Have you ever been stuck in a rut when it comes to a bedroom- you don’t know how to change it you just know you want it changed, it needs a freshen up?
That’s exactly how I felt about Ava and Raegan’s room. Here’s the link for what her room used to look like prior to Raegan being born. When Raegan turned around two months old we moved her in Ava’s room. They both sleep quite heavy so we had no real problems with one waking the other up.
We obviously had to change the layout of the room to fit a cot, single bed and large chest of drawers. I was also getting a little tired of the watercolour dots on the wall. Thankfully they’re removable so we re-located them all to the playroom!
I DIY added the tassels to a basket I already had been using for Ava’s stuffed animals.
The “you are capable of great things” print relocated from her playroom to her bedroom a well as the fluro coloured tassel garland.
I didn’t have to buy anything additional- by simply switching out pieces we already had I was able to change the room into a little more grown up for our 3 year old while keeping the left side still simple and complimentary for Raegan.
For a number of years I have pinned and saved pictures of pillow DIY’s- from mountains to houses, numbers, letters- you name it. There’s something about an over sized piece of fruit or number that yells “I am fun!! Your baby will love me!” There are so many companies out there that make absolutely adorable decorative pillows for kids- I’ve linked some of my favourite below. I’ve also found a few tutorials that will help you make your own! This DIY is definitely being added to my “to do” list for Ava’s room and playroom!

It is not secret that I love looking at kids bedroom ideas. There is something extremely fun and exciting about designing a space for a little one to explore every day- at least I’ve found it to be so! A bedroom needs to have the necessity of storage and a bed but then everything else is totally left up to the designer! I am by no means an interior decorator but my heart skipped a beat when I saw the final layout of the rooms (especially the little girls’ room.. I know.. I’m partial)! You guys, I am dying over that little girls bed- like literally swooning.
As Ava gets older I will definitely start looking into transitioning her into a big girl bed- as practical as bunk beds or trundel beds are I cannot ignore these little house beds that are EVERYWHERE at the moment.. Should I throw caution to the wind? I would love to hear your feedback as to when you moved your kids to big beds and how you went about changing their rooms up.

Because we created a playroom for Ava we were able to re-arrange her bedroom and create more room! By removing a large white sofa bed we had in her room (It’s surprising the amount of room it took up) we could finally put a little tent which she loves! Sources linked below!
