ORC Week 3 - Progress in the Safari Glam Nursery


I can't believe we're half-way there and I still need to do so much!

Well mainly, the waiting on the carpet is killing me, I ordered it from Lowe's and since we live way out here, far from the city, it's taking forever to get the materials we need!

Which is one of these colors from Stainmaster

On a positive note, we've got paint...

HUGE difference, made the room more welcoming and brighter

And we've got LIGHTS!

Well, bought them at least. ;-)
Got both from Lowe's. My swing-arm wall sconces was a steal at $31!!! Not the right finish, but I'm sure a can of spray paint can spruce it up more since I want it in GOLD finish just like my accent Wall Paper.
I also decided to go with a ceiling fan  as always like in the other bedrooms, I just think it's more practical to have and most ceiling fans don't look too bad right now.

Speaking of wall paper, before I ended up choosing Oh Joy! Petal Pusher Wall paper in gold

 I was also seriously considering these...

Rifle Paper Co. Safari Blush

Water Color Peony Wallpaper from Anthropologie
Great Meadow Mural from Anthropologie
All of these are equally gorgeous I think, But in the end, my love for his wallpaper ruled my decision.

Now, I just have to find someone who can put it up for me! Wish me luck on that!

Also this arrived in the mail recently...

You can follow me on IG HERE

Always wanted a Juju hat in our home, and now I have the perfect spot (would also make an awesome head dress for Halloween someday too;-))!
I got it from AFRICANART.COM, it's the most inexpensive price I could find (super fast FREE shipping too, got mine in 2 days) so if your on a look out for one, check the site out!

I also found this...

Isn't it pretty?
I found it at a local Antique store and I just love all the colors plus it's made of fabric - I love the details!
I'm planning to put this above the changing table,

So far we've crossed out some on our list:

1) Clear up the room of course
2) Change the carpet - we haven't changed it since we moved
3) Paint the room white and the trim in a contrasting color
4) Change the ceiling fan
5) Add hard-wired wall sconces
6) Put up the wall paper on the crib wall
7) Update the window treatments - if my budget allows 
8) Paint her closet

Have you checked in on the other participant's progress yet?
I'm sure I will, so many great rooms in the making!

Have a Great Weekend!
