Week four of this season’s One Room Challenge might be my favorite so far, because we brought in furniture and the space is really starting to look like a little boy’s nursery!
When it came to the bigger pieces, I had already made most of the decisions before we started the room while in the design board phase. The new crib, dresser, light fixture, using the rocker from our older son’s nursery, and the type of rug I wanted for the space. Outside of the footstool, the only thing that was up in the air was the curtains.
Blackout was of course a must, but I’m also not afraid to order regular curtains and add a blackout liner, so that doesn’t help narrow down options very much!
I ended up bringing in three different options, and bringing them into the space to see exactly how they felt. Originally I fell in love with a forest green pair from West Elm, but I just couldn’t stomach the price and delivery timing. So, plan B it was! Aka two day shipping from Amazon and Target 🙂
These were quickly narrowed down to the white striped and charcoal gray options. As much as I wanted to make a green color work, this green was just not my jam. I loved the stripe on stripe pattern with the wallpaper and curtains, but the charcoal ended up feeling so much more substantial in the room, and bonus, they were already black out!
Now that all of the big items are in, it’s allll about those little details! I’m going to be getting creative with a frame for some art above the crib, making some DIY wood pegs for above the dresser, and some accessories to make it personal for our little guy.
I got super lucky with the leather side table and rug finds at Homegoods before quarantine struck, along with the basket for under the table. The dresser is from PB Teen and we just swapped out the handles, and the rocker has held up so great, even though the movers punctured two holes in it. Just add it to my list to fix this week 🙂
That being said, there is SOO much more to come and layer in to make this room exactly like I’ve envisioned, and only two weeks left to get it done! Ready, set, go!
