Big Girl Bedroom

Little Control Freak has taken to her big girl bedroom very well. Sleeping in her new bed has been an adjustment (amazing how they must feel more secure in a crib), but we are making good progress, which is a relief since her brother will be arriving soon.

There are still some finishing touches I want to make, noted in the images below, but I’m very happy with how the room turned out and so is Little Control Freak. She has been calling it “My Room” from day one. I wish my photography skills were better to capture how bright and colorful the room is, I’ll work on that 🙂 Without further ado, introducing the Big Girl Bedroom.

Pinspiration Reminder


The Results


Sherwin Williams wall paint in Lighter Mint. Land of Nod area rug, that was my big splurge but it was still on sale! Stay tuned for a project to decorate the wall above the headboard, currently a work in progress and may or may not involve the antique gold frame I found 🙂


Big Girl Bed!

This was my first bedroom set when I graduated college (graduation gift from mom and dad thanks!) and actually our Master Bedroom furniture until Little Control Freak inherited it.


  • Lamp from Christmas Tree Shops
  • iHome from Little Control Freak’s nursery
  • Kitty bank was mine as a child
  • Coral polka dot napkin purchased from HomeGoods, great accent, but doubles to protect the furniture
  • Fillable lamp from the Christmas Tree Shops (filled with shells from summer vacation 2015)
  • Other decor from Little Control Freak’s nursery
  • Baby cradle from Christmas now lives in her big girl bedroom
  • Will be hanging these great pics I found on Etsy, once the custom frames arrive, in the empty space above the dresser (thanks Nonna for the gift!)IMG_7172
  • Tray and comb holder, both finds from HomeGoods
  • Other decor, previous gifts from Little Control Freak’s Nursery
  • Angel by Valerie nightlight (4 hour timer) is a great nightlight that swirls glitter, looks like ocean waves on the ceiling at night (gifted form QVC)
  • Closet is pretty basic for now as most of Little Control Freak’s clothing fits in her dressers. Will definitely work with this as we have more to add.
  • Pocket door hanger is a great way to tame little shoes from being scattered everywhere
  • Laundry bin also sorted by color with labels, will help Little Control Freak to learn how to sort her laundry over time.



Gallery wall and play center. Luckily all of the lovely artwork was something we already owned or that we were gifted!


Artwork was from an old address book, address book has since been tossed, but I kept the lovely quotes and just trimmed the rough edges. Fit perfectly in the Etsy purchased frame (only purchase I needed for the wall!)


I purchased this card last summer with the intention of using it for decor. The string that hangs it? That was the ribbon that held the polka dot napkins together from my HomeGoods purchase, upcycle!


DIY canopy as seen on Pinterest! So cheap! Yet so lovely 🙂


Love me some IKEA, these RASKOG utility carts are perfect for holding books and toys.


I would say they look pretty happy and agree 🙂


Again my photography skills are not great, i’ll work on that, but this looks lovely and bright when standing in the bedroom. The window sheersthe hardware and blackout/thermal cellular shades were all purchased when there were big sales at JCPenney.

Next up on the list, updating the nursery for baby boy!
