Extra closet storage

Kids Closet Organization 41 minutes ago
By removing the doors to the closet in my childrens rooms I was able to fit storage inside in the form of an IKEA Expedit. I then created a valance along the top to hide those things you don't want to see!

    The doors were sliding doors from the 1950's and not bifold. Those would have been easier to work with!

    got it...sliders are a pain. If you ever do want to add some doors, bifolds should still work...but it would hide your beautiful work... :)

    Very cool use of space. Great thinking outside the box (no pun intended)

    Love it - so much easier to get organized when everything is within eyesight! And that chevron fabric is fabulous!

    I have have done this in several of my closets. I have done it in my office as well (small bedroom with a small closet) and it's great for storing office supplies, books etc... I also recommend it for foyer closets to give school kids a pickup and

    I love this! Are the square storage bins that you put on the shelves from Ikea as well?
