The Nursery Makeover Part 1

Posted on

Cameron and I have a one-bedroom apartment here in DC. Here is the basic layout of our bedroom BEFORE putting the crib together:

Today, our friends Helen and Jesse came over to help!
Helen and I went through the piles of baby stuff that I’ve already gotten (before any showers):

We organized stuff by basic size (NOT the size on the tags, as I’ve heard that isn’t always accurate). So far I have two drawers of stuff, plus a bin that will go under the bed for “other” (toys, bibs, and so on).

While Helen and I were in the living room organizing, the boys were in the bedroom, assembling the crib and rearranging stuff.

Here’s Jesse helping to get things going:

After much deliberation, we decided on the following arrangement!

Here’s my handsome husband next to the finished crib (sans mattress):

And here’s the two of us before we broke for dinner and The Office!

Today was just organizing and rearranging. Once we have a baby shower or two, I’ll hopefully have some decor for that space, and I’ll post more pictures then!

Thanks to Helen and Jesse for their 4 hours of hard work on a Saturday!
