Nursery Update {Mini Closet Makeover}

As promised, I have a little nursery update for y’all today! I am finally sharing Caroline’s mini closet makeover! 

As soon as we found out our babe was a girl we knew what that would mean…tons of clothes! Sure enough, right away we started receiving weekly shipments of dresses from my girlfriends and the grandmas. When I asked Matt if we could add some storage to the closet he didn’t even question me about it. He knew we’d need it so he immediately called our affordable handyman, Hector, to build us some cubbies and add an additional
rod for clothes.

{before & after}

The extra storage has already come in handy and I’m so
glad we did this project. It took us awhile to find baskets for the cubbies. After purchasing and returning lots of different options, we finally lucked out at TJ Maxx Homegoods and scored the large cubby baskets for $12 each and the smaller cloud baskets for $7 each! 

{lots of blankies too!}

You can find my post on the DIY nursery dividers {here}.

I just love opening up Caroline’s closet and seeing so many cute items waiting for her arrival.

More updates to come!

    This is exactly what I want to do to my daughter's closet! She only had one closet rod and the above shelf. You will have plenty of storage now with those cubbies and so much room for clothes. Great idea, it looks lovely!

    It's perfect!! We added one of those 4 cube cubby systems to our son's closet for extra storage and it's been a great help in keeping things organized. Glad to see you have some giraffe blankets for her! Those are the softest!

    Oh I'm so jealous of those cubbies! We're in the midst of nursery closet organization ourselves and have added a second half shelf/rod and I've picked up cubical style cubbies to help with smaller storage at the bottom. I'll need lots of storage baskets, as I have a cubby book shelf in the room and our changing table has cubbies, so I'm regularly stalking Home Goods and TJMaxx for basket options! So fun seeing all those sweet little clothes just waiting for her, looks great!
