I had so much fun showing you my twin girls’ room last week that I thought I would show you my other little girl’s room. And I told you in the other tour that I want to show you my authentic life, so I thought you’d enjoy seeing my little Izzy’s Room exactly as I found it while she was at school.
I came up to take advantage of the afternoon light and I enjoyed seeing all of the 6 year old “touches”, I didn’t want to mess that up!
First of all, notice how there is writing and stickers all over furniture and walls? Yeah, I don’t know how to get that to stop. I’ve gone over it with her a million times that writing and stickers are for paper, but the lesson just never sticks. So by now, I just find it an endearing little quirk. Izzy is my little mini-me and I love how her brain works. She works so hard to keep her room clean. Several times I will come and re-organize something or move the furniture and she just moves it right where she wants it. She even told me exactly where she wanted the stuff on the wall. I know her independent streak will be an amazing attribute when she is a grown woman. 🙂
I tried to put her table by the wall, but she likes it in the middle of the floor. She often drapes blankets on top of it as a “tablecloth”. Her purple bean bag goes in the playroom, but she always drags it right back here.
She took a chair from a different closet and put it by her night table to create her own desk.
She asks if her baby brother can come play in her room. She calls it her “fun play house for babies”. When he plays in here with her, she puts a sign on the door labeling her play house open for business. Of course, baby goes straight to the kitchen set and pulls everything out. She is so sweet to invite hime to play and then clean up after him!
Isabelle painted her name board a few years ago. I love using her own art work as decor! I made her twin quilt when I was expecting her instead of a baby blanket. Some sweet ladies from church did the hand-quilting for me after I pieced it together.
She is extremely picky about what goes on her art clips.
My favorite thing on there is this “Routine” (aka routen) that she made for stuffed animal. “Eat Befest”. Be still my heart.
Her room just makes me happy.
I like short dressers for kids rooms so that they can reach everything themselves.
Here is her walk-in closet. I think she keeps this pretty organized for a 6-year-old!
She helped me pick out containers for her Lala Loopsy and My Little Pony Christmas presents. Before I had the chance to label them, she created her own labels from her notebook and just taped them on. She just has a natural love for order!
This is where she likes these containers in this room.
She has put her mark on every corner of the room.
She put her markers in this basket and always has a notebook handy.
That’s it! I hope you enjoyed this little tour!
Now you’ve seen the rooms of my Four kids.

Mary, thank you so much for showing your girl’s room, is so delightful. You put so much love in being an organized mommy, your girl has the spirit too. Congratulations!
Oh thank you! It is so fun to be the mom of these kids. They keep me laughing for sure!

Oh my goodness, her room makes me happy too! 🙂 Love that she likes to rearrange things to have them “her way”! Also LOVE the wall art above her little kitchen!
Thank you!! When I was her age, I also re-arranged my room almost every Saturday. She brings back memories!
What a happy room! Thanks for sharing.

I love the little shelf in the corner! I think I saw one in the older girls room also. Where did you find that? I’d love to find one for my little girl.
That little shelf came from Amazon years ago (I mean, at least 7, I think). I’ve gotten rid of all the little shelves now, the end of an era. 😉
Love it! I love the colors and the organization. I am still working on it with my kids!
Just keep working on it, it’s a process!
