Are you ready to get picture happy? We have been living in our cozy-cave-of-a-bedroom most days with our little man since the day we cam home from the hospital. We emerge for an adventure a few times a week, but stick to the room with the big bed most of the time. We edited our master bedroom to be more Atlas friendly. To be honest, I am not ready to let my little guy be a big guy and sleep in his own room yet, so we yanked the crib out of the nursery and redid our space to be a family space for a while.
The changes we made were simple, and made life a lot easier. I added a small work station, so I can get things done while bebe sleeps. My office is a level down and across the house – way too far incase our little one awakes with a sad face.
The crib fit nicely in our oversized room, and it doesn’t feel smushed at all. We even got to keep the sitting area by the fireplace!
We hid a small mini-fridge in the corner, and it’s been such a treat to have bottled water for us or a quick stash of breastmilk waiting right there. Sometimes it feels like we live in a tiny NYC apartment again. We can go a whole day without leaving the room, and we have totally had pajama days when atlas was teeny tiny.
If you missed the progression of our bedroom, here are some projects that we did to make the space our own:
- We refinished the fireplace, and it was so simple and cheap!
- We built the bed in a three part series look here, then go back for the how-to.
- If I repot something, it dies – so I discovered a simple trick!
- For $1 + $10 we made our instagram pics look like a million bucks!
- The dreamcatcher makes me & Atlas smile + it’s so simple to make.
- That’s not wallpaper!
Enjoy the tour!
