A New Room For Bean

Since returning to work full time, it feels like a lifetime since I have found a moment to think, much less put pen to paper (or fingers to keys). This week I am working on moving my baby girl into her very own big girl room and the realization that she is growing up so fast (and that I have done an awful job of capturing those moments on paper) have made me take pause and recommit to recording these moments. 

To be quite honest, an alarming squeak escaped my lips when I saw where my blog left off, after all, 9 months ago, my baby was a baby. Today she a walking, talking 2 year old, hurtling towards adolescence.

Fast forward to today and my thoughts are consumed with plans for her “Big Girl Room”. Once I get a design idea in my head, there is no letting go. Therefore, much to my husband’s chagrin, this weekend will be filled with one project after another in an attempt to get her new room wrapped up. Admittedly, I don’t know if I am more excited to give her a new room or to claim her old room as my closet overflow, all I know if that I am determined to make some progress. 

After a LOT of time on Pinterest (Follow Me) I have fallen in love with the idea of a grey and pink room that can grow with her and be girly while not being too girly. These are a few of the inspiration rooms that have made me swoon!

I love everything from the rag rugs to that gorgeous ottoman.

That mirror almost made my heart stop…hand to God!

This ceiling!! I must admit that when I showed the hubby this, he immediately muttered “Damn You Pinterest”!!

Weeks later, I have not been able to get it out of my mind so I wouldn’t be surprised if this ends up being a part of Bean’s new room.  I have already started crafting and scheming to get this wonderful luxe look on a canned tuna budget so stay tuned for a barrage of progress photos and tutorials!
