We couldn't think of a better way to introduce ourselves to the Ohdeedoh community than with a tour of Penelope's room.

Maxwell's felt door tutorial was used to help convert this former dining room into little Penelope's brand new nursery. As renters, we were limited in what we were able to do to personalize the space but with a mix of items found via Etsy or handmade by ourselves and friends, we were able to turn a small dining room into a cozy space.

Living in earthquake prone San Francisco meant that the framed artwork formerly above the wall where the crib now sits needed to be moved. A small hat brought back from Peru by a dear friend and a string of banners handmade from leftover scraps of fabric are the only things that now adorn the wall.

Because the room lacks closet space we needed to get a bit creative with storage solutions. A vintage credenza is used to hold all of the cloth diapers, covers and accessories that should last Penelope through potty learning.

While renting definitely puts limits on what we can do in a room, it also gives us a lot of flexibility for future changes. As Penelope grows from newborn to toddler, the room can simply and easily grow and change with her.
