Well it scares me that I just typed Week 4 in the title of this post. I think I have to agree with Linda, host of the ORC, who says week 4 is the toughest. Not a ton completed, but still some important progress in our masculine nursery project. We (as in poor hubby) built the vintage-inspired roadster (above), and the hardware for the daybed drawers arrived (below) but has yet to be installed:
Oh and the really big deal? We ordered the crib on Sunday and it already arrived yesterday!!! Phew, I was so fearful that I'd be all embarrassed posting a nursery reveal without a crib!
Here is my checklist from last week with some quick updates:
Purchaseand frame art (I decided to go with a grouping of frames above the daybed, and ordered this, this, this and this from anewall - awaiting their arrival) Purchaseand swap hardware on daybed (arrived and just need to do it!) Purchase Hudson's Bay blanket(awaiting it's arrival)
- Get the pillow forms for all the daybed pillows
Order the crib!! And crib bedding.(arrived and requires assembly) Select and order a rug(awaiting this one from Rugs USA to arrive) Build the little vintage roadster
- Some DIY art, perhaps the doggie silhouette but of our own puppy!
- Consider adding a mobile above crib??? Not sure on this one!
Oh and of course the styling is going to be the fun part - I pit the books out on the shelves including a couple of 'vintage' ones from my childhood. Hope there will be lots of nights of reading and cuddling with my little guy in this room for years to come :)
Hop here for my breakfast nook update, and of course check out what's happening with the rest of this amazing ORC group here.
