Hey y’all! I hope you joined me on Tuesday when I blogged Sloane’s neutral glam nursery reveal, if you didn’t catch that you can read all about it here. Today I am sharing the gender neutral shared toddler bedroom that Grayson occupies.
I love shared rooms for little ones. I don’t know if it’s the sweet notion of old fashioned nurseries that children would all share and how much fun that would be as kid or if it’s the practical side of having all your little people in one spot, but I love it! I love all the stylistic directions you can go with shared nurseries.
I found the matching beds on Craigslist and painted them to match the dressers. The bed crown canopies were easily made with foam board covered in fabric, with curtains hung beside and behind them.
Just like Sloane’s nursery, my mom had found the dresser and night stand at a thrift store and saved them for me until we moved in. I gave them both a coat of glossy white paint and detailed the carving with Annie Sloan chalk paint in Napoleonic Blue. I added “panels” to the wall for added interest. The panels are made from styrofoam that I covered in a Nicole Miller shower curtain.
I drew inspiration for the room from a Rifle Paper Co. calendar, which is where I took the four prints above the dresser from. A SugarPaper gift box from target made a perfect accessory to pop on top of the dresser. I even added a little christmas decor, a gold tinsel tree and nutcracker, along with a larger tinsel tree and some feather wreaths hung on the beds.
I found a sweet vintage Irmi lamp and some Puffin Classics that are perfect night table accessories. Everything about this room makes me so incredibly happy. I love how everything is so coordinated without being overly “matchy.”
I can’t help but be a little sad that we will be leaving this house with this adorable little room soon. I got a little more attached to certain spaces in this short term rental.
