Y’all – I am SO excited. Today begins the fun six week “One Room Challenge” put on by Calling It Home. Twice a year, she hosts a link up party to transform a room from start to finish in just six weeks. If you’ll remember, I participated last fall with Paige’s Living Room, and I’m participating this time with Jen’s nursery. Until MDub is ready to take on another project in our own house, lucky me, I always have friends willing to let me play in theirs!! Jeni has to have a nursery, so why not make it happen in 6 weeks!
Let’s take a look at the BEFORE pics of this room. Not bad, right? Lets just say, I had some part in it several years ago. If it weren’t for a new baby on the way, it wouldn’t be getting a facelift. I’m still in love with the wall of wallpaper, so it’s staying, but everything else is obviously going.
I promise, I am NOT an accent wall person at all. But for some reason, every room I’ve done in the last year seems to have some type of wallpaper or painting on one wall. I must get that in check!
The bed is being reused in big sister’s room, and she’s selling the RH nightstands – any takers? The baby pictures and TV will have to find a new home as we replace with changing table and rocker. Then there’s a giant wall of shutters and one whole wall of doors. I see an excited big brother and sister peeking in.
To keep us all on pins and needles, we won’t know the gender of this baby until he/she arrives. Don’t worry – I have a boy and girl option in the works. We will probably be putting the finishing touches on at midnight before the final day of the challenge. Nothing like keeping us on our toes.
The countdown is on……. For the baby’s sake, we need he/she to stay in longer than six weeks, but the designer in me wants this baby to come at 5 weeks and 3 days, so I can finish this room. #selfishfriend
