ORC Week 6: Nursery Final Reveal

ORC Week 6: Nursery Final Reveal

It’s finally the end of the Spring 2019 One Room Challenge, and I’m so excited to share the reveal of my room! As I’ve mentioned a couple of times, since my due date was April 10, we worked ahead to get this nursery finished in advance, so it has been done for a while. Waiting until now to show it all off has been hard, though not as hard as waiting for Juniper to arrive. But I love how it all came together, and the wait is finally over!

If you’ve just arrived at DIY in PDX via the ORC blog, welcome! I’m Rachel, and I blog about everything DIY, from fixing up my old house, to making accessories and decor, to growing plants and cooking. But I’m currently working on my most ambitious DIY project yet: By the end of the Spring 2019 ORC I’ll have given birth to my first child. She’s here! So I’ll be creating a nursery for our new little one.

This is Juniper, who made her appearance on April 18, 2019. Yes, she was born with a lot of hair!

Since last week, the biggest change is the addition of the accessories, and this dresser. If you’re thinking about getting this dresser, here are some tips. It comes fully assembled in a giant box, which can be good or bad, depending on your situation. Since it wasn’t hard to get into our house and into the nursery, it was good, because it meant one less thing to put together. But it also means that shipping can be expensive, so I was glad to find that Target ships it for free. It does take weeks to arrive, though, and mine arrived with one corner slightly dinged up. Not badly enough to deal with returning it, though.

We happened to find this gorgeous vintage un-used baby book in a thrift store for $3. We’ve been filling it out since Juniper was born.

See that white table that the lamp is on? Eventually I’d like to replace that with a low bookshelf/toy cubby unit, but I needed a table for now. So that’s actually an Ikea plant stand from the as-is section that I had laying around. It was too tall, though, so I chopped about 5 inches off of each leg with my jigsaw.
