Nursery Progress.. What is left? (ORC Week 4)

The fourth week of work on the Nursery is coming to an end and I can finally see light at the end of the tunnel! (Yes, the actually challenge is on week 5, but I started a week later than everyone else!)

This week I crackle finished my flea market boat oars and hung them:
I also made this nautical flag artwork and custom clothesline frame but I haven't posted about it yet.

I painted the pine bookcase so it fit better in the space:

And finally, I bought new sheets and sewed up a simple new bedskirt for the crib.

The end result was this:

And this:

So what do I still have left?

A lot of people said that this photo (from my week 3 progress reveal)  looks "finished" but there are a few things that still bug me:

1. The rocker/glider is minty green gingham and has to be changed.
2. The small pine side table needs a facelift
3. The frames are empty and need artwork
4. I want to add some color to my plain white curtains (a variation on this):

I also want to deal with my boring old closet doors:

I have come a long way.  And THE BIG REVEAL is going to be NEXT WEEK!!!
I am so excited! I can't wait for it to be totally done!

    you needed within easy reach but then, there was no space to do actual work. I
    think having small storage containers to the side makes it easier to keep a
