One Room Challenge: Baby Girl Nursery Week 1

Hey everyone! Thanks for tuning in to my fourth go linking up to the One Room Challenge. I posted a quick recap on the past challenges I have completed {here} if you want to take a look, and also mentioned how I have several rooms that need to come together ASAP. We are down to the wire for a nursery for our baby girl {currently 30.5 weeks pregnant}, we are fixing a big boy room for our son Weeks, and we are finishing up a master bathroom and closet reno. Sounds a little bit crazy, and it is! 

I couldn't decide at the beginning of the week which room to feature but I have come to a decision, partly fueled by my doctor visit Tuesday. I won't go into much detail right now, but I have been ordered to take it easy. That sounds like the opposite of taking part in the One Room Challenge but, we do need a nursery afterall! Things out of order or not ready make me stress, and I know I will have a big sigh of relief when this room is complete. I have been forced to come up with a design for the room which is exactly what I was lacking- now we just have to implement it.

Luckily, the nursery is already filled with furniture that we used for Weeks...so we are all set in that department. Relief! It will be a totally different look this time around with our baby girl, of course, and I look forward to making it sweet and feminine for her. I've been working on a design board the last few days that isn't quite complete but I cannot wait to share! For now, you can picture soft pinks and neutrals with touches of gold {you know me!} and softness with ruffles. Compared to some of our rooms in the past, this one does not require building/manual labor besides painting- which is so nice! 

Here is a look at our nursery, what it has looked liked for the past 2 years...it is a little bittersweet moving this baby into his "big boy room", and saying goodbye to the nursery I poured my heart into for that sweet boy. I am thrilled with how his new room is coming along though, and will post on that as it comes together in separate posts. For the original nursery reveal {from our old house} see here with sources here




So maybe most of my work will be done right here from behind the computer as I plan, order away, and keep you all updated {with ample time on my hands as I rest up}...and I hope you will follow along! It will be hard not to be hands on like I usually am, but I will do exactly what I need to do right now that is best for baby and I. And, if you have a minute, say a quick prayer for us that she stays put for a while, and we stay nice and healthy. Means the world, friends!

I can't wait to see how it all turns out! Georgia's nursery was all pink, gold, champagne toile and vintage ballet stuff. Fave color combo, so I'm really interested in seeing yours!
