Two Years Late, But Not Too Late

I thought I would share some pictures of the nursery (a word that amuses me to no end) or as it is also known, Amelia's, and soon to be baby's, room. With Amelia, our time, attention, and dollars were focused on getting the room ready, and everything into the room, before she was born. After she was born, the room was more or less a complete disaster. There were bins of too small clothes and clothes to grow into everywhere. After a while I just started throwing everything that didn't fit into clothes baskets in her room. Needless to say, it really wasn't something to show off. This time around, we've put our time, attention, and dollars into organizing so that we can fit two children's worth of items where there was previously only one.

Amelia is still using the crib, but I think she'll be in a twin bed before the year is out. Baby girl #2 will be in a pack'n'play in our room for at least a couple months.

The Changing Area.

The dresser - refinished by Erik. We got the dresser from a thrift store when we were first married. Before Erik refinished it, the dresser was white with light green drawers.

My beautifully organized closet. I heart closetmaid.

And yes that is a hand painted (by me) border around the room. I really love the way it turned out. As a side note, I know I've been tagged twice, and I promise to respond shortly.

Yay I can post a comment! I heart organization (though my house doesn't reflect it). Can't wait to meet LGL#2.

The room and the closet look amazing! The nesting phenomonon really set in. It won't be long now until you are mother of two!
