I know I haven’t had a chance to get the full nursery reveal up here yet, but I promise it will be up this week or next! Can you guys believe I’m already 37 weeks this week?! Holy cow! I have been nesting like crazy and finalizing everything I can before our baby girl arrives this month. I really wanted to make her closet as organized and neat as possible, because there is SO. MUCH. BABY. STUFF! I have become more minimalistic over the past year, and really did not want or need unnecessary baby items. Even with all the necessities, it was hard to organize the small closet in her room with all of the toiletries, clothes, and gadgets. I worked with Jessica from California Closets to really maximize the space and I love how it came out!
It’s nothing fancy, and I’m okay with that. It’s practical and works so well for our family, and left us with extra room to put things as time goes on and we get more baby stuff. Working with California Closets was great! They come into your home and identify the space you want to do over, and start by taking measurements and asking a variety of questions. When my consultant, Jessica, works on closet projects, she likes to measure how much hanging space her client is currently using, and identifies the quantity of shoes, handbags, drawers, etc. It helps her when explaining her new design and comparing what they are currently using and what they will gain from working together. What’s great about California Closets is that their design consultants will collaborate with you to create a custom design that meets your needs, reflects your personal style, and works within your budget!
I love the cube organizers because they are a great way to organize so many things. I stored Layla’s books here so they are easy for her to grab when she’s old enough, plus it will keep them orderly. I’m storing some random things such as lotions and soaps, bathing suits, and hats in the baskets on the bottom. In the vintage locker baskets, I have her burp clothes, bibs, and small toys and rattles. On the top shelf I have these stackable organizers, which is where I have the extra wipes, medicine, and just a few random things. I also have some extras on hand up there for what ever we need them for.
To organize Layla’s clothes, I put all her outfits and sleepers in the closet, and separated them by months with these cute dividers I found and printed off Pinterest. I rolled all of her onesies and put them into her bureau inside of drawer organizers.
For now, I have two diaper bags in there on the floor, and I’m using the stackable unit for all of her baby carriers. When Layla arrives soon enough, I will be sharing all about our baby wearing journey, which I am super excited about! But anyway, I really learned to utilize all of the space we had in this closet and I can’t wait to dress my baby girl in all of her cute clothes. Not only does California Closets help transform closets, but they do mudrooms, pantries, and much more! Scheduling your own consultation is super easy and many locations offer seasonal promotions or financing options.
