Even in a small room, it’s tempting to go all out with decorations like cute throw pillows and blankets. But in the name of safe sleep, skip the extra bells and whistles on the crib.
It’s these belongings that like your children must find new purpose in your home. Not only will the projects invigorate this new chapter of life but also the fun quirky redesigning you can establish with your old furniture will fill your nest with some more unique DNA.
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.
To save space and maximize storage, reimagine your changing area. Turn the bottom of the changing table into storage. Or forego the changing table altogether and turn your baby’s dresser into a changing area (or your dresser if your room is functioning as the nursery. You can even purchase a crib-top changing table, which is a little changing area that rests securely on top of the crib. When you’re not using it, store it under the crib.
