They came, they saw, they took away...

(Most of) my living room furniture has been hauled off to a new home in a friend's basement. YAY! They'll have to come back next weekend to get the sofa, but I am just happy that they were willing to take it. All that;s left in the living room now is the sofa, the arm chair (which no one wants..) and the little IKEA loveseat that was stored in the nursery (still need to find a home for  that one).

After moving the loveseat out of the nursery, I started thinking about what my mom had said- why did we need to get rid of the  dresser? If it could fit in the room with a twin bed, it can fit with a crib. So I got to thinking about how to arrange the dresser, glider, and crib (which we don;t have yet). I even got Adam to help move it around. I didn't think it would work, but a little shifting and tucking the glider into the corner, I think everything will fit just fine.
crib will go along the back wall

I was set against having the dresser- we don't need it, at least for now anyway- and I didn't need it for a changing table since I have always changed babies on the floor. But Adam pointed out that the dresser was the perfect height to change the baby, and there was no way he was going to change a diaper on the floor. So for now we keep it. We'll possibly remove the mirror, scrape off the tile (that I applied when I was about 16), sand and paint it. But we'll see. For now I'm just glad I have a few less things to worry about before baby arrives.


  1. You're going to need a dresser sooner than you think! They outgrow clothes so fast, its just easier to have the next few sizes on deck. :)

    I LOVE the color of the walls! Its so beautiful!

    1. I realize now that my 0-3 /3-6 month drawer is pretty full, having a second dresser will be very helpful.

      And the paint was a $5 oops can from Home Depot- couldn't be happier with it!

  2. No way - an oops can?! Its fabulous. What a great find!


I'd love to hear what you think!
