DIY Cedar-Lined Closet
A cedar lined closet is one of life's little luxuries that you can't fully appreciate until you've got one! I recently used cedar planking to line the closet in my son's nursery, and the end result is absolutely stunning - and smells amazing to boot! If you love this project, you can find more easy and affordable DIY ideas on my blog, Love & Renovations.
Originally, the closet was mostly functional but not ideal for a nursery. It had wire shelving in it, no hanging space, and wasn't really anything special to look at!
I started by removing all of the shelving and marking the studs on each wall in my closet. I used a level to draw a line all the way down the wall to help me know where to nail in.
Once my studs were marked, I began cutting the cedar planks down to fit the wall (using my miter saw), and then nailing the boards into place with a nail gun - be sure to nail directly into the studs! Repeat the process on each of the walls of the closet. I also added cedar cove molding in each of the corners of the walls for a finished look - if you choose to skip that step, you'll want to be extra careful to be sure that your boards meet up neatly for a clean look.
Once the closet was fully lined, I added a hanging rod and a dresser in the bottom half of the dresser and called it complete! The dresser looks absolutely beautiful, and it smells wonderful every time I open the door.
