C&C Around the House

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I've recently made some changes in the Mini Fashionista's room. She has been in a toddler bed since she was 16 months old, and while it was still a great bed for her to sleep in, it wasn't quite big enough for family story time or middle of the night wake ups. We have a pretty strict rule in our house that the Mini does NOT sleep in our bed. In fact, I can count the number of times she has on one hand. For that reason, there are times when I have had to stay in her bed with her in the middle of the night to get her to fall back asleep. Two months ago, after spending an hour in her bed in the middle of the night, I decided it was time for a big bed. If not for her, then for me!

You may remember what the Mini's room looked like, but if not, here is a photo from the post I did before she was born. Quite ironically, it was exactly three years ago (post here). Where does the time go?

We have actually made a number of changes to the room in the last three years. The rug has been replaced (it shed like a Golden Retriever), the crib became a toddler bed, the room has been filled with toys and books and the wall decals are gone. The Mini Fashionista found removing them to be a great form of entertainment during her naps. So much for hours of hard work to place them. 

After the removal of the wall decals, we had two maps framed by Christopher David (the same store that helped with my bedroom picture wall). We hope to share our love for travel with the Mini, so these maps serve both form and function. 

Here is the room before the arrival of the new bed! As a side note...if anyone is interested in buying the toddler bed/crib sheet set, I'm getting ready to sell it at a consignment sale for $35 (sheet, pillowcase, duvet cover and crib/bed skirt).  It's custom made Amy Butler fabric and in great shape. You can email

Here it is after!

The bed is from Room & Board (The Piper Bed) and is red with a powder coated finish. The wood is a maple veneer. The sheets are from Garnet Hill (Dot to Dot Percale Bedding). If you are looking for nice, well priced sheets, I highly suggest checking out their site.

Do you think she likes it?
