Girl’s Room Closet Organization Before and After

Last week I shared a beautiful tour of my daughter’s bedroom. What wasn’t shown was my dirty little secret. Well, more of a messy little secret – the disaster that was tucked behind the doors of her closet. We were in need some serious closet organization. Today I’m going to share our closet makeover, including my new organization system for winterizing her closet.
I’m the type of person who gets really excited about organization. Like, really excited. My daughter does not share my enthusiasm. So, since we moved in a couple of years ago, her closet has been in a constant state of disarray.
Our problem wasn’t lack of space – we were just not using it well. Her closet was stuffed with summer clothes, winter clothes, outgrown clothes, and everything in between.
So this weekend, I went online to Lowe’s to use the Rubbermaid Storage Planner.
After playing around a bit, I decided on the Rubbermaid® HomeFree Series™Closet Kit and added the 2-Drawer Unit, which we found easily in-store.
The best part about this kit is how versatile it is. We were able to adjust our plans a few times until it was just right – no cutting required.
To organize the space better, I sorted all of her outgrown clothes to store elsewhere for her younger sister to use later (aren’t hand-me-downs the best?). I decided to use our existing bins more efficiently by placing them on lower shelves where she can reach them.
I used two bins for summer clothes that she still fits into, so she can easily access them when temperatures rise again. Two more bins are for clothes that she has yet to grow into, so they are out of sight, but not out of mind.
The result is an organizer’s dream.
I’m so glad I decided to add in these drawers – they work great for her gym clothes and dance gear.
You might be wondering why I didn’t hang my final rod for additional lower hanging space. The answer is, while we do plan to install our remaining pieces eventually, we decided to leave it open for toy storage. Part of the reason we chose this system is because we knew we could adjust it as our family needs change.
And with all the extra space we created, this solution keeps us both happy.
I guess this is one less dirty little secret to keep!
