We're at the halftime show of the One Room Challenge and things are moving along quickly. It's amazing how fast time flies when you have a newborn. Although I've been stressing about getting this room done in time, I'm finding it hardest to have the time to sit down and blog about it. Be sure to check out Week 1 and Week 2 to catch up on what's been going on with the Boys Modern Nursery Update. 

This week we removed the wallpaper and prepped the walls and everything was painted. We went with Benjamin Moore's Chantilly Lace. It's not only one of my favorite white paint colors but it matched the white of the Serena & Lily wallpaper perfectly. This room is probably one of the brightest rooms in our house and with everything having a fresh coat of paint it's quickly becoming my favorite room. 

We will be in this house forever but I wonder when this shiplap ever comes down if the next owners will wonder what Zelda is?

It's bittersweet for this guy. This used to be his room and he didn't want to share with his big brother but we gave them a really cool room to make up for it. 

I just love a fresh coat of paint in an old house to make everything look new again. We used BM Chantilly Lace in this room. 

Up next is installing the light fixture

Big brother testing out the rocker. Do you think he'll take over some of the feedings? bahahaha....he says he doesn't have time. 

Bye Bye light fixture!!!

Testing out some current pieces we have. This shelf was my grandmothers and it may have found it's home. Perfect fit for this wall.
