Today, we move onto the next room in our Brooklyn apartment tour. These ‘first peeks’ are to show you all where we were upon moving in and what we were working with. I do intend to do much more to the rooms and Maeve’s bedroom is one of the main spaces I intend to spice up more. It’s pretty sparse!
The room itself is a really wonderful size. There is enough room for her stuff and for her to also play in there. That may sound like a strange statement, but some bedrooms I saw were barely large enough for a crib and a changing table.
I brought a few pieces from her Ohio bedroom – the rug, the drapes, the glider, and the footstool. Everything else is new. We bought a new crib so that we could still travel back home and have a bed for her in her old room. The new crib is a cheap one from Ikea, but it’s actually been really amazing.
An ottoman in the corner of her room was a new purchase as well. It was originally in the living room, but when I put up the christmas tree, I relocated it to Maeve’s room. Now, it’s where she sits when she’s in time out, so I guess it’s staying in there. The ottoman unfolds into a twin bed, which is nice for the solo guest.
I bought the same cheap blackout blinds here that I did in the master and here they’ve also been wonderful. I would really prefer a natural grass shade, but this works for the time being.
I also bought the same dresser (but the wider version) as in her Ohio bedroom. I intend still to paint it white and get some cool pulls. Right now, however, she can’t open the drawers, so I’ll leave it that way!
I also notice that there is a plastic play orange peeking out from under the dresser!
The room has been wonderful. I am typically not a fan of carpet, but after all of our new plush carpet in the Ohio house, I am missing it a little here. It’s nice to be able to lay, wrestle, and roll around on the floor without bonking a head.
In this room, I plan to add a little more eclectic color and some wall art. I’ll keep you in the loop as I make those decisions and show you where my head’s at!
Have a great week! Come by again next week for the last post on the house tour – the kitchen and bath.
