Change Table to Closet Organizer

My hubby built a beautiful change table for our second and it has been a dumping ground for quite a while now since our babes is out of diapers!  I couldn't bear to send it to the basement, so I figured out how to keep it in her room, plus actually make it work as something other than a change table.  Here is the final result!

It was a lucky fit!  The change table just fit perfectly in her closet with less than a foot to spare.  She doesn't have enough room in her closet to fit her clothes (single rack only at this point), so we bought a dresser for her.  Still not enough room.  So I grabbed all of her baby baskets that we used for bedding, socks, wipes, etc., and repurposed them for new storage in the middle and on the bottom level. 

 The top level was relegated to shorts, leggings, pants, and bloomers.  Short sleeve shirts, underwear, socks, and pj's all moved to the dresser.  Short dresses hang on the rack and longer dresses hang on a pant hanger down the side of the change table. 

Tutus and pettiskirts go up top with other miscellaneous things.  And it all fits!  :)

And last but not least, I made some cute tags to identify the contents of each basket.  For now, she has to look inside each basket (or try to remember what goes where) since she doesn't read yet.  But she loves it and I love it!  Click here to make the tags.

Linking up with some great parties!
