Kendall's Big Girl Room Reveal

It's hard for me to wrap my head around this reveal because I'm pretty sure I JUST posted her nursery reveal.  But alas I have a big girl now.

We started working on her big girl room transformation around Christmas when we got the bedding. I slowly started making changes to the wall art, changing out the baby blankets for baskets full of girly toys on the changer, new curtains {goodbye hideous valance!}, and moving the glider into the new nursery.  Then one day in February we decided it was finally time to bite the big girl bed bullet and never looked back.

At first she didn't like all of the changes. She didn't want the mirror hung above her changer, she wanted the glider back and she definitely didn't want me taking her original wall art from over her crib.  But now? Girlfriend LOVES it!  Any time someone comes over she can't wait to show them her new!big!girl!room! even if they've already seen it a dozen times before {sorry mom}.


I had a hard time just picking the bedding because while I wanted her room to be all Big Girl I still wanted it to be toddler appropriate, she's only 2 after all.  But Jimmy and I both fell in love with the owls and most importantly it matched her walls already {even if I secretly wanted to repaint them}.

Her butterfly mobile and butterfly wall art that I made before she was born stayed put because I loved them and couldn't part with them just yet.  Due to too many toys it was time to get her table and chair set out of the playroom and I thought it'd be nice to give her a little spot in her room that she can have quiet time and so she's got a little nook that she plays tea party mostly.


I knew I had to take down the board that was over her bed because now it just seems so baby-ish to me but I didn't know what I wanted to put in it's place.  I thought I wanted to do the fabric hoop things but then realized it was more expensive than I thought. I  thought about using the heart felt banner that's strewn across the foot of the bed but we liked it so much .  Then there was the idea of a new decal and then I found A Fete Beckons on Etsy.  She had the cutest pennant banners and in just the colors I was looking for without being too matchy matchy.  Seriously, check her out!!


See that cute little end table?  Oh just a little something I crafted up with some extra fabric I had from another Pinterest fail.  I kinda love it and it's just what we needed for our books we read at night.

My favorite transformation is the wall that the changer was on.  I never really loved that wall to begin with but now I do.  It's kinda like a vanity only not.  It has her little basket of lotions, girlfriend loves lotions, and then the shelves are just full of baskets with her little trinkets, mostly little things {dress up jewelry} that I wouldn't want the baby to choke on when he gets here.


All in all we love being in there.  The best thing is that every morning when she wakes up she likes me to crawl in bed with her and snuggle for a few minutes before she's ready to get up and out of bed.  LOVE that time with her.

  9. LOVE LOVE LOVE the room. I seriously love the bedding. I am secretly hoping for a girl now. I have a few pinterest crafts I want to do in Carter's room to take it from toddler to "big brother". Once we have his new furniture and organizers I plan on doing a Big Brother Room Reveal.
