Our place is only two bedrooms and for six years, we’ve enjoyed having a large office we could both hang out in.
But when we found out we were having a baby, we got to work transforming it into something the baby could hang out in too! And now, it’s finally done and we are so in love with our new space.
We can’t even believe it’s the same room. We love the bright sage walls, the big open floor and the cute little deer!
When you walk into the room, to the left is a closet (half baby/half storage), some shelves and the crib.
To the right of the crib is the changing table/dresser.
All stocked and ready to go! (The teacher of our Newborn Class recommended using Viva Paper Towels and water instead of wipes to avoid diaper rash… so we’re going to give that a try!)
Inside the drawers are all the cute baby clothes, socks and blankets. I am not sure if I like how it’s organized yet, I’m sure that will be a work in progress.
The Diaper Genie and extra diapers are to the right of the changing table.
Next to that, is the matching lamp. We switched out the bulb to be dimmable so we can turn it on at night without waking the baby.
Right under the window is the pull-out sofa for sleepy parents and guests.
And the right side of the room is what’s left of our ‘office’. Paired down to one desk and one shelf. (Used to be two HUGE L-Shaped desks and four sets of shelves!)
We still have our printer and some computer parts that spilled over onto the baby’s book shelf, but for now, it still works.
The only thing left to do in the room is hang some decorations above the crib/changing table. It looks a little bare at the moment, but I have big plans. I’ll unveil as soon as it’s done!
For the first 2-3 months, the baby will be sleeping in our room in a pack & play.
Also stocked with diapers and wipes!
Technically, we have 15 days until the due date, but my doctor doesn’t think I’ll make it that long. We’ll see!!!

Love it!!! I love the deer theme and the beautiful green walls….so calming. We put night lights in the baby’s room and it works wonders with not waking him up during nighttime changes and feeds.
Oh, good idea!! We have to pick some of those up! Thanks!
🙂 when you said big desk the other night, you really meant big desk! i love the nursery!!!

Wow, I can’t believe it’s the same room! You are so ready – have a wonderful and relaxing holiday weekend!
