The closet in our nursery was kinda…well…blah. Only one long shelf and hanging rod across the back wall and some small shelves on the side. We took the opportunity to give it a makeover while creating our Colorful Nursery for Trent.
The first step was to remove the long shelf and hanging rod.
We then painted the wall the same color as the rest of the nursery, Benjamin Moore Gray Horse.
We kept the small side shelves since they’ll provide extra storage room without getting the way.
We also added a light fixture. A sleeker light fixture from IKEA.
We purchased the IKEA Expedit 5×1 shelf in white and placed it upright in the center of the closet and nailed it to the wall.
Brett installed another long shelf above the center IKEA shelf. He then took two long white metal rods, cut them in half and inserted two on each side of the center IKEA shelf.
We added some bins to the center IKEA shelf and a shoe insert to the bottom.
Before Brett could say “Ta-Da!” I filled it with diapers and lots of clothes!
Waaay more storage space and more room for clothes!
