Makenna's Big Girl Room

Makenna has officially moved into her Big Girl Room!! She has been taking her naps in there for a few weeks now and has started sleeping in there at night now too. This transition for Makenna hasn't been as rough as some others. Lets hope that the transition to becoming a big sister goes smoothly as well.

As for the actual room, I have really enjoyed decorating it. I got the inspiration for the colors from the combination of a baby blanket, a home show house, and pottery barn.

Here is a before and after shot of Makenna's big girl room.



Here are a few close up pictures of some of my favorite things from the room.

This is an old barn window from Jared's parent's farm. I just repainted it and added the pictures.

Makenna's blanket was made by Jared's cousin's wife, Dorothy. She did an amazing job! I think it looks perfect in the room. And her bed was used first by my mom and her siblings, then passed down to my sister and I, and now on to Makenna.

I made these based on the picture from pottery barn. They were very simple and quick to make.

I still have a few finishing touches to take care of but for the most part the room is done. Yipee!

I came across your blog from one of my friends and I absolutely love the artwork you made. They would match my nursery perfectly. Would you ever be willing to make more for sale? Thanks!
