A Nursette
This is NOT a makeover of a man and his chihuahua.


No, see that tiny space behind them?  That was formerly the dinette, the only eating space in Emily and her man’s 500 square foot home.  Did that stop them from bringing home a new baby?  Heck no!  Emily knew she had to get creative when their baby girl was born, but she didn’t want to sacrifice style either. So they found an old Thomasville bamboo hutch to refashion into a wardrobe, hung a sparkly chandelier and now eat their meals on the couch!  Emily says, “It just goes to show that space does NOT need to put limitations on starting your family!” 


More to see on her blog GEORGE Interior Design. Thanks Emily!

    This is so awesome! My friend thinks she needs to move in order to have a baby – and she has 1200sf! I’m sending her this way. 😉 We have 4 kids in 1300sf AND it’s organized – you can do anything you put your mind to! Way to go Emily! The armoire is awesome and the chandelier is going to be great eye-candy for the babalah!

    My brother in law and his wife did the SAME thing when they brought their son home to their 600 sq. ft. farm cottage – turned the dining room into a nursery! I have a “small” home at 1370 square feet with my 1 and 3 year old daughters running around. It doesn’t matter how big your house is, they still end up squealing girly squeals right under your feet. We think we can squeeze in a couple more! 🙂

    When my cousin had her first child she lived in a quaint apt. She put the baby in the closet. The way she did it was amazing. She is so organized and has an amazing sense of decorating.
