161 days until we have a tiny human to take care of – ahhh! So what do I think about when I wake up in the middle of the night? Organizing our house and decorating the nursery of course! Ben asked me if there’s anything we could do this weekend so I’ll be less stressed. Love him!
I will be donating my get-ready room to our baby. This was a no-brainer because it’s the most climate controlled room in the house and the quietest since it’s an interior room. My beloved leaning mirror will move to the guest bedroom.
Pretty much all of the furniture will be cleared out of this room except for one dresser. This was my childhood furniture growing up and I plan to paint or refinish one of them for storage/a changing table. Where will all those books and the filing cabinet go? I have no clue.
Here’s the other dresser. We’ll be adding a crib and a comfy nursing rocker of some sort. New curtains, bedding, a rug… so much to do!
Even though this is the most organized closet in our house, it will need to be completely cleaned out (apparently babies wear clothes) and its contents transferred to the guest bedroom. No big deal, right?
Wrong! How do I describe this monstrosity? This is our luggage/boxes of books/extra clothes/crafts/staging items/bedding/my wedding dress/junk closet. I wouldn’t be surprised to find a kitchen sink in there somewhere!
There’s not a lot of extra space for furniture in this room, but we will definitely need to add a dresser on this wall between the doors. This will remain our guest bedroom which will definitely be needed for lots of company after baby comes. I don’t want to crowd it, but we’re running out of space people!
Ben the hen’s closet in our master bedroom will need a good cleaning out as well. I would love to get everything off the floors of all of our closets if possible. Lots of this stuff needs to go live in the storage shed.
Can you believe when we moved into our house 8.5 yrs ago that we didn’t have a single thing to put in here? We didn’t even own a lawn mower! I’m thinking an industrial shelf could do wonders for organizing this space.
The weather forecast for this weekend is rain, rain and more rain, so we’ll probably be sticking to inside organization. Wish us luck! I’ll be back next week to
make sure we aren’t couch potatoes all weekend report our success.
