The Nursery – Part 3 – Unboxing and Assembly

This is a continuation of Part 1 and Part 2 of the Nursery Series.

Once the furniture boxes was inside of the apartment, it was time to move all of the desks out of the office and into our new office. One of the desks is relatively easy to move. It can be taken apart and it’s pretty light. The other one is definitely trickier. It’s heavy and was pulled out of shape in the last move. It had caught on the carpet last time and I pulled it a bit harder than I should have, so the rectangular desk shifted a little into a rhombus… This time, we had to be super careful while moving the desk out of the room. It was a tight fit through the doors and eventually into the new office.

With the old office cleared out, it was wonderful. I brought back memories of first moving in, with all the open space and sunlight coming into the room. Here is what the room looked like:

The Crib
The first thing to set up is the Crib. As I mentioned before, we had purchased this crib a while back when it was on sale. It’s the Baby Cache Heritage Cherry Lifetime Crib. We wanted something classic that would match the rest of our furniture. We also wanted something that could grow with our baby and be able to be used even after it gets older. This crib can be transformed into a double bed with a conversion kit. When we opened the box, we were very surprised to see how well it was packaged. The instructions were easy and everything felt sturdy once it was put together. See below for some pictures of the crib unboxing.

The Dresser
The next thing to set up was the dresser, Baby Cache Heritage Cherry Double Dresser. We were deciding between this double dresser or the combo dresser, but we decided on this one because it was bigger and it would allow us to use this as a changing table as well. It was a beast to move this item around, but it was for good reason. The whole thing was preassembled and packed really really well. We just had to cut away the box, and move the dresser into the nursery. See below for some pictures of the dresser unboxing.

The Nursery
With the main items in the nursery, we needed to move the other items in. The first thing in the room was the rocking chair, which now looks out on the lake. It will serve nicely as bonding space and a place to rock both us and the baby to sleep. All that is left is to decorate and load it up with the baby supplies that we have been keeping in the cache. Here’s a picture of the semi finished nursery room:
