I've been wanting to let the girls have a bedroom of their own for a long time. It can be small but it will be pink, it will have a bunk bed and it will be a cosy place where they look forward to unwinding, sharing secrets and just doing girly stuff together. Well, back in our old house, they did have a room but it was more like a storeroom-cum-bedroom since we didn't have much space to spare. In addition, the little sister would always come over to sleep with me and the baby, leaving the hubby to sleep on her mattress instead. Yes, we usually had to split ourselves up between the kids, does that happen to you too?
Moving to the new house, I was determined to change that and make my dream happen. Sure, the bedrooms in our new house are quite cramped and this tour is going to be very short because there just isn't much stuff you can put in 8sqm of space. But, we finally have a girls' room in our house, or what the kids prefer to call the Princess Room, and I'm just very, very thankful for that.
Let me show you just how it looks like.
To be more precise, we have a triple deck bed because there is a pull out bed at the bottom too. Once you pull it out, there is actually not much space to even walk or move around in the room! Still, we do it when they sleep because it helps to act as a cushion in case either of them were to fall off and it also gives the hubby or me a place to lie down if the girls wish to have a few minutes of our company. So far, the girls have been awesome and they have been going to bed on their own, giving me time to be with the baby since the hubby is usually not back from work yet.

Purlife, our home is now installed with air purifiers and I will be doing a review on them soon.
