Guest Room to Nursery :: Week 0

I was hoping to get after transforming our second guest room into Marcus's nursery when the biannual six-week One Room Challenge was going on in April, but obviously that didn't happen. Fortunately, the ORC happens twice a year, and I'm jumping on the next one, starting October 3rd, to get this nursery transformation going! The… Continue reading Guest Room to Nursery :: Week 0
