This post is about 10 months late. But since we are moving out of our darling little home, I figured it was about time to share my FAVORITE room in the house.
I had a blast putting together our triplets’ nursery when they were born and my favorite thing about it was that I made everything myself, including hand-painting the art. But I was even MORE thrilled when it was time to transition into a Big Girl Room!
Okay, partially thrilled.
Getting rid of their cribs…NOT so easy. Emotionally AND mentally!
The girls did really well transitioning into beds, other than they still have to be separated for naps. It’s just one big slumber party every time they are in there. I can’t say I blame them.
But letting go of their cribs was just another reminder that I no longer have 3 little babies. Growing older can break a mother’s heart.
Anyway, putting my special DIY touch in this room was no exception. I made just about everything myself again.
Instead of a theme, I went for colors.
I made this darling garland out of fabric pieces. I intended on hanging their giant canvases under it but never got around to it.
I had my talented step-mom make these Stripwork Rag Quilts. I told her exactly what I wanted and even picked out the fabric and she did an amazing job!! They are a mixture of cotton and minky.
Here’s another close up of the quilts
It was hard finding just the right aqua ruffle curtain that I wanted, so I decided to make one myself. I thought sewing one would be a little too tedious, so this is what I did.
Then I cut it in half and voila!
We painted the entire room in the same light gray we used in our front room.
I added an striped accent wall
I wanted some BIG prints for their room but didn’t wanna spend the money so I found some of my favorite images on Google.com and printed them at Costco. I purchased the darling LDS Salt Lake City Temple print from www.taylorjoelledesigns.com
Then I got these $5 wood frames from Michaels Stores and sprayed them with a watermelon colored spray paint
I got this darling Moroccan rug at Target.com
I put together this super cute balloon cluster in the corner of their room using tissue pom poms and accordian paper balloons
And then I strung some mini white lights through their curtain rod for a magical nightlight
And there you have it! My easy Big Girl Bedroom Makeover!
I’m so excited to be able to add some fun ideas to it when we move!
