We have diaper storage!!!

So today I finished a little project for the baby's room. I bought this at a thrift store a long time ago. It used to have glass panes in it that said "Onions, Potato, Bread" ... but I took that out and repainted and........ I replaced the glass with flannel and lined the inside with fleece (it's so much softer than contact paper.)

Top shelf - kissaluvs (a prefitted dipe)

Second shelf - cotton prefolds and doublers for pocket diapers

Third shelf - covers (bummis, wraps, and soakers)

These are only the newborn sized diapers (6-10 lbs - I'll kill Ryan if I give birth to someone larger than 10 lbs). There are many many more prefolds, that will end up somewhere else (haven't figured that out yet). and all the larger dipes (yeah, there are a lot) will also go somewhere else... (probably in storage till we need them).
I also spent a good portion of the day painting the other two walls in the baby's room (baby stuff room is more like it since the baby will be sleeping with us) I've got one coat up, and will hopefully get a second coat done tomorrow, and maybe some detail work also. Hopefully Ryan will get to building the cubbies soon, so we can have the room finished. Next I need to find a used dresser that we can paint the same colors and use the top for a changing table. It's all coming together!
