We decided to keep the Ikea bed for now, until we get Isabella healthy and settled here. Then we'll reassess to see what will best fit the girls' needs.
They each have their own new dresser, and there is plenty of empty space on the bookshelf for Isabella to add her artwork and new things.
Rainbows and castles on the walls for my two princesses :)
The newly-divided closet is probably my favorite part of the room, because I love to organize stuff :) The neglected neat freak in me felt very triumphant after finishing this little project!
Isabella's needs for love, nutrition, and medical care far outweigh her need for stuff. However, I am looking forward to giving her so many things that she has never had: toys (and the freedom to get down on the floor and play with them), a calm pretty space to sleep in, and clothes of her own. Did you know that orphans own nothing? Nothing. She cannot even claim one single piece of clothing - everything is community property and the clothes she wears are mismatched and too big. One day, very soon, she will be able to point to the clothes in this closet and tell me which one of HER outfits she wants to wear! I think that is awesome :)
