Turner's Toddler Bedroom

When Alex and I found out we were having TWINS, I immediately started thinking about transitioning Turner from his crib to a toddler bed. I loved the look of small toddler beds (specifically the Jenny Lind style), but we had a small budget. I moved in a twin bed frame from our guest bedroom (removed the box spring) and voila....he loved it! He was 2 1/2 at the time, and wasn't crawling out of his crib at all. Thankfully the transition was quite easy.

We didn't change up much when going from a nursery to a "big boy room". We kept the glider, frames, but took out the changing table and added a dresser (our largest purchase). There isn't really a theme to the room, other than a few bits and pieces of our travels. I incorporated a London Bus Bank from Alex's childhood and a $10 world map from Ikea.  We had thrifted the large red "T" before Turner was even before, so I was elated to finally hang it on the wall! I'm usually not a fan of red, but it works in Turner's room, especially with the sock monkey quilt hand made by Turner's great grandmother.

His closet is still a work in process, but we have a vintage basket for laundry, metal baskets for different types of toys (trying to teach him organization), and space for wipes/diapers (because we are still in the process of potty training). We also store extra books and shoes in the closet. Maybe one day I'll show you photos ; )
