new room

new room

A few months ago, we converted a small three-season sun porch off the back of our house into a year-round bedroom for Matteo. The sun porch was great and well-used but losing the space in the winter was tough. When we learned we were expecting another baby we knew we needed to expand and would have to say goodbye to the sun porch as we knew it.

Here is what it looked like when we first moved in:

And last summer, when we used it as an extra playroom:

And now, ta-da – a four-season big boy bedroom!

I love that he has his own little room and I’m really happy with how it turned out. Being able to use that extra space through the winter really has helped make the house feel larger. And now that we know we’re having two boys, eventually we’ll probably give them both of the spaces to share with one room for sleeping and one for play.

But I have to admit, on sunny days with all of the windows open, that daybed was a *really* pleasant place for a nap.

Lucky for us (insert sarcastic laugh here) our napping days are going to quickly be behind us. I have the feeling we’re going to be too busy to even think about those lazy sun porch afternoons.

(Oh yeah – STILL PREGNANT.)
