We decided to make our guest room into a shared nursery. We weren’t quite ready to give up our guest room completely, but we also didn’t think it would work for the boys to share a room yet. The space is a little crowded and Nash’s section is literally just a nook of the room, but we made it work. I actually rearranged the furniture and put the crib together the day before Nash was born. Maybe that was what put me into labor! Talk about finishing just in time though. I tried to coordinate the baby items with what we already had in the room so it’s nothing too cute or exciting, but I added a few things to make it more nursery-like.
I couldn’t find a crib sheet in the color I wanted, so we made our own over the holidays (by “we” I mean I picked out the fabric and my mom did all the sewing).
This mobile turned out to be a nightmare to make, but I love the end result! I thought it would be a simple afternoon project but it ended up taking much longer. The strands got completely tangled while in production, I had to completely disassemble the entire thing and re-glue all of the circles when they kept falling off, and it took two entire movies just to tie the ribbons on. I thought about throwing it away several times. It truly was a labor of love.
We squeezed in the rocking chair and made the dresser into a makeshift changing table.
Voila, Nash’s nook! Now if I could only paint the walls…
