When Hope was ready to move into a room of her own, there wasn't a spot for her with the other kids, so I decided to make her a room in my walk-in closet. My neighbor had given me the idea when she made a little nursery for her newborn... It was a big job to remove all the things that had accumulated in there... Somehow, there was way more then just clothes in there :)~
Then I took off the door and hung curtains on pressure rods so that I could close them when she is sleeping.
I used a toddler bed with her old crib mattress. Because there is an angled wall in the closet, the bed had to be built in place.
I made her bedding by cutting a twin quilt in half and binding it with blanket binding. She wanted a princess bed so I hung a set of pink curtains from the rod that used to hold my clothing. They can be closed for a little hideout effect if she is in the mood for a fort. A little step stool also doubles as a night stand for her to put things on.
I hung a floor cloth on the wall, that I had painted a long time ago, above the bed.
A bug nightlight from IKEA has a nice glow in the middle of the night...
I used a pressure shower rod to hang her clothing from above the shelving along the top of the closet.
I used bins with their lids removed for extra clothing storage...
The built-in shelving made a nice place to store toys and books...
Including her tea tray with her tea set... which is always in use :)
This has been a wonderful way to give Hope her own space and it is very easy to keep clean.
