It’s Workin’ For Us: Project Closet Nursery!

by The Next Family October 12, 2012

By Shira Gill, Simply Sorted
We have two kids now. Soooo…we decided we needed a three-bedroom. But we have a two-bedroom. We needed to make our space work for us and fast! It only took three days and under one hundred dollars to transform a spare closet into a nursery for Baby Emilie! I must say we are pretty pleased with the results and did everything on a dime. Our fabulous friend, Mahnee, sewed the quilt and curtains faster than a speeding bullet and all we bought was a cozy rug and some fabric. We are feeling very New York-y and industrious. Hooray!! PS. Please don’t judge me for putting my kid in the closet. It is only a temporary solution. She sleeps really well in there. And there’s a window…

BEFORE: A large utility closet used to be a catch-all for the vacuum cleaner, kid stuff, and to-dos. We had to relocate everything to prepare for the new nursery!

AFTER: A cozy rug, new lighting, and some handmade curtains did the trick on a dime!

We added a few toys and dolls to make it a bit cozier.

Amazing what a carpet can do to warm up a space!

Any creative uses for your closets? Share, please!

LGBT couples with or without children weren’t just given the right of marriage, they were provided new protections and benefits within their families. All of a sudden, LGBT couples and families had to figure out how to file jointly when it came to taxes, how to add...

Representation of Modern Families in Kid-Friendly Entertainment

by The Next Family March 24, 2016 1 Comment


By Alex Temblador

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.

The same can be said of other...
