I would go with a contrasting table - so much easier than trying to match a table to chairs. Also, I think contrasting tables/chairs adds visual interest to a room. Would love to see pictures of the end result.

I like this bathroom, though I do agree that it's a tight squeeze! I agree with other posts. You just need bit more organization and cute storage bins and you will be good to go. Also, can you paint the door and molding? It looks like it could use a spruce up and might change the whole look and feel of the bathroom.

Take the Set! You've got some great angles on that furniture, and lot's of options with it. You could either refurbish it yourself with new paint, and hardware so that it better suits your apartment or sell it to someone who is good/interested in furniture refurbishing! If you want to keep it(I think you should, especially because it's free!) check out this post made by my friend Beth: http://www.homestoriesatoz.com/diy/painting-furniture.html Best of luck, and congrats on this really exciting chapter in your life!

I remember we used to take an old hose, punch holes in one side, and then lie it out on the lawn as a "splash pad." It's nice to see how far we've come since yesterday : )

I cut mine in half, then into slices. If I'm serving for breakfast/brunch, then I cut off the rind--it's super quick this way. If it's for a barbecue or as a dessert, then I leave it on the rind in a V shape.

With four kids (38 months apart), I couldn't suggest early preparation more. But with one caveat--that you also plan for the unexpected. As a new mom, you do the best you can organizing and planning, but once baby or babies come, flexibility is key. Each baby & postpartum experience is different!
