If you're just tuning in today, this is part two of Sisters' Room Makeover with The Land of Nod. My husband and I are in the midst of the ongoing process of making our early 1900s Virginia farmhouse a home, and you can read part one of Sisters' Room Makeover here. Today, I'm sharing the AFTER photos of their sweet little room. Because the room is so tiny (about 8' x 9'), I wanted to keep it very simple and bright! I love vintage and I'm a border-line hoarder...so I tried hard to keep the room minimal while incorporating vintage here and there, and pops of color for the girls.
We didn't need to do very much to the room. First, we emptied it. It had become a literal junk room full of baby + kid things, with a pathway to Zoe's crib. Then we painted the walls and the trim. Next we packed up the paint supplies and washed the floor. The most fun part was putting the room together - building Zoe's new toddler bed, setting up the Moses basket, arranging collected artwork on the walls, building the shelf, making the felt garland.
We tackled two very simple DIYs for the girls' room. First was a wooden wall shelf, made by Joe in just an hour or so. We found some very old floor boards in our garage, left there by the original owner. So, he simply cut a board to the correct length and hung it using L-brackets. Couldn't get any easier! The second DIY was the felt garland. I wanted something festive, but wanted to keep it muted. So, I picked out some neutral felt colors, cut a bunch of half-moons, and hand-stitched them all together with wool yarn. My mom and I sat at the dining room table during one of Zoe's aftenroon naps and sewed; she modified Ikea curtains and I made the garland.
Seeing it come together, and not just a random collection of ideas in my head and on pinterest, was incredibly rewarding and satisfying! Excited for the rest of our house-to-home process (which we'll be sharing over the next year or so)!
My gracious mom spent a few days with us; she helped with the impossible task of choosing the paint colors, painting the room, and making curtains. She also spent hours watching Zoe, cleaning, and cooking. I'm so grateful for her help and willingness to give so much of her time! And a huge thanks to The Land of Nod, who made the room makeover possible, provided the uptown toddler bed and flokati fluff rug, and gave me the motivation necessary to complete this room!
