After my sister moved she left us with a bunch of random furniture that she either couldn't fit or didn't want anymore and the shelf below fell into the latter category. At first, I wasn't sure we could use it either but after another day of struggling with what to do with Hadley's closet it clicked - unwanted shelving = extra storage = better organization = happy Mama!
The shelf was perfect except that it was a little plain. Initially, I planned to paint it but then I remembered I had a roll of pretty wrapping paper (from the dollar section at Target) that I had been wanting to use.
|I covered the top and then just lined the back and all the shelves with one continuous piece.|
So here is the BEFORE
and the AFTER
Now I keep all her pants folded on the shelves. Shirts are hung up on the right and dresses and skirts on the left. I also now have a spot for her shoes on top of the shelf. I just turned a "diaper caddy" on its side and the little shelves are the perfect size for holding shoes that don't fit her yet.
Have a lovely day!
