I refreshed Ellena’s baby girl whimsical nursery into a toddler big girl room including transitioning Ellena’s crib to a toddler bed. The end result was what I’m calling a Whimsical Bohemian Toddler Girls Bedroom.
This infant to toddler room refresh didn’t have the effect I was hoping it might as she’s still not sleeping much in her own bed. She’s been co-sleeping with my husband and I and that’s where she sleeps best… as for my husband and me, we can’t say the same, with the little feet in our face or her warm body cocooned against ours. Eventually she’ll be on her own at night, but for now, we’re enjoying all her littleness.
Then I added the canopy. I vaciliated between a sheer canopy and a solid fabric one and eventually opted for the solid. I also went with white instead of pink just in case I eventually decide to change out the pink for a different color like grey or lavendar.
As far as the added decorations, I took some of the dream catchers and flower crowns I had made for her bohemian themed baptism luncheon and incorporated them into her room’s decor. I hung the dreamcatchers on the walls. Initially I was going to hang twinkle lights on her canopy – I still might add them in, but for now, I took one of the flower crowns I had made and added it to the front of her canopy and then hung a dream catcher from the openining.
We don’t have a playroom in this house – it’s military housing so space is at a miniumum for us, so all of her toys and books are downstairs in the living room. I did bring up a few of her toys and books to try to entice her to actually want to spend time in this room.
Not much has changed with respct to her dresser. I was using her dresser as a changing table, but now she mostly gets changed on my bed or on the floor. The mobile I made for her nursery, now hangs above the dresser. I did adorn her wall unicorm with a flower crown.
All in all it was a pretty simple refresh and I’m so happy with this Whimsical Bohemian Toddler Girls Bedroom.
