Shortly after I arose from the plague of the first trimester I started dreaming up what I want Lyric’s new bedroom to look like. The baby will move into the nursery so we relocated the office to the dining room so Lyric can have her own room. Fast forward a few months later and now it’s all starting to come together. Envisioning a design in my head and making it come to life is why I love renovating spaces in our home so much.
I pictured her room filled books and her bed piled high with pillows where we can snuggle up and read together. Bright and airy with pops of color and a calm space where her imagination can run wild. I want to give her a corner in the house that’s all her own and reflects her sweet and adventurous personality.
I wasn’t even perusing Pinterest when I nearly died and went to heaven seeing this mountain mural by Party Parade for the first time. It’s not often that I find a design that I love every aspect of; I usually just use it for inspiration and make a bunch of changes to better suit my needs and taste. This mural though, checked every box on my list and easily adds color to the newly painted white walls. Everything about it was perfect. I JUST finished it the other night and I can’t wait to show you how fun and dreamy it looks!

With the discovery of just the right inspiration, came the theme of her new room! There ain’t no mountain this girl won’t climb in her lifetime. There ain’t no mountain her dad and I wouldn’t climb for her and there ain’t no prettier mountain than a pink one!
PS – I’ll be giving away two of these custom prints from Life with Peanut in a few weeks!
We’re converting Lyric’s current toddler bed back to a crib for her little sister so she needed a new one for her room. I wanted a twin daybed (vs a toddler bed) to maximize the floor space and double as a bed that my family can use when they come to visit. I was originally looking at the daybeds Ikea has now but couldn’t bring myself to commit because they’re quite high and the solid frames looked “bulkier” than I wanted. I’m so glad I hesitated because I hit the jackpot with this used Ikea Tromnes bed that’s since been discontinued. It got a fresh coat of paint and won’t hide the mural as much as the other beds would have which makes me one very happy mama.
I had already bought three thrifted finds before I realized how much DIY I had got myself into. Granted, I have no problem with that since buying used and DIYing is one of my favorite ways to add character to a space, (and on a dime!) but I’m still thinking it’ll take me a while longer to finish up what is still left on my to-do list. I have a few pieces, including her thrifted dresser, to refinish and some DIY shelving and hair bow storage to tackle. Luckily I saved a lot of time by skipping any major finishing work (like the pine wainscoting I did in the nursery) so I have time for a few more DIYs in this room. Next week we’re shopping for her light fixture and area rug, then we’ll be on the home stretch!
There’s your little sneak peek into what I’ve been working on! I still have a few details to pick out and I’m working with some amazing companies that I’m so excited to have a part of the design! Keep your peepers open for updates and more DIY tutorials than I probably even know I’m in for. Who decided that 24 hours in a day is enough, anyways??
