August Featured Space: Bedroom

Where has this year gone?  It's already August, which means in less than a month the summer will be over and the little ones will be heading back to school.  WOW!

With a new month, I get to switch gears again and focus on a new space around the house - the bedroom!

A lot can happen in a bedroom, from getting ready for work and school to studying to relaxing with a good book to that little thing they call sleep.  It's definitely one of those multifunctional spaces!  And with bedrooms typically comes closets as well, which I will touch on also!

We currently are fortunate enough to sport a home with 4 bedrooms, one is used as a master bedroom, one as a shared bedroom for our two oldest boys, one as a bedroom for our youngest {which has been his since it was his nursery} and the last one is for our guests.

So what do I have up my sleeves for this month?  Well, first off, all year long I have been stashing away some goodies to give our guest bedroom a little bit of a face lift!

Along with that face lift, will also come the need to make the space more friendly and organized for our visitors! 

And although I have already touched on all the ways that I keep my kiddo's lives organized, I have big plans for their personal spaces as well!

Our little ones are going to do some movin!  And I don't mean by shakin' that booty, but by literally moving their bedroom spaces around!

It's time for our oldest, who just turned 9, to have his own personal space.  Oh if I would have been able to capture his reaction when I let him know, it was totally priceless!

So what once was this.....

.... will be no more...

The big bunk bed is getting moved to our youngest one's room, so the younger two can now share!

This means looking at both spaces in a whole new perspective.  And looking at their storage situation in a new perspective as well!  From my oldest needing a new headboard and study zone to the little ones needing a space that fits their fun personalities, this is gonna be a blast!

Oh, and have I mentioned, I have to rummage through my home and re-purpose and use things that I already own... yep, my husband gave me zero budget for all this moving around stuff.  EEK!  Knowing me, that won't happen, but what I will do is keep any spending at an uber minimum this time around, and get crazy creative when it comes to finding new uses for things I already have.

I already started brainstorming the new study space for P1.  It has a little to do with a closet and these accessories I have drummed up from around our dwelling:

So that's what I will be up to this month!  How about you guys?  What organizing, moving or projects are you excited to focus on this month?  What is your biggest organizing dilemma when it comes to the bedroom space?  This gal just has to know, so spill it!
