Farmhouse Toddler Room Design

Hello there!  I am so excited to share my design board for our two year old's farmhouse toddler room!  We've lived in our farmhouse for about ten months now, and I've had plenty of time to dream up some plans.  Here is a collection of what I have in mind.

I'm looking for that farmhouse feel with the farm animals, and rustic woods and chippy paint.  But then I'm bringing in that vintage elegant touch with the mint/sage and cream peony wallpaper, floral fabrics, the brass and crystal chandelier.. and of course shiplap!

I've had my eye on this picket fence bed for over a year now!  I can't wait to build it!  I haven't decided if I will stain the wood, or paint it cream.  But I love the design. You can find the plans on Jen Woodhouse's blog! 

Here are some before pictures of Scarlett's room.  I have now peeled off the red and white polkadot wallpaper, and red molding.  I'm hoping we can get an actual air conditioner in here this summer, and add some ducting to her room and our master bedroom.  Then we could get rid of the baseboard heaters!!

I have most of the planking done now, and just have some bottom pieces to finish up.  Then I can paint a few coats of my favorite creamy white paint.  It's called Vintage, by Valspar.  I get that at Lowes.

I'm also going to replace the baseboards with a tall molding to match the rest of our farmhouse.  Our house was built in 1910, but the master and this room were added on in the 70's.  I want this side of the house to feel like it was always here.  So I think adding those classic moldings and lighting will really tie it together.

The wallpaper I picked out is a Waverly design, called Forever Yours.

I've had this adorable vintage farm animal poster for months now.  It's actually a thick sheet of wrapping paper I picked up from a store called The Nest.  It was the inspiration behind her farmhouse room design.  Well that and the fact that we do live in a farmhouse! :) 

Well, that's it!  I will post updates when I have a few to show!  I'm up to my forehead in custom building and furniture restoration right now.  So, my fun little project will take a little longer.

I hope your day is blessed and you feel inspired to create and enjoy your home and family!
