McKenzie's Modern Traditional Mix

Name: McKenzie (18 months)
Location: Valdosta, GA

We just moved to Georgia from Alaska (courtesy of the U.S. Air Force). My daughter McKenzie's room served as a nursery/guest bedroom when we lived in Alaska, so it didn't leave room for a lot of baby furniture.

She basically had a crib and a changing table, so when we moved to Georgia, McKenzie got her very own room in our new house. It felt bare and empty with only two pieces of furniture from her previous nursery.

Being budget conscious, I didn't want to run out and spend a ton of money on filling in her space with new furniture pieces, so I began a series of DIY projects that would help bring her room to life. With a few new items and a lot of DIY decor, my vision for a calm and soothing sleep and play space took shape. I am so happy with how it turned out, although I'm sure I will make adjustments here and there as she grows and her interests change.
