Toddler Bedroom Makeover Reveal

I’m done with the bedroom, hurrah!  Here is my Toddler Bedroom Makeover Reveal! 

I’m happy to say I met my Friday deadline…I started Tuesday at noon and finished Thursday at 4pm.  Best part?  Total cost was less than $30!  Love that.

My favorite accessory in this very small space is the printable I created for my daughter.  Every night I sing “You are My Sunshine” to Laney. She’s memorized the 1st & 2nd verses, it’s adorable to hear her sing along (:
Printable available HERE! Scroll down, 7 colors available!
Loving that cute frame? Me too, get it here.

Note: If you’ve been following along my saga, lol, here are Day 1 and Day 2‘s progress.  Here are some more final shots:

Today’s progress:
  • Created chain & hung birdcage.
  • Created frame and matte + hung Laney’s pic.
  • Painted & put up shelf on shabby hooks.
  • Painted piggy turquoise, no more baby look.
  • Created garland above window.
  • Painted & hung planters to toy/book storage.
  • Bought new sheets + pillowcases.
  • Recycled chicken wire window frame to bow storage.
  • Accessorized. [Funnest part!]
Loving her room.  The pink mirror in the closet is fun for her to check herself out.  The chicken wire frame helps display her too-many-bows-and-flowers, the headband holder fits perfect tucked inside her closet too.  Organization is cleansing ;)  Here are all the mini projects that pulled this room together.  What do you think??  Is a bum knee and sore shoulder worth it??

Flower Planter to Toy Storage:

Recycled Fabric Bunting:
This is pretty self explanitory [triangles.hot glue.jute] BUT the twist is that I made it recycling the fabric that the sheet & pillowcases came in along with a little chenille fabric.
Recycled Frame:
The pic I had of my little missy is an 11×14 but the recycled frame I wanted to use is a 12×14.  What to do? Using 2 Elmer’s foam boards [no glass], I cut it to size, hot glued it in place and double-sided the pic onto my homemade mat.  Not too shabby. Tip: No hanger in the back of the frame? 2 eyehooks + jute is a quick replacement!

Hanging a Birdcage:
Tip: Leftover jewelry parts make great looking chains for hanging your birdcage.  Easy.

Painted Piggy Bank
I needed a pop of turquoise and this baby-ish but still cute piggy bank was perfect!

Monogram Initial:
Love this “D” I picked up at Joann’s when my babe was born.  To hang, I screwed in 2 eye hooks, looped in some coordinating ribbon & hung from a crystal knob.  Simple customization.  

*   *   *
So glad to get Delaney’s bedroom decor checked off my [long] to-do list. My little girl said to me after her bath tonight, “I like my room, Mommy. Thank you!”  Bah!-I almost died.  She THANKED me on her own!!
Cutie.

    Great job! I'm getting ready to redo my kids rooms…at least it's on of my 2012 goals :)

    Do you have a separate toy room? I think that's my biggest problem…where to put the gobs and gobs of toys :-/

    Gorgeous! And, holy crapola, you work fast! I'm pretty sure weeks upon weeks were spent on my toddler's big boy room. It looks fantastic! I love the planters on the wall. And I would not have thought to paint the piggy bank! Fabulous job, Kelli!

    THANKS for the love, ladies!!! Much appreciated! I think posting all the pics took longer than actually decorating her room (:

    Planters were from a garage sale: $6 total=score! Chicken wire frame I've had for years, originally a $2 garage sale find that I stapled chicken wire into…love a good old window frame (:

    Thanks again friends! XO, Kelli

    Such a sweet room (and darling little girl!)…the yellow color reminds me of the gallon of paint that's been sitting in the closet since September meant for my daughter's room (who is 14 mos). Thanks for showing this beautiful project (and little girl).

    Lolly Jane

    Hi Tania! You're a no-reply blogger so I hope you come back to see my answer (:

    The headband holder is a magazine rack! I got it free at a swap years ago and it's perfect for all those awkward sized headbands!-and they don't get crumpled or anything.

    Thanks for the compliments, everyone! XO
