Nursery Progess - Closets!

Yes, it's been a while since I updated again. We've been hard at work getting the closets done - ClosetS - plural! Since Dan's clothes and some random other stuff was in the nursery closet, we had to get that stuff out before we could redo it for the baby. We decided to convert the den closet into Dan's closet since it was basically only being used for random office things and other random things that could easily be either thown away or moved elsewhere. So we bought another shelving unit for the basement and a small closed cabinet for the den. We moved all the random things down to the basement and the office things into the cabinet so they would still be where they are needed. Then we tore out the existing rail and shelves and installed 2 rails and an upper shelf to take care of Dan's stuff. I think it turned out pretty good!

Before (this was taken a while ago just to laugh at the cat, but it looked pretty much like this):


Now we could tackle the nursery closet! First we tore out the existing stuff then we installed a high rail and three shelves on either side to best utilize the space. For further storage we put a small drawered closet organizer in the middle. I painted everything white including the closet doors and trim and as an added touch, put cute little animal drawer pulls on for handles.

This is what the drawer pulls look like (of course ours are on a white background) I'm looking forward to moving the baby stuff into the closet - probably won't be too much longer before I'll be able to do that!
