My husband and I purchased our home 2 years ago. It was called a "Hud home" and was owned by the government. Kind of like a foreclosure! The house needed alot of work before we could move in. It was a 4 bedroom home when we bought it. While doing renovations we decided to combine 2 rooms and have a huge master suite. I was pregnant at the time with Asher. How perfect, one room for us, one room for Asher, and a room for my office downstairs. It was perfect. Asher was to be an only child.
Fast forward to present time and we are expecting our second child. Not a perfect situation. Once we found out I was pregnant I was so bent out of shape about the bedroom situation. I literally drew up 3 plans of putting the wall back up and giving this little girl her own room!
Asher's bedroom is very tiny. He is only 20 months, loves his crib, and there is no way I could have him in the office. Our house is kind of like a Bi-Level. From our dining room you go down 5 steps and our laundry room, living room, 1/2 bath , and office is there. Along with a door to go into the backyard. I feel Asher is no way old enough to be in the office all by himself while we are upstairs. After finally regrouping, taking measurements, and really getting a game plan together. I have decided that they can share Asher's room!
We have a huge playroom off the living room that is for the most part our entire basement. All the kids literally will do it sleep in their room. Asher will be able to move into the office once he is older and wants his own room. So this lead me to project kids room! This room is getting a major overhaul! We started with the closet first, which is what I am going to share with you guys today. I am awaiting some wall decals and we will be setting up Asher's big boy bed within the week.

I was able to reuse the shelf and one of the white cabinets we already had. Which really helps save money.
Shelf (already had)
2 white cubby cabinets (purchased at home de pot, roughly $34 each)
6ft rod (purchased at home de pot, roughly $10)
Mounting brackets ( purchased at home de pot, roughly $3 each)
First I had to repaint the closet because I originally painted the closet green. Now it is white! Once everything was dry we stacked the cabinets on top of each other. We then secured them to the wall so they could not fall if the kids tried to climb them! Then I measured out and cut the rod to make 4 clothing racks! Unfortunately I forgot to take a before photo! But believe me, the old closet looked nothing like this!
I am so proud of the kids closet! We had to remove the dresser because the bedroom is so small. We now have all the space we need and were able to put all the items from the dresser in the closet!
