Shared Room for a Boy and Girl

Update: My son and daughter no longer share a room, but we all liked the colors, decor and organization from this room!

It’s finally done! I’ve been sharing my attempts at decorating and organizing the room my youngest son and daughter are going to share for a little while, while we hopefully finish some remodeling.  The room they are sharing was my daughters, so I wanted to change it enough to make it little boy friendly.
