3 Year old Toddler Bedroom Upgrade: Mood Board and Inspiration

I can’t believe it’s finally happening! A little over 3 years ago I brought home a tiny little baby girl from the hospital and now she’s already ready for a big girl bedroom and a big girl bed.

In summer of 2019 I wrote about McFly’s nursery. Since then I’ve done so many DIYs and room transformations but to this day, that nursery is still one of my favorite spaces.

We put McFly’s new mattress on the floor to get her used to sleeping on a twin matress but it was time to finally take the crib and changing table out of her room. It’s already feels so unreal to me that her baby furniture is gone.

I’m excited to share the moodboard for her “new” big girl bedroom with you! As always, I want to make this as cost effective as possible. I’ll use some splurge items, some budget options, I plan to reuse some items she already has in the space, AND I plan to repurpose some items.

Spray paint is going to be my best friend in this room and I’m excited to share as much of the process with you as I can!

Installing DIY Luxury Vinyl Flooring by The Tile Shop

When we moved into our home our main level had a combination of engineered hardwood and shag carpet. Since moving in almost 5 years ago we’ve gotten a dog and had a child and that’s meant lots of spills, stains, and scratches on our original flooring.

I’ve wanted to replace our flooring with plank flooring for a while and decided that it was finally time! We don’t currently have the budget to hire a team to install new flooring so I took on the challenge of going the DIY route.

Flooring Choice 

I used Tile Shop’s Luxury Vinyl SPC flooring in the color Madera Miel. These 7”x48” large-format planks are installed as a floating floor with a click-lock system. They have the look of wood flooring with higher durability and lower maintenance. They’re scratch resistant and completely waterproof.


It was important for me to find a flooring that was easy to install since this project was something I was going to do on my own. This Luxury Vinyl SPC flooring doesn’t require any special glue and can be cut with a utility knife (I recommend a jigsaw and/or circular saw for rip cuts and rounded cuts).

It’s week 8 of the one room challenge! Do you know what that means? It means that It’s reveal day for my space!

The last 8 weeks have been insane (to say the least). I set out to turn my 2000s kitchen into a cozy, moody, and inviting space and I think that I’ve done what I set out to do! Before we go into the reveal, I want to remind you of what this space looked like when I started this project. Our 2000s kitchen had stained wood cabinets, large subway tile backsplash, speckled granite, and orange-y engineered wood flooring. There was nothing wrong with the kitchen, per say, but I was ready to turn our kitchen into a statement piece.

So, the moment you’ve been waiting for, the FULL REVEAL of our newly updated kitchen!
