I can’t believe it’s time for the One Room Challenge again! If you are new here the One Room Challenge happens twice a year, once in the Fall and once in the Spring. The goal is to transform a room in 6 weeks time. I have participated in 3 other transformations and you can see the final reveals here:
This round I’m going to transform our 3-year-old daughter’s room into a big girl room! Recently Lucy became a big sister so most of her baby items were moved into Gabi’s room. We moved her into a big girl bed and I’ve slowly been transitioning her room but have always been too busy or pregnant to really make it her own. I created a beautiful room for her little sister and now I’m so excited to do the same for her! Here is how the room looked when we moved in:
Lucy was 11 months old when we moved in and we painted her room and I quickly made it into an adorable little nursery for her. I was really happy with how it turned out on a small budget.
Here are a few pictures of how her room looked before her big girl bed joined the room!
I plan to hang some decorative items around the room and paint the woodwork white. I have some beautiful fabric that I’m planning to use to make a cornice with an attached bed canopy for her daybed. Here is an example of what I am going for:
Here is my to-do list for Lucy’s Room:
- Touch up wall paint
- Paint woodwork
- Paint closet doors
- Frame & hang art
- Hang Curtains
- Build cornice for bed
- Sew bed canopy
- Repaint night stand
- Hang bookshelves
- Apply decals & hang mirrors
- Paint doors & apply o’verlays
- Change out the light fixture
- Change out light switch & outlets
Next week I’ll be back with progress on how the room is coming together! I can’t wait to put all of my ideas together and create a beautiful room for my little girl!
