Is it bizarre that I wish to transfer in to our daughter’s room? As a result of it’s so completely stinkin’ ADORABLE!
I imply, I received’t transfer in. However I can’t promise there received’t be the occasional mommy/daughter blanket fort on this area. (Particularly since I’m not likely a yard tenting with the bugs and filth form of mother.)
Every week in the past, her room seemed like this…
We hadn’t touched this bed room in any respect since we moved in final April. To be truthful, we’re been preoccupied with the lounge, breakfast nook, lobby, playroom, eating room, master suite, hallway lavatory, powder room… okay, you get the image. Every kind of busy. Enter the mother guilt.
However with a brand new infant on the best way, I’ve been decided to make Olivia really feel further particular and big-sister-ready in order that after we begin engaged on the nursery, she’ll have already got her personal fairly area.
She was gone out-of-state final week to go to a few of our shut household on spring break, and whereas she was gone, I painted like loopy for 3 days and my mother came visiting to assist me put up wallpaper over the weekend (whereas jamming out to Oldies, after all).
I so want I’d recorded Olivia’s response when she received residence and noticed it for the primary time. To sum it up, ALL the fan lady squeals.
(Some affiliate hyperlinks are supplied under.)
I painted the partitions Behr My Sweetheart, which is simply the right gentle blushy pink. And the trim is Benjamin Moore Merely White. Robert and I are planning so as to add image body molding under the chair rail in some unspecified time in the future.
For now, we simply have her mattress and field spring hanging out on the ground whereas we anticipate her new mattress to reach. (The previous one I discovered for $20 on the thrift retailer and painted three years in the past lastly bit the mud.)
Olivia’s solely two requests for her room have been butterflies and pink. In order that was the plan.
I searched excessive and low for butterfly wallpaper and located this wallpaper pattern at Anthropologie that I believed could be so excellent for transitioning into pre-teen/teenage years since Olivia is popping 6 this fall. It was a complete splurge, however because it was just one wall and solely the portion above the chair rail, it was fully price it.
(For those who ever wish to know how one can do it your self, right here’s my newbie’s information to hanging wallpaper right here. It’s not practically as scary as many make it out to be, particularly for only one wall.)
I continued the black door pattern that we now have happening in the remainder of the home too by portray hers Benjamin Moore Wrought Iron. I’ll nonetheless almost certainly change out the doorknobs for bronze or glass ones.
Robert and my dad ripped up the previous rug to disclose the gorgeous hardwoods beneath. We’ll be rolling out a smaller mushy rug ultimately simply so Olivia doesn’t must step away from bed onto a chilly flooring each morning.
The opposite aspect of the room is trying manner higher now that we’ve hauled out all the junk we weren’t positive what to do with but. (I sense a yard sale in our future.)
That Craigslist dresser is getting a makeover very quickly in every week or two. And I changed the previous blinds with these warm bamboo shades.
At this level, curtains, the brand new mattress, nightstands, a brand new gentle fixture, and a few wall decor is subsequent on the agenda.
Right here’s the place we’re on the to-do listing thus far:
