Toddler Corner- Room Sharing – This Gathered Nest


I thought it would be fun to share with you guys how we arranged Rosie’s little nook in the corner of our room! Eventually she will move into the “girls” room where her two big sisters are. But for now, we plan to co-sleep if she wants to, and we want to keep her close either way! This set-up would work really well if you are just crunched for space and needed to have a kiddo in your room. Just substitute her toddler bed for a crib!


On her bed, we have two throw pillows from Target, and one from Ikea. Her sweet little doll is handmade and is from Becky at JustPlainBecky on Etsy. She’s a fellow adoptive mama and I just adore these little dolls she makes! You can custom order them to look just like your kiddo if you want too! The quilt on her bed may just be my favorite thing in her entire room area!!! It’s a Cotton Muslin Quilt from Little Unicorn and it is THE SOFTEST thing ever. So perfect for little ones!


I made this letter R initial for her wall, all with supplies from Hobby Lobby, as a matter of fact, the girls loved it so much, they wanted one too! I’ve got a quick DIY tutorial on that coming in the next week!

The flower wreath, dresser and bed are all from Ikea! Clearly, we love Ikea! Her peach blanket and wood sign are both from Target!


Eventually, I plan to paint this dresser. I just can’t seem to decide what color/colors I want to do! I plan to hunt down some cute knobs too!


We got Rosie this sweet little toddler backpack for our time in China, and for her to keep her goodies in on the LONG plane ride home! The panda is from Zulily and the doll is a Corolle doll that I got for her on Amazon pretty much the day we decided to pursue her adoption ๐Ÿ™‚ The book, I Love You like Crazy Cakes, is one of my favorite adoption related children’s book and I can’t wait to snuggle up with Miss Rosie in the bed and read it to her.

I leave for China on Christmas Day and I am SO ready to go and bring our sweet girl home to her forever family! I hope she loves her little nook area as much as I do. It makes me smile every morning when I wake up!
