I have stuff shoved in there and can't get to what I need at all and I can't unpack and organize other things b/c of it. I put it in there to get it out of the way until my friend can come help undo it. Should I just take it back out so I can start using the closet the way I need to? The only place I can keep it is against the wall in my living room though. It's going to look super ugly and it may fall, though it isn't likely to fall since my son doesn't crawl yet and won't go near it. It could mark the wall though.
Could you just set up your bed on the frame for a day or two while you organize the closet? And then find a wrench to take it apart and put it away in the closet at the end of your unpacking?

I think it would be better not to put it up against the wall in the interests of risk management, as you never know if it could fall and hurt the baby, or someone else, and also if it marks the wall it will be annoying for you.
