Over the past couple years, I’ve shared a few peaks into our Nursery. The Nursery Closet Dividers that I made for the closet are one of my favorite DIYs for this nursery, but it isn’t the only way that I’m keeping this closet organized. Today I’m sharing a bit more about the details of our Grey & White Nursery closet.
An Organized Grey & White Nursery Closet
Before this room was transformed into a Nursery, it originally served as my craft room. One of the best decisions of this closet was to remove the doors. The sliding doors would only show 1/2 the closet at a time, which really makes the center 1/3 of the closet hard to use. When it was my craft room, I had a curtain going across; however, I decided to simply keep it open for the nursery.
Baby clothes are small. I didn’t want to waste the lower section of the closet so we moved the IKEA Expedit (now Kallax) into the closet. It fit perfectly! Each of these cubes and the top of the cabinet is great for storing toys and other items for the nursery. As our future baby grows, these cubes can grow with him or her to hold more books, toys, or whatever else we need to store. I love these Grey & White Bins for storage!
The closet has an awkward triangle shape to it on one side. I used this area to add a couple wire baskets to hold shoes (including some UGG boots that I found for 10 cents at a garage sale) and added some 3M command hooks for my Ergo & Tula (how cute is this science fabric).
I seriously love the Y-Weave baskets from Target. They come in so many fun colors and a variety of sizes. I used a small basket to hold some crochet outfits that I plan on using for newborn photos (and then the outfits can go into storage and I can use the basket to hold other necessities).
I found this wooden bin at the local thrift store and painted it teal to fit in with the other aspects of the room. It is the perfect little bin to store some swaddle blankets. I’m sure I’ll be using it to store some of these bandanna bibs as well.
The upper shelf of the closet holds some other clothes that I’ve picked up over the past few years. Each bin holds a different size and they are currently separated by gender.
