the IT city, the I.T. Baby


Project Baby Room: step 2

Yesterday we were given a new changing table, which is something that we’ve been wanting for a while as our improvisational table was a little short and my back is a little sucky.

I managed to get the thing over from the neighbor’s house with the aid of a furniture dolly I own for the landlording part of my many jobs with only the slight issue of one of the knobs deciding to hide in an area that I can’t get to without disassembling the thing.

So here’s our current baby room setup which seems to work pretty well for the baby.

We’re using a couple of shutters ITMama picked up in Oregon as a shelf for baby products, nice orange rug that Maggie can grip for flipping on top of a beige area rug.

Still a bit of a work in progress, but this is how I spent some of my yesterday and why I haven’t spent much of today on anything other than going “ow”
