Baby Boy Nursery: One Room Challenge REVEAL

Hurdles. Hurdles can feel amazing once you manage to jump over them, but when you’re 7 months pregnant and feeling quite round, hurdles can seem impossible.

I am a little sad because I so, so badly wanted the daybed to work, but since I decided to “just go with it” and not space plan, I quickly slammed into that hurdle no matter how much I wanted to think otherwise. Usually I can wing it, but no matter how I tried to think of rearranging the room, the damn daybed was too big and bulky. The silver lining is that now there is appropriate space for a big beautiful glider, should I get one as the babe’s due date draws nearer. Also, we do have other rooms, so if I want to fall asleep outside of our bed, I can do so elsewhere. Or buy a bigger house. I am running out of rooms to decorate…

I digress. The great thing is that I did make it work with what I had, and the result is pretty darn cute. Decisions may have taken me 5 times longer than usual because – well, pregnant – but other than the length of time and few hurdles, this nursery is d-o-n-e!

Here’s where we started 6 short weeks ago:

Here are those framed fabric panels that Vito built – I love how they turned out. It was a great spot for the plush rhino head too.Baby Boy Nursery: HomeWork Design Co.

It’s hard to see because I’m terrible at using my camera, but the roman shades have some cute pom trim on them

My family uses the ASL “I love you” hand sign all the time, so I drew that and the peace sign as a little tribute to that.Baby Boy Nursery: HomeWork Design Co. Baby Boy Nursery: HomeWork Design Co.

Special, SPECIAL thanks to my amazing husband and Daddy-to-be for making the fabric panel frames, crown moulding, and being my go-to handyman. I love you more than you know. While the baby certainly won’t care about any of this, it makes me just that more excited for his arrival.

So that’s a wrap on the one room challenge! I can’t wait to see what everyone else has dreamed up and brought to life. Check out all of the participants here.

Sources coming soon – truth be told it was a miracle to get this post up in time!
