A few weeks ago, we shared our happy news that we’d be expecting our third child, another little girl, this summer! So when we were asked to participate in the One Room Challenge again this Spring, we knew exactly the room we’d want to tackle in the allotted 6 weeks–the nursery! Which currently looks like this:
But before we first spruced up the room, back in 2014, it looked like this:
The space has served as our second daughter, Faye’s room, for the past three years (check out those pictures here) until she recently moved into the bunk room with Greta, which was coincidentally the room we tackled for the last One Room Challenge (read more about that here)!
A few weeks ago, we cleared out the nursery and sold or gave away most of the things that filled the former room for a fresh start, with the exception of the Graham Glider (which I still love so much!) and Faye’s dresser that still has a few clothes in it, although I don’t think we’ll use it for the new nursery.
It’s an Ikea TARVA dresser that we dressed up, but the drawers don’t extend fully and it’s a little narrow, which already makes the drawer space tight. Although we’ve used it the past three years, since this room doesn’t have a closet, a dresser with more adequate and functional storage would definitely be worth the extra money.
The room itself is pretty small in size–just shy of 10×12–but it’s directly across from the master, which makes it perfect for a nursery. Over the next six weeks, we hope to turn it into a soft, serene room with lots of cream and blue accents.
Our first project–adding some pretty box molding to the walls!–is happening this weekend and we’ll report on that next week. Can’t wait to share how this room comes together over the next 6 weeks with all of you.
