Our Home | Arden’s Toddler Room

It’s been awhile since you’ve seen Arden’s room. And actually, you haven’t seen it since we’ve moved! Arden’s been growing, growing, growing and so her room has had to grow a bit with her! Arden is such a character these days, it’s fun learning her quirky, little personality. One thing I’ve noticed is she loves patterns with black and white. So I figured it was time to give Arden’s room an update to suit her.

This is the room before we moved in. Yikes, right? Awful, awful colors. Look at little Arden crawling around 🙂 She wasn’t walking yet…so cute.

First things first, we PAINTED. We went with a classic white, Olympic no-voc paint in “Delicate White” from Lowe’s. I also used little removeable circle stickers to create a fun wall accent around her bed. Her reaction when she first saw it was priceless. Her little jaw dropped open and she ran right over and started picking at them : She’s since rearranged the dots every night! Little stinker 🙂

We also switched out her crib to a toddler bed that Grandma gave us (a local garage sale find). Free is always nice 😉  

We hung up the same black, velvet drapes that we used in the master bedroom. They’re such a good deal and they help keep the room warm by insulating the drafty windows. We made it a little more fun by using this this cute bird window hardware. Arden loves it, every time she looks at one of the birds she crows. Adorable.

Her night stand, lamp and birdie friend are still here from her original nursery. The nightstand is the perfect place to store her “nighttime” books.

We hung the striped hooks back up on the wall at toddler height, so she can hang up her own coats. And her little mini Cristof hangs out here too.

I’m still breastfeeding, for now (trying to hang in there until she’s two) so we still have a comfy rocker and a little remnant of her nursery peacock theme in this pillow 😉

Arden’s been potty trained for almost a month now, so we figured it was time to take out the diaper bin and take the changing pad off the dresser. Her personalized trophy cup and dog night light are right at home here. And we finally hung the awesome print we got as a gift for her birthday.

I found this charming, vintage chalkboard at the Alameda Antique Fair and had to hang it up too. I used these easy, peasy poster strips to hang the chalkboard and her wall print! Love ’em because you don’t have to leave any holes in the wall.

I love the original crystal door knobs, gorgeous aren’t they?

Hope you guys liked the tour of Arden’s toddler room! Thanks for tuning in 🙂

  1. I love this room and that you accomplished such a fresh and happy look with this color palette! Awesome

    1. Thanks Jessica 🙂 I tried to make it so it's almost a blank slate, for Arden to add her own touches, without having it be too boring! hahaha

  2. It's beautiful! I love that it's whimsical and sophisticated at the same time. Girly, but not screaming GIRL! So cute!

  3. Love the room, also… totally interested in how you potty trained your 18 month old. My daughter is 17 months and would love to get started on the potty training.

    1. Love Arden's room and also wondered about the potty training! Will have to try it out. My daughter is 21 months and is also pretty aware of when she goes.

  4. It's absolutely adorable!! So many things to comment about. First- her dresser. Gah! That is amazing. Love the dots around the bed, what a great idea! Love the poster. And wha?? She's already potty trained?! Holy smokes, that's awesome!

    1. Thanks Chels 🙂 It's pretty basic right now, but I'm sure Arden will be adding her own "special" touch soon! hahaha

  5. Reichel:
    Arden's room looks great! Where did you get those great wall hooks from? I've been hunting high & low for something like those for my daughter's room!

  6. I LOVE it! Our daughters room is B&W too- it's just classic! You did a beautiful job. Where did you find the cute polka dot decals?

  7. Reichel thank you very much 🙂 All of the stickers I've seen in the past cost and arm and a leg!

  8. Love the room and your decorating ideas. My daughter has the exact same dresser that we painted for her to use as a changing table for our granddaughter. The veneer was pretty bad in places so we had to do a little repair on it too. The drawers offer a lot of storage room and it is a perfect size for the changing mat and accessories on the side.

  9. It's gorgeous! Where did you get those stickers? I've been thinking of doing something similar, but am scared to put stickers on the newly painted wall.
