Girls Room {update}

Welcome back to the Girl's Room! Since school started today (yay!) we finished organizing their closet, bringing in their new school/fall clothes, pulling out the old play/summer clothes and getting their new desks ready for homework!
You can see the original post of the Girl's Room Reveal HERE.
So here are a few quick pictures of three updates of their room - the wreath, their desks, and their closet.

Here is the wreath BEFORE:

And the wreath AFTER:
You can read all about how I made this wreath HERE.

Here is the creative space and old table BEFORE:

And here are their new desks AFTER:


I found these desks at a county school yard sale for 10 bucks each. I originally had something wood in mind that I could paint, but this was all they had and in my small town, options are very limited. The price was right, it's always a plus finding a pair of something, and I actually really like them now! They were old computer desks. They are metal and have that modern industrial feel. They actually sell ones very similar to this at Crate and Barrel or CB2 painted a bright orange for lots more $! They are sturdy and the girls like them, so I can't complain!

And finally, here is the closet BEFORE:

I thought it was such a great idea to buy one of those closet rod extender things and then the littlest girl could hang up her own clothes. After getting over the fact that she thought it was a better idea to climb on it and hang from it like a monkey and broke it, I decided I like this much better anyway. Now they each have their own "side." Toys and books are organized in an Ikea Expedit shelf. Toys that need permission before getting down or that make a big mess are stored on the shelf above. There is also a shoe shelf on the left and a laundry basket of dolls and stuffed animals on the closet floor sides that you can't see. So far, this system works the best for us.

Well that's the Girl's Room for now! Thanks for stopping by and Happy Back to School to all you moms out there!
