With mixed emotions we bought our 2 year old daughter a big girl bed. She was ready... her mom was not. It feels like yesterday we were setting up her nursery and waiting for her arrival. When designing her nursery I wanted to create a space that would grow with her. All I had to do was buy a headboard and bedding and her room was instantly transformed to her "big girl room". Not only easy , but it also helped me with the transition. Her room still looked the same and that was comforting to a mom who is not ready to part with a room that has such strong sentimental meaning.

After pictuers of her BIG GIRL ROOM!
Can you tell she is obsessed with her ballet class! :)
Below is a shopping list for her big girl room. The bedding and headboard for her big girl bed are seen below. Some items are alternatives due to the fact that the those items are not longer available since creating her nursery 2 years ago. The Serena and Lily fabric for the bumpers and pillows are no longer available. My father made the wooden rocking horse, and all of the wooden furniture was found at antique shops and used furniture stores and painted white.
