The closet in the nursery is cute, efficient and organized AND I did it for free!
Wanna see? Of course you do!
Isn't that a cute, clean space?! I love how it turned out.
I asked my ever-capable husband to take the sliding doors off of the closet to open up the room a little more. He thought I was crazy, of course, but did it anyway.
I used some leftover paint from my older boys' room and added white to it to get it the shade I wanted. I like that it's not the same as the wall color in the rest of the room.
After sorting and organizing baby clothes, most of which fit into this dresser, I needed some storage bins for the top of the closet. I downsized some of my old things (including a bin of clothes from my freshman year in college. 1994. Why did I keep them?!) and added them to the closet. The one on the left is for baby extras--the bumbo chair, training potty, a mobile for the bouncy chair... you know how it is. The one on the right is for clothes as he outgrows them. The little bin in the middle holds some keepsakes and parenting books.
Baby's clothes take up just half of the hanging rod. I have his current size and season as well as some things to transition into for fall. His winter clothes are in storage in the basement, as well as next summer's clothes. Most of these clothes were given to us for our first son, but are just as adorable the third time around!
My dad made this bookshelf for me and my brother when we were little. I sanded it down and stained it walnut.
The white baskets are from Target over 10 years ago--who knew that one day they would house baby toys for my third son?!
I had a Classic Pooh theme for my two older boys--though not in the same house. Each son has gotten a completely different look in his room! The cherubs in the Pooh frame are none other than myself and my husband.
This Pooh was from my brother while I was in college and the storybook collection was from a friend in college.
In case you were wondering, the curtain hanging in the closet is actually a quilt. I hung it using a shower curtain tension rod and safety pins.
My 2- and 4-year-olds like to close the curtain/quilt and hide! They can easily do that as the tie has a velcro closure.
The quilt is from the Transportation by Tiddliwinks collection sold by Target a few years ago. I believe it has been discontinued, but things are still available through ebay. I got the crib bedding through craigslist for a steal!
I know, that's not part of the closet, but I started talking about the bedding...
I have three more fun projects to do before the final reveal. If you missed the gallery wall, go check it out! To see my older boys' uber-organized closet, go here!
Hope you enjoyed seeing the cute, efficient, organized and FREE closet!
