I’ve been attempting to finish my entire home before our dear little baby arrives, and geez, it’s proving to be a challenge.

Then I spotted some Cath Kidston wrapping paper I’d picked up in the UK a few years ago. It just screamed drawer liner. And since I’ve planned on using the vintage green dresser as the changing table bottom, what could be more perfect? I was cooing with delight.
