One Room Challenge – The Reveal

Better late than never right?:)

Last week I may have completely and utterly slightly overbooked myself, so our little One Room Challenge got neglected a bit.  Not to worry, our day has finally come to reveal Butter’s big boy room.   For those of you just tuning in, Linda from Calling it Home organizes this little endeavor twice a year, for bloggers to transform 1 room, in 6 weeks. I learned about the competition days before it started, so yeah, this was done with very little pre-planning.

Alrighty, here goes nothing:)

Let’s remember the enchanted forest nightmare where we started…

One Room Challenge – Week 2

Black and white nursery design

After taking  inspiration from some of the gorgeous images in our week 1 post, this is the mood board that came about.  Though it may look a little LOT bananas all squished together on one little square like this, once it is all spread out in the Butter Bear’s room, it shall be black and white big boy heaven. We’re a little behind, so it’s time to get our plan firmly in place, and this upcoming week we will start getting down to business.

1. Paint – White, white, and more white. Enchanted kingdom be gone! Right now I’m thinking Sherwin Williams Pure White in eggshell.

2.  Chalkboard paint – cover the tallest wall in the room (above the crib) with black chalkboard. The ceilings are 11 feet tall, so I’m looking forward to it being an ever-changing canvas of creativity. Mostly for Htown and myself.

3. Ceiling – after crushing on the nursery in our week 1 post, I decided Butter’s ceiling needs to have a HUGE impact. Considering using these same triangle decals (pictured above).

4. Light fixture – I really, really wanted this atom chandy, but the reviews were awful. Like this thing breaks when you change the light bulbs awful. Looking for something else that might be equally as fun, and not a million dollars

5. Big boy bedding – new pillowcase, quilt, and sheets

6.  Book shelves – in nook behind door all the way up to the ceiling.  Hooks at the bottom for hats or jackets.

7.  Teepee – So I really want one, but these bad boys are expensive. Then I discovered the magic of Tip Top Teepee Shop. If you purchase one of their teepees, and have them professionally photographed in your adorable space, they will credit your purchase in return for using the photos on your website. Yessss.

8. New pillow/throw for chair – would love to pull in some of my faves from Jonathan Adler. This pillow is a must, and this throw might be perfection too.

9. New hardware on dresser – perhaps a simple stainless knob for a more grown up boy

10. New rug – something inexpensive that I won’t cry about when potty training happens…like…on it. This bad boy from ikea is first on the list.

Lots of ordering and prep work to do! By the time I check in with you next week, hopefully much more of this will be underway. Stay tuned! And be sure to check out all of the other participants week 2 updates at Calling it Home!
