Future Nursery: Before (as an office)
It's little, but cozy, and has everything the Lil' Man will need. A place to lay his head (Crib: Graco Freeport), a mobile/projector (found at a consignment sale for $8 new in box--retail would have been $47!), a comfy glider for feedings (from Craiglist--we won't go into the miracle it took to get that beast inside this room), and a lovely window for plenty of natural light. The crab & blowfish print above the crib is from my awesome & crazy-talented friend Naomi, and the two small canvases I painted.
Across the room we have the dresser/changing station, along with a cubby full of toys & books. Not even born yet and already a book hoarder! Totally my child. :) We got a diaper R2-D2 at one of our showers, and I just haven't had the heart to fully break him down...so we'll just keep it there for him to enjoy.
Found some great drawer organizers on Amazon--top right drawer has diapers, wipes, etc, and the top left has newborn & 0-3 month clothes, socks, hats, mittens, etc.
Just a quick closeup of the decor area over near the changing station. The whale is a bank!
A few weeks ago, The Hubs & I went to Firehouse Pottery so we could each make something for our lil' guy. I made the bank, and his dad made that adorable little octopus. Love it!
A closeup of the mirror/net. Thought about adding a bunch more shells & finding some little Feaux crabs, but just these three seemed to flow pretty well.
The "message" inside the bottle is from us to him to discover once he can read. And there's room to add more over the years if we like! (Bottle: $2.99 from At Home)
The room has this little alcove over the closet, and there's an outlet up there--perfect place for our video monitor. And we have a storage tote up there for things we won't need for a while (boxes for things we can resell once he outgrows them, his CARES airplane harness, etc). Closet is full of 3-6 month clothes (like, literally full--people gave us more 3-6 month than anything), and everything bigger than 6 months is in another tote under the crib. And you can kind of see our ridiculous diaper stockpile in the closet--people gave us tons!
Another shot of the nursing area. The blanket was made by my grandmother, and the little pillow is from our wedding.
Now we just need a baby to put in it! (But...just not quite yet. We're okay with letting him bake just a LEEEETLE bit longer.)
