Tips for an Organized Nursery Dresser

Happy Monday!

Who can believe that it is May 22? 2017 has flown by and what a year of blessings it has been.  I am now 27 weeks pregnant and I couldn’t be more thankful for that. For someone that went through a miscarriage in their first pregnancy, every week is such a reward. Being in my third trimester has brought on new things to worry about (preterm labor, contractions, etc.) but I am keeping God at the center of my pregnancy and remembering that Lucas is here for a reason. I find comfort in that and my worries disappear.

Here are Tips for an Organized Nursery Dresser:

We received this gorgeous dresser from my in-laws that I found on Everything but the House. If you haven’t checked out that website, go check it out!!  Basically it is an auction site with nearby estate sales. We have found some amazing treasures from EBTH in the past couple of years.

My favorite nursery accessory so far is this super fun lamp we received from my parents.  They found it at Ross discount store. My sister made the University of Kentucky fight song print a few years ago that fits perfectly in the nursery. 😉

So what is our theme exactly? We decided to go with an elegant/University of Kentucky/royal-navy-light blue theme. Over the next few weeks we will keep showing a few sneak peeks until we are complete.

No matter what type of dresser/chest/set of drawers that you have in your nursery, you can have organized storage for baby clothes.  I originally wanted to hang up most of Lucas’s clothes but I found it easier to fold those tiny clothes vertically to condense them together. My dresser has 5 drawers.  The top drawer is for sleepers/pajamas. The 2nd and 3rd drawer is for onesies/tops.  The 4th drawer is for pants and the 5th drawer is for outfits and shorts.  I figured I wouldn’t need many shorts in the first few months because fall/winter will be right around the corner. That is why I dedicated a full drawer to pants.

Look at those tiny pants!

In each drawer I folded the clothes vertically and made each column a different size. Folding vertically allows you to fit so many items in one drawer and you can see a sample of each item.  It may look like I have a ton of clothes so far… and well… I do.  My mom and I have been having so much fun finding deals at yard sales and thrift shops.  Where else can you get 13 outfits for $4?? They are all like-new!! Finding deals like that can sure spoil a person but I love searching for treasures.

Onesies/tops

I am thinking about putting labels inside the dresser to show the sizes… but I’m almost out of label tape… so that will come soon! My hubby will also have an easier time knowing where to put away clothes.

I hope you like our first sneak peek of the nursery! I know I didn’t show much, but there are a couple more things to complete.

Have a great week!
