Ella's Big Girl Room

Now that Ella has finally gotten the hang of sleeping in her big girl bed (after a very long week of 2AM wake-ups...and yes I'm knocking on wood as I type this!), I thought I'd share her big girl room with you all!

Here's what the room looked like when we bought the house:

No offense if red is your favorite color, but I absolutely hate it and could not wait to paint these walls! I decided to go with Sherwin Williams Evening Shadow, which is what we painted her room in our old house as well.

So we'll start at the door...

{why hello birthday decoration from last year}

The alphabet wall! I love it so much. 
We used command strips to hold the letters on the wall, and even though they basically ripped all of the paint off (and some of the dry wall, too!) at the old house, I couldn't think of a better solution. And Ella has to have her alphabet wall! 

{I'm totally using the 3m/6m/12m, etc. dividers to now separate pajamas, sweaters, short- and long-sleeved shirts, rompers and short- and long-sleeved dresses! #ocd}

{I spy a little reader photo-bombing!}

And there you have it! 
The majority of this stuff is the same as her nursery (see that post for links), but a few new additions include:

Sheets: Target
Duvet cover: Pottery Barn Kids (no longer available; I got it when I was pregnant with Ella!)
Bed rails: Amazon
Favorite blankie: Little Giraffe (the softest!)
Rameses: UNC Student Store (this is seriously her most prized possession...girlfriend will not even think about going to bed without her "Mee-mees!")

It's also worth mentioning that since I took these pictures last week, we have also added a picture of Travis and I, this owl nightlight, this plug-in nightlight and this clock. All of these things, I'm convinced, have helped her stay in bed at night and not scream for us every 3 seconds. 

I love my sweet girl's to start decorating her brother's!


  1. I love her room, especially the alphabet wall! So cute!

  2. I love the color scheme of the room!! Too cute!

  3. I just love her big girl room! I am hoping we move soon - also need to sell our place and buy a new one - so I can get started on this project for Avery! :)
