Here we are a week from the due date of our second baby and we’ve FINALLY moved our first into her new digs! The following went down in this room: ceiling repair, lighting change, new paint. Other than those things we were really just shuffling furniture around…it’s hard to believe the room all came together with only a handful of purchases!
Here we were testing paint colors and clearing the room out…pre ceiling fix, pre ceiling fan swap, mid curtain trial run!
Then we moved it all in!
We just shared about the china cabinet turned armoire in this post. Beside it we have a laundry basket that actually holds stuffed animals and blankets (it makes for a quick clean up!). The chair is from TJ Maxx years ago and the booksellers table is Ballard Designs which was previously in her nursery (we got it second hand and I tried to find a similar link but it’s sold out..boo!). Curtains are pillowfort for Target. Rug is by At Home. Peg board letters are from Hobby Lobby…those are no longer sold and we got ours when they were something like 90% off!! These could (fairly easily) be made with a pegboard panel from Lowe’s (no more than $5), some paint, and a jig saw.
Toddler bed was second hand, nightstand is vintage Stanley furniture, mirror was a thrift store find, quilt rack was my grandmothers. Chandelier was a thrift store find spray painted white. Crib was actually mine from 1986. It’s a drop rail crib which is not something that could even be sold these days but we feel fine about it! In fact, once Everly starts climbing out being able to lower the rail will make me feel safer. Art is woodland doodles by me in some clearance Hobby Lobby frames (gotta love that 90% off aisle!). Everything in the room is hung a little higher than usual just to keep it out of reach of tiny hands. I’ve read once they move to a toddler bed you have to treat the whole room as if it’s the crib so they can’t get hurt if they decide to play in the middle of the night…
A burp cloth made by The Plum Poppy I just couldn’t stand to pack away yet!
So there you have it! One more room of the house checked off the list! (And one leaky roof FINALLY stopped!)
