Happy Tuesday, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful three-day weekend!! Our kids were out of school both Friday and Monday, so we tried to make the most of it. On Friday, we surprised them with an overnight trip to the Gaylord Texan Resort with the Slaughter fam and then on Sunday, we hosted a combo Labor Day/my mom’s birthday party at our house. It was the perfect way to spend the weekend 🙂 .
But now though, it’s officially September over here, and we’re fully committed to making the most of the season in every way possible. Don’t forget, you still have time…
If you missed our meme…
…here it is 🙂 . You can see all of the details on my post HERE about this contest. You guys are CRACKING ME UP with your memes!!!! We have been dying over your cleverness. You can see them all if you look up the hashtag #memeintofallwithMMM on Instagram.
Okay, now on to today’s post!
Two weeks ago, I shared…
…Madeley’s new bedroom, and today, I’m going to share Ashby’s!
But first, let’s back up…when we built our home in 2014, we had two kiddos and were in the process of bringing home our third and final kiddo, Miss Ashby.
Her room looked like…
…and it was perfect and sweet, and we loved it.
But thennnnnnnn…God called us to adopt another precious little girl (Four kids?! We never dreamed that would happen?!), so we changed it up a bit in 2016 for Mades…
…and added a pretty cool loft and closet for the two girls.
Then, when we started our new addition in 2020, we had space, so we added on a bedroom for Madeley, buuuut it stayed empty until this May when the girls officially decided it was time for her to move out. So, I blogged the pics of Madeley’s new room HERE, but we also updated Ashby’s room too 🙂 . When I asked her what kind of bedroom she wanted now that she’s getting her own space and a big ten year old…her choice was “beachy/surf girl” (hence why her little sister decided to have “beachy/Nantucket girl” room.
So here it is…
Come on in!
Ashby had a lot of opinions, and I tried to let her make it “her” at every turn.
She wanted to keep her ceiling pink but paint the walls white.
She picked out all of her own bedding, the rug and decorations. Ashby channeled her Lovie (an interior designer) and wanted to look thoroughly through everything online and in stores. I think the result is very “Ashby” 🙂 . We replaced the original carpet and put in hardwood floors (Smith’s room is now the only room left in the house with carpet). We were able to use Kensington’s former bed (we had saved it after her room makeover last year), but my personal favorite part is that amazing rug.
The sign above her bed is an Etsy find! It’s custom (her name and birth year) and looks like it’s made of wood, but it’s not. I love it!
Even upstairs got repainted white (with the pink ceiling, of course 😉 ).
For now, the girls still share this closet since they kind of wear each others clothes and really enjoy getting dressed together.
And that is Ashby’s room 🙂 .
