In today’s blog post I’m talking all about my daughter’s bedroom transition
from a little girl room to a big girl room.
Makeover From Little Girl Room To Big Girl Room
My daughter’s room
makeover from little girl room to big girl room
is finally done!
Excited to share her new room with you here today.
Back in March I posted the “befores”, the sweet little girls room I lovingly put together for my baby girl on her second birthday.
As you can see, we never did the whole toddler bed transition but went straight to a new bed for her, in the form of a large full-sized bed.
This big change is not as crazy as it sounds, we did use side bumpers for the first few months on her big bed, and now she has a bed which will last her into her high school years!
We did consider going with the popular Pottery Barn bunk beds but eventually decided it was not a good idea for her room because we weren’t sure we had enough space.
This type of big kid bed made the most sense for our family, as it’s a great way to get the most mileage out of kids rooms.
A larger mattress might be the best way to go, especially if you might need the room to do double duty as guest room.
We did the same thing for our other two kid’s room and it all worked out fine!
My son did get a twin bed first, but we switched him to a bigger bed with a hidden trundle bed, when we moved to our new house a couple of years ago.
Now that my daughter is almost twelve, this new grown up version seems much more appropriate, despite the fact that seeing her old room here (below) still gets me emotional!
Big Girl Bedroom Ideas
We’re both thrilled with the way it came out.
The entire process was a lot of fun and now the room really does reflect my child’s personality and the fact she’s entering her teenage years so much.
I re-posted the inspiration room below -it was a big help, especially when it came to choosing a color palette.
Finding ideas online that you and your child can agree can be a great help.
Pinterest can be a great resource for this.
The inspiration room -a personal favorite.
Also, below are all the sources…everything we used in this transformation except the custom headboard which is from Ethan Allen, was ordered online!
Hope you found some helpful ideas from my daughter’s before and afters and this room reveal!
