We’ve talked it up enough, so without further ado, here is the inaugural video post on our blog: a tour of a room full of love, AKA Miss M’s bedroom. I hope you can see how a child’s nursery has transitioned to a young girl’s bedroom and how the art and decorations have grown with her.
I hope you all realise how nervous I was about making this video. My camera and editing skills obviously still need some work. I have also poured so much love into so many – perhaps too many – little things that make the room unique. Until now, the room hasn’t been seen by more than a couple of handfuls of people, and I was nervous about what you might say.

We’ve already toured the wall art in Miss M’s room, and we’ve shared how to make the ‘Once upon a time’ wire wall art and the numbered chest of drawers. We also looked at the other DIY projects in the room. Here are the other things that helped transition Miss M’s room from a child’s nursery to a young girl’s bedroom.
- IKEA Minnen bed – Miss M wants me to paint it but has not decided what colour. At last count, it was rainbow.
- IKEA Hemnes Chest of drawers
- Bookshelf – purchased nearly 17 years ago at a flea market for EUR 5. I had three people try and buy it off me as I carried it home.
- IKEA Strandmon Armchair chair for reading
- Wardrobe – inherited, with new knobs similar to these.
- The table was originally a coffee table, similar to this one.
- Scandinave Chairs
- Vintage chest found a number of years ago at a second-hand store
- ‘Book’ wagon found the Zöppkesmarkt – a huge knife and flea market held in Solingen in September each year.
- The vintage tricycle I found at a kids clothing store that was closing down when I was pregnant with Miss M.
- Globe – my mother-in-law had saved it from when my husband was a child
- IKEA Fubbla LED wall lamp (no longer available in pink)
- I know I got the curtains from IKEA but don’t remember exactly which ones they were (this is their 3rd window); these are similar.
- Kasper wooden boxes – tweaked a little
t’aimecushion and white and silver washing basket: both were from H&M but are no longer available
- IKEA Duktig doll bed – tweaked a little
- Rainbow wall hanging – cute and much cheaper than many others available (and I have no time to make one! No longer available)
- Removable wall decals (stars) – Etsy
- Sheets – amazon
- Pillowcase (with star border) – Zara home kids (no longer available)
- Wooden stacking blocks – inherited. My Mother-in-Law saved a number of things that Peter and his sister used to play with as children. These blocks are even older
- Stuffed toy zoo – This was originally a chicken coop, which I had planned to make into a coffee table. When Peter nixed the plan, it was in storage for a while before I added the letters and made it into the zoo
- Dinosaur perspex dino frame – TK Maxx
- Tooth fairy door – Etsy
- Large pink metal M – TK Maxx
- Pull along wooden kangaroo – made by my grandfather
A room full of love: a 2020 update
Thank you all for your feedback, support and pins! We’re going to be doing a post on the rainbow and watercolour decor items that are easy to make and will transition with your child as their nursery becomes their bedroom. This post will include many of the things that you see in Miss M’s room and the instructions to make your own for a room full of love for your little one (or you!). Who knows, we might even add an updated tour to show you what has changed (once we get it cleaned up…).
Thanks for touring this room full of love
Some of you might know how much thought and hope goes into creating a nursery and bedroom for a child, especially your first (and only). Miss M’s room really is a room full of love and it has grown well with her, even as the room has transitioned from a child’s nursery to a young girl’s bedroom. Good luck designing your own
What do you think? Is there anything you’d like to know more about? Any projects that you want to try? Do you have any tips on how to transition a child’s nursery to a young girl’s bedroom.
Let me know and until then,
