Henry is obsessed with the barn. He actually cries when we make him leave.
And when anyone comes over, he has to bring them into his room right away for a tour. And then he shuts the door and makes them sit on the bed. (When my aunt and uncle were visiting, I think there were four adults, a toddler and a dog packed in there.)
It’s not easy to get a photo of such a tiny space (it’s 4.5 x 8 feet). But I wanted to show you how we fit it all in.
The crib (converted to a toddler bed) and the dresser fill the enter wall as you enter. His favorite books are stacked in the basket next to his bed. And I clipped his houndstooth quilt up as a makeshift window covering. I love it there! It’s super cute and darkens the room really well.
For his hanging clothes, we added an IKEA shelf with a built-in bar above his dresser. Unfortunately, when I hung all of Henry’s clothes, the bar broke. But Ryan was able to strengthen the barn and now it works great.
There are still a few things I want to complete (hang the Onion Grove art, do something with the books). But overall, Henry’s happy with his new space. He hasn’t seemed to miss his old room at all (although I did love that room).
And strangely, he seems to stay in his new room much better than he did in our old room. I think he likes that it’s a lot closer to us.
