Not So Little Anymore....

Thursday, March 28, 2013
Here it is.




And there it goes, my last "baby" room... Gone. Sniff, sniff. 




She will be turning 3 in June and so we finally decided it was time for her to move into a real bed and out of her crib.  Yes, I had put this off for several reasons.




Firstly, she had not figured out how to escape from her cage crib yet. Secondly, I knew everything would change and this meant facing the fact that this "baby" is not going to be a "baby" forever.

As Ayla would say, "I'm not a baby, I"m a kid." lol

But her growing up is inevitable so we will just have to embrace these memorable milestones!




I'm somewhat shocked as to how much furniture I squeezed into this tiny little room and happy this wing back chair (I got off craigslist when I was pregnant) got to stay.  It's one symbol left behind to remind me of the nights we snuggled together and read stories before I put her in her crib:)

Okay, sorry no more sappy.




I'm quite proud that almost everything in this room is recycled.  If only my husband could see how thrifty I really was?!.... lol.




I kept the original hardware.




In case you didn't know.  Brass is back.

Style at home magazine said so.




Which worked out great for me:)




Now I'm onto the next room makeover.  However, this one entails dealing with a strongly opinionated soon to be 8 year old girl.  So, I am approaching this one with some ease and patience:)  I'm working on the dressers right now.  And trying to come up with creative ways to compromise and please all of us. lol

Wish me luck!
