What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in putting together this room? When your master bedroom is only 8' x 13' you become a real simplistic family. Other than the obvious challenge of space, our biggest challenge was deciding that the baby room was also going to be our bedroom. We decided that we would use only what we need, so baby winter clothes is in storage during the summer and vice-versa. The other rule is that we only put items in the dresser that he fits in now. So no 6 months sweatshirts go in a drawer no matter how many cool skulls are on it.
