Checkered Storage Closet {Reveal}

Did you guys just love the checkered wall post from yesterday? It is always fun to take a simple thing and make a big impact… even in a storage closet!

I am so pleased with how well this closet turned out. It is everything I wanted when I set out to redo it: Cute. Fun. (and most importantly) Organized!

As I mentioned before, I bought all these storage containers at Wal-mart and then used my Cameo to cut out all the labels for each one. Sure, I get it. It isn’t a cute or fun as wire baskets, metal buckets and brightly colored totes… but I needed something functional and sturdy for this space.

I added some brightly colored knobs that I bought at Hobby Lobby on the checkered wall so I could hang things up and get them up off the floor. My my purse, diaper bag, stitching bag and red “bag o’ fun” each have a place to reside.

Lets do a few a few before and after’s just to see how bad it was before and how amazing it is now…

ahhhhh!!! I just love it so much! I don’t have to deal with those crappy plastic storage bins that never open or close. Every bin has a shelf so nothing is really stacked on top of each other. Everything is labeled. Nothing is on the floor!! And Spencer loves it because he can open the door and find exactly what he needs and doesn’t have to dig through stuff anymore.
