Could we really already be in week two of the One Room Challenge?! If you missed week 1’s nursery design board check it out here. This week we decided to take on the nursery closet. We started in here because we thought it might help to keep us organized as we made our way through the rest of the project, plus I really wanted to hang up all the sweet baby clothes we have been getting!
The closet itself is a pretty decent size but it lacked any useful shelving & had one of those not so pretty wire shelving units. After our DIY built-in bookcase project, I knew we could make better use of the space & for pretty cheap. Heres what we were working with:
The built-ins for this closet only cost us a total of $100! To see the full tutorial for the closet shelving build portion check it out here.
Already so much better, but there was still missing something. So after some very productive Pinterest searching, I decided I wanted to add some wallpaper to bring in the nautical element & add a pop of color. So I started researching some pricing for the wall size I would need & it was going to be pretty expensive, so I thought a little faux wallpaper might be appropriate! I enlisted the help of my mom & her handy dandy circuit machine to make me pirate ship vinyl pieces in a royal blue.
All I did was individually stick each one in a random pattern on the back wall. If you don’t have a circuit machine you could also use a stencil & paint on your design to look like wallpaper.
I am in love with the way it looks peeking through his little baby outfits. Why is everything so much cuter when it’s in baby size?!
She also made me these vinyl labels for all his bins. I bought the small little chalkboards from the Target dollar section & knew they would be perfect for organizing all his things.
I am so happy with the finished product! The closet is so much more functional & looks adorable too.
