One great thing about this home is that it has plenty of rooms. One thing is does not: closet space! The upstairs has a bit of an awkward layout too, which I’m guessing is due to the time it was divided into several apartments. You have to walk through the master bedroom to get into my craft room (a former upstairs kitchen) and you have to walk through both of those to get to this back room, which was the baby’s nursery. Now that she’s about to turn one, we moved the girls to the same room. We decided to turn this one into a closest for me. Score! I’ll show you a few ways I organized it on a budget.
Here is the view walking into the room. The leather ottoman is our former coffee table. I think we originally purchased it from Overstock.com a few years back.
The dresser on the right is the baby’s old changing table (you can find the tutorial for how i Mod Podged on the Chevron fabric here). Since we can’t put holes in the walls in this house due to them being solid concrete, I used the sides of the changer to hang all my necklaces.
I have a few stackable rubbermaid containers next to it to hold some things like hats and scarves.
On top is some jewelry and little knick knacks.
A double hanging rack from Target holds clothes, boots, and bags.
I used wooden pants hangers that are felt-lined for some of my boots and hung bags from hangers.
Moving left, the small closet holds more clothes. I used an over the door rack for all my belts. (Most of these are from college…I had a thing for belts!).
A cheap, tall Walmart bookshelf holds all my shoes. I tuned a canvas basket on it’s side to hold my many Old Navy flip flops (my shoe of choice!)
Another double hanging rack from Target holds the last of my clothes.
On top of the radiator, I used a cupcake stand to hold my earring and bracelets and an awesome feathered headband I’ve yet to wear!
