15 Nursery Hacks For Teeny-Tiny Spaces

By  | 

I have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest. On the one hand, it’s fun to mock, and on the other hand, I spend too much time there. If I had to be honest with myself, any “hate” on my part comes from what my husband refers to as a Pinferiority complex. After hearing about all of those parents nestling their newborns between the toilet and the shower yesterday, it occurred to me that there must be a better way for renters and people in tiny spaces with babies. And I was right (as I usually am).

I never had a nursery for my kid, something that doesn’t make me sad so much as crushingly bitter, so looking at all of these small space nursery ideas and hacks almost makes me want to break my self-imposed one child rule. Almost.
