Nursery and Big Girl Room


Well, I think I can finally check "changing Peachy's room into a big girl room" off of the to-do list. You can read about the beginning of the transformation here. The short and sweet version is that our kiddos are going to be sharing the room and now it is a combo nursery/big girl room. While we didn't make many big changes, the paint color is the same, the crib bedding is the same, the basics are the same, I love that the changes we did make give it that little bit extra.
It started with making the bedding for the big girl bed. You can read all about the quilt here. (Coincidentally, Peachy decided it was time to start sleeping there. She does really well at night. Naps however, have turned into playtime. I am really struggling with trying to figure out how to get naps back.)
Other than the bedding the other major change was adding shelving to the closet. While it may not be picture perfect, it is nice to have more shelves to put things on.
All of  the other changes involve art work and decorations.
We put up some Chinese lanterns above the bed.  (They were purchased at Hobby Lobby.)
I made a subway art with Peachy's birth information. Below that I hung her name out of wood letters. To the right is the barrette holder I made. You can read about the barrette holder here.
We used IKEA spice racks for book shelves and I made an alphabet wall art. You can read about that here.
I added new ribbon to the dresser pulls. You can see the original idea here.

I painted a canvass of Peachy's favorite song, "Jesus Loves Me." I got the orginal idea from Etsy.



After lusting after the frames from Organic Blooms, I decided to try my hand at knocking them off. I will post more on this later this week.
Here are some of the original nursery items. You can read more about our original nursery transformation here.

And that about sums it all up!

I am linking to the following parties.
