One Room Challenge: Baby Girl Nursery Week 3

Thanks for joining me back here to the halfway point for this challenge. If you are just tuning in, we are designing our baby girl's nursery that we are expecting in June. Nothing like the last minute here y'all. The design is sweet and chic {see design board here}: plenty of neutrals with pops of pink, a hint of glam, and plenty of girly things to keep it sweet enough for a baby. 

Here is what got accomplished this week:

We have a paint color! I ran by Benjamin Moore on the way home from my checkup yesterday and one of my samples was a perfect match. The color I selected is Timid White and it pairs with our wallpaper choice perfectly. I'm really hoping the walls get painted this weekend, even though that was on the list last week!

Some of the trim and doors in our fixer upper house are still yet to be repainted our trim color, White Dove, and the doors in the nursery are two of them. Stephen got one painted and switched out the hardware to brass {we are going all brass in our house!} and the other awaits.

My window hardware should be arriving today...I ordered it the beginning of April and have gotten delayed shipment notifications since. That is rather frustrating because I am waiting to decide on the window treatments until they are here! So that is in limbo.

Crib sheets are on the way...check, check! I really would like to do a crib skirt myself after really not liking the one that we had for Weeks. Crib mattresses are SO snug against the crib these days and I practically had a fight with the mattress and skirt each time I changed his sheet. The skirt I would like to make actually ties onto the wire underneath the mattress and is adjustable as the mattress moves down. On the lookout for fabric this weekend!

The vanity needs a coat of paint, which is ready to go. I also removed the hardware to strip it of the decorative paint it had. After a few pinterest searches, the hardware is restored to original brass and they are beauties! Pics to come.

I showed you last week these sweet pineapple knobs...well they are no longer part of the nursery. I managed to cut my finger on the outer edge of the end piece and Stephen nicked two pairs of dress pants on them! What?! Seriously, how does that happen? They are knobs! I still love the knobs and hope I can incorporate them somewhere else in our home, but they are not ideal for a piece of furniture you brush against, let alone in a nursery. Instead, I found these at Hobby Lobby and love them!

And for one last design change, Stephen installed the light and it isn't quite enough light for the room. He also called it "weird" and I frantically searched for something else. I found a chandelier at a great price and I am hoping that is the winner! 

Per usual, we are behind schedule and Week 4 is going to have a lot of making up to do! That is all for my update this week, I can't wait to see what everyone else has accomplished!
