Minnie Mouse Themed Toddler Room : DIY Decor

Minnie-Mouse-Toddler-room

Our littlest has reached a rite of passage…. the “Big Girl” room!  No more nursery for her!  Bye bye crib and changing table – hello toddler bed and big girl stuff!

One of C’s first words was “Mimi Mow” – and what she meant by that was “Minnie Mouse“.  Proving once again that she is 100% mine, she shared her enthusiastic love for all things Minnie Mouse Bowtique at the ripe old age of one!  She had a Minnie Mouse 2 year old birthday party and naturally when we talked about her big girl room we all decided a Minnie Mouse Toddler Room was in order!  We had a lot of fun with our unisex Disneyland Bedroom and unisex kid’s Disney Bathroom – but now I get to do a Disney inspired room that can be 100% girlie – and I couldn’t be more thrilled!

Minnie Mouse

If you know me, you know I’m not a huge fan of ‘character’ bedding and clothes.  That being said, I respect that kids love it.  While I personally would have loved to custom make a little eyelet and ribbon toddler comforter, I knew she would be so excited to see Minnie Mouse on her bed each day, so I ordered her this  Minnie Mouse Toddler Bedding.  Big giant Minnie Mouse, flowers, pink, purple, I mean – what else does a two year old want?  I tried to soften the look a bit with crocheted baby blankets – one made especially for her, one for her big sister, that are in the perfect color scheme.

Disney Stuffed Animals

Little Miss C is our ‘I need a billion babies in bed or I can’t sleep’ kid.  We were one of those sets of parents that used to think that it was super gross and wrong to let kids pile up the stuffed animals, until we had a kid that ‘needed’ so many babies.  Now I just take as many as I can out to the laundry when she isn’t looking and know that someday she will outgrow it.

We repurposed the book sling from the big kid’s room (we swapped out red & white polka dot fabric for pink & white polka dot fabric) and hung it right at her level.  A rocking chair from my childhood and a stuffed Minnie larger than her (thanks Grandma) makes for a cozy little corner.

Book-Sling-DIY

Her little toddler bed is Pottery Barn, because only the best will do for my little princess.  Just kidding, while it is Pottery Barn, it isn’t because that is the only thing I am willing to decorate with….. it was $20 at a garage sale in a swanky neighborhood.  She got designer furniture cuz mommy was in the right place at the right time!

Whoa…. crazy long post – click ‘page two’ for more pictures and fun!

    Her room is absolutely adorable, she is a very lucky little girl. I can only hope to decorate a room this lovely one day. Thank you for the tutorials and I am looking forward to knowing how you did the ribbon in the chair rail.

      Thanks Dawn! It was a hubby project but he says it was SUPER easy but it looks super fancy! We actually did it on both of our girl’s nurseries. He said he will share a tutorial ‘soon’…. so my guess is I will need to nudge him in about a month ;-) But I will be sure to share as soon as he has time =)

  2. Every room gets cuter than the one before. All of you have talent galore. You could very well be interior decorators. I love it. AJ

  3. This is such a sweet room! As a family of Disney nerds ourselves, I approve. I am in amazement of that ribbon chair rail. It is perfect! I am also a little envious of that shelf your dad made. I really need to get better with power tools! Great job.

    I made this room or similar for my daughter but for the life of me I am unable to find the Minnie and Mickey side view silhouttes. Could you possibly send me the link for where you got them.

    • Kate Hamernik says:

      Hi Jennifer – we made the silhouettes ourselves – hand drawn, scanned in on the computer and printed out. =) I would love to see a pic of your room =)
