I have partnered with Raymour & Flanigan for this post. All expressed opinions are 100% my own. Full disclosure.
making the switch from the master to the smaller room so that Hazel and Owen could have a larger space. They have been sharing this small room since Owen was about a year old. It was getting really cramped with cribs, a dresser, stuffed animals, toys, etc. I had been wanting to switch our rooms for a long time, but it took awhile to get ourselves motivated to do it since a lot of decluttering had to happen first to make the transition easier.
Since this room was almost always overtaken with toys when the kids were in here, I don't have any good "before" shots. But you can get an idea of how it was set up in this post from Christmas 2013 and when we first made it into Hazel's nursery in 2011.
And now for what it looks like today! Pretty different!
We started by painting the room flat white. No fancy color to share with you - it was literally just Sherwin Williams white ceiling paint that my husband had a ton of, and the color worked for me.
We also added inexpensive bamboo shades from Home depot (although they filter a lot of light, so curtains will be added soon!).
This is the first room in our home that I basically started with a blank slate. We previously didn't have any nice bedroom furniture and just threw together hand me downs and yard sale/flea market finds. It was really exciting to pull all of the elements in this room together and splurge on some things to make the space feel fresh and new.Angelo Queen Headboard from Raymour and Flanigan the first time I saw it on their site. When we decided to go ahead with a full bedroom makeover it was on the top of my list (right after a new mattress which we were in desperate need of). We went with a Sealy Posturepedic Hybrid Silver Plush Mattress for that and I love it.
The light fixture was left over from when the space was Hazel's nursery. I would love to update it at some point, but since the ceiling is low, it has been tricky finding something in my style that will work just yet.
On the opposite side of the bed, I kept the dresser from when my kids were in this room. The top holds my jewelry collection which I showed more details of in this post.
I also bought a couple of wooden floating shelves from Target, which I love styling! They were just the right size for this space.Ceramic Calla Stool from Raymour and Flanigan. It works as a great little side table and balances well with the lamps on the opposite side. This is the perfect little spot to sit and look out the window, read a book, or watch the kids jump on the bed (true story).
I hope you enjoyed the tour of our new bedroom. Next on my list is transforming the master bedroom into a separate boy and girl space for Hazel and Owen and making it fun and personal for each of them. Plus get those toys organized! Maybe.
