It doesn't take me long to put my husband to work.
We have a 3 bedroom house, so one might assume that there is plenty of room for a guest room and nursery, however, I work from home, so one whole bedroom is tied up in Girls on the Run.
THE GREATEST PACKAGE EVER arrived! Our dear friend Tiffany gifted us with a crib! I registered for the crib expecting that we would set it up once the baby was 4 months old or so. By then our steady stream of guests would wane and we would lose our guest room and maybe invest in a pull-out couch. But receiving that crib today put me in serious nesting mode! I WANT a nursery! Not to mention our bedroom is being outgrown with the glider, the bassinet, and soon a full baby wardrobe. Where would I put all those clothes?! And the diapers and the gazillion other gadgets babies need! Sure, our sweet little girl will sleep with us for the first few months, but where would we find room for all her stuff?!
Of course I'm being a little over dramatic here in making fun of myself for buying into this "a 7 pound baby needs more clothes than I do" mentality. In all honesty, I'm sure I could raise a healthy, happy baby on very little, fortunately we will not have to. We have been so blessed by generous family and friends! Our little girl already has so much. I have to say hand-me-downs are my very best friends!
Well back to the project at hand. Luckily for our budget, this one cost a total of $10 for a new roller and pan to paint and a few bits of hardware. We are able to reuse everything we already own to create a new office in an unexpected space. Our inspiration:
The new office closet will hopefully free up enough space in the room for the bed and nightstand for our guests. And this will free up an entire bedroom just for baby! And then yet another project will begin!
