First, let me share the before pic….
Talk about looking totally different. I love it! It’s just a cheery change of scenery. So let’s talk about the closet organization tips I found helpful in Teacup’s closet.
To begin we added some wood shelves by using a couple of 2″x4″ boards cut to fit the width of the closet and nailed to the wall. We then topped them with a couple of 1″x12″ boards cut to fit the length of the closet. The nice thing about this arrangement is that as Peanut grows, if she later would like to use the top rod in her closet all we have to do is lift the 1″x12″ boards out of her closet and the top rod is immediately available. No nail removal or dis-assembly required.

Adding Storage Containers

Finally we added some fun labels…
Including clothing labels…

We had just enough space below the paper box shelves to add some large Sterilite storage containers we already had to store hand-me-down shoes.

Using What Works
Finally I switch out her cloth clothes hamper for a more traditional plastic laundry basket and the result is what you see below.
Peanut now has room to the left to place her stroller and grocery cart without clothing interference. In addition, we gained lots of useful storage space that we will easily be able to transition as she grows. We may eventually paint the added boards but for now, I am pleased with the result, especially since it makes much better use of her closet space. Now, what room should I organize next? Suggestions?
