When we moved into our condo in April, 2017, I was SO excited to have a den that I could put my desk in. Not a desk to do work at, a makeup desk! Oh my collection was insane. I had every palette, every lipstick, every new makeup product imaginable! It was my hobby, my passion. Here’s a picture of it set up.
Fast forward to January 2018, WE’RE PREGNANT! I knew deep down that I would have to make my beloved “makeup room” into our baby’s nursery. I wanted to wait until I knew if we were having a girl or boy to start decorating. In the meantime, I was on pinterest day and night getting ideas.
We bought the crib from ikea. It’s nice because it has 2 levels for baby and then changes to a toddler bed when she’s ready. We didn’t want to spend a ton on a changing table that wouldn’t grow with her as she got older, so we also bought her dresser from ikea and put the changing pad on top of it.
If you read my post about my dining room makeover, I stained the table we got from Ikea the same color as Mackenzie’s dresser.
After staining it, I wasn’t sure if I wanted matte black drawer pulls or long brass handles. I ended up with the handles. I saw them on pinterest and that person used them from etsy. They ran her about $200+ for 6 handles. I found them way cheaper on amazon!
They are so well made and give the dresser the exact look I was going for.
After the furniture was put together, it was time to decorate the wall. I found beautiful 3D flowers at Hobby Lobby, along with her Initials. It makes this small room so cozy and girly.
I’m not sure how long we will be living in this condo or if Mackenzie will ever even sleep in her room because our bedroom is on the opposite side of the condo. But the decor will definitely follow us to our new home, wherever that may be.
I’ll add a few other pictures of DIY things I made that I may do a quick post about in the future.
Thanks for reading!
See you soon,
