|The changing station|
The room is small and doesn’t have a lot of wall space so we had to get creative with how we arranged the furniture. This changing area has plenty of storage thanks to the plastic drawers and baskets. The frame on the wall has a Roald Dahl quote in it along with the crocheted mobile.
|A place to sit and rest|
The room has a rather annoying sloped ceiling with two big doors that open up to the storage space in the eaves of the house. That made it really hard to fit everything we wanted / needed in the room but we did the best we could. I would love to slip cover this chair at some point but for now its a comfortable place to sit and cuddle with a baby. The crocheted blanket was the first thing I made for The Rookie and I love the way it looks on the back of the chair. We hung the flannel airplane blanket on the closet door to add a little spice to another wise boring area.
|multi-purpose room…Hi Fenway!|
|Another corner full of stuff…baby’s have a lot of stuff|
This is the second piece of the sloped ceiling, yet another hard space to work with. The dresser is actually empty. We ended up storing all The Rookies clothes in the plastic drawers by the changing table and the closet. We are planning on selling the dresser to free up some space in the room. The diaper holder that came with the crib bedding is hanging from the window with a stuffed raccoon peaking out. Diaper holders seem a bit silly to me but this was a fun way to add color and a bit of a surprise. The moses basket has various baby carriers in it and we added a little tribute to her nickname with the Red Sox storage box, a history of Fenway Park book, and a mini Louisville Slugger.
Now all thats left to do is wait for The Rookie to get here so she can see it for herself!
