Holy Closet, Batman!

We finished Lil' Waller's closet last night!!  Hooray for checking things off the proverbial "nursery to-do" list!  It really wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be and didn't take us quite as long as I thought it would.  We had already installed a closet system just like this in our last home, so I think we were pretty familiar with how this works!  Here are some photos to show the progress:

The closet started like this with one single shelf (keep in mind, this is actually a pretty darn big coset):

Pretty plain, right?

So we ran to Home Depot and bought this puppy:

We also bought some cabinet doors and a couple drawers, but I forgot to take pictures of those.  Whoops.

We had to take the shelf that was in there out.  Since it was put into the wall with drywall anchors, it left huge holes in the wall when we removed it.  So, we had to spackle and paint and wait for all that jazz to dry!

After all that was done, we got to work assembling (and by we, I mean my dearest hubby).

All the lovely pieces.

Gotta anchor it to the wall.  Safety first, people!

Just call me Vanna.

Almost there!!

And the final product..........
(well, until she gets more stuff)

So there you have it folks!  An amazing new closet for our negative 4 month old and it only took a few hours!  Can't beat it with a cane!

Next on the nursery list......the chair!  My wonderful parents have offered to pick up the tab on the rocker/swivel/recliner chair I found!  Sweet!  So now I need to go order that and find a little "nightstand" style side table that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. 

Please share your closet and/or nursery transformations!  I'd love to see!


  1. Oh how I love an organized closet! It looks great and seems like it will be functional for a ton of baby clothes.

  2. Thank you!! The closet is practically full now! People just keep giving us clothes!! It's amazing!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I read each and every one of them and work hard to respond to all of them that I can.
