Infant to Toddler Room (part 2)
In a previous post, (Infant to Toddler Room (part 1) you saw how we transitioned our son’s room. Now let’s talk about our daughter’s (Madison) room.
My husband repeated the same process in my daughter’s room. He added wainscot and then he striped the walls. This time, he painted vertical stripes. We stayed consistent and made her accent wall on the same wall as the window.
Because I had so much owl themed items from the (Guess whoo’s having two themed) baby shower and from a really good friend, I decided on an owl theme. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out a tree using adhesive vinyl from Joann’s. Then, I got the bright idea to hang her name off the vinyl tree branch. I went to Home Depot and bought pink knobs so her name would hang from the tree branch. My friend helped me by gluing the ribbon to the wood letters.
Initially, I liked the room decor. Mainly because, I love owls (well also penguins) but the owl theme was popular at the time. Sometime after, I started realizing that the owl decor didn’t really match the wall colors or bedding. And then, it wasn’t really a clean look. Side note: I really feel like my pregnancy brain deceived me. Things I thought I loved while I pregnant, turned into dislike, postpartum. At this point, I didn’t know what I really wanted, but I did know that I didn’t want the owl theme. So, I decided to let her room stay until I could land on some solid decor.
Here are pictures of what her room looked like originally.
After pursuing Pinterest for toddler rooms, I started gaining an idea of how I wanted her toddler room to look. Definitely, more of a clean look. Which meant a less colorful wall and more neutrals. When we transitioned her room, I decided to select wall decor that better reflected her bedding and wall colors. So then, I made a trip (see below) to Hobby Lobby and found a plethora frames that are simply adorable!
I decided to get frames that had messages of inspiration. Who doesn’t want to wake to a sign reminding them that they are beautiful? In the world of negativity, I want to surround Madison around as much positivity as possible.
The shelves on the walls were actually mine from college! I bought them from Target and they are still in pretty good shape. We painted them to match the new color schematic in her room.
We also added a couple of vintage furniture pieces to go with the overall princess theme. These went nicely with her decor. As you can tell, we painted her bed. I was torn about it because I wanted to keep their beds the same color (due to my OCD nature).
For her bathroom, we added a couple of pieces and a bulletin board that she absolutely loves! These also better coordinate to the new colors. I love how all these pieces came together.
Below are some pictures.
We have since taken the rocker out of her room and my wonderful hubby has built her a tea table (diy post coming soon). I am currently thinking about changing the beds. My next idea is to have farm house twin-sized beds.
