From crib to shabby chic big girl bed

We interrupt our scheduled half bath makeover to present to you Lizzie’s big girl bed! Lizzie is turning 3 this week so it only seemed time to finally upgrade her bedroom. When we moved into this house last year we just simply transferred everything from her first nursery to her current room.

owl decor I loved the colors of her nursery as well as the artwork, so I decided to throw in  a little bit of pink and try to pull off a shabby chic look. And here is her new bed all done!

red shabby chic headboard I fell in love with Land of Nod’s Jenny Lind bed but the $700 price tag was out of reach for us. Luckily I found this white Jenny Lind headboard from Target which I scored for $130 shipped. I simply painted it with red spray paint.

3d butterflies The butterflies were from Lizzie’s original nursery but sort of got lost on the larger walls of her current bedroom. I decided to frame them in a grouping of frames above her bed to give them more prominence. The frames were a recycle from my in-laws so this little installation was free!

shabby chic bedroom The side table was originally from our master bedroom and was black. I have new plans for the master bedroom and the table was simply screaming shabby chic anyways, so Lizzie’s room seemed like the perfect place for it. I used left over paint to give it a two toned white and pink paint job, so this little project was also free.
