So, based on some of the advice I got from you ladies the other day, I decided to give this whole baby in a closet thing a try. And it's going well so far! I have a lot of work I need to do, but I managed to accomplish this:



Which is fine.

But this....



... Is not so much 'fine'...

I'm very slowly finding new places for all of it (AKA: THE TRASH), but I'm pretty sure my husband is going to kill me when he gets home.

I wish we had decent size closets. In our master bedroom ( lol, it's not a master it's a foot bigger then the kid's room we have two closets. Each closet is small, can't even walk into them.
Keeping a baby in our room for 4 to 6 months (again) is going to stink.

That's a cozy corner for a baby.

It's a great time of year to declutter!

My biggest problem with this apartment is that there is just not a lot of storage space considering the amount of stuff we have. It's a big place, considering (1178 square feet)... but most of that is in the bedrooms... which is GREAT because my kids have a huge room. I have two closets that size. The one I'm doing the "nursery" in is my master. I have two other small closets, but that's pretty much it.

This wouldn't be a huge deal except I run my business out of my home too. I design and make clothes so I have fabric and clothes that need to be reconstructed stuffed freaking EVERYWHERE. I need a 3,000 square foot house with 5 bedrooms and a craft room. I'm going to write a letter to Ellen or something.

Writing a letter isn't such a bad idea, she loves to give stuff away

Looks great so far!

Looks great!!! We moved out of our 675 sq. ft. 2br 1ba home when I was expecting #5. We had 2 cribs in our br and a bunk bed in the other. Good Luck.

Seems you got the right idea I would just make sure theres good ventilation. is there any way you can keep the bed for baby on the side without clothing and maybe take the changing table out of there? Maybe put the changing table outside the closet?

The clothes on the top are actually coming out completely and I'm mounting two little swivel fans in there. The door has been taken off the hinges entirely and there will be a thin curtain tied back at each side.

Looks good to me!

I know what you mean about storage. We have three closets total in this house, and they are pretty much full. The biggest challenge is when Santa needs to use my house to story his toys

It looks really nice. Storage is tough. Maybe check IKEA. We went there for the first time last week and they had lots of storage ideas and options.
