We’re off to the second week of the One Room Challenge and our white Scandi nursery has already gone through some serious changes! Remember to follow the other bloggers right here or check out ORC on Instagram with #oneroomchallenge
I was able to really pin point the design direction for our nursery in week one of the challenge. With these general ideas in mind, I started to make concrete plans! I spent some hours online window shopping, pinning away on Pinterest and playing with some new ideas. I also started to make some decisions for things that we’ll need to buy. All in all, a really good, productive week!
Craft Room Be Gone!
Before we were able to get anything done in this room, the craft room had to go! And by go, I mean, I had to move everything downstairs into the office. It looked like a bomb had hit our house and left a huge mess – and all I could think of was the song: Welcome to my World… LOL
In the office, things didn’t look much better… 😉
Painting the Nook – AGAIN!
As you may or may not remember, there’s that super cute closet nook. And way ago, I went out on a limb and tried myself at colorful walls. The nook was painted blue – which ended up being a huge disaster… and then a few months later I painted it pink. I mean, the pink was PERFECTION and I absolutely loved the barely there color. But of course this baby had to be a boy and those pink walls needed to go again 😉
I played around with soft greys for a while – heck, even with some serious geometrical wall art ideas – but then decided to just go with white. It’s clean and simple and it looks really really good now!
Adrian had built these shelves for under $50 some months back, and painting the 2×3’s that hold up the shelves was the BEST idea of the whole entire week! Now they look so much more custom, rather than sore thumbs! By the way, the nook will be transformed into the changing station. The shelves are just the right size for a changing mat and there’s so much storage here!
Once the nook was painted, I couldn’t help myself but to feel the need to give the rest of the room a new coat of paint as well. It took me about 2 1/2 hours and the room looked so fresh and beautiful, a real dream!
New Electrical Outlets
While I was painting away, Adrian exchanged the old electrical outlets. Now they’re not only safe for this babe, they’re also all the same and not painted over in a lavendery, ugly color from the previous owners!
Throughout the week I also made some decisions about curtains, ordered curtain hardware, looked at all sorts of cute and functional storage options and started to think about fabric options for the DIY crib mattress covers I’m going to make. Yep, and that pretty much concludes week 2 of the One Room Challenge! I couldn’t be more excited for this white Scandi nursery and how it’s all just starting to come together!!
