It's finally here! We did it! Congratulations to all those participating in the One Room Challenge! I have an even greater respect for you than I did before. That was intense!
If you are just joining me I took our old guest room turned office to nursery! Our first child is due January 28th and with the holidays and work travel schedules I wanted to get the nursery done in November. Check back to week one to see the before shots in the room's many iterations. Catch up on week 2, week 3, week 4, and week 5.
A word of warning before we get to the after shots: I did not style this room. Mostly because we do not have much baby stuff yet. The toys and books you see are all we have. We have a shower coming up in a couple of weeks and with the holidays I know we'll be given many of the items we will need. There was no way I was going to go out and buy toys and books when I know we'll be flooded with them in a matter of weeks. I'll have to do a follow up post after Charlie arrives to see how we really live in the space.
The glider cushions won't be ready for another week or so. I tossed some fabric over the ottoman to give you an idea what it will be like.
Those are blackout curtains. Trust me, they work. I kind of want to sleep in here myself.
A sweet giraffe print we got at RiverArts Festival.
Reginold, the knight, is probably not the most child safe item, but he's been with us for a long time. He was with us on the day that Bryan proposed and has lived with us from day one of marriage. Bryan thought he'd be perfect in a little boys room. He'll have to go live upstairs when Charlie is first mobile until he is steady on his feet, but I love that he lives in here now.
We got the book print at RiverArts Festival a few weeks ago. My mom picked up the Ann and Andy watercolors at a consignment sale.
I spray painted the old mirror gold to match the curtain hardware. I love that when I peek in this room I get a glimpse of the full room.
The old lamp got a new shade. It still needs to be re-wired, but we're getting there.
We found these tea towels when we were in Savannah and Bryan thought they'd be nice in the nursery in some way. Originally we were thinking pillows, but I loved the idea of cutting them out and using them as art. They add a whimsical flair.
The room isn't 100% done, but it's close enough. And I have a few months to put the finishing touches on anyways. So what do you think?
