Lillian Annabel's Big Girl Room

So, I FINALLY took some photos of Lillie's room yesterday. It still isn't completely finished. I need to hang something above her bed. I have a few ideas but can't decide. And my sister Jamie is making her a gray ruffled pillow for her bed and I want to slowly change out a lot of the accessories to things that aren't quite a "baby" looking but will probably be doing all of that gradually over the next couple of months. Once I do get everything finished I will take some more photos. For now, though, the only real changes in her room are the wall color - we went from a pale pink called Melted Ice Cream from Benjamin Moore to a gray called London Fog, also from Benjamin Moore, and her big girl bed! I was sad to see her crib go, but seeing how we will be pulling it back out after Christmas and start working on changing our guest room into a nursery, I guess I won't have to miss it for long! She was quite excited to get her big bed. We got it for $75 at a local antique store/consignment shop! I was so excited. I had several inspiration pictures in mind (I showed you all a few of them in a post a while back) and there were some beds that I had completely fallen in love with at Pottery Barn Kids and Restoration Hardware Baby and Child but they were WAY out of my budget. It isn't nearly as nice as the beds I had been eyeing (it required several trips to Lowe's and a paint job to get it into decent shape) but it has the general look I was going for. And maybe someday I can replace it with one of the other ones. (If Jon is reading this he will probably laugh and say not a chance, this one is just fine - haha!)






The bear was mine when I was little!

A pair of Lillie's baby booties.





The Fairyland Quote is in the frame.

A little tea set that Jon got Lillie for her first Christmas when she was just 3 weeks old!

We found this little chair and desk this summer while we were out antiquing in New Hampshire. The desk was actually a little side table that I had my dad cut down to fit the chair to make a little desk for Lillie. Everyone wants me to paint the chair but I like how beat up and rustic it looks.

One of the main things I want to start doing in her room is to slowly change out some of the pink for more gray. Here is the blanket Jamie made for the end of Lillie's bed and she is working on making her a long matching pillow which I will use instead of one of the pink ones.

Oh and I was planning on taking a few shots of Lillie all snuggled up on her new bed but this is what she did when I tried to take her picture!


Well, that is it for now.
Don't forget you still have today and tomorrow to enter our Tutu Giveaway!

And I am already getting really low on several of the sizes for the Fairyland Thermal Shirt from the last post so if you want one I would recommend ordering it soon. I probably won't have more ready for at least a couple more weeks.

Have a wonderful rest of the week!

  2. Wow, what a GORGEOUS room! You did such a beautiful job on everything. What a blessed little girl Lillie is! :-) I love how you made her room something that she can grow into, with a style and colors that she can enjoy for years.

  5. I turned out great! Thanks for sharing with us. I'm so glad you didn't paint the little chair--it's perfect! You may want to consider a polyurethane coat though to protect the precious little Lily (if the paint is really old, it could have lead in it!).

    Warmly, Michelle

  6. Is it sick to say that I am jealous of Lillabel's room... :) I love all of it! The bed is perfect. Love the blanket, Jamie! Can't wait to see it in person in a few days :)
    Love ya!

  8. A) Just wait until Lillie tries to make her own bed... Not going to be taking any photos of that.
    B) That chair is lethal.
    C) Four more days...

  9. Thanks, everyone! (Except Jason - not to worry I will be training Lillie to make her bed perfectly. Although every July when she spends the month next to your room she will probably regress horribly...
    And hopefully the chair isn't as lethal as the poor highchair probably was - haha! And yes - four more days until you see her and three more until destruction hits Moose Mountain!)

  16. Her room is so perfectly girlie. I love all the personal touches you decorated with like the bear and the tea set. Her personality shines through on here, she is so cute even covered up under the blanket, LOL, that is something one of my boys would have done (;

  17. Okay, I have some serious room envy right now! ADORABLE. I would sleep in that room in a heartbeat! I'll have to keep my little girl away from these pictures - her big girl room is a mattress on the floor and a bookcase right now . . .

  18. I love her room! It is perfect for your little princess! And you are right on about that chair - leave it as is. Feels lived in that way. You did a fantastic job!! :)

  19. Beautiful! I love that you used grey on the walls. WE just painted our dining room grey and are loving it. The living and hallway are getting the same treatment. What little girl wouldn't want a room like this?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Darling room for a beautiful little girl. Just joined your blog and I find it very creative and inspiring. You do beautiful work.

  21. SO in love with lillie's room!! You ladies are amazing with your decorating! What a cutie she is under the covers. : )

  22. I love the hits of pink set against the grey & white. it's not overwhelming. it's chic and grown up at the same time being sweet and innocent. I LOVE the chippy chair against all of the more finished surfaces. I am so glad you included the last photo of Lilly.......being Lilly!

  23. I just love it so much. Kids rooms are not my gifting. they're super plain jane and never quite how I want them to look. I've even tried to spruce them up and they're still not good. I just do do a good kids room. Yours is quite lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  24. it's supposed to say I just don't do a good kids room.

  25. WOW! I am thinking any little girl would die to have a room like Lillie's! Amazing job!! (And the picture of her hiding is too adorable! ;-)

  27. Hey, I LOVE the paint color. What is the name of it and what brand? Where did you get the gray throw? It's so adorable. You did a great job :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thanks so much, Everyone! Anonymous - as mentioned in the post, it is London Fog from Benjamin Moore. I think you would really like it. It is such a nice, soft gray!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh and my sister, Jamie made the gray throw.

  30. I love her room! It looks great! Did you make that cute pink flower ball decoration on her shelf? I love it! {I have little girls am always looking for cute ideas to decorate their rooms}. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thanks, JoLynn! One of my sisters made her the pink flower ball - it is made from a bunch of rosettes glue gunned onto a styrophome ball!

  32. Can you tell me where you got Lillie's bedding? I am looking for some inexpensive white bedding for my daughter. Thanks ! -amy

    ReplyDelete
  33. The coverlet and shams are from Bed Bath and Beyond. I wanted something really inexpensive and looked EVERYWHERE and that was the cheapest place I could find a basic white set. I got similar bedding for our master bedroom a couple of years before and got some great deals at JCPenney. Target also has some gorgeous Shabby Chic white stuff but it is a bit more expensive.

  34. I love love love that gray blanket at the end of her bed. Do you ever have those for sale in your shop? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thanks. No, we didn't ever sell any of those blankets in our shop.

  36. Just found your blog on the tour of homes and just in time! I'm moving in a few months and starting over on decorating my girls' rooms (3 girls and 1 boy). I'll definitely be returning here for inspiration.

    Where did you get the chandelier? My oldest is gaga over it!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thanks, Heather. The chandelier is from Restoration Hardware Baby and Child and was a gift from my parent's when we were pregnant with Lillie! I love it as much now as when we first got it. I think it is called the "Remy" chandelier.
