From nursery to “big girl room”

Our youngest daughter turned two in November. While I was in no hurry to take down the crib and transform her nursery to a toddler room, we couldn’t deny that the baby room just didn’t work for her anymore. Plus, she was climbing in and out of the crib and I was worried she’d get hurt.

Her nursery was plenty cute and most of the furnishings would still work. Let’s take a look at what her nursery used to look like:

The furniture was mostly still useful. My dad built both girls matching headboards before he died, so we definitely wanted to use those. We also changed up her artwork a bit, hung some new shelves, and got two new pieces of furniture. I chalk painted a nightstand from Christmas Tree Shops and changed the hardware, and painted a shelf from my childhood bedroom.

Here’s a look at Aubrey’s new digs:

The monogram is papier mache from Hobby Lobby.

Here’s the redone nightstand. The drawer pulls are from Hobby Lobby. The rug, frame and lamp are from her nursery.

The baskets are left over from her nursery and the shelves were on clearance at JoAnn Fabrics.

These are IKEA Bekvam spice racks. I painted them white.

I repainted her small frames and purchased a new piece of art from Hobby Lobby to tie the room together.

We are just waiting on some baskets I ordered for her shelves. They’re on back order and we will use them to store toys.

A sweet room for a sweet and sassy little lady. What room refreshers have you done lately?
