Coming Soon: Transformation

We have a three bedroom house. And (soon-to-be) five children. It goes without saying that our children share rooms, right?

In our attempts to make everyone fit, it was decided that all of the girls' clothing needed to go into their closet. No room for dressers, really. And so began the great closet transformation of January 2010.

The project is almost done, it just requires a few more items. But this is just to whet your appetite.

We're going from this:


Adding some of this:

And this dresser FULL of clothes that has seen much better days:


Will it work? Your guess is as good as mine at this point.

Dressers are very useful though, don't discard it, maybe you can use the dresser top for baby changing table? or put it somewhere else in the house?-covered patio? garage/...good luck!

Melinda said...

Yup, it'll work cause you are doing it! Happy organizing!

Alissa said...

If the beds in the room are tall enough, you can always take the dresser drawers out, and slide them under the bed. I've had to use this trick before, and it works in a pinch!

If you don't like the dresser (and I'm one for always repurposing rather than chucking) you should check out http://www.knockoffwood.blogspot.com/ and build your own! Her tutorials are fantastic. Haven't made anything yet . . .just waiting for summer! The closet looks fantastic :) Oh, and I borrowed your idea for valentines. Thanks for the idea!
