Big girl room – the plans

How did she get big enough to be ready for a big girl room?


I’ve been pinning ideas for awhile now, and absolutely fell in love with this room from Petite Vintage.  I love the colors, I love the fact that it will grow with her daughter for awhile – something I want for Tori’s room.  We’re really lucky in that she hasn’t tried to climb out of her crib, but I’m ready for a new project, so I’m working on designs and mood boards to get everything together.  Most of her room, besides the actual making of the furniture, will be DIY.  I’m not sure when we’ll actually make the switch, but my project ideas can be done over time.

Here’s my rough idea for her room:


Clockwise, from upper left: room inspiration from Petite Vintage, Leirvik bed from Ikea, herringbone quilt pattern from Sew Dang Cute Crafts, Knodd bin from Ikea, confetti curtains from Land of Nod, and milk crate wall shelf inspiration from pinterest (the link took me to a bad one – so I don’t know the original source)


I’ve already bought and received the wall vinyl to make decals – I’m throwing around the idea of doing the clouds, or maybe doing the off kilter squares like the curtains.  But I do like the idea of both gold and white vinyl.  We did big trees at our old house in the living room, so other than measuring, I think the wall project will be easy – and one I can do without any painting!

I’m also DIYing the curtains – I have heat transfer vinyl on order to make them once I find curtains (which shouldn’t be hard).  The quilt won’t be done by me, but I’m really hoping my aunt (who’s amazingly talented in the world of quilt making) will make it for her.  The milk crates I think will be a fun addition for storage and visual interest.

What do you think of the ideas for her room?  Have you tackled any of these projects before?
