I can never be too organized. The bunking of my two boys together into one room and the unfolding of a new nursery has created the need for creative storage. Over the last few weeks, we have taken on some closet transformations that I will be sharing over my next few posts. Oh sure, I could have hired a company to come in and give my standard builder closets an overhaul, but how much fun would that be? No fun at all! So off I went to one of my DIY sanctuaries, The Home Depot.
Then I opted for four of these aqua fabric bins also by Martha Stewart at Home Depot.
So after making my purchases, I rushed home to assemble my find. Then, on a random trip to Target, I happened to come across this little gem! A-ha! I had an idea….
Now, the hope was that the two would stack on top of each other, and to my excitement, they did! Score! Well, if that wasn’t enough fun, here is where extraordinary enters the room. Both pieces came with the standard back panel in white, and since my closet doors are removed and these pieces were going to be showing, I needed to kick it up a notch. So I added a mix of patterned papers and fabric for a colorful custom touch. Here is what we ended up with.
Here is the storage unit assembled.
Next, I added fabric and paper to the back panels for a custom, decorative look.
Then, the unit was moved into the closet for some accessorizing.
And…the final reveal! This is great for storing extra clothes, blankets and anything else baby you can think of!
We are totally loving the way it turned out. What do you think? Let us know.
