The Nursery

Or... well, the future nursery.

Some of you have been asking, and this weekend I finally got it cleared out enough to actually tell what sort of room it is at the moment.

First, I'll share what the room looked like 2 years ago when we were handed the keys:

Small and boring, right?

So we spiced it up and turned it into a studio/craft room/extra guest room/Mel's room... but mostly it was just a storage room. Yikes.

Please excuse the bad lighting...

Well, now that we've installed a new closet system into the guest bedroom closet, I was able to finally take advantage of all that wonderous storage space and clean out the bedroom a bit.

Much better, right?

Yeah, we thought so, too.

We've got a long ways to go in here - and we're excited! (I find it's always good to actually be excited about a project before tackling it headfirst - it's much more fun and wayyy less painful that way!)

First up - selling the couch. If you live near Omaha, Nebraska and are interested in our near-perfect condition red leather couch/sleeper with storage space underneath, just contact me and I'll let you know when the Craigslist ad goes up.

In other news... we've already purchased a big piece of furniture for the nursery. Any guesses as to what it is? (and no cheating if you already know!)

  1. Wow that room already looks so much better than when you guys bought the house! It looks like the perfect room for a nursery, and I can't wait to see your ideas. I'm guessing you bought a crib...

  2. I'm gonna go with...dresser?? With crib as my back-up answer. : )

    The room looks great now! I wish I could keep our whole house looking perfect/usable all the time but it's just not possible. Our guest room is our catch-all-crap room.


We love and read all comments, but please no spam, hateful/hurtful comments, drama or bashing. Thank you!
