Jack’s Toddler Room

Jack’s toddler room is finally almost done. He’ll be three in February and he started sleeping in his “big bed” a few months ago. It was a bit sad for me to put away his crib!

We have temporary side rails installed on his bed and we keep one up most of the time. (He insists on keeping one rail down, and thankfully he hasn’t fallen off the bed yet!)

His bed linens are from his “Old Memaw”, who passed away last summer. We have her simple white quilt on his bed.

I recently had a large lumbar pillow made by a local seamstress and I love how it turned out!

The antique brass bed I found at an estate sale last year. It’s a full, so not too big and not too small.

Blaine installed a new (old) hot water radiator in Jack’s bedroom last summer. With the large bank of windows in his room, it used to get pretty chilly on cold winter nights. The room stays nice and warm now.

The unlacquered brass light fixture with blue stripes is from Rejuvenation. Bamboo blinds from Select Blinds.  (In hindsight, I would have paid extra for cordless.) His curtains were custom made using Riley Blake Designs Texas fabric. The plaid wool blanket is from Ebay.

Once he’s big enough for a proper desk, I think this might be a good spot for it. For now, I have a $5 Ikea side table for him to sit and play at. Dog artwork by my talented sister, Natalie. The clear acrylic shelves hold lots of colorful books.

We have an antique oak dresser on this wall, which we keep some of his clothes in. Shown thru the open little door is his walk-in closet, which thankfully is huge! I store extra pull-ups, wipes, toys, and other off-season things in there.

For fun, here’s a look back at his bedroom throughout the last few years.

Jack’s bedroom is the room with the ladder in it – as seen from our master bedroom.

Here is a look out his windows after we got the new roof put on.

I hope y’all are doing well and staying sane and positive! We’re in uncharted waters in our country right now.



We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed.  2 Corinthians 4:8-9
