You can just line the one large bin and empty your smaller ones from inside the home into it.

If you feel the need to line your bags, then here is a trick I picked up when we began cloth diapering our daughter - use pail liners. When they get dirty, simply toss them in with your rags/cleaning cloths/towels whatever you want. Easier and less icky than cleaning out the can, and less wasteful than plastic bags.

We find that these ones fit our very small bathroom and bedroom size cans -

Plus, you can color coordinate!

I saw this at a thrift store a few months ago! Well, one very similar anyway, though in worse shape. It was priced at about $100 if I recall. If I'd had the pocket money I would have snapped it up!

We just use a detachable sprayer attached to the shower head and leave it on there. Cost us considerably less ($12), can be used for other purposes, and if it did have the leaking issues of some diaper sprayers, it would just leak right into the tub. It only sprays when you press the handle, so it is not like it is spraying continuously.

We used to just spray with bac-out and leave in the diaper pail, but after starting solids at 1 year we had to have some kind of sprayer. 1 word - raisins.

I love the hanging rack on the wall. Wonder where it's from?

Get rid of it! Use it as a teaching moment for your kid rather than allowing him to dictate what you keep and hoarding things he no longer uses nor needs, nor that are sentimental.

I was a "tucked away" person prior to having a kid. Now, I want my daughter to be able to find things and be encouraged to play or take part in things like getting dressed, so we have a lot more open storage than I ever thought we would. As long as every thing has a defined place to be returned to, it is fine.

I really hate these things. Just get a beanbag if you want the seating. And if you need it as storage for stuffed animals, then get rid of some for goodness sake! Why have them just to HAVE them?

With the oranges in the cards, the first bedding I thought of was the Pixel Organics line with the tigers and such.

And you can buy the sheets separately if you don't want the full set.

How can anyone NOT be happy in this room? Beautiful use of color! And I adore the little desk and chair. Where did it come from?
I too join the cry of "winner" and "nursery tour"!

I love the yellow wardrobe with the yellow picture frames and box on the walls. Good job on the Spool birds too - Im in the middle of pinning my pieces together for a similar thing.

Fun, but something about it is a little too...matchy.

Love that chair! I'm a little leery though about the beautiful but paint chipped dresser since I'm guessing you don't know what kind of paint that is...

I love this! It's eclectic and everything just fits so well together. The best entries have definitely been saved for last. I'm getting so much great inspiration as I work on my daughter's nursery.

I agree - the stark combo is too modern for the flooring. I'd say leave the mantle white to match the baseboards and paint the remaning portions something softer. Maybe a sand color, then purchase some of that grout stain to match. Clean up and seal the stone and it looks like the greenish tint in it might go nicely with your wall color.

Also, what's with the singular nipple on that first guy? I'd be afraid I had just scraped it off and eaten it.
