How to Gain More Space: A Repurposed Closet Makeover
Need more space? A repurposed closet makeover is the answer. We transformed our closet into a storage and kid craft space.
Welcome back to the One Room Challenge Week 3!
I made some serious headway on this room this past week due to a couple days off for fall break.
You can find all my behind-the-scenes updates on my Instagram Stories under ORC Bonus Room.
Also, don't forget to check out the progress all the other ORC bloggers are making in their homes… the inspiration is endless!
This week I want to share with you how we made a standard closet in our bonus room move on to bigger and better things.
We repurposed this space to maximize our toy storage and leave room for kid crafting supplies.
Now keep in mind, we are only 3.5 months into our pregnancy, but I'm a planner at heart.
This bonus room makeover is prompted by the fact that we know we will be spending a lot of time up there and we want it to be the main toy hub, so hopefully this space will do the trick.
I won't show you the styled and finished product until week 6, but here is a sneak peak of how we have repurposed the closet to maximize its functionality.
It was a little tough fitting the countertop in because we made it fit so well, but it ended up working well. I just need to do a little touch-up painting on a few of the areas.
I didn't want to give too much away before the big reveal on November 7th, but what do you think of this new and improved version?
