So, when "baby room" was on the radar, I had a new fixation to attach to. I will admit to being very scattered in my planning and having no vision whatsoever. That is a downfall. But, fixated nonetheless on one thing at a time.
I sent Chris a lengthy email justifying why we should go ahead and purchase the bedding rather than waiting for a shower or looking anymore. He laughed and texted me with "ok go for it". He humors me.
My new fixation are these cute little shelves made from IKEA spice racks. I am sure you've all seen them, they are all over pinterest. Our room is tiny and while we do have a shelf around the perimeter, it is up high and getting to books easily would be annoying. So, I was trying to think of a space saving way to store his "precious books" that could be switched out regularly. My sister pointed me to the spice racks and I was sold.
My sister fixates on things, too. Little tidbit on Katie. However, she is more proactive and problem solver like while I am more, welp screw it and find another idea. My sister got on IKEA's website and looked to see if any local stores had them in stock or the one close to my friend in Utah. Apparently some stores will mail the item to you if it isn't an online item.
Next step, California. Because who wouldn't call Burbank, CA for a $3.99 spice rack?
Up a creek again though because the Burbank folk don't do mailers. Seriously Burbank?? Seriously.
I had all but given up at this point. Kid's gonna have to live without shelves down low and listen to mom groan when she climbs up the ladder to get a book.
Until I found this handy dandy tutorial...
I immediately sent the link to Chris with a play by play of how he could totally pull this off and actually make something for Henry's room. How neat would that be? His reply, "Yeah, I think I could give that a shot." See, he humors me.
So, stay tuned to see how well this turns out. I'll keep ya posted.
