Ready for more details on this bright and bold little boy nursery closet?! I am sharing all the scoop today, so now that you know how we built the main components of the closet – the shelves, the drawers, the rods, etc., you can see how its organized!
Below, you can view more photos, sources [+ a couple new ones], and a tiny bit more DIY instruction, so LET’S GO!
These “milk crates” are from Target, but are no longer available. The labels are simply printed on patterned scrapbook paper, cut out, laminated using this one here and then attached with a small 1 inch square of Velcro.
Unfortunately, these plastic tubs from Target are no longer available either! The labels were made by printing on white cardstock, punching out the circle with a large, round paper punch (2″ punch I believe) from Michaels, laminated and then clipped on with small decorative clothespins, also from Michaels.
The teal chalkboard box was in the cards & party section with other gift wrapping materials at Target. I simply took white chalk, traced along the outer edge and then wrote in the middle. The “HEY HANDSOME” art was a DIY using silver foil and my laminator
(man I love that thing!) and I did it the exact same way as the DIY holiday art I created last year. This was inspired by a piece I saw on minted and wanted to give it a shot on my own!
I just loved this little decorative navy & white suitcase when I spotted it and once I got it home, it just so happened to fit just right on the shelf. The custom birth stats board was a gift from my aunt who also gave one to Henry when he was born. Love them so 🙂
Once again, this navy striped plastic bin was a Target find! I have 2 of them, one for Holiday gear and the other for extras. The holiday gear bin has come in handy – once each holiday is over, I washed the pj’s & outfits for the last time and packed them away in here. When Halloween rolled around this year, I hated digging through the clothing bins looking for something I was just sure Henry wore in a size ____, but it was actually a size ___. Now, I have it all right here, to pull out for upcoming holidays for Simon to sport or for future baby #3. my FAVORITE labels worked great on the bins and the pull-out drawers.
These drawers are the best! They glide so well and are almost self-close. We have 4 of them, which seems to be just right for the need-to-get-at-quickly essentials. For the labels – I used the “Jenna Sue” font which I downloaded from www.dafont.com, printed them out on cardstock, cut them to size and then stuck them in the silver label holders. They are self-adhesive, so I peeled the backing off and stuck them on the front of the drawers.
The personalized “Simon” burp cloth above was a gift from embroider moore. She is THEE sweetest gal and has created THEE cutest gifts for so many of my friends’ babies. You must check her out! I promise you won’t be disappointed.
In order to keep Simon’s clothes in size order, I knew I wanted clothing rod labels, but couldn’t seem to find any that matched or that I liked. I decided to purchase plain white clothing dividers and make my own. I found this digital scrapbook paper on etsy, and after purchasing them, I had the files printed at FedEx / kinkos. I selected which prints I wanted to use for my labels and then traced the outline of the divider on the paper. Next, I cut along my lines, placed the cut-out paper on the divider and then applied mod podge with a foam brush. After I let it sit for 24 hours, I created a label with my label maker, using clear label tape and then pressed it on the front of the divider.
Oh and I almost forgot to mention, the most popular question lately seems to be, “Where is the shoe cubby / organizer in the right-hand corner from?” The one thing I realized I didn’t include in the source list from the reveal! It was actually mine from years ago. When we had a custom closet installed in our master closet a couple of years ago, we moved this cubby to the hall closet where it lived temporarily. While working on the nursery, I decided I needed something to stick in the corner of the closet that would provide some function, so there it went. It just so happened to fit perfectly in that space and now is the home for his itty bitty shoe collection, compliments of big brother, Henry 🙂
I think [and hope] I covered it all from top to bottom. If I did miss something, please feel free to email me for more information. I said this before, but I will say it again, I am a firm believer in the ability to keep a space neat and tidy if everything in it has a home. Labels help, too, but most importantly, when the room or closet is in disarray, I take 5 minutes to put all strewn about items back where they belong. Everything has a spot, otherwise things would get haphazardly shoved from drawer to drawer or shelf to shelf and I would never find anything. Trust me. That happens in other places in our house, but not in here!
Have a wonderful weekend and I hope to see you back here next week! Thanks for reading and goodnight!
