House tour- Norah's big girl room.

Norah moved into her big girl room a couple months ago, but it took awhile to finish all the details. We love how it turned out! We moved her to our guest room, and the twins are now in the nursery. We moved Kley's guitar stuff out of the main room in the basement (another post to come), and got another bed down there for guests when they come. 

Her bedding is the Hannah Floral from Pottery Barn Kids, and I like it because it's pretty and it will last her for a long time I think (like it doesn't look too young that she will outgrow it too quickly and it's not a specific thing that she might not like in the future). It turned out really nice I think! 

I really love how the gold dots on the wall turned out. We ended up using a friends' extra, which turned out great! I started with more in the top right and gradually did less across the wall because I knew we would be hanging things above her bed. I winged it, which was nerve wracking, but it turned out well I think.


The Norah letters are from her nursery (from Pottery Barn Kids a few years ago), and the "You are my Sunshine" paint is from her nursery also, that we had painted for her room from Megan Carty Art. The other frame had a newborn photo collage in it and we traded that out for one of her two year pictures.


We had a lot of work done to her closet. Below is a picture of it when we first moved in. The doors slid open and there was just a single rod, and the shelf up top was just open space that was hard to reach. 


We took out the top shelf and had doors and trim painted to match the other trim throughout the house, which looks much cleaner. We had the doors go to the ceiling instead, and had a long shelf on top with a rod underneath, and then we had shelves installed all up both sides of the closet. This makes it so much more functional and we can use the space much more efficiently.



Her newborn canvas is from her nursery, and I'm thankful the room was big enough to have some of her toys in there too, like her kitchen/laundry. She loves it!


This picture turned out dark, but her curtains are from her nursery too, from Pottery Barn Kids a few years ago, and the shelves on the wall are super cheap ones from Ikea, and we spray painted the brackets underneath gold to match the dots.


The two decorative pillows (pink lace and cream with small gold sequins) are from Target.


The Trust in the Lord wooden plaque is from Hobby Lobby, and the carousel horse print was actually from my old bedroom when I was young. My parents were getting rid of it and asked if I wanted it, and I think it looks so nice in her room, and neat that it was mine! It's light pink and the frame is gold, so it fit well. The alphabet poster is from her nursery also, from Paper Source. The chair is old from our first apartment.


I love how this book corner turned out! These are cheap spice racks from Ikea that we spray painted gold. 



Norah has done so well with the transition. We love you, Norah, and hope you enjoy your room for years to come!
