Eat your hearts out...PART 2 :)))

This is Brielle's closet. It has always been well a problem! We have a bin on the floor for undies, and a bin for socks! Then on the other side of the closet I have one of those hanging organizers for all her PJ's. Why not in a dresser? I hate them!.. She now has one but my kids rooms are not large!...and by not large I mean SMALL. Soooo for space sake I prefer closet organization!...This is how it started..


With no REAL linen closet I have resorted to putting extra sheets in each closet. That is what is on the shelf. Then I had this epiphany the other day. Why not put "cubbies" in her closet!...Especially for the boys because all I have is a changing table for storage and Dawson's clothes must go somewhere.




So the idea was put to the test! I started with Brielle's closet and took down the two rods! (There is a full length rod on the other side of the closet!) Then I measured out how I wanted them.


This project was actually a little harder than the laundry room for many reasons but I now feel confident in doing the boys room. Now I just need the motivation. THIS CLOSET EXHAUSTED ME!....


I put up support beams because lets face it...I'm sure I will catch my kids climbing on these shelves at some point!....Attached everything to studs and each other...



Here they are finished..time to caulk and paint!...The fun part!!!:))))



I love to paint!....anything and everything!...Sooo therapeutic to me!!



Put PJ's on the bottom. Socks in the little cubbie and underwear in another. Tights in one and bathing suits in another. The extra linens way up high ;) and Brielle filled the rest with her "treasures." I have not decided if I will get rid of the entire dresser and fill the rest of the cubbies but for now we are loving the organization....BIG SMILE :) With the boys I will go further down to the floor since I will have all their clothes in there and there are two ;) ENJOY!! (PS pics taken with iPhone..sorry for the quality)

Great job! You are making my mind think about what I can do to become more organized :) Did you buy all the wood at home depot? (is there one in UT?)
