This is the way we build a nest...

As I approach the final stretch of this pregnancy, the nesting urge is kicking in big time. You know, like when you get the feeling that you simply cannot have a baby while the closet is this disorganized.

So, thanks again to Ana White and her fabulous ideas and easy to follow plans, I did some nesting with power tools.





And built some laundry basket dressers






They're not lookers, but they're functional. I did stain them a nice dark red oak and it's quite purdy. I don't have a pic of that though.

Anyway, we cleared out our closets and put these in there to store our clothes, which is much less annoying than dealing with overfilled dresser drawers with broken handles and the bottoms keep falling out etc. I feel much better about the closet.

I've also done some more traditional nesting; scrubbing floors and couches, cleaning appliances, cleaning kitchen cabinets, scrubbing bath tub, sewing diapers and post partum pads, washing walls etc etc. I don't feel like it's quite good enough yet. Which is ok, since I have a few weeks to go yet, so I need to keep busy. I don't know how my house will ever get a deep clean like this when I'm done having babies...this seems to be the only time I ever get it done.

I"m about to do something similar in the boy's room... Seeing all that extra space now that the crib is gone has inspired me! I'm going to do mine "built in" style though, tucking the shelves into the ends of the closet and setting baskets on them in there. More clear floor space, yay!!

Also... do you guys do a "family closet"? Have you heard of that? I'm contemplating it seriously, but Sofi might be getting too old... :P Not sure...

This is great! We will probably do the same thing in the boys room but and under the bed type dresser with totes full of toys. You do a great job even with child! Such a talented lady :)

Niecey, you always amaze me! Great idea! Nesting feels so good to get so much accomplished. With that there was a hormone that would give that desire and energy to us old ladies!
