Gigi’s room was the 1st room that we prioritized when we moved two years ago. It looked a bit different since she was a baby (barely 1). We duplicated her nursery color and re-used most of the furniture (changing table, crib, glider, etc.).
I’ll share her original nursery with you soon but today we’re focusing on her big girl room!
When Gigi turned 3, we decided she needed to move to a big girl bed. I know there are different philosophies on that but this is what worked for us. She never climbed out of her crib and she loved it. I also think it was not a coincidence that she has never gotten out of her big girl bed :).
I got these curtains and rod from Ikea. I painted the rod with Valspar’s Brilliant Gold.
I also painted this little ballerina girl for Gigi. My mom bought her the painting below it from a local painter in our hometown. She is clearly a better people painter than I am :)-but I painted it with love for Gigi so I’m keeping it!
I really love the Pillowfort line at Target so I got some of their bins for toys. We have waaaay too many stuffed animals in this room.
I’m almost finished with my Ikea Latt table makeover so I set up a little tea party for her after school! I’ll post another photo once it’s done!
I recovered her laundry basket with her new dotty Dalmatian fabric that matches the pillow.
The “Now I lay me” prayer needlepoint was in my mom’s room and my room as a child and now it is in Gigi’s. It was needlepointed by my Great Grandmother, Meme and I love that Gigi gets to have it in her room too.
That’s her room! She loves it and I’m happy we could reuse things from her nursery as well as from my childhood room!
