we recently moved atlas from his nursery (which i posted about here!) into a different room in our house that has a bit more space & an actual closet for more storage. i wanted to create a toddler room with a reading nook for us to be able to play, read and hang out in there because his nursery felt so “baby” and we will need that room eventually for baby #2 anyways!
i was kinda nervous about transitioning him into a different room thinking he would be confused or not sleep well (even though he’s still in his crib) but he loves it & is not phased by the change at all! the walls in the room were blank (painted gray screen from sherwin williams) and instead of just hanging wall art, i decided to paint (with the help of dek, of course!) a mountain mural inspired by this one i found on pinterest. atlas will be 2 in october and is not potty trained yet (we’re kiiiiinnnd of working on making him aware of it at this point so we have a ways to go!) but that just means that i wanted a dresser in his closet to be used as a changing station. we got this dresser (we have the same one for the baby in the nursery still) & it fits perfectly. i’m linking the products used to bring his room to life below, but if you have any questions – feel free to leave me a comment!

we re-did the closet because it had mirrored doors on it and they felt so constricting. i wanted the room to just be one big, open space so we took the doors off and removed the metal shelving to start over. dek installed these lights and built & stained custom wooden shelves for it too. such a nice makeover!
this is the best chair ever, we have two of them!
thanks for reading!
