Nursery to Transportation Toddler Room

Now that my son”s crib was passed down to his baby sister, what do I do with him?  He had outgrown his turquoise and mocha beach theme nursery and was ready for a “sort of” big kid room. But since he is only 19 months he”s not ready for a toddler room yet and I”m not ready for him to crawl out of bed on his  own -so that meant another crib.

So I decided to get a convertible crib in espresso-Baby”s Dream Serenity. So soon it will convert to toddler bed and then with new rails a twin bed. Then instead of a changing table I bought a dresser.

For all his toys I needed storage. I love this 6-Cube Bookcase
in espresso filled with canvas storage bins and metal buckets all from The Land of Nod to pull all the colors together.

As a tribute to his love of trucks and trains I went with a transportation theme. What is it with boys and thier choo choo”s ? He can”t get enough.  Notice how I left a few of his white nursery items behind-so what if they don”t match. It allowed me to leave a few of his baby things in the room.

I like to keep things simple, being pregnant I didn”t want a whole remodel so I went with decals and art to change up the room and central theme colors of red and blue to go with the dark wood.

TheseTransportation Decals

are great, they are inexpensive, look good and peel right off like stickers and you can reuse them over and over in different locations.  I put them on the door, used them to dress up his trash can, and even made art work out of them. I just took some canvas painted them blue and red and put a decal on them.

I used canvas storage bins, a lamp, curtains, and personalized chair and other Land of Nod accessories to pull all the colors together.  He also loves his
transportation rug.For more nursery and room decorating ideas check out Project Nursery.
