After leading you on for months I finally have my act together. Here is the final reveal of Eleanor’s big girl room.
We had so much fun making this special room for Eleanor. It was tough saying goodbye to her nursery.
With baby #3 on the way, it was time. I was so nervous about her being upstairs and being in a big girl bed. It turns out all my worrying was for nothing. Isn’t that how it goes for us moms? She loves her big girl room, spends hours
destroying playing in it. We made the move well before baby came. We didn’t want her to have any hard feelings about her room or her crib being taken over. Baby #3 has been here 7 weeks and I am finally getting around to sharing Eleanor’s big girl room. We have been a bit busy around here.
I have kept you in the loop on the whole process, from the planning to the prep and every project along the way. Check it all out: the prepping, the reading nook, the low down on the reading nook, everything you need to know about carpet tiles, how the room was inspired, the hardware, the bedding, and the DIY magnet board.
I don’t know about you, but I love seeing a space transform. The best part is, this space represents my daughter in so many ways. Her obsession with letters (DIY magnet board), and books and hiding away in small spaces (reading nook) and coloring (chalkboard door). The fruit are a play off of the art that hung in her nursery. Every morning we would wake up to her sweet voice saying, “apple, pear, apple”. At nap time when I tuck her in, the light streams through the curtains and she points at them and says, “look mom, beautiful flowers”. In case you couldn’t tell, I am head over heels for this little girl. She turned two on mother’s day and is a little sponge. She is soaking up everything and every.single.day she blows me away with her brilliance. It was an honor to make this space for her.
Any of you transforming a space? Have a space you are itching to get your hands on? I’m dying to makeover our front porch, just waiting for money to show up. Isn’t that always the case?
