The author of this post, Kristine P., is a mother of two from Richland, Washington. She recently welcomed her second daughter and showed off her nursery room DIY project on her Instagram account. We fell in love with the look of the room and beautiful details, which were perfect additions to the ClosetMaid Selectives storage unit, available at The Home Depot! We had to know more about her process, so take a look at her story and pictures below. We are sure you will be as impressed as we are!
When I found out I was pregnant with baby number two, one of the first things I realized I needed to do was get more organized than I was with my first.
I live in a 1970s home that came equipped with very small, basic bedroom closets. Before I redid the nursery closet, all that it consisted of was a single clothes rail and shelf. Knowing I could better utilize the space, I headed to The Home Depot and found the ClosetMaid Selectives 16” starter kit in white with coordinating drawers. It was so simple to install, I actually assembled the entire system in one evening myself. I am a big fan of compartments, so a few weeks later I added another ClosetMaid 2-drawer organizer for additional storage.
The transformed closet now has two clothes rails for hanging outfits, as well as six drawers for tucking away baby necessities like diapers, wipes, bibs, burp cloths and blankets. As an added bonus, the adjustable shelves accommodate a 13” TV/DVD player that I already had for when baby gets older and Sesame Street is in high demand.
To keep clothing arranged by size, I cut up old CDs and covered them with scrapbook paper to make clothing size separators that slip onto the clothes rails. This simple Pinterest project has saved me time by not having to check tags when clothing is added or removed from the closet.
Baby Penny is now over two weeks old and I'm glad to report that her nursery remains in order. I believe this is attributable to having a good organization system in place before her arrival.
