I’m so excited to show this project off!! Creating this has been on my mind almost since we found out we were having a girl back in January! I needed a cute way to show off all the adorable outfits and dresses we would be receiving!!
DIY Baby Armoire
I saw this idea to redo a bookcase on Pinterest and immediately added it to my Pinterest Nursery board. If you have been reading my bump updates you know we’ve been searching to buy a used bookcase for some time, but I just couldn’t wait any longer and my parents (they are awesome!!) decided they would like to help us get this big item. Off to Target we went to get a bookcase!
My husband put it together that night, even though it kept him up late since he had work to do after. He is such a servant!! He just knew how excited I was to get started hanging clothes!
It was not too hard to put together (he said), and he purposefully left out adjustable shelves…
Here it is, finished, that night:
We also left the backing off the shelf. I don’t mind the gray of the wall showing through. Just wait until you see it with clothes!! I added tension rods so that I could hang clothes. And these nifty “size it” closet organizers I got at my first shower!
Aren’t these hangers so elegant? I got them from the HomeGoods store! I was able to spend 30 minutes on Monday hanging up clothes (by physical size, not the number on the tag) and realized I would have to go out and buy more hangers!
Yesterday, I bought more hangers, spend awhile organizing all the clothes and trying to fit it all in. I think Baby Girl is going to have enough clothes. We particularly have the most 3-6 month range.
Here is a close up of the top portion (newborn to 6 months):
And more 6 months size clothes and 9 month:
Of course, I have no idea how long Baby Girl will be in each size, etc. But at least I have an organized system and I can easily see what I have!! Love this DIY Baby Armoire!!
Next project: either the curtains or organizing the changing table area…
