Room Reveal: Sadie's Big Kid Room!

Thursday, March 6, 2014

I'm so excited to finally share Sadie's new "big girl room" - it was a lot of planning and some heavy lifting, but we got everything moved in and set up within a few hours!

Switching our house around to give Sadie this great space was 100% worth it - she's closer to everything else (our room, the dining room, kitchen, etc), there great natural light, high ceilings, and plenty of storage. We no longer have to keep a space heater running because the room stays plenty warm. And even though the room is in a high traffic area (just off our front door) she has been sleeping great!

Polka dot feature wall using decals above Sadie's crib and a hopscotch rug is featured in the center of the room.

We switched Sadie's yellow dresser from a changing table to a storage spot for diapering items and clothes she has recently grown out of. We now simply do diaper changes on the rug, and it works out great.

Polka dot wall “nooks” used to store Sadie's monitors (regular video monitor and WiFi Dropcam). These nooks already existed in the room and they're really convenient.

Sadie's toy bin/bookshelf works perfectly for her (growing) library and collection of toys, and her growth chart is on the wall.

Wall for Sadie's coats, slippers, and sweaters featuring adorable owl wall hooks.

New crib sheet, pillowcase cover, and quilt made by me to brighten up the space (note: we are not yet using the pillow or quilt for night or naps).

A Sadie-accessible closet features all of Sadie's current clothes, pajamas, and socks all at her level (minus, of course, the dresses).

Sadie wanted to get in on the photos!

We are just in love with Sadie's space! It’s a very functional space for a growing girl, giving her better access to her clothes and toys and allowing her to hang up her coat and sweatshirt herself. And because we owned so many of these items already, we did not have to purchase very much to make this room happen. Below I’ve detailed the where we sourced everything in the room, broken down by items we already had and items we purchased for the new room.
