When we moved in, we decided that the computer room (the man room) would become the nursery when a baby came along. We painted it a nice green that we figured would work well in the future because lets face it, I hate painting. And yes, this does mean that Seth is losing "his" room. Don't feel bad for him. Its not like I have a room just full of my shit and don't say "the whole house is the woman's domain," because Seth has had a hand in every single color/design/decorating decision in that house.
So back to the point, Seth thought it would be a good idea to start with a dresser since we will eventually need some place to put all the stuff that comes along with a baby. So dresser hunting we went! We were looking for a pretty specific size (about 3" tall, 4" long, and 2" wide), so choices were limited. Finally, we found a sweet little Ethan Allen piece at my favorite consignment shop, The Red Collection.
Once home, we went to moving furniture around.
To start, lets take a moment to remember the man room as it was:

So back to the babies room... In went the dresser:

So there you have: the first edition of making room for baby. To finish the room we still need a crib, mattress, bookshelf, and chair of some sort (glider or rocking?). I also plan to make curtains, a crib skirt, and fashion up some new lighting. Stay tuned as there will be more baby updates to come (as well as some non-fetus related posts as well- I promise!)
