Blake's Room

We've come a long way in Blake's room and it is (almost) done! Here is where we started: a very small room that was over crowded with a ton of stuff. For the last few years this became the room to throw things in that didn't have anywhere else to go. Messy!
 This room is really too small for the large crib, dresser, and rocking chair. So I thought putting the dresser in the closet would help. The dresser is 4 foot across and closet opening is also 4 feet so it was a TIGHT fit, but it worked!
So to set up the room the walls went from blue to green to go with the baby bedding my mom made when Rebecca was born. The dresser went in the closet which got new shelves and a hanger rod. And finally, all the stuff that didn't belong in Blake's room found a new home in the basement.

Sadly there is no other place to put those totes except next to the crib - oh, well. I don't think Blake will mind.  I love how the closet turned out with the extra shelves for storage. The only thing I want to add is something above the crib. I am thinking of a framed picture of Blake and a large wooden B. Some day I will get on that :)

  1. I love the painted wall in the closet and the shelves and baskets there. We are trying to figure out how to fit everything including the rocking chair into our current office for baby too. I think you did a GREAT job with the space.
