One Room Challenge Week Two: Nursery Makeover

Welcome to Week Two of the One Room Challenge, created and hosted by Linda at Calling it HomeIf you missed my Week One post, you can click here to catch up.  My husband and I are expecting a baby boy in early July, and I am decorating his nursery. Today, I will share with you some current images from his room... 

Let's start with this vintage elephant table I scored for $50 on Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach. It was was pretty beat up - wobbly, missing tusks, chipped and gouged - when I bought it, but The Finishing Store brought it back to life!



Before and after! 

Our painter came last week and did an excellent job with the striped walls. It honestly looks like wallpaper, and I could not be more pleased! The room was already painted white, and the blue stripes are Sherwin Williams Open Air. I think it is the perfect shade of blue, so cheerful and bright!


The crib has been assembled! I chose a classic Jenny Lind crib in white. It is GREENGUARD certified, and you can't beat the price! Plus, it coordinates well with the vintage Thomasville faux bamboo furniture we thrifted over the weekend in Palm Beach county. Emily A. Clark recently repainted the exact dresser for her son's room, and we plan on following her instructions. Thank you, Paige, for the link!!


The Congo by Clarence House fabric has arrived, and our fabulous fabricator is coming on Friday to confirm dimensions for a custom headboard, and bedskirts for the queen bed and crib. I have been in love with this fabric forever, and when we found out we were having a boy, I knew I had to splurge.

New bedding coming soon!

Thank you to everyone who weighed in on my rug dilemma... I am still torn between ivory and leopard, but I think I will go with leopard because it will certainly be easier to maintain in a boy's room. I ordered a sample of this Stainmaster leopard carpet from Lowe's, and I think it will be perfect made into a rug. 


There is still so much to do, and I am definitely slowing down now that I'm in my third trimester. Thank goodness for the One Room Challenge to keep me motivated! Here is what the other ORC linking participants are up to, and click here if you missed the ORC participants who posted yesterday.
