This is what I have been up to

Back to school is approaching quickly.  Its the sudden panic of lets get everything organized in the house.  Well with that thought you know I have 3 boys.  While they are lucky to each be able to have there same room, we decided to move the twins beds into the same room and use the other room as a toy room.  Giving them that option they jumped on it.  Mostly since every chance they get they will sleep inn each others rooms on the hard floor just to be together. There nursery was in the same room together ,but once they hit about age 3 they would play instead of go to sleep so I separated them for my benefit and it worked out for us all.  It gave them a sense of individuality and me sanity.  Which says a lot. 
So where this is all going is.  Moving there beds into the same room meant a few things.  They have never had real bedroom suites.  A lot of mismatched finds.  So in order to create a unity we were on the hunt for matching bedding and matching headboards. 

Bedding from IKEA (it comes in red/white and green/white also)

Normally tortuous to my  children   3 boys is having to shop.  Yesterday was different.  We were on the hunt.  We had found matching bedding at IKEA (love that place).  So next was the headboards.  While I love to shop for bargains we headed to our Habitat for Humanities Restore in town.  Looking through all the doors I couldn't find the right one  two. They needed to match remember? We came across the shutters. Which there they were .  Plenty of  wide matching shutters.  A quick call to hubby to get the measurements of a twin and our decision was made.  Two shutters for each headboard at $10 a piece, meant 2 headboards for $40. Not bad.  Ended up even liking the color of them so no painting either. 
Still have alot of organizing  to merge and separate the rooms including painting the walls .  Pumpkin color goes great with navy blue but not the look were going for.  I will keep updating.
