One Room Challenge: Week 6 The Nursery Reveal!!

One Room Challenge: Week 6 The Nursery Reveal!! 

This is it! The final reveal! Have no idea what I am talking about? Well I jumped in with a group of super talented bloggers to transform a room in only six weeks in the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda from Calling it Home. The ORC, as we affectionately have nicknamed it, comes to a close this week and all the bloggers will be sharing their room reveals! I can’t wait to spend hours looking through all the posts. Check them out here! And if you are looking for the source of any of these items in the post please go here for a post on where I got everything.


We started off super strong and were getting projects done left and right at the beginning. But then I got tired, and am awful at making decisions, and have a very sore pregnancy back, and well things stalled for a little near the end here. But I can say that we have a finished nursery for our baby girl arriving in August and I am thrilled that I won’t be scrambling to get ready for her arrival in late July. Who am I kidding? I am sure there will be much scrambling involved…but at least the room will be done!

Let’s start with each week if you haven’t seen them yet!

This was our guest room and was so sad. The plan was for the furniture to stay (it was my nursery furniture!) make the closet more functional, re carpet the room, and  add lots more color and personality. We also painted the walls in Sherwin Williams Repose Gray. There isn’t a big difference in paint color in the befores and afters, but the new gray has a much grayer cast, where the before paint had a distinct blue undertone.

And yes, the wood trim is staying. Our house is 115 years old and has original oak trim. It is so beautiful and thick and shiny and I just can’t paint it. I know there are two very distinct camps on this and I am definitely in the no paint camp. Maybe one day when the wood really starts to show wear. I did paint my other daughter’s room and love it, but have no desire to do any other rooms!

The closet beforehand was just your basic closet. It got painted a bold coral color (Dishy Coral by Sherwin Williams) and got built in shelves on one side to help eliminate that dead space where you can’t really reach clothes.

I let my daughter help paint so excuse the paint on the trim!!

This corner is also the nursing corner and has a brand new glider, storage ottoman, side table, and linens. By removing the closet door, we have a lot more room in this corner.

This wall and corner got new curtains, fun little play bins from Target, and a nursery print from Hobby Lobby.







This twin bed got packed away and this corner became the reading nook with hanging canopy and pillows!





The book display shelves are one of my favorite pieces in the room and I love that they are at kid height and display all the books facing forward. The top one is the perfect height for some added accessories. Our older daughter loves these shelves and has been taking the books on and off constantly!

Right beside the book shelves is this DIY Hanging Canopy with a comfy book nook!



The wall behind the crib is now our gallery wall. This was my most procrastinated project because like I said, I can’t make a decision to save my life. I laid out about 1000 possible arrangements until I found one I liked. I realize now that the heart is a little low and will probably be baby bait, so it may need to be raised as she gets older. The large New Day Print in the middle is truly the centerpiece of the wall and inspired so much in the nursery.

And we need to talk about the crib. Seriously, how gorgeous is it?? It is the Jenny Lind Crib in Lagoon.


We went with carpeting from our local Carpet One and it is fantastic! They were a dream to work with and the carpet is thick, soft, and perfect for a baby’s room!

I absolutely love our bedding from ModFox. It is all handmade and the patterns and fabrics are just beautiful!

This dresser had its mirror removed, got new hardware, and will be the changing table. One of my favorite parts of the room is the polka dot wall behind this!

The polka dots were so easy to apply and I think they turned out great!

And some more after shots just for good measure!

 I honestly couldn’t have completed this room without the help of our sponsors. I was able to splurge a little bit on extra accessories since so many companies were so kind and provided us with other materials that we needed!
