Room Makeover | From Toddler to Big Girl

When the girls told us their bodies were outgrowing their converted crib beds, we finally gave in to makeover their room from toddler to big girl.  It’s been a work in progress, but we’re finally there.  They sleep better than ever before in their comfy new beds.  So comfy I often fall asleep next to one of them as we sing to sleep.

Grammy has this amazing scripture she quotes over us regularly, and I’ve been itching to use it since before the girls were born.  I found an Etsy designer who took my custom order, and I can’t imagine a better location than framed over the bed, speaking truth into these little lives each night.

I’m still not sure about the unicorn or the flower, so I’ve swapped them out here.  We’ll see. Options are good.  Those silver arrows were on clearance at Hobby Lobby.  The original distressed wood didn’t work with the room, so I painted them silver.

These are the paper butterflies from the Pottery Barn baby mobile, originally in the nursery.  I couldn’t part with them so I cut up the mobile and tick-tacked them to the wall.

The sweetest corner that reminds me how quickly they are growing up.

Repurposed framed baby dresses, and beaded hearts from Restoration Hardware that I’ve had my eye on since the girls were born.

And lastly, a little DIY jewelry stand the girls and I did together.  The cold, gray stand needed an update of pink pom poms, so we hot glued the fringe for a cute update.

Not gonna lie.  There may have been a few tears shed when those cribs were given away, but what a sweet time in life for our family.  New found independence, and a deeper bond than ever between these two, make for special days.

My best to you.
