One of the things I missed most about our old house was the storage. We custom-designed each closet, and everything had it's place.
A few weeks ago, my cute husband decided to add shelving in the playroom closet (we set aside the fourth bedroom for toys for now, yippee!) We learned how to create custom shelving when we built our first home, which has been the blessing that keeps on blessing us. We discussed what we wanted to keep in the closet, and designed the look together. He did all the cutting and installing...I spackled, sanded, and painted everything.
The closet started with your typical builder grade shelf and a rod.
First we added a second upper shelf and also a lower shelf.
My little guy loved being able to help Daddy.
A divider and additional shelves were added.
And now all of this stuff:
Looks like this. Ahhh, much better.
