When I was pregnant, I experienced an overwhelming need to nest—which proved to be a challenge since we weren’t even living in our own home yet. I diverted that nesting energy into making Evelyn a big girl bed for the new house. I thought that brand new and exciting things–new house, new room, new bed–might make the arrival of her baby sister a bit easier. Besides, the baby was going to need the crib that Evelyn currently occupied–so, both love and practicality drove this project.
Living through a home renovation is like living in the wild: you do whatever it takes to survive.
