All the heavy lifting is done. Paint is up, curtains are sewn, a few muscles are sore, and we’ve got one happy kid.

There are a few details to tackle, but for now lets take a look at how it went! We got a peek at the closet yesterday, but here’s a little refresher…

Here is the “we’re getting there” after…

Next was to tackle the Pepto-Bismal pink. You can see the new deeper pink along the trim. Benjamin Moore Pink Blossom. A few shades deeper makes all the difference.

That’s more like it! Very fresh.

The new pink looks great with the Benjamin Moore “Barnboard”. But I have to admit, even though I knew it would be great… this stage scared me a little. Oh, it looked so bad seeing the new paint trim up against the old pink! There’s the lesson: have faith in your vision!


After 2 coats of paint, it was all coming together. The new light fixture isn’t too shabby either.

Then, the best part… taking care of this window! It was in need of some personality. The black-out shade wasn’t doing it.


The new curtains look great up against the Barnboard colour.

Joel Dewberry curtains and DIY Kid Teepee

I used Joel Dewberry’s Dogwood Bloom from the Modern Meadow Collection from Quilt Home.

All that’s left to do is figure out Kiddos’s wall art. We’ve got a couple things to frame, and a couple things to make. I’m excited to see it all come together, but for the time being… She seems happy…


**UPDATE** The Kiddo  helped me hang her mirror, and a few pieces of art. And, of course this will keep evolving but… the to-do list is getting much shorter!! Now we only have the closet nook to finish, and upgrading the toddler bed for a twin bed. (I pinned my favourite choice so far).

Benjamin Moore barnboard paint for Toddler room

We snagged the pink frame from Target for $10, the mirror was a past project from a $2 thrift store find, the large piece was from her grandpa, brought back from his travels.  And the “O” was a gift, purchased from the Anthropolgie Pinwale Alphabet.

That cute elephant clock was from Superstore, I purchased the fox illustration for the Kiddos’s nursery from Berkley Illustration. And the owl perched on a branch, came from Bouclair.

And, my most favourite addition? The toy hot air balloon we found for little Miss while in Paris. Gooooooood memories.
