Our House: Jane's Room

Girl's Room with Vintage Jenny Lind Bed

I spilled the beans on Instagram, but in case you haven't heard: We are expecting baby #3! I am 20 weeks along with a due date in late September. First trimester absolutely wore me out, which is the main reason I took a break from blogging. :) But I am feeling so much better these days, praise God!

I shared in our House Goals post that we plan to move the girls into a shared room, and this is the reason why. Our home has three bedrooms, so the girls will share to make a spot for the baby. (We will find out if the new baby is a boy or girl in a few weeks.)

So now that I have some energy back, I'm planning the girls' room with a little more urgency and realized I never shared all the pictures of Jane's room here on the blog. I took these photos last fall for my Design Mom post/interview, but everything is about to change. Even though her room was set up knowing it wouldn't last that way for long, I really love it. And it's amazing how young she looks in these photos!

The doll crib was mine when I was little—a gift from my grandparents. The teak chair was one of my first vintage purchases when we were newly married. I sewed the pillow with DwellStudio fabric.

I love repurposing party decorations as everyday decor. It is budget friendly and what is more cheerful than party decorations?!? The raindrops and cloud above the bed were a DIY project I made for Kate's first birthday. (Instructions here!) When it came time to take them down, I just couldn't pack them away, so I found a new spot for them and enjoyed them longer. And the tassel banner was for Jane's second birthday. I made that during naptime and I just love it.

I am still debating whether to put the girls in this room or bring Jane back into the nursery. I love the look of matching twin beds with the headboards against the wall, but with the girls so young, I think it makes sense to have the bed against the wall like we do with Jane's. And this room is tricky for that because there are so many doors and windows! The beds would fit nicely into the nursery, I think. Here's the moodboard I created a while back to get my mind going. One of my biggest needs is a nice dresser with drawers that open easily. Girls like clothes, you know. :)
