Tour our home ~ boys' room

Today I am showing you in our boys' room.  Actually, my husband calls it a walk-in closet.  When we moved in to this apartment, there were only two bedrooms.  For almost a year we lived with the main living room serving as a bedroom and living room.  That didn't work very well for us, so my husband built a wall to divide this room into two rooms.  The bigger the kids get - the tighter the fit, but it's what we have for now and we do our best to make it work.
Their room is not always this clean, but they are all doing better at keeping things cleaned up.  I do feel like a broken record at times, though, as I remind them to put their dirty clothes IN the hamper, not ON the hamper....or to put their shirts ON hangers instead of on the closet floor....or to put trash IN a trashcan and not on the floor.  But with three boys in such a small room, it is necessary for them to keep things organized and tidy as much as possible.
So, lets head in....


The wall to the left of the window (behind the bookshelf and closet) is the one that was added.  Since there were two windows in this room, it worked out nicely for each room to still have a window once it was divided.
I made the curtains from the bedskirt that came with the boys' bedding.  I'm a little puzzled why this bedding had a "skirt" with it, but it was nice to have the material for curtains.


The airplane poster was purchased as a souvenir from our visit to the Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C.    The other posters were given to my boys and the wall stickers were purchased on Ebay. 




It's a cozy little room and we've tried to make the best use of e.v.e.r.y. l.i.t.t.l.e. b.i.t. of space.

  1. We totally understand the tight living spaces. We are a family of 7 living in 1,150 sq. ft.... in the USA! :-) David and I have often commented to one another that it is actually the Lord's blessings on our family - We always know where the kids are and what they are doing, which, in turn, keeps everyone out of trouble and honest! It also helps us from collecting a lot of clutter. It is a blessing in disguise!!!

    1. Ron and I have mentioned the same things. There are advantages to a small home.
      Being on the field, though, we spend more time at home than we probably would if we were in the states. Plus, our boys are SO big (one is 6ft tall and the other is 5'11" and they are both still growing)
      All my boys really like their room though and we are so thankful for the place God has given us to live.
      Thanks for stopping by!
