35 weeks pregnant this week, and I somehow still feel like this nesting stage hasn’t kicked in. So organizing the nursery and washing all the baby clothes to prep for this little babe was a bit tough for me this week. But we did it! And I’m obsessed with the way our nursery is at the moment.

When we first found out that we were pregnant with our fourth. I remember the first thing that came out of Joe’s mouth was “we are going to need a bigger house.” That wasn’t the case for me at all, I have always been comfortable living in small spaces, and I knew that having a shared nursery with this new babe and Xander would be just fine. Because Xander doesn’t even sleep in his room, so why not make the best of it. Right?

Before we got pregnant, The nursery was an office/nursery, so I knew if we managed to move the desk out of the room and get rid of things that we rarely used, like that huge glider that was maybe rocked, once. That we would be able to manage to add another crib and dresser into this room.

To be completely honest with you, I didn’t really have a clue on how well I would be able to maintain so many baby things in such a small room, but after a few weeks of hard decluttering and minimizing of almost everything, even socks, shoes, clothes, toys, etc. I was able to feel a sense of relief knowing I wasn’t coming into a nursery with an abundance of unnecessary things. But if I’m really honest with you, the help of Bed, Bath, and Beyond and all their organizational and storage products, I can maintain a simple nursery which in everything has its own place, and actually serves a purpose.

Trying to find certain storage products that not only fit with my unique style but also helps actually store items I will be using daily was hard for me to grasp and get my hands on. I didn’t really know what I was looking for and no matter how many lists I created, I still came up overwhelmed with sooo many choices. Haha. I’m pretty sure it was just the excitement of spending hours on Bed, Bath, and Beyond, and scrolling through their endless pages of storage possibilities got the best of me. After all, there are so many different choices and ideas out there.

So, here is the official nursery room tour. I really can’t guarantee that it will stay this way for more than a day, because Xander’s curious hands like to grab ahold of anything within his reach. But, I’m so glad I was able to snap these photos during his morning nap today. Haha.

This little white shelf I purchased to originally store in the closet, but It was smaller than expected( I know, I know, dimensions), so adding it to the corner of the room was what we decided on next. I’m so glad we decided to use this shelf in the corner. It turned out just great, and we can store newborn diapers, wipes, and a few washcloths in cute baskets we found over on Bed Bath & Beyond. The handwoven basket that is sitting on the top shelf is probably my favorite item, They came with a set of three, and I have them placed throughout the entire nursery. I also purchased the fabric Storage Bin and the Metal Storage Basket you see pictured on the shelf. I also love the assorted wooden baskets they have on the site.

So, kind of a funny story about the nursery closet. I intended to store the ugly things in the closet, and just have the doors shut 100% of the time. Just a few weeks ago, we were struggling with the closet doors closing without getting stuck to the carpet, and one day- while frustrated with the sliding doors, I accidentally detached both doors and bent the bottom of it, so we had no choice but to take the doors off.

I was so nervous to see how it would be without having closet doors installed, but after deciding to place the changing table into the small space, I am absolutely loving the cleaner feel of the closet overall. I went ahead and got rid of all the plastic kid hangers, and replaced them with the adorable velvet ones, and we are utilizing the space on top for blanket storage, storing Xanders diapers in the huge hand woven basket on top, and for the basic stuff, like the diaper bag and my breast pump. Also, buying drawer organizers for the changing table has been a life changer and keeps things so organized!

This little corner of the nursery will always be my favorite, and obviously the messiest. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. The kids toy shelf is just so cute and colorful and genuinely makes the room so much brighter.

 

 

Ultimately, I just wanted to create a space that was cozy and liveable, I didn’t want a fancy nursery. Just something that would help this busy mama stay organized and simple and I am so thankful for Bed Bath & Beyond, for making organizing and storing so easy and affordable.
