Hello and happy Thursday!
I know what you’re thinking – “One Room Challenge week 4?!! What happened to weeks 2 & 3?”. Well, to be honest there wasn’t much action going on in the nursery until last week. We cleared the room one week, and did nothing the next because life has been hectic and there has been a ton going on. Last weekend the room went from zero to sixty. In two days my husband finished clearing out the remaining things in the room, painted, built the dresser and crib, and put together the glider. Poor guy was hard at work last weekend, but things needed to get done and he’s such a trooper about it all (amidst some complaining 😉 ).
Ok, so let me fill you all in from the beginning – lets start with the paint. I’m not really a pink person, at all – my oldest daughter’s room has been green since day one and accented with pinks, peaches, mint green and gold. This time around though, I wanted to paint the room pink. I picked the lightest shade of pink I could find. It is called Frosty Peach Ribbon by Glidden. It’s so soft and such a beautiful color. Her room is small, and unfortunately the weirdest shape, so I didn’t want a color to overpower the room, I think the color we picked works perfectly!
We decided on the Hemnes 3-drawer Chest in the white stain for the room because of its size. It fits perfectly in the crevice of the wall I wanted. We originally thought we would use our oldest daughter’s dresser for the space but it was too big so we got this one and love it so far. I’ve already started stocking the drawers with all of the baby things and am so happy with how deep the drawers are. The only thing I’m worried about is fitting the changing pad PLUS a diaper caddy on it. My mother-in-law got me a storage cart – you can kind of see it in the pictures. Although it’s very cute, I’m not entirely sure about using it. So far it seems hard to get things in and out of the cubby holes. We bought Ikea’s storage cart, but it is going to be too big and bulky for the area I want it.
I’m in LOVE with our DaVinci Jenny Lind Crib. It’s a perfect size for the room, not bulky at all and brings the perfect splash of vintage charm to the room. I can’t wait to put my Carousel Design custom bedding on it and see my whole vision come to life!
The carpet shown was just delivered yesterday. I had originally ordered this one (here) and while I thought it was very pretty, the colors were too dull for the room and the cream color in the carpet almost looked dirty. I found this one (here) on Target.com too, and thought it was beautiful and would work well in the room. The quality is great and it was half the price of the other carpet, score! Another Target find was the cute pillow on my glider (by the way, my glider is from Buy Buy Baby – it’s called the Felicia Glider. Unfortunately it is no where to be found online, but it is sooo comfortable and reclines) the aqua piping on the pillow is perfect and will go great with the pink and ivory throw that I plan on draping on the glider.
I’m slowly but surely starting to organize her closet, I’ve bought a couple of bins and hope to have it done soon.
That’s all of the progress so far. I hope to hang up the curtains and art for the walls this weekend and have the room look mostly finished.
Here’s what’s left to do in the room
