As an adult with experience in a situation like this, I can tell you that the next project is totally worth your efforts. What experience? Crawling in the crib myself to sooth a young crying lad of two. I don’t know what was worse; A.) The idea of climbing in, B.) The act of climbing in, C.) The fear of getting stuck, or D.) The fear of the crib collapsing… which would leave my sister-in-law bereft of the opportunity to complete this project come ten years down the road.
If the idea of turning your closet into a nursery nook sounds unappealing, check out the Lushome collection of small nurseries created right in master bedrooms. Here are practical tips and inspirations that may be useful for your bedroom redesign and redecorating.
For months, perhaps years, the rails of your standard one-sided drop crib had been used to keep your child inside, and away from harm. The crib wasn’t only their sleeping empire; it was their Crib, to use MTV terminology. It was their home. But now that no fuzzy wrapped baby is lying within it’s gated confines, you’ll be surprised how many versatile purposes the crib can have for your crib.
Mount a stylish rod on the wall to hang clothes, or install a hook to hang a laundry bag or canvas bag full of toys. Pegboard is another great way to organize all sorts of baby necessities. You can also use the walls to store all those stuffed animals your little one will inevitably collect. Buy a net (or two!) to hang in the corner to keep your baby’s teddies and dolls cozy and contained.
