Our building is nearly 100 years old and the closet space is incredibly limited. My husband had been using one of our larger closets as an office and then it became the dumping ground for a bunch of stuff when he no longer needed the home office space.
I had planned on turning it into my little dream closet, but then Phoebe came along and our journey with co-sleeping was ending and I was not ready to move her all the way downstairs into her sister’s room quite yet.
I decided to take that 31 square feet closet and create a little space for Phoebe.
I asked Phoebe’s godmother, Michelle Workman, if she would be willing to design her room with me. I was so excited when she said yes.
Starting from a family heirloom painting which inspired the room’s theme, Michelle picked items from The Land of Nod and directed me on paint colors for the walls and dresser. I found a dresser on Craigslist for 20 dollars and painted it. We used her sister’s crib. The room finally came together after some hurdles and I am so happy to get to share it with you now.
