Lucy’s Nursery Revealed
Looking back at my posts over the year, I realised that I never blogged about Lucy’s completed bedroom. It all took a little longer than expected, as we had to build an extension to the house in order to put the older girls in together. And then I couldn’t bear the thought of Lucy moving out of our bedroom, so her bedroom refurbish took place over many many months.
For a good while, her bedroom was used as a storeroom so it looked like this:
It had originally been Maddy’s room, which explains the cot and overall “pinkness”.
Finally we cleared out the room, removed the furniture, wall stickers (except a couple for sentimental reasons) and curtains.
The first step of the refurbish was new wall stickers. I found this one on Etsy. It was a little bigger than I expected (yes they do give measurements lol), but now I love it. It has changed the whole wall! It was quite a job to put it up. Every single flower comes individually.
So with a little help, we sorted them all into sizes.
And then assembled the trunk.
And now it looks just like this:
The change table is a Boori Matilda Changer, and I have used Ikea storage baskets and Kidsline baskets to organise it. There is plenty of room on the shelves!
The chest of drawers is from the IKEA Malm range, and I have added Kidsline drawer knobs.
The Stokke Sleepi Cot is one of my all-time favourite baby buys. It is narrow enough that it can be moved easily between rooms, and it was beside our bed when Lucy was with us. It can also be extended into a bed, so will last for many years.
The bookcase is from the IKEA Hemnes range. It’s huge which means we can store plenty in it, including the Nappy Bags down the bottom (Il Tutto Nico, and Il Tutto Mia). We also store books and soft toys at her level so she can play with them easily. The IKEA Storage boxes up the top hold her birthday cards, hospital keepsakes and medical record book.
So it took some time to get there, but Lucy finally has her very own bedroom, filled with all her favourite things.
