Setting up my daughter’s nursery was a dream come true. After spending the last ten years as a “boy mom” I finally was getting to decorate with pink! I know it doesn’t seem like that big a deal but for a girlie girl like myself, I was pretty excited. Being the huge Disney fans that we are there was no question what the nursery theme would be – pink and Princess. Setting up her nursery was so much fun but since her room is the smallest in the house, I really needed to make the space work for us storage wise all while sticking to a budget.
The biggest area for concern was the closet. It’s a decent sized closet but the previous owners installed sliding doors on it that didn’t exactly fit. They were a standard sized door when this closet needed custom, smaller doors. So that made it difficult to access the space and use it to our advantage. When you slid the doors open it made it difficult to access the center of the closet and use that space. So they had to go. Now that she’s getting bigger, I wanted to make it a fun and useful space. Something that can grow with her and not need updating every few months.
Once we removed the doors, I purchased a closet organizer with a shelf system in the middle and poles for the clothes on the side. That left me with one side of the closet open – perfect for a princess dressing area. Instead of putting doors back up, I hung the same ruffle curtains I have on her windows to close it off when I need to.
This closet makeover definitely made the area more functional and useful. Prior to this I just used it for storage because it was too hard to get her things in and out. Now with her closet project underway I knew I wanted to update her bedding. I really liked her pink bedding we were using, but really wanted to tie in the princess theme a bit more.
So when I found this beautiful Cinderella Crib Set from Walmart, I knew it was perfect! The colors would match her room perfectly and I wouldn’t have to repaint anything, I just needed to update her bedding for a complete new look.
I grabbed this beautiful hot pink mirror to hang in her closet as well.
Once the closet shelving was in, it was just a matter of hanging the mirror and setting up the shelves with her stuff. The shelves are great for storage of her little purses, shoes and other princess accessories she will soon accumulate.
It also helps that she loves Cinderella and everything princess so I knew she would love it. Can’t you tell by this picture? She is in love with her new bedding and I love how her room came together perfectly. The entire room makeover, including her new bedding and closet, only cost me $110.
Now that I’ve shown you my Disney Baby nursery update, how would you update yours?
