Changing Station Closet

After seeing this photo from Pottery Barn Kids I was inspired. I wanted to try and recreate this functional space in Kale's closet. The price tag for this look is a little over $1500 . . . . on sale.

Isn't it lovely . . . so coordinated, organized and outrageously expensive. I used things we already had on hand and created a changing station in Kale's closet that has everything I need in arm's reach.

Not quite PB kids ready, but for $0 I'll take it! The shelves were installed by the previous owners, the dresser was mine as a child and I made the bulletin board awhile back.

A few baskets and containers and we're done. When we get around to painting his room, I would like to paint the inside of the closet as well. It's amazing how much larger his room feels now with the closet doors taken off.

you are so right about the expensive price tags these designer closets come with! So disappointing! They should be given a realistic budget and then asked to do the required job.... I bet they won't be able to do anything as nice as you did!
Great job.... seems like I need to look what I already have that I can use to beautify my closet!

A $1500 look for zip, zilch, nada? You can't beat that! You did a great job creating a functional space and freeing up floor space in his room. I've said from day 1 that when we guy our dream home, my daughter's dresser is going right in the closet. I know she'd much rather have the extra space to play :)

Great job. I love the look and love that it cost you nothing and you used stuff you already have. I am so glad I found your blog.
