The Mini Man-Cave - now we just need a baby!

This weekend marked the culmination of the work we had set for ourselves to get done by the end of March. Amazingly we're done ahead of schedule. I have to give my wonderful husband kudos for this. He really worked his booty off getting his man-cave ready to turn into the mini man-cave.

Here's Shooter with the first pieces of the crib. We were mightily impressed with how well the crib was packaged.

It also didn't take all that long to put together - I think maybe an hour from start to finish, if that. It didn't have scads of screws and stuff either...this was it!

We got lots of help from the pups...

As you can see, Morey's very excited and Leah's her usual stern self. :-)

It's coming along!!!

This is the only part of the crib setup that gave Shooter problems. One of the screws was messed up and wouldn't go in smoothly. Luckily we had some extra screws that are to be used in the conversion to the full sized bed. They worked perfectly!

And now for the final product!!

I can't even begin to tell you how impressed we were with the quality of this furniture. It was packaged amazingly well and had not one single scratch on it! It's an amazing crib that we will have for many many years.

Now we're just need a baby to sleep in the bed - but not too soon!!

We also got the dresser/changing table into the room.

Here's an up close shot...

We purchased Simmons Kids furniture from Baby Depot at Burlington Coat Factory. Again, I cannot say enough about the quality of this furniture and the packaging of it. We're so excited!!!

That furniture looks very elegant, and is a great blend with the paint color you chose. Very soon, it will be a truly exciting room to be in!

i like how you have the crib in the corner. ours is huge and we're having trouble making all the furniture fit just right. Maybe i'll try that!
