Getting ready for a big girl room

I haven't had a lot of time to blog but came across this picture and it got me thinking about how I need to start getting ready for Paris's BIG girl room.....I am so not ready for that!
I took this picture around this time last year. I sent it with my girlfriend, Stephanie, so she could take it to Furniture Market in High Point N.C.
RACHEL ASHWELL was going to be there and Stephanie (who is a buyer for the furniture store I use to work at) was going to have Rachel sign the picture for me :O) Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy! {hint: I'm a BIG shabby chic fan!!!!!}
I had ordered Paris's baby bedding from Rachel Ashwell's online boutique right before she closed her doors {she has since reopened, yay!} So I thought how perfect it would be to have a signed pic for her room:)
I am now thinking of what to do with her room to make it into her big girl room. I've lowered her bar to her crib {to get her use to being able to get in an out of her bed} to find a bed. I had refinished (or should I say my husband) my old furniture. I want to keep that but I am in need for a bed....thinking of making her an upholstered headboard or go shopping for antique iron bed....still unsure.
My dilemma is what you see in the next picture....
You can kind of see in this picture, my french settee....I am NOT about to get rid of it and we currently only have room for it in Paris's room. It fits nicely in there with her crib, but not sure how it's going to work with a twin size bed, ah! The dilemma!!!

You can kind of see (in the background) where the crib and settee almost meet....thinking I'm going to have to go the daybed route:( Which I really don't want to! But who knows, I may find some fabulous iron antique daybed somewhere, somehow.....let the searching begin! I'll keep you guys updated:)


  1. Oh my gosh love these pictures, her room is beautiful and she is so little <3 Adorable!

  2. Ummm, yes...I agree with Mere! Paris has one beautiful room! The curtain draping has my mind filled with new ideas for nursery's absolutely gorgeous!

  3. Thank you ladies:) the hubby has since made her some shelves that go on either side of the window....will post more pics once I get her big girl room underway!:)

  4. Stevie....nursery #2?!?!? Are you expecting?!?! About to go read your blog to see if I missed something, lol!

  5. Well, I haven't gone public-public with that news yet, but yes! I always agonize over the possibility of speaking too soon, but the way I look at, the more people that know, the more people that can pray for your little babe!

  6. OMGOODNESS!!!!!!! Congratulations!!!!! Aww, Marley will soon have a baby sister or brother!!:) I will be praying that you have a good healthy pregnancy:)Hugs!

  7. Thank you, Prencie! You are so sweet! XO!
