Nursery Closet Renovation: Before & After

I’m excited to share this before & after nursery closet renovation with you!  If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you have probably figured out that Corinna is very into organization and has a Container Store obsession, and I live a more ‘cluttered’ life.  So when I was pregnant with Baby E, Corinna gave me a wonderful gift – a complete nursery closet renovation!

Before: Nursery Closet Renovation

We live in an old house built in the 20’s with very few, odd-shaped closets.  The nursery closet is deep, but not very wide and at that time was functioning as a catch all coat, linen, and guest room closet. I think just looking at it gave Corinna heart palpitations….

I wanted a flexible closet that could grow with Baby E and included hanging space, drawers, and basket storage.  Corinna delivered it all!  What isn’t pictured here is how we utilized the side wall space.  We hung a shoe organizer on one wall to hold everything from little socks and shoes to hats and mittens.  And on the other side we hung a basket with hooks below to hang coats, sleep sacks, a bow organizer, etc. Every inch of the closet space is being utilized.

After the closet was completely transformed and put together, I decided white was too boring. Even a closet needs a pop of color! So we removed everything, my husband painted the closet a lovely shade of pink and Corinna came back over and put it back together again! The gift that keeps on giving….. :)
