I mentioned in this post that I was really excited about getting the curtains in the mail that my mom made for Bonnie’s nursery. They came not too long ago, and I immediately snagged some curtain rods and hung those things! I love the way they turned out, and the way they look with the rest of the nursery… just what I had in mind.
Now for Bonnie’s closet. It’s a really small closet, but I’ve done my best to make it as functional as possible without putting much money into it.
We bought the white shelf from Walmart. It was $17, but we had a $7 gift card (long story about the gift card.) I used baskets and boxes that we already had on hand.
Here are the contents of each of the boxes, from top left to bottom right:
- receiving blankets
- empty box reserved for baby lotion, baby shampoo and wash, nail clippers, and other toiletry items
- travel wet bags for diaper bag
- bath towels, wash cloths, and bath books that my dad bought for Bonnie
- Bonnie’s bows and headbands
- winter hats and gloves
- another empty box
Hanging on the inside of the closet door is our big wet bag for cloth diapers. And on the top of the white shelf are my diaper bag and Bonnie’s baby bathtub.
On the top shelf of the closet are five 16-quart plastic boxes containing clothing that will not fit her at first. Her 0-3 month box is empty right now, because those clothes are in her drawers and hanging in her closet, but when she outgrows them, I will store them away in the assigned container. The boxes are labeled: 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months, 9-12 months, and 12-18 months. I’ve decided to get one more box labeled “18-24 months.”
Hanging in the closets are her dresses, shirts, outfits, and jackets. Her onesies, pants, leggings, socks, and skirts are in her changing table drawers.
Bonnie’s leggings, shoes, and socks are in the drawer below this one. I forgot to take a picture of them!
I made the drawer dividers out of a cardboard box, so they aren’t exactly attractive, but they were free.
The very top drawer of the changing table is reserved for cloth diapering stuff, but I will save that for another post!
