Coming along...
So I borrowed a camera to show you how Amelia's room is coming!


The big projects the last few days have been painting, sewing curtains and going to Chinatown to buy some cute parasols.


These curtains ended up being a much more involved project than I had intended, but I have to admit that I think they're really cute...


Jeff's grandma gave him a couple of really sweet insect watercolors she had made for Christmas that are perfect for this little room.


It's weird to see litle girl clothes hanging up like this, ready to go. This is where I could use some help: The closet is really deep on either side, and I am not sure how to store things like clothes, diapers, etc., so it looks cute, tidy and accessible. Any ideas?

Ariana, the room looks so sweet and girly. I love it! Great job on the curtains.
If you have hanging space you could buy some of the hangable shelves, I think they are for sweaters or something. I've seen them in cute colors at places like Bed, Bath and Beyond. Do you know what I am talking about? We bought some and they worked great for his clothes and diapers, etc..

Ariana, I love what you're doing with that cute little space. And the dresses and little shoes are just too sweet for words.
I got some hanging compartments like the ones annie was talking about at Target. They could be a good option.

The space just glows with those lovely colors. You have a great sense of style. I can't wait to see your little girl.

Very beautiful! I just wish I could see it in person, and my new niece when she arrives!

baskets...I bought a whole bunch when Penny was born at Cost Plus and STILL use them. You can even distribute them around the house...cute, neat and accesible.

Everything is SOOO cute! Make some room in the closet, I have a cute dress just waiting to be worn by Amelia.

Thanks so much for the compliments and suggestions! My plan right now is to build a panel on the side the cradle is in, basically bringing the floor up a couple feet for the cradle to be higher, then putting baskets in the new bottom space to be pulled out like drawers. On the other side, I think I'll use both hanging shelves and try to find a short, wide dresser. to put on the floor there. Have any of you ever put a fold- down diaper changing shelf in?

Wow, I don't remember that closet being that big. Probably because it was crammed with stuff when we lived there. I am sure there are probably other parents out there who used a changing table, but even though I had one with both kids, I always just ended up changing them on the floor. It was so much easier to just plop down and change them, than trying to keep them from squirming around on a table. And when I forgot something I could just go get it and not have to move them to a safer place first.
