Emmett's Micro Nursery


When we moved into our 120-year-old house almost two years ago, we decided to rent out the upper level as it was already set-up as a seperate apartment complete with kitchen and bathroom.  This left us with one small bedroom on the main level where we live.

Our surprise Baby left us scratching our heads as to where we would put him.  There were ideas like building a wall partition in one of our front rooms to create a small space to converting our enclosed back porch into a nursery to finally saying Heck with it! the bottom drawer will do just fine. I'm kidding. . . but seriously.  Finally we decided to use the 4'x5' closet off our bedroom for our baby's little space.



We spiffed up the micro nursery with some leftover white paint from our bathroom project, carpet remnants from our bedroom remodel, a thrifted baby cradle because nothing else would fit! and an insulated curtain I made.  After Emmett was born and we ruled out all things pink and fluffy, I added some little dude-appropriate accents.  The small space can be a bit of a challenge when it comes to storing his clothes, diapers and other necessities.  Baskets have been my lifesaver and of course that huge old cupboard is pretty awesome as well. 

We love this little space for Emmett.  It's bright and sunshiny in the morning and is perfect for running in to grab him in the morning for cuddles and family time before Adam takes off for work.

  7. Adorable. Once again you've proved that small, simple spaces can be filled up with love, totally up to the brim and running over. It's so true that our possessions or the lack thereof are not what really count. It's our families and those we love and how we love them that matter. Best wishes!
