I know that not everyone is on Pinterest and maybe you are and don’t “get” the big deal, but for me when it comes to projects and inspiration I am like a
crack Oreo addict to that site.
We have a number of closets in our home, I am sure most of you do….but it seems like wherever the builder of this house had extra space he added a door and some shelving. Great right…well some of these spaces are awkward and honestly putting a door in some places just seems to take up more space than you are saving.
My point? I have 2 closet spaces that I am thinking would be great turned into more of a nook space:
1. One of the closets in our sons room.
2. The entryway closet.
What does this have to do with pinterest?
I have been pinning “nook” like spaces for at least a year…here are some of my tops for our sons room:
His “nook” will definitely hold books and also serve as a desk space.
Love the hanging organization in this desk nook.
This is amazing and would have been perfect for my not-so-little-anymore bookworm, but now that he is in middle school he needs a desk space.
Last but not least, I love the clean lines of this and the shelving for books.
For the entryway I need a place that has bins and shelves but also still has hanger potential, without detracting from what might work for others if we sold the house. This has to be a nook without books. I have some ideas how this will work in our space, and here are some photos that I am drawing ideas from:
Love this with the bench and hooks, plus those baskets for mittens or hats or shoes, but there are 6 of us and that might not cut it in MN winters.
Last one, again love the bench hooks and storage underneath.
Anyone else turned a closet into a nook space and LOVE it?
I am hoping to share some exciting changes around here soon!
