Audrey’s Big Girl Room

Someone has a new bedroom and she’s pretty excited about it! Making the transition from a nursery to a big-kid room for Audrey may have been all fun for her, but it was a little more difficult on my end. We know our family feels complete, but saying goodbye to the crib and rocker that I used for all three of my babies was a little emotional for me. Thankfully all of her old furniture was passed along to another young family that will get a lot of use out of it. And now we’ll move on to making new memories in her big girl room! For those interested, you can see what her nursery looked like, here.

The bedding was my jumping off point for her room. I found the quilt and sham in a clearance corner at PB Kids and fell in love with the colors. It was the perfect inspiration piece to work off of and thankfully she loved it too (she’s an easy one to please!).

I knew a daybed was my best option for her room as it’s quite small and I needed to maximize space. I ordered the trundle as well which gives us more storage space as well as an additional bed to use for company or slumber parties down the road!

I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to hang above her bed, but when I came across these canvases I knew they were perfect. Her favorite part is that we refer to her as ‘wild child’.

I was back and forth on her wall color, but ultimately settled on BM Gray Cashmere. I had not used this color before and it turned out even better than I had expected. It’s a beautiful blue gray that makes her room feel soft and cozy.

I had my eye on this mirror before I ever knew what I was going to do with it. I have a thing for mirrors (just ask Jack!) and knew this one would be perfect somewhere, so I grabbed it when it went on sale and held on to it. It’s now sold out, so I’m thankful I did!

I wanted to utilize wall space as best I could, so I found these bookshelves and loved how the wood tones tied in to those in her mirror. The bars were actually a dark brown, so I took them off and gave them a quick coat of spray paint to soften the look.

Tall baskets are a must for my kids rooms. They make it easy for a quick clean up!

This night light was a fun find and Audrey loves it. It creates the sweetest little hearts on her wall come night time <3

A quick Target run was all I needed to find the perfect accent pillows to complete her bed. I love the mix of pink and blue!

Both Audrey and I are thrilled with how it turned out. I’m hopeful that she’s going to love it for years to come! If not, I’ll trade with her ;)
