Here is our weird little secret: the baby will have a home in one of our two master bedroom closets. As I have told you many times before we really downsized with this last move. We lost a bedroom, lots of square footage, and lots of storage space. So, the baby will stay in the master bedroom with Scott and I until he can sleep through the night. Then he gets to share a room with his big sister. We don't plan on this house being our forever home. When our kids are old enough that sharing a room with someone of the opposite sex might be weird we will reassess our living situation. Back to the point, yes... we are going to have a baby in the closet. It is a fairly big closet- not quite a walk-in but much deeper than a normal closet. I am going to dress it up and I hope to make it feel like a cozy little (teeny tiny) room. The doors to the closet will be open most of the time, maybe always. I know this is not a traditional sleeping arrangement but it is what will work for us and we are OK with that.
I am still going to dress the closet up like it is an actual nursery even though it will pretty much only fit the crib inside it.
I ordered enough of this fabric to cover the back wall of the
I bought this cute crocheted fish mobile off Etsy:
I have some shelves going up on one of the side walls and the other side wall will have a bunch of frames with random pictures... not sure exactly what yet. There might be some laura-made fish art or some fish illustrations from kids books.
There might even be a couple of Cora-made art going up! These days, I have quite the collection to pick from.
Scott painted the walls grey, but there will be lots of fun colors to make it more fun! I'm getting excited!
