Well, the time has finally come! Now that we are building the nursery for our l’il boomba in the room that used to be my walk-in-closet (AKA my Lady Cove)–I need a space to put my clothes. I have one floating rack that fits nicely in the bedroom, but I need another dresser for pants and such.
Right now in this area, I have my work space–on most days, it looks like this:

When I do projects like this–it really makes me want to have my own line of furniture. It’s exhilarating! Can’t wait to see the final outcome and share it with you all. Stay tuned!!
