Here we are at the next stop of the Jeanne Project. This part of the project was a magical adventure that lead me through the girly, girl world of her little fashionista, Jett. Being the mom of two little guys, I never get the chance to indulge in the fairytale land of pretty princesses dressed in pink! So as you can imagine, organizing Jett’s playroom was a special treat. Now, let’s talk about Jett for a minute. I absolutely LOVE this little cupcake! For those of you that don’t know her, she’s a beautiful, smart, witty little three year old that warms that hearts of everyone she meets. She’s a take charge, I know what I want kind of girl…& that in and of itself is a winner in my book! 😉 With a Daddy from Sweden & a Mommy from right here in the Red, White & Blue, Jett is an international toddler that will take your heart by storm.
First, let’s meet Jett. Then, we’ll meet her playroom.
See…I knew you would love her. Jett is a busy girl that loves to play, & she was in need of a little help getting her playroom in top notch order. Basically, she had a room full of toys with no rhyme or reason & without any special touches. Also, she loves doing art, but she didn’t have a desk for creating her masterpieces.
Now, if you’ve been reading my blog, I bet you can guess what’s going to happen next.
In the spirit of fairytales, let’s take a look at Jett’s playroom BEFORE Tinker Bell flies in & sprinkles her special pixie dust…
This is the closet that was being used for a storage. Mostly for stuff that needed to be in the attic, and yes, of course, I moved it there.
Okay…pixie dust sprinkled!!! Let’s take a look at the AFTER photos of the magical transformation!
Do you remember this lonely little wall from earlier??? That’s where I installed her new desk/shelving unit. It’s Elfa from The Container Store. The desk & shelves can be rearranged to fit her as she grows.
Let’s take a closer view of the details…details are important.
And look what I found at The Container Store. ”Jet” paperclips for Jett!!!
If you remember, this piece of furniture was on a larger wall & was awkwardly sticking out in the way. I moved it to a smaller wall & added some art that Jeanne had framed for Jett. If you look closer at the world map, it has a heart on Arkansas & a heart on Sweden. So sweet I can hardly stand it! Then I added some really cute organizational bins for her toys & a few of my own touches to make it feel extra special.
Notice the globe, animal canisters & love box? I put my crafting skilzzzz to good use & hand crafted each of them to make the perfect little space.
You can find these glass canisters at Hobby Lobby for about $4.00 each. Then I just glued an animal to the lid & spray painted it! LOVE!!!
I found this LOVE box at Michael’s for $6.00. I painted it & put chevron paper in the bottom to make it the perfect place for Miss Jett’s sunglasses & jewelry.
As for the Dr. Seuss globe, you can find the details of how I made it on my blog under the “Oh, The Places You’ll Go” post.
One thing I particularly love is the wall where we displayed Jett’s own art. Heather Owens, of Georgia James Creative, is responsible for this perfect idea! A while back, she helped Jeanne pick out some of Jett’s art & had it mounted in the perfect white frames. I think this should happen in every toddler’s room. Awesome job Heather!
I also made some letters to display Jett’s name with the chevron paper I used earlier.
And for the last wall, I added a very inexpensive heart canvas from Hobby Lobby just to brighten things up a bit.
I saw you peeking in that closet on the last pic. Here it is…the closet you saw in the “before” photos. All cleaned out & organized into the perfect place for all of Jett’s toys that were cluttering up her room before!
Finally, a place for all of her art supplies!
I almost forgot the new basket I got for all her balls & sporting equipment.
If you’d like a quick photo tutorial on the canisters & the letters, here you go:
Jett’s playroom is complete! Next stop…I’m getting crafty in Jeanne’s craft closet!
