From nursery to toddler room: transitioning my baby to a big girl room

My youngest daughter will be turning 2 in just a few months. While she is still small, she is getting older and growing everyday, and her needs are changing as well. My goal for her toddler room is to simply upgrade her nursery a tiny bit to make it reflect her changing needs, but without making a lot of changes or spending a lot.

Here is what her room currently looks like:

My dad built matching headboards for both my girls before he got sick. This is one of them:

I am hoping to keep the shabby chic feel of the room but make it a little less “baby.”

I love this bedding at Target:


I’d leave the same rug and curtain, but I think instead of the chair and end table, I might create a teepee. What little girl wouldn’t love a teepee?


I also think I’d like to get a small bookcase and paint the back of it light pink. I might use the shelf as a nightstand and use a few baskets to hold her small toys and books.




I also want to do a more updated gallery wall than what she currently has. I love this one!!


          I am slowly but surely working on her room. I cannot wait to show you the results!
