We have two kids now. Soooo…we decided we needed a three bedroom. But we have a two bedroom. We needed to make our space work for us and fast! It only took three days and under one hundred dollars to transform a spare closet into a nursery for Baby Emilie! I must say we are pretty pleased with the results and did everything on a dime. Our fabulous friend, Mahnee, sewed the quilt and curtains faster than a speeding bullet and all we bought was a cozy rug and some fabric. We are feeling very New York-y and industrious. Hooray!! PS. Please don’t judge me for putting my kid in the closet. It is only a temporary solution. She sleeps really well in there. And there’s a window…
BEFORE: A large utility closet used to be a catch all for the vacuum cleaner, kid stuff, and to-dos. We had to relocate everything to prepare for the new nursery!
AFTER: A cozy rug, new lighting and some hand-made curtains did the trick on a dime!
We added a few toys and dolls to make it a bit cozier.
Amazing what a carpet can do to warm up a space!
Any creative uses for your closets? Share, please!

So cute and cozy. Given their prior womb home, babies probably find a small space like this very comforting.
Outrageously cute and smart! You’ve done it again! … and Emile will have stories to tell.
