I will admit, this is not the most exciting post ever. I have not completely finished the "nursery" yet (I don't know if I will ever be 'finished' decorating any space we ever live in), and I hope to add some newborn photos, maybe a family picture in Fox's closet, and possibly a mobile (if you have any good ideas for a cute mobile that we can do on the cheap, let me know), but I am pretty happy with it for now. It is clean, simple (and super dark most of the time) and I love our crib! (To see part 1, click here)
A few things we did to make this mini-nursery work:
1. We bought a mini-crib. We were originally going to use a pack-n-play, but when I came across a
mini-crib on the internet, I was hooked, and we love the one we have. It gives a nice sense of
permanence to the space.
2. We stacked some drawer units that we had already on top of each other. This gave us a little more
storage in his closet and lets us keep all our baby stuff with the baby, rather than having it spill
over into our room (there is still some baby stuff around our apartment, but a lot less).
3. We added an extra shelf above the original shelf in the closet, which gave us more storage space to
keep clothes that he doesn't fit in yet.
4. Currently, we keep a few flat things under his crib (the travel bed we will be taking to Europe and
a largish baby blanket) under the bed to utilize the storage space better. We also keep his small
laundry basket in the closet.
We will probably need to move the Fantastic Mr. Fox pictures once he gets big enough to flip around and pull them off the wall, but I am enjoying having them up right now. This closet is a great fit for him, and we love having him nice and close to us. I would love to hear if you have done something like this for your baby. We love a good closet nursery, and would love to see or hear about yours! Happy Friday!
