side of the bedroom.
Both the bookshelf & this dresser are from a local furniture store in Franklin called Rooster Tails. I highly recommend them!
I love this bedroom & the fact that they are now actually both sleeping in it! Let's hope that trend continues!!
