As soon as I got this news, my priorities started changing. I started thinking and planning for the motherhood that I was about to experience.

One of the most amazing advices that I got was in reference to the renovation home ideas. My friend told me that now your dream home ideas should involve a child living in the dream house. For a second, I panicked but then I realized then what she told me is that all I need to make my choices wisely. The first thing I thought of after this advice was to start preparing for the baby’s room. I thought of several modern home decorating ideas to for my baby’s nursery.

While I was brainstorming cool craft for home ideas, I realized that having a baby means I need extra storage space in my house to keep all the baby stuff. This is when I decided to work on different organize home ideas and make some space for the baby space. My mother told me that the first cool home ideas that she worked on after I was born were get a storage dresser for my room. I took my mother’s advice and decided to get a storage dresser for my baby’s room as well. However, I have modern art home décor in my house and I wanted the dresser to match the modern home decorating ideas. So instead of buying a new storage dresser from the market, I went on buying an old one off the internet and then turn it into one of DIY home decorating projects. I took this as a challenge and was so happy to do it since this was the first furniture in the nursery and I as the one working on it.
