Whimsical Nursery Reveal
Whew, these 8 weeks really snuck up on my y’all, but we made it..barely. Room transformations are definitely my love language because they are projects inside of projects, & I love a project! This Winnie The Pooh nursery room renovation has been a really special one because it’s for my sister’s first baby.
For those of you who don’t know, the One Room Challenge is an 8-week room renovation challenge hosted by Better Homes & Gardens. Twice a year, some extremely talented bloggers get together to tackle one room & complete an entire renovation in 8 weeks. It’s stressful but also a whole lotta fun!
BEFORE WE EVER PARTICIPATED IN THE ONE ROOM CHALLENGE WE DID A PRACTICE RUN IN OUR OFFICE, THEN OUR FIRST REAL CHALLENGE WAS THE LAUNDRY ROOM MAKEOVER, FOLLOWED BY THE NURSERY & OUR LAST CHALLENGE WAS OUR GARAGE!

Let’s recap what we were working with!
Just a plain space ready to be made new!
Here was our design board for the space!
- Install New Light Fixture
- Built-In Closet Shelving
- Make Winnie The Pooh Canvas Art
- Book Page Letter Project
- Paint Mural
- Add Swing
- Upcycle Changing Table (almost done!)
- Put Together New Furniture
Lets see if we got it all done!
This little corner is my favorite part of the whole room! If you followed along with us on Instagram you saw that my mom painted that tree completely freehand & I took way to many turns testing out the swing. The dresser got transformed into a changing table & is now ready to hold all the cute baskets & baby things.
Remember what the closet looked like…
After we got rid of the wire shelving it was time to install beautiful built-in shelving! This is my favorite method for adding custom closet shelving & its the same one we used when we renovated Eli’s nursery closet.
Those cute little honey bees & pots are just a sweet little extra touch. I used my Cricut machine to cut the images out on vinyl & just stuck them to the wall. It is a little faux wallpaper trick that saves lots of money! The closet rods are made out of wood & stained to match the floor. There is something so sweet about little baby clothes hanging up.
This is a budget-savvy canvas art project to tie in our Winnie the Pooh theme a bit more. We used the Cricut machine to cut out vinyl quotes for each canvas & used Command Strips to hang them over the changing table. You can buy blank canvas for pretty cheap at Hobby Lobby & Michaels for your own DIY art project!
The new fan we installed is perfection! It came from Wayfair & I love how rustic meets
The rug we chose is nice & plush & reminds me of a beehive which fits our theme perfectly.
Is it even a nursery if we don’t have the new baby’s name spelled out in sweet wall art?! This project was fun but time-consuming one. I took wooden letters from Michales & used Mod Podge to glue pages from Winnie the Pooh to them. Sounds super simple & it is but getting the pages to match up perfectly was a bit of a struggle y’all! Totally worth it though because don’t they look so stinkin cute?!
I could not be happier with how this room came out y’all! The only thing missing is our rocking chair which didn’t make it in time for the reveal, but I will definitely update y’all when it finally makes its appearance! Sweet Luka is going to love his new room I have no doubt & I am so honored my sister let us come in & create such a fun space for them.
We had a long list of To-Do’s for this room & I think this is the first time in the history of ever that they all got done! It was a lot of work & we definitely ran into some issues but all in all, I am calling this one room challenge a success! Normally I am not a theme person but this one is the cutest.
Let me know what y’all think about this nursery reveal & any guesses on what our next room renovation will be (of course I already have it planned ?)
