Step By Step Nursery: Storage

Slowly but surely, the nursery for my little guy is coming together. Today, we completed the pegboard storage system. I couldn't be more excited about it! This, of course, was a Pinterest inspired project.

My husband is somewhat apprehensive about making changes to our home - mostly, with putting holes in the wall. When I brought up the baby's nursery (at about 20 weeks along), I could hear the concern in his voice while listening to my thoughts. I knew that, since we knew a boy was on the way, I had to choose the right "theme" so the hubs would go along with the idea. In the end, there isn't really a "theme." It's a few random ideas thrown together.

I think the idea that the husband likes best was the pegboard storage. He was so excited when we finally installed pegboard in the garage - I knew he'd go for it in the baby's room. And he did. While he was at work, the baby and I took a trip to the Home Depot to gather our supplies. I was so excited to have a storage system in place. We had been using the ugliest pink basin to store diapers, wipes, and butt cream. It came home with us from the hospital, and worked, it just wasn't attractive!

I got the pegboard up during nap one afternoon, and put some baskets up as well. And it sat like that for about a month. Maybe two. Then, I cut and hung the trim. That took place during another nap time. Then, today, during yet another nap, I completed the pegboard (by painting the trim, hanging the G and putting the baskets back).

What do you think?

Finalmente, the pegboard storage is complete. Another step toward finishing Kid's room.

At this rate, the room will be complete by the time he graduates high school!

  1. Nice work! I think I have that same g hanging on Georgia's wall.
