One of the main projects we really needed to tackle before the baby came was adding a closet-type unit in the nursery. To refresh your memory from my post back in November, I was aiming for something like this:
So a few weeks ago, we trekked out to Lowe's and after some much needed cleaning, we were finally ready to install the new shelving.
and since Kevin won't let me help, like, at ALL, I sat idly by and gave him installation instructions. After several hours of measuring, leveling, cutting and drilling, we were done.
While I didn't take any progress pictures, I was so very glad to get rid of the way my "closet" used to look...
We now have an entire wall unit that will not only fit all of the babies clothes, but mine as well.
Please ignore them mess of wires peaking out from underneath the cabinet. We still haven't figured out what we'll do to hide the modem and router for our internet.
We purchased two dark blue fabric shower curtains instead of traditional curtains mainly because they were about half the price and I knew they would be the right size without having to measure. My house is pretty small so I knew a shower curtain would reach from ceiling to floor without a problem.
In order to hang the curtains, we secured a couple of small white screw hooks into the ceiling and placed the thinnest rod we could find on them. I think it worked out pretty well! I know we rigged the whole thing but it suits us and serves it's purpose.
My side of the closet... which obviously needs some organization. And maybe a wardrobe update.
What's a girl gotta do to get a What Not To Wear nomination???
And baby's side of the closet, look at all those teeny clothes!
Seriously, my kid (who isn't even here yet) has more clothes than I do. Look how teeny tiny they all are! I can't wait to dress the little guy up.
I'm glad I can finally check off something that's on our to-do list! Other than the closet unit, we do have the crib built and some shelving up but we're still waiting on the crib mattress and changing table to arrive. D-day will be here before we know it, we gotta get ready!
