Creating A Nursery In Your Master Bedroom, When Baby Doesn’t Have A Room

We recently turned my walk-in closet in our master bedroom into Beatrice’s nursery, because we are fresh out of bedrooms. Fortunately she is small and wonderful and momma was happy to give up her closet to store something so much sweeter!

After removing all my stuff out and tearing out that *sniff, sniff* built-in shoe display shelf, Mike went to work covering up the hideous pink walls and ceiling. Yes, you read that right, ceiling. Our whole house used to be pink from floor-wall-ceiling. That is a lot of pink. We never bothered with the closets because lets be real, the closets were the least of our concern.

But I wanted to create a real nursery for Bea, so out goes the pink and in goes the City Loft color that we are obsessed with.

Fortunately, the space is so small it didn’t take much to make a statement. We painted, updated the light fixture, and added her crib and some lovely decor. Take a look!

I found this pretty book of herbs and knew that these prints would be perfect for Bea’s bungalow!

I do want to specifically point out that darling wood print of a bumble bee and the letter “B,” made by our friend Ashley. It is so beautifully done, and was the most thoughtful gift.

I love Bea’s new room. I love that she has her own quiet space. And while it may be small, it’s perfect for her and our current stage of life. I love that we made our space work without fundamentally changing our home. It can be difficult, to be sure, that we are all living on top of each other. And the struggle to get some sleep can be real when all five of us end up in one room at one point or another throughout the night. But it’s also kind of sweet. I love having my babies close.

But make no mistake. I also love having a space to put them with a door that closes ;-).
