I am so very excited to join the One Room Challenge™ (ORC)! Twice a year Linda from Calling it Home hosts a very popular challenge that participants completely transform a room start to finish in only 6 weeks.
I hope you will follow along with my journey to make over our guest room into our baby girl’s nursery who will be here in a few short 8 weeks. This only leaves 2 weeks after the final reveal until she’s here!
I am going to need all the support and encouragement from you to get me and this large belly through this!
So let’s go over the plan…
This is a picture of the guest room when we moved in. Holy Purple! They only thing we did since we moved in 3 years ago was paint the room the same color as the our living room. Sherwin Williams – Perfect Greige. I didn’t love this color in the room because there was only one window and the room is really small. So it seemed really dark. But I did’t really care. I was hoping we would be turning it into a nursery someday anyway!
Here is what our room looks like today:
A normal boring guest room with a bed, primed side table to big for the space and waiting to get painted, a comforter that my parents brought since they figured I didn’t have one, random toys to hide from my toddler and just a catch all of things I didn’t have a designated spot for.
Here is what I want to accomplish in the next 6 weeks:
- Remove chair rail
- Paint walls and trim
- Sew new curtains/pillows
- Move in crib, changing table and chair from sons room
- Create wall decor
- Book storage
- New dresser
- Add lighting
- Add rug
- Add small side table
- Super organize clothes and changing area
I’m sure as I go along there will be other items added to this list since my ideas are always growing.
What do you think? Can I finish all of this in 6 short weeks being 32 weeks pregnant? Fingers crossed!
