Nursery to Big Boy Room

In an effort to distract my troubled mind I've thrown myself into projects this week. 

Cupboards are being emptied, walls are getting painted, clutter is being sorted, further plans are being made and the house looks like an enormous pile of rubbish has been dumped right on top of our busy household.

The boys' sleeping situation is also being reassessed and it occurred to me that I haven't really shared (except on Instagram) the changes we've made to Rohan's room this year.

I had fun trawling through the photo archives and remembering what the room looked like two and a half years ago. So, let's travel back to his blissful, calming nursery. *insert magical time travel music here*

There are were so many things I loved about this room. The gallery wall - with the chalk drawing of a giraffe that Liam did for his brother, the mobile I made by revamping the one we had for Hamish, the soft blue accents that featured throughout the room and the incredible patchwork quilt my Mum made.

I made bunting to match the quilt...
and set up my favourite chair for feeding babies in...

Remember when I made the bookcase rainbow coloured? It was such a relaxing space to be in.

Then, when it came time to move him out of the cot we decided to start with a mattress on the floor, give him time to get used to it and then find the perfect big boy bed.

I chose this gorgeous new Adairs bedding to continue that soft blue but transition the mood to suit an energetic three year old. The "To the moon and back" cushion and letter bunting are from Cotton On Kids Room.
Although, I think the Ikea shelving with that adorable Little Rosie and Me pom pom garland are my favourite part...

So far the new bed has been great for jumping on and cuddling brothers on...

I also got a bit distracted looking at old photos. Can we take a moment to appreciate the wonder that is 18 month old Rohan with his first-curl, fairy floss hair and chicken-drumstick thighs. *Sigh*
 
On a personal note, a thousand "thank you"s to everyone who has sent such kind words and messages to me. It meant so much to feel so much love from this incredible online community of mine. Healing is happening.
