We partially made it through another One Room Challenge, y’all! We may not have made it to the finish line, but we still finished and that’s a win in my book. I’m so excited to share this Eclectic Gender Neutral Nursery with y’all! It was so much fun to create a space that wasn’t gender specific and gave me so many butterflies imagining what our sweet little baby would be.

If you want to go back and catch up on some of the previous updates on the gender neutral nursery remodel – here are the links.

Week 1 // Week 2 // Week 3 // Week 4 // Week 5


Of course we have to remember what this room looked like before (post guest room when we purchased the house).

This room had so much potential and I couldn’t wait to get started on it as soon as we put in an offer on the house.


This room served as a guest bedroom for the longest time which has been so nice when our family and friends come to visit. We just love having room to host!

However, this space slowly morphed into the catch all room. We all have either a catch all room, closet, drawer…you name it! See that clear bin right there? Well, that’s all the items I’ve attempted to sell on Poshmark that I just haven’t had the time to sell. AKA I hoard everything.


Wow, wow, wow, is all I can say about how this space turned out! There wasn’t any huge cosmetic changes except touching up some holes and chipped paint on the walls. But, this once guest room is now a dreamy eclectic gender neutral nursery for our little one. I worked on this project up until our sweet little one was born…meaning 9 months pregnant and still pulling out the power tools!

We re-used Liv’s crib from Million Dollar Baby Classic since she’ll be transitioning into a toddler room here soon (cue the water works!). The rod iron crib gives the room a modern eclectic feel while keeping a bit of nostalgia as we pass down the crib to our second child.

Can you believe this dresser was an IKEA Tarva Dresser Hack?! It only cost me $60 in supplies to turn this once plain pine dresser into the cane dresser of my dreams! I found a dresser in Australia that I fell in love with, but $1199 for a dresser just wasn’t in the budget and neither was the $800 shipping/custom fees. So, of course in true Kourtni fashion I DIY’d my little heart out to make this come to life. (DIY IKEA Tarva Dresser Hack Tutorial – coming soon!)

The caning was on back order for months! I truly thought it wasn’t going to get here in time. I purchased the amount I needed in August and it shipped to our house at the end of October!

I incorporated these 2 sets of prints (Set 1, Set 2) to remind us of places that our family has been and grown from throughout the years. I had to add some palm trees to bring in that little bit of Southern California feel for our Tennessee babies!

We can’t forget about the gorgeous rocker from Modern Nursery! My entire design was set around this rocker for it’s modern take on a nursery rocking chair.

Eek! Can you just feel how soft this rug is from Loloi Rugs through the screen!? It was the first thing we put in the nursery and I just could not stop staring at the vintage style faded pattern.

We can’t forget all the real plants I had to add to the nursery y’all! It wouldn’t be a true makeover without the little plant touches with all the little newborn clothes.

Y’all knew I was building another DIY Barn Door and this simple modern barn door was perfect for the space. I stained it the same color as the IKEA Tarva Dresser Hack and they flow so well together. I didn’t want one competing piece in the space so a subtle barn door was perfect for this space. The Emtek Barn Door Hardware was the perfect color and size for this small doorway. I really wanted the tradition barn door hardware but a bit larger to create more of statement for the simple barn door. (DIY Simple Barn Door – coming soon!)  

You can even peep the the Jack and Jill Bathroom Remodel we did when I was pregnant with Liv!

All of the natural touches to this space just made my heart pitter patter. In every space I create I put so much love and life into it. I wanted to create a space that would be perfect for a little boy or little girl. Including a few vintage finds and DIY’d pieces to create the perfect eclectic feel.

Thanks for all your support along the way and for helping me make decisions! I hope y’all love our Eclectic Gender Neutral Nursery as much as we do! Cheers to another SOMEWHAT successful One Room Challenge in the books 😉
