since i have been procrastinating some time, i took some pics of the girls room. i started this about 6 months ago 
and am still working on the finishing touches. i just finished this swing not too long ago. and i love it!
and i thought of this all by myself. i love using the rope for hair clips. the girls think its cute!
i just have to figure out something for leaves. either toilet paper rolls, or fabric leaves... thoughts???

it might not look like it, but this is a very organized and small closet for 2 little girls. i saw this floating shoe rack somewhere in blogland, after they saw it on some fancy-pancy store's website, for like 200$. this cost me uhhh... about nothing, except for the hardware to put it in the wall. and the paint. this is actually wood from a pallet the hubz brought home. along, with the coat hook on the wall.  
 here is a closer view of the floating shoe rack. pretty cool huh? it's easy. i figured it out. got some smaller wood strips, screwed the purple pieces into them, then used supports and got them into the wall. maybe i should brush up on proper lingo here, but i hope that helps some. if anyone wants to know how i did it, i can do a better tutorial, i'm sure!
 here is another coat rack, right behind the girls' door, with a couple pictures. i want to get a shelf here too, so, that should fill up the blank spot. and another picture i think. i used ribbon to hang the frames, got the frames from the dollar tree
 pretty flowers i painted on the wall. its cute with their little table underneath, however, their room is a mess, so no pictures of the floor right now

and watch for the update of this. this is in the hallway and it is going to be chore central -- or the "helping hands". this part, i just put in a couple nails, put twine on, did mini clothes pins (from dollar tree -- love that store), hot glued (and burned fingers) buttons on and have the kids chore charts laminated. i have a great idea to finish this, but i have to wait for all the little ones to be here and us not have anything going on for it.

Fabric leaves would be cool, I'm trying to think of something interactive for them that wouldn't give you much of a headache...
