Closet Transformation

Way back in January, I began to organize the contents of Rock’s closet and changing table. Up until this point, the closet has been plenty big enough for one kid so I never really organized it. But I knew with a baby girl on the way, we would need a lot of room for accessories/dresses/shoes/etc.20100126 Late January 003If you can look past all the clutter in the picture above, you can see the old shelf. Instead of a bar, these weird shelves with a lip are in all of our closets. This means we can only hang our hangers one way and we can’t use any hanging organizers that loop around a bar.100319 Louisa Theo Fix (3)Needless to say, the bar had to go. Using a gift card at Home Depot, we were able to purchase this fabulous closet system.100319 Louisa Theo Fix (10)Thankfully I had these two carpenter to “struction” work for me. And thankfully Rock had good outfits for each of them to wear. 100319 Louisa Theo Fix (16) After many stupid mistakes and frustrations, we finally finished this project! The drawers in the center hold Shin’s current wardrobe. The grey tub holds the outfits she will wear in coming months. Likewise, the blue tub in the center holds Rock’s future wardrobe.100319 Louisa Theo Fix (18)On the right hand side of the closet are Rock’s hanging clothes (or should I say costumes?) and a shoe organizer that holds Shin’s shoes and accessories and small toys and extra wipes. The other blue tub holds Rock’s wooden trains and train tracks. Someday soon I want to find a new spot for this and put a laundry hamper in it’s place. 100319 Louisa Theo Fix (20)On the left side, her hanging clothes are organized by size.100319 Louisa Theo Fix (19)The top shelf is actually the original shelf without the front lip (turns out it was really easy to pry off!). We used iron-on stripping to cover the front edge and I was super impressed with how easy it was to apply! So, there you have it. After months or planning, the closet is DONE!
