Maeve’s room refresh has been underway for a couple of weeks and I’m in the final phase of getting it all together. Over the weekend I moved her crib in and every time I go to put her down for a nap she says “I sleep in Kellan’s room!” Little lady is confused but it’s all working out.
The updates I made to this room were not anything major but they all made such a big difference. As our smallest of the four bedrooms we have, this room is just best suited for a nursery / toddler room. The crib fits in there nicely and I’m so happy I made the swap.
I still have a few things to finish including a small gallery wall and refinishing her dresser that is currently in storage. I’ll have to wait for some warmer weather to strip the dresser, so I brought in Charlotte’s old dollhouse for now and it’s been the perfect placeholder.
I’m sharing some of my favorite details that make this room really special. Since it is a small space that is mostly white, it was important to pay attention to the details to make it nice and cozy. All sources will be linked at the end!
I have been dreaming about doing a full wall of picture frame molding in this room for years, but the only saw I currently own is a hack saw. I stumbled across a way to create it without power tools and it was SO simple. I used PVC screen trim from Home Depot and these miter shears and the whole wall took me just a few hours to complete. I’ll share more details on that process in another post. However simple it is, I think it makes a huge statement!
Vintage Inspired Closet Knobs
I was looking at the space and the standard knobs on her closet doors stood out like a sore thumb. I found these knobs on Amazon and just knew the tiny detail would make such a big difference. I am in love! This may be a domino effect and cause me to be swapping knobs everywhere I can. To be determined… I’ll link below a few of my favorite dummy knobs that are perfect for closet doors that only have a magnetic latch. There’s so many available in varying price ranges.
Previously I had some homemade curtains I made out of some leftover muslin fabric. They served their purpose but being there is only one window in this space, I was willing to splurge a bit on the window treatment. These linen curtains are a dream. The price tag is a bit steep if you have more than one window to do but I cannot say enough about them. I shared an easy curtain hack on Instagram to get your rod hung perfectly every time. Also put together a post of some of my favorite curtains here.
I stumbled into our local West Elm outlet the other day and fell in love with a few accent chairs they had available. While tempted to buy something new, I knew the chair we have is just fine but could use a little facelift. I’ve reupholstered my fair share of chairs in the past so I felt pretty confident I could make it work. I ordered this boucle fabric from Etsy and I’m so happy with the result.
