Darcy sent us an email: Here's a room with plenty of problems: it is officially called the Mother's Room, but mostly it's referred to as the pumping station. It's a bit outside your usual nursery/playroom area, but I think if anybody can help, it's you guys!
(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first. Email questions and pics with QUESTIONS in subject line to: nursery(at)apartmenttherapy(dot)com)
My company recently downsized, and the original Mother's Room with a kitchenette was one of the casualties. We've managed to get a new dedicated space (and we understand how lucky that makes us) but it's actually a former handicapped bathroom. The space is cold, literally and figuratively, and I'd like to do what I can to make it more pleasant for nursing moms. The two posters are propped up by the sink to block part of the full-wall mirror so that we don't have to watch pumping in action. The highlight of the room is the small collection of baby pictures, and we've also got a decent selection of reading material. We're working on upgrading to a slightly bigger mini-fridge and adding a microwave for sanitizing parts. But after that, I'm stuck -- it's a collection of broken-down office furniture, mid-80's tile or mirror on every available surface, no organization system, and a very small footprint. Oh, and since my husband and I are taking this on ourselves, the budget is tiny. Please add your ideas for Darcy's project to the comments below...thanks!
