Little Miss’s Bedroom Reveal

I am so very excited for this day.  We have been planning and preparing Little Miss’s room since before Christmas, and since her arrival is just weeks away (I can’t believe I’m writing that), it became crunch time to get the room finished.  If you are new here, let me give just a two sentence summary of what this is all about.  My husband and I started the process to adopt a child from Thailand over two years ago.  We were matched with a little girl last summer, and we will be flying to meet her and bring her home in late April or early May.  This post is heavy on the photos, so grab a cup of coffee, and take a look.

We decided to go with a pink room, and I loved the color Candy Floss by Behr. We are so happy with how feminine and playful it is.

Little Miss will be 20 months old when she comes home, and we opted to go with a daybed rather than a crib.  We will use a bed rail for safety.

We wanted to have a safari theme of sorts, and when we saw the whimsical animals displayed with the floral bedspread, we knew it would be perfect for our girl’s room.

Toddler girl's bedroom - The 2 Seasons

When I was a little girl, and my mom transformed my nursery to my “big-girl’s room”, she used beautiful curtains and a bedspread from Country Curtains.  My grandmother is still using that same bedroom in her guest room, and it is in perfect condition.  So, you can imagine how thrilled we were when Country Curtains reached out to us and offered some of their beautiful curtains for our little girl’s room.  We selected these classic ball fringe beauties because they are so feminine, light, and airy. I couldn’t stop saying how much I loved them as Yankee was busy hanging them for me.

The glass finials go well with the chandelier we selected.  They are just the right finishing touch for the room.

The room is not very wide, and this narrow cabinet fits into the space perfectly.  The drawers drop down, and we will store pajamas, socks, etc. in it.

We thought it would be fun to do a sparkling chandelier.  I knew from day one I wanted to do  a chandelier . As she gets older I can remove the hearts and make this light grow with her.  It sparkles and catches the sun, and we can’t wait for her to see it.

The elephant wasn’t quite big enough for the wall, so, I bought a large canvas, painted it yellow, and attached the elephant painting to it.  Now the space is filled nicely.

We are buying colorful wooden toys for her, and the soft rug will be a great place to play with them.

This wicker night stand was in my room when I was little.  I gave it a fresh coat of paint, and it’s as good as new.

This Ikea shelf is the other night stand.  It will be great for her books.

 

So, now all we have to do is wait.  That will be the hardest part, but soon our little lady will be home with us where she belongs.

Cheers!

 

Country Curtains provided the curtains, but the opinions are ours.

    I’m so excited to meet Little Miss through your blog and to share your thrilling journey into motherhood and grandmotherhood! My 4 1/2 yo granddaughter has the same Ikea daybed and it has been a great sturdy bed with wonderful storage-it has eliminated the need for a dresser altogether! The 3 drawers for folded items and her small closet for dresses provide a very efficient use of space. She is a VERY lucky child to come into such a loving family. God bless you all!

    Love every minute detail of this playful, charming and sophisticated room. How wonderful, I can feel your excitement! Thrilled for your family.

      Cheers.

    So excited for all of you! What a precious room! Every detail is just perfect and such a warm, welcoming environment for your new arrival!
    I love the colors, and the map dress is beyond clever…what a wonderful life that is soon to be even better!

      Cheers

    It has been a very long process and you and your husband have handled it all so admirably. Congratulations on the upcoming Coming Home for your daughter. Blessings to all of you!

    Such a sweet room! You have a perfect room…right down to the sweet hair Bows! And the map dress is so special. I need one for Kentucky! Ha! Safe travels and my blessings as you enter a new chapter of life. Sheila

      Sheila,

      Little Miss has so much hair and I can’t wait to get a bow in her hair. We shall see if she likes wearing them…

      The Etsy artist that made the made dress specifically did Thailand since that was relevant to our little lady. I am sure she could do a Kentucky one, which would be really cool. She makes more than map dresses.

      Cheers

    What a lovely room to welcome her to her new life. I can only imagine how excited you must be. Best wishes for all!

  8. Pondside says

    I know this particular excitement well, having prepared rooms with all the hope and excitement that you are experiencing. I don’t think anyone understands the miracle of parenthood in quite the same way that an adoptive parent does. We take nothing for granted. It is such a precious gift. It is lovely to see how you are savoring every moment.

      Marianne,

      I found the elephant print at HomeGoods. It was less than a month ago so they might have one if there is a store close to you.
      Cheers

      Amy,

      The rug is from RugsUSA.com It was very reasonable, heads up lots of shedding in the beginning but very soft.

      Cheers

      We love the map dress and the Etsy artist was so sweet and picked a map of Thailand to use for our daughter.

      Cheers

    Your little girl’s room is absolutely charming. Those are the identical curtains I had in my bedroom growing up. I love them. I am so excited for your family.

      Kim,

      Thank you for the kind words and excitement. Now that the room is ready this has been the hardest part of the wait. I have to keep telling myself she will be here before I know it.

      Cheers!

    What a perfect room for your little one! I can feel all of the love that went into it. I hope she will know how blessed she is to have you for her parents and grandparents. My favorite things in the room are the framed Thailand map dress, the curtains and the chandelier. Awesome job!!!
