Exactly one week ago, we revealed our new nursery we completed in six weeks for the Spring One Room Challenge! It’s been so wonderful seeing the room pop up everywhere on Instagram and shared on other blogs and Pinterest, too. Thank you so much for sharing it. Truly.
Just like we did when we finished the bunk room for the Fall ORC (you can see the budget version of that room here), we wanted to share a budget version of this room, too! Because there are so many eyes on these rooms, sponsors are eager to be part of the One Room Challenge and have their products seen in the finished spaces.
1. Wallpaper (145 sq ft) $742 | 2. Crib $1094 | 3. Semi-Flushmount $349
4. Tripod Floor Lamp $239 | 5. Glider $899 | 6. 8×10 Marin Rug $1899
7. Dresser (with removable changing box) $1199 | 8. Pouf $229 | 9. Tassel Pillow $49
10. Side Table $66 | 11. Blue Green Pillow $198 | 12. Table Lamp $37
13. Tassel Crib Skirt $99 | 14. Pink Striped Pillow $58 | 15. Mobile $99
While we definitely put our own money and resources into the room, too, we know that the final room included some high ticket items (some gifted to us from the ORC sponsors), that might not fit into everyone’s budgets right now. I’ve rounded up a few really good lookalikes that brought the total down to less than a third of the original price tag. Check it out!
1. Wallpaper (150 sq ft) $284 | 2. Crib $323 | 3. Flushmount $99
4. Tripod Floor Lamp $64 | 5. Glider $276 | 6. 8×10 Navy Rug $217
7. Dresser (with removable changing box) $329 | 8. Pouf $69 | 9. Tassel Pillow $49
10. End Table $66 | 11. Indigo Pillow $60 | 12. Table Lamp $37
13. Tassel Crib Skirt $59 | 14. Pink Striped Pillow $34 | 15. Mobile $99
GRAND TOTAL: $2065!!
You’ll notice some pieces are the same in both the original and budget mood board, either because their price was already so good, or you’d be hard pressed to find a look a like for cheaper. I hope this gives you some more ideas and opens up doors for making your home truly yours.

We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.
