Big Girl Room Reveal

After leading you on for months I finally have my act together. Here is the final reveal of Eleanor’s big girl room.

Big Girl Room Reveal- Full of simple and affordable ideas

We had so much fun making this special room for Eleanor. It was tough saying goodbye to her nursery.

Eleanor's Room

With baby #3 on the way, it was time. I was so nervous about her being upstairs and being in a big girl bed. It turns out all my worrying was for nothing. Isn’t that how it goes for us moms? She loves her big girl room, spends hours destroying playing in it. We made the move well before baby came. We didn’t want her to have any hard feelings about her room or her crib being taken over. Baby #3 has been here 7 weeks and I am finally getting around to sharing Eleanor’s big girl room. We have been a bit busy around here.

I have kept you in the loop on the whole process, from the planning to the prep and every project along the way. Check it all out: the prepping, the reading nook, the low down on the reading nook, everything you need to know about carpet tiles, how the room was inspired, the hardwarethe bedding, and the DIY magnet board.

I don’t know about you, but I love seeing a space transform. The best part is, this space represents my daughter in so many ways. Her obsession with letters (DIY magnet board), and books and hiding away in small spaces (reading nook) and coloring (chalkboard door). The fruit are a play off of the art that hung in her nursery. Every morning we would wake up to her sweet voice saying, “apple, pear, apple”.  At nap time when I tuck her in, the light streams through the curtains and she points at them and says, “look mom, beautiful flowers”. In case you couldn’t tell, I am head over heels for this little girl. She turned two on mother’s day and is a little sponge. She is soaking up everything and every.single.day she blows me away with her brilliance. It was an honor to make this space for her.

Any of you transforming a space? Have a space you are itching to get your hands on? I’m dying to makeover our front porch, just waiting for money to show up. Isn’t that always the case?

Hi, I'm Megan--the crazy mom of three behind this blog. Please don't be intimidated by the name. Note it doesn't say BALANCED Home. We hardly have it all together, but together we have it all. Or at least that is what I tell myself. I love rearranging, decorating, creating, crafting, celebrations, family, and holidays. I share a little bit of all of that and more on Balancing Home. I am married to my college sweetheart (Is that a thing? Well now it is.) and he is a very talented designer. I use him for his skills so I can offer up sweet printables to all of you. If you want to learn more randomness about me or my blog, stop by my about page.

    Absolutely beautiful! I love that it is not super young so it will grow with her for years to come. The wall color is perfect.

    What a beautiful room. It is an inspiration to see the transformation and even gave me some ideas for my little girl’s room. I want to see if I can find the book shelves for her. And she would love the chalkboard door…

      Thanks a bunch for your kind words. You are right about big/little- she may not be in a crib anymore, but she is still my little girl.

    I found you via Pinterest and I have to tell you, you have an AMAZING sense of style! This bedroom is just absolutely beautiful. Of course, now I`ll have to go check out the rest of your house ;) Your little lady is such a lucky girl. I would LOVE to hear what you`d do with a boys room, my little guy is turning five and I am completely clueless!
