Andddd times up! It’s One Room Challenge reveal day! After weeks of working our butts off to pull together a cute little vintage sports nursery for our little man, we’re finally done!
This was definitely a different project for me to wrap my head around design wise. If you’ve been following for a bit you may know we just did a nursery that we loved in our last house for him and pulled it together right before he was born. Fast forward a few months and we’re in a new house, with a 10 month old and we were torn on what to do with his room. Should we do something similar to his last room and spend our ORC time on a different room? Or should we completely change it up and create a new nursery/little boys room that could grow with him? Spoiler alert, we chose to start from scratch and pulled together a completely different design 🙂
To bring it back to week one, here are the before pictures of his room!
It was totally fine, just very blue and not a lot of personality. I was also super excited about the little nook area next to the closet and knew right away that I wanted to create a floating bench there for him to curl up in to read books before bed. Or as my husband M said, to use as a jumping platform to go from the bench to his bed eventually. He’s probably right, but I’ll just dream sweet delusional dreams in my head of a sweet little boy reading and being completely non destructive or dangerous 😛
Anyways, enough with the small talk, let’s get to the photos!
I’m so happy with how the nook turned out! We added a sconce (it’s a plug in, but we routed it behind the wall and it’s plugged in under the bench to hide the cord) a place for books and lots of pillows. I went for the mismatched but lots of plaid look in this room. That’s totally a thing right?
I wanted it to feel very boy, but not so matchy-matchy and something that we could easily throw a big boy bed in after a few years.
We went back and forth about what to hang over the crib as well. We originally had bought a few old bats to hang from the local flea market, but in the end went with the original idea to use pennants. We of course decided this super last minute, so instead of trying to source some old pennants online and risking not getting them in time, these are another easy DIY using felt and our Silhouette machine!
The photo ledge built into the wainscoting was a simple DIY, and adds a bit of dimension to the frames (and prints all from Etsy!).
And we can’t forget this amazing chair and footstool that Homepop sent us! After the movers ripped holes in our rocker, we were so excited to work with them and replace it with this beauty 🙂
Last but not least, this fun light that we changed up last minute! The original light in our design came in and was nothing like we had thought, so we swapped it out for this guy and it turned out to be a happy accident! Plus, it was less than $80 and with Prime shipping was here in two days. It was a no brainer!
I clearly had a hard time narrowing photos down, so here’s a few more for fun 🙂
And that’s a wrap! If you made it this far through all of those photos you are AMAZING and thank you SO much for being here and following along! If you want to start from the beginning, weeks 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 are always available! And if you want to see more reveals (they’re SO GOOD!) be sure to head over to the One Room Challenge Blog for both the designers and participants spaces!
Thanks so much to the companies that helped us out on this room as well! The chair and ottoman are from Homepop, and the switch and plugs that worked seamlessly with our trim work are from Legrand! Both amazing and we’d definitely recommend checking them out!
