Tip for Living Small with Kids: Just because it doesn't come from the children's department doesn't mean it can't be used for a child's room. Using non-baby furniture and decor in a nursery will allow it to be used for longer by your child or to be used in another part of your home as your child's needs change.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in putting together this room? Making a walk-in closet feel like a nursery. We thought the "room" would feel more nursery-like if it contained more than just a crib. But putting a standard crib in there would have left no room for other furniture and wouldn't have allowed us to really use the room. Luckily, we were able to fit a dresser/changing table and a crib in the nursery by getting a mini-crib and employing some careful furniture arrangment.
