Iheart Organizing Feature ~ A Yummy Closet~

Hey friends, so as I have mentioned before, I have been working very hard on my baby boy's bedroom, it has been so much fun, and I am excited to reveal his little but cute closet. This is so far my favorite organization project that I have done, it turned out so much better than I expected.  So good that Nolan's Closet was featured on


Here it is!
All of the gymboree bags on the top shelf were clothes he had already outgrown. Too crowded, and sloppy, I know.


There were also, a lot of extra things that were just everywhere, with empty spaces on the shelf, meaning the shelves weren't being utilized wisely. Right below the second shelf is a small concrete shelf, there were just things piled up, and I knew it could have been used better.



The bottom part of this closet was even worse! Every thing piled on a big storage bin, looking very ugly, and disorganized.


So not a pretty sight!


After much research and patience, this is what I came up.
Oh so delicious!


We already had a 4 compartment expedit at home, and we decided it was a perfect fit! Yes, it fits perfectly in the closet, meaning this closet is very tiny.


After watching the 2012 HGTV Green Home Tour and seeing these babies, I fell in love and had to have them. I did splurge on them I must admit, but they are perfect for Nolan's closet, don't you think. You can get them at the container store.

Now I can store toys, and hide away blankets, and accessories. I love these baskets!


I am using the greatest hangers ever made! The no-slip velvet hangers for kids, I am telling you they are a great investment. Plus they look clean and uniformed, and as you can see, I need more!


Remember what the shelves used to look like? Well, they were a mess, now everything is tidy and neat.






The cute little red containers I purchased at the $1 store! Perfect for storing diapers, wipes, toiletries, and other things. I love it!!





I got the top containers at IKEA at $3 a pop! And I labeled them, perfect for all of the clothes he has outgrown.


The tiny concrete shelf is now being utilized as a shoe display, don't you just love it? I do!











Before and After is a Must!





What do you think?
Have you done any cool Transformations lately? If so, e-mail me or post a link, I would love to get my eyes on it!

  10. Wow this is excellent! It's amazing what some bins and organization can do! I really need to get around to organizing all of my daughters old clothes and shoes; I used to have a system but once I moved to a new house they just started being stashed everywhere!!

    1. Thank you Pamela, it truly does make a big difference. Make a plan for your daughters closet before you start, than get rid of things they will never use, and make a budget for your closet, you will be truly proud of yourself. I know you can do it! :)
