madeleine’s big girl room

28th April 2015

IMG_9378We moved Madeleine into the bedroom next to the nursery since Baby Joseph would soon be moving in.  This room is where all my ‘nesting’ took place this pregnancy and I had so much fun decorating with fun colors, especially the gold glitter!














The furniture was handed down to us from our neighbors up the street and works perfectly for a little girls bedroom.  Check out this post to see how we cleaned them up good as new. The bedding is from Land of Nod and was one of M’s Christmas presents from Grandma and Papa.  The gold chevron curtains are from Francesca’s and the curtain rod was a standard size from Lowe’s that matches great with the wood finish on the furniture.


The hooks on the back of the door were left by the previous owners (thanks!) and Joe framed an old college mirror to create this little dress up space.


The collage wall is a collection of frames and items that I had already and a few things from Hobby Lobby, including the blue flower and ‘I’ll eat you up canvas.’ I made the flower garland myself! Stay tuned for a diy tutorial that is easy peezy!!IMG_9378


Madeleine really likes her room and I’m glad the transition was a smooth one.  We moved in all her closet and dresser items around February and started getting her dressed, playing etc. in there about that time as well.  One night we were putting on her pj’s and she wanted to lay down and cover up with her flower sheets so we tucked her in and never looked back.  I cried because I wasn’t quite ready for her to sleep in there but she lead the way and did really great.  We purchased one of those slings for the side so she doesn’t fall out and I really think it makes her feel safe and sleep better.  Her nap time was a tougher transition but we are back to at least an hour nap each day. Whew!IMG_9385


I’m excited to see Madeleine play and grow in her new room and I think the decor will adapt with her age for several years to come.  Look out for a post about organizing M’s closet coming soon!
