Creating A Small Space Nursery In 4 Simple Steps
#ApartmentLiving with a little one can require some “out of the box” ideas. As a first-time mom-to-be, I had to figure out how to fit another human being into our San Francisco apartment.
So, we decided to turn our hallway into a tiny nursery.
- Electrical Box: To conceal the ugly electrical box, I hot glued magnets to the back of a white cabinet door & stuck it to the metal face.
- Mini Crib: This was supposed to be a short-term living space for Baby C, so we invested in the Alma-Mini Crib from Bloom, which fit perfectly in the space. We later sold it on Ebay to another expecting mom who used it as a bassinet.
- Accents: To make the “room” look a bit more nursery-esque, we added fun Etsy decals to the walls. My mom helped me sew lining for the storage baskets using fun bright fabric to match the changing pad. Incorporating tiny hooks and shelves into the wall decal design added a bit more storage. We also added a battery-operated sconce to the wall for a bit more light in the “room” without a power source.
- Transformer Changing Table / Door: Since there was an existing door frame in the middle of the hallway that led to the back door, my dad and I decided to design a hinged third wall. When open, it allows access to the back door. When closed, it acts as a third wall with a drop-down changing table and storage drawers.
