I’m so excited to finally share photos and details of the girls shared room! the twins have always been in the same room and shortly after we upgraded and transitioned Baker to a twin sized bed (right around the age of two) she started sleeping on a trundle bed in the twins room- the three of them are very close and Baker begged every night to sleep with her sisters. often times she would end up in Jolie’s bunk snuggled in close and it was just the sweetest thing you’ve ever seen. after nearly a year of Baker sleeping in the twins room (and now we have a baby on the way!) we decided to make it official. they wont be in a triple bunk (or share a room) forever but it was the perfect option for this “season of kids”.
the room isn’t very big, but we keep their toys in our playroom, which was once the formal dining room- so they don’t really need a huge bedroom for toys and storage. I will say, since we have updated this room a bit (its my favorite room in the house right now!) the girls play in here a lot together! scroll to the very bottom for sources and let me know if I’ve missed anything!
photography by jaime denholm photography paint color is Repose Gray by Sherwin Williams. after painting the boys’ rooms this color we totally fell in love with it! actually we’re planning on painting the rest of the house this color, too 🙂 its a great neutral “greige” that pulls more beige/brown and less green, which is tough with grey paint color. these name signs are SO beautiful and very well made. each of my kids now have their own name sign from the polymath mom! I’ve gotten a few questions about the details on the signs and I wanted to update the post to share the details

I have seen several other blogger moms store their girls’ hair bows in a tiered basket- for the longest time I used a really cheap one from hobby lobby and when we moved the girls in together I splurged on this sturdy one and love it! the closet. my biggest concern with putting three girls in one room was the closet space. we were very lucky to find a gigantic dresser with lots of drawer space but the closet was still an issue. I needed more drawer and hanging space and we were already busting at the seams when Parker and Jolie were the only ones using this closet.. thank goodness for IKEA. I haven’t ever purchased anything from IKEA before now, and guys! I love that place, ha!!
we opted for the IKEA PAX Wardrobe and after browsing this section of the store for what seemed like forever we found one that best fit the measurements of the closet and with the help of an IKEA employee I told him exactly what I wanted (drawers/shelves/hanging rods) and it has worked out perfectly! the measurements in this closet was right at the cut off for the larger PAX system, BUT going with the smaller one offered space for shoe shelving to be built into it; three girls = a lot of shoes! Jordan’s buddy at the fire station does amazing wood work and he helped us with building the shelf. you cant completely tell by the photos but the shoe shelf goes up to the top of the ceiling in the closet! it also holds about three pairs of shoes deep. the two storage boxes hold Parker and Jolie’s projects and school work worth keeping and the tray I picked up from hobby lobby holds little trinkets and jewelry, our tooth fairy mouse (we haven’t lost any teeth, yet!) and a yummy smelling candle with the lid off (I don’t burn it in here, of course) to offer a happy scent when you open the closet.. and to offset any stinky shoes 🙂
