My two girls share a cute, little, room. As they get bigger, the room gets "littler." Ever since Hallie was born, we have struggled with drawer space for the girls. As I was getting all the fall/winter clothes out and was all but jumping on the piles of clothes to fit in their drawers, I knew we had to do something! Besides, their clothes are only going to get bigger.
As I was making a mental list of all the options we had, Nate and I visited the Container Store early this Summer. Wow...I just stood there and gazed, looking at all the organizational stuff. Right then and there, I knew I had my answer!
Has anyone ever heard of Elfa? It's a organizational system that you can custom fit to meet any need you may have. It is expensive. So it went on our , "To save for" list. Soooo, a few months down the road...
Guess what, last week a friend gave me a coupon for 20% off the container store. Yahoo! Time to go shopping! Monday we took a trip to Columbus and came back with a closet!
I forgot to take a before picture so I took a picture of the empty closet.

Puttin' drawers together...even used a hammer. Nate stopped and watched for a second. Not sure if he was impressed or scared for his life.

Melissa's finished side.
Complete with clothes and all!
The empty space is where the girls laundry basket goes.
This project went so smoothly. Most of our projects have multiple trips to the hardwood store. It took about 2 hours, start to finish and no extra trips!
I LOVE it! I am already making plans for the next closet re-do!
