For the first week of this spring's One Room Challenge Linking Event, I revealed my plan to design a nursery for our baby girl, who is due right after the room reveals next month!
This week the nursery was somewhat of a construction zone, as the crib finally arrived, so we got busy assembling said furniture!
As I mentioned last week, we chose the Babyletto Hudson Crib in the "Washed Natural" finish, which was back ordered until about two weeks ago. You can imagine my relief when I was able to order it and when it arrived in time for the One Room Challenge...and, of course, the baby!
(If you are very observant, you can see that our glider arrived last week, too!)
After removing the mat and a little trimming, my prints looked great in their Pottery Barn frames!
I will wait to reveal how the prints turned out once on the wall--gotta leave a little something to the imagination! In the meantime, here is the crib assembled--I still need to find a skirt and style it with linens, but so far so good!:
For the space above the dresser, I wanted to recreate a dress display like the following one by Paloma Contreras over at La Dolce Vita. My mother kept most of my little smocked dresses, many of which she sewed for me, so I want to feature them as a special focal point in the nursery:
To build my clothing rack, I found a floating shelf that would be long enough for the towel bar I bought, and deep enough for the little wooden hangers I found:
After the dresser, this project was a breeze!
As you can see, I have also mounted the curtain rods and was testing out the new curtains before
potentially destroying them sewing on the yellow pom pom fringe, which will be my big project this week, along with hanging the paper lanterns. So be sure to come back next Thursday to see how we all survive!
