Steve & Michelle are working on creating a den for Kit.
Previously, Michelle was using the baby room as her crafting space:
All of Michelle’s stuff has been relocated to the guest bedroom.
So what about decor?
Well, gender-neutral is the name of the game, since we wanted Kit’s gender to be a surprise! Yellow/gray (aka “grellow”) is the color scheme we’re planning. This means we won’t have to change the wall paint!
Michelle is definitely opinionated about decor, and Steve is pretty easy-going with what Michelle dictates.
Some of Michelle’s likes/dislikes:
~LIKES natural fibers (ie, cotton)
~DISLIKES cutesy nursery themes (ie, no ducks/bears/bunnies) – we’re assuming we’ll be spending a fair bit of time in the room, so we want to make sure we like what we’re looking at (and Kit really won’t care for a few years)
~DISLIKES unnecessary items (seriously, who uses a diaper stacker??) – this is key since the space is small!
~LIKES making handmade items (that is, if she can get past the early pregnancy sleepies!)
~LIKES fox items (such as this little storage bin)
Some changes we made to the room include installing wood blinds, installing a new low-profile ceiling fan, remodeling the teeny tiny closet, and most importantly, installing a smoke/CO2 detector!
