All it had was a simple wire shelf and there was no storage. You can see early on the baby stuff was just piled on the floor.
We looked into building something, but we found a cheaper alternative at Home Depot.
We decided to leave the top shelf and then design the rest of the closet around that. You start with these metal brackets that makes the entire system adjustable.
This was so important for me because baby clothes are small, but as our Little Man gets bigger, we knew that we would need bigger spaces for his clothes. We also wanted slide out drawers for all those little socks :)
Luckily the Closet Maid system made all of this possible. We took our ideas to our local Home Depot, picked up all the arts we needed, and we were back at home in an hour installing the closet.
I just LOVE how it turned out!
We got the slide out drawers and now have plenty of storage.
Thanks to the little brackets, the entire system can be adjusted or added to as our Little Man grows!
Now our Little Man just needs to arrive so we can put all these cute clothes on him! 3 weeks to go :)
