Piper’s Big Girl Room

Big Girl Room | lovelolablog.com

I’m finally sharing Piper’s big girl room today! We took these pictures when Fields was still in my belly, and we had the best morning playing together in her room, soaking up all of our one on one time together.

With a new baby coming, we wanted to transition her to her big girl bed before his arrival. We knew we would also be potty training her and trying to quit sucking her thumb, all while becoming a new big sister, so we wanted to have the big girl bed well out of the way. Plus, we needed the crib for his nursery. We thought about doing a toddler or even a twin bed, but since our home is only 3 bedrooms her room also serves as the guest room. Since it’s the only place for guests to stay (without blow up mattresses), we went with a double bed so we could at least sleep two people. Plus, it’s a bed she can grow into well into even her teen years. The bed is from wayfair and you can find it here.

She “helped” us move the bed in and we really tried to build up the whole process, telling her what a great helper she was. We also called it her big girl bed, and made a lot of hype around that. She was so excited to show everyone who came over her “big girl bed.” Even with her initial excitement, it took about 4 nights for her to really transition and start to feel comfortable in it. She cried the first couple of nights, and it reminded me of the early days when she was learning to self soothe in her crib…so sad!

We really tried to keep everything about her routine exactly the same, with the only change being her new bed. My mother in law got her a new pillowcase that we put on her pillow, and she was surprisingly SO excited to sleep on her pillow case. Another thing that I think could help would be letting your little one pick out their new sheets and/or comforter. Now that she’s transitioned, I think she actually sleeps so much better snuggled under the covers and with a pillow. But OK, now onto the room with a billion beautiful pictures by Jessi Nichols Photography

Playroom Progress

May 16, 2018

Filed Under : Interiors - Lifestyle

Slowly but surely our playroom is coming together, and I wanted to share a little progress with you guys today! One of my favorite parts of our house is our large sunroom. For the longest time it was the dog’s space, since it was easy to put up a gate and contain him from the rest of the house when we needed. When he went to live with another family (still miss him so much!), we knew we wanted to turn the sunroom into our playroom. It is huge, so there is also a sitting space I’m working on decorating on the opposite end of the room, our laundry closet, and a separate nook that is Piper’s “kitchen.” Since there are so many separate spaces in this room, I’ve kind of been focusing on one at a time when it comes to decor.

Kitchen Renovation Reveal: Before and After

Kitchen Renovation Before and After | lovelolablog.com

I am finally sharing our finished kitchen today! It’s been a long time coming. We moved into our fixer upper almost 4 years ago, and the first project we started was the kitchen. I’m going to share some before pictures, but go ahead and brace yourself…it was bad. Looking back, I honestly don’t know how I saw so much potential in it. But I did! This room was a labor of love, many long nights and countless hours to complete it. We did it all ourselves (and by we, I mean Scofield and his dad), and there were definitely a lot of learning curves as it was our first home renovation EVER. I’m not mad it took us 4 years (well, maybe a little), because my style has definitely shifted over the years and it is now hands down a space I love. If we ever do another project like this, I think it’ll definitely go smoother…and quicker!!
