So here we go people, another round of the One Room Challenge! Did you see the official line up yesterday? I know that I will be stalking her, her, him, and him for sure! This will be my 6th round which is pretty cool/crazy but I’ve found that deadlines are good for me. And this time I really did have a need for a makeover so I figured why not? If you’re new to all of this, Linda from Calling it Home created a series in which you try to makeover a room in 6 weeks. The official participants share their progress each Wednesday and all of those linking up share theirs on Thursdays. I am going to redo Harper’s nursery and this makeover is emotionally challenging for me so I needed the insanity of the ORC to keep me from going into the fetal position.
The time has come for the crib to come down once and for all. It’s been up for 9 (!!) years so I feel like I am losing a limb. No matter how hard I’ve tried with Harper I have not been able to stunt her growth or baby voice. She is becoming a true threenager and she is demanding a big girl bed. She also likes to talk, a lot, and wanted to be on my video so here is her debut. Excuse the pjs and robe…we were staying in theme. And, no that is not my regular voice- colds and allergies be damned!
So, if you made it through those 4 minutes then you know we have chosen sheets…Harper chose “flat-minkos.” Luckily I have also chosen a bed and as of today it is up and I love it! I thought it would be cool to give visual updates as we go so you can see the plans come together in real time.
Isn’t that bed what we all wanted as little girls?? I stumbled across it one day and knew that it was going to be my starting place for everything else. It is the Sophia bed and it is great quality and the color is a really pretty true navy. It also comes in beige and grey. I found it through DHP Furniture and I can’t say enough good things about them. It arrived quickly and their customer service has been awesome!
Other than those things we are working around some of the existing pieces in the room. One of my main goals when decorating kids’ spaces is to choose things that can transition as they get older. Luckily many of the things we used in Harper’s nursery can go right into her threenager room.
