It's week four of the One Room Challenge and things are getting real serious up in here folks! Other than the initial painting in the room, things have been fairly mellow with the updates, these last few weeks are bringing some of the biggest changes to the space-so exciting! This week we added some new lighting. A new ceiling light that more closely matched the vibe in the space was installed, and of course a dimmer, because in my opinion, almost ever room should have a dimmer so you can adjust the lighting as the mood dictates (including bleary eyed sleepy mom/I don't want a bright light shining in my face mood).
As you might have noticed in the photo we also got the changing table in the space. It's a vintage chest of drawers from France and has the coolest rounded corners....and is the PERFECT size for the changing pad. We'll be creating a custom changing pad box for the top and making some repairs to the top where the veneer has peeled away but other than that it's the perfect height and size for the space and it balances out all the modern pieces that we've been adding to the space.
How cute is that hardware?!
And those rounded corners! Be still my heart!
The great thing about this piece (and what so many of you mentioned as well) is that once the little one is out of the diaper stage, this piece can easily be converted back into a dresser, it would also be equally at home in a foyer/entry as a drop spot with storage, it's a really versatile piece overall, always a plus.
Also in lighting we received this sexy little new floor lamp from Article. It's the perfect height over the rocker and operates with a foot switch, perfect for parents with a babe in arms. It has a great copper accent to it and I love how the modern lines are juxtaposed against the more traditional feel of the paint and moldings.
We got the rocker in place as well, this one is great because it has a tall back for the tall parents to be and the ends of the rocker legs are very minimal, which allows it to tuck nicely into this corner of the room. Article's bamba pouf gives some subtle texture to the space and a place to prop up your feet, and it's another versatile piece for when kiddos get older.
Since I'm writing this post a bit late, we just completed the built-in daybed that was in the original plans, I'll be sharing the progress on it coming up later this week, it's looking so good! The final reveal will be May 10th, so stay tuned!!!
