Here is the promised tour of the former master now bebe’s room. As I mentioned before this room is big but the guest bedroom is so much bigger so we decided to put bebe in here instead. In in our old house we never really prepped a “nursery” for her. I always wanted a space that could easily transition into a big girl room, but keep the whimsical quality of a toddler.
With the large space it’s easy to want to totally pack stuff into it but I’m trying to keep the toy number down to a few pieces that she loves to play with. Another issue with this room is the lack of suitable lighting. The huge tangerine tree outside her window shades most of the light, so I’ve had to manipulate the photo exposure. The huge window lets so much glare in but I wanted to take a picture in the same position as the original was taken in. Once the tree is trimmed we should have much better lighting.
Here is the before.
And here it is now!
I tried not to deviate too much from her old room to make the sleeping transition better. We used a mixture of newer and vintage pieces to create her bedroom. We pulled in a tall Billy bookcase from the office to house her books and odds and ends. The A hooks are both from Anthropologie and they are perfect to hold her towels, necklaces and backpack.
The dresser is a rehab that I showcased here and I love the feminine curves of the legs. The basket is vintage and holds extra books and all her wooden blocks. Her toddler bed was a craigslist find and the Target bedding is something I scored for $7 on clearance!
The chandelier was from our old master bedroom at the townhouse and I thought it would go much better in here.
The table was a goodwill find that I spray painted with chalkboard paint. Her kitchen is a beloved toy and also useful for storing all of her pots, pans and knitted food items.
There is still so much to do, Mr. P wants to paint a piece of art for the large wall by the bed and we need to order the custom closet doors.
