The completed closet-now-baby nook

Last month I shared our process of transforming our walk-in closet into a baby nook. Well, we finally (almost) finished the process, and I figured I’d share pictures.

Unique bunk bed designs + other baby and kid rooms worthy of swooning

Taking geek chic to a whole new level

This nursery takes geeky decor to a whole new level and beyond. Check it out, those 8-bit characters were actually painted on the walls by the mama herself! Want more 8-bit goodness? Baby Blooze featured this nursery not too long ago, so if you want to see more photos (wait until you see what they […]
