Thanks so much Jinjeet!  It can definitely be a challenge at times being in a small place, but I enjoy it too.  Plus, it's less to keep clean! Grin
12  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Baby's Space - Pic Heavy on: July 24, 2012 10:29:00 AM
So, me and my husband are slowly fixing up/remodeling the two bedroom singlewide mobile home we currently live in.  We have two little girls and last year we decided to have another child (you know, cause two kids in a home less than 1000 square feet was just too easy lol).  

Anyway, we ended up having a little boy, and we decided not to put him in the girls' room because we didn't want to take away any or their space for the baby and cause anymore sibling hostility than necessary.  Plus, we hope to get in a bigger home before too much longer, so we decided to put him in the only other room with the space, the living room.  I was determined that it would not be tacky though.  No overly baby-ish stuff.  

The living room connects with the kitchen and I have been using a black, white, blue, and red color scheme.  Also, I'm going for a retro feel in the kitchen and classic/contemporary in the living room.  It's still a work in progress, but I knew that the baby's things would have to fit these guidelines.  I found the perfect mini-crib online, but it's not easy to find baby stuff that's not baby-ish, and finding it to fit my color scheme AND fit a mini-crib, impossible.  So I made everything myself.  I decided to use retro robots as my inspiration once I found out I was having a boy.

Here's the crib.  I made the sheets from larger thrifted sheets and the bumper pads from some great fabric I got on Etsy.  It was designed by the seller and was the only fabric I could find to work.  You can also see the vintage suitcase where I keep his clothes.  He's 5 months now and so far it's still big enough!

Here's a close-up of the fabric I got off Etsy.  I used it for the inside of the bumper pad and the diaper stacker.

And the diaper stacker.

This shelf was already in the room.  We use it for holding cd's, dvd's, etc.  We cleared the top and the top two shelves for the babies things.

And my favorite, the mobile!

I made all the patterns for the mobile and hand sewed them all.  It took much more time than I had expected, but it was worth it to see my son smiling at it.  He loves it! Thanks for looking!

Wow! You did an amazing job.  I hope the place sells easily for y'all, it should with that kitchen.  I love the countertops, sounds just like what I need in my kitchen.  I've been trying to figure out what to do in there for a while now.  Plus, my uncle does the concrete floor coverings so he could probably help me out.  Thanks for sharing!

The shorts came out great!  They look very professional and really comfy too.  By the way, I'm already enjoying your blog.  Can't wait to see more!

That's a neat idea, it's really pretty!  I'm in the same boat as you were on the needle felting, intimidated.  Seeing how good your first project came out gives me a push in the right direction though.  Thanks for sharing!

I wish I had thought of that when my cat was using a litter box.  I had seen the store bought ones, but couldn't afford them.  This is absolutely brilliant!!

Although I hate to see Candyland cut up, this is still awesome!  I love the drink recipe idea, really clever!

That is lovely!  I am always amazed that anyone can knit with such fine yarn.  I can barely knit with worsted weight. lol  You are very talented!
